THE RANGE

The fast rocker, thin rails and thruster fin setup option come together to improve the Kode FreeWaves wave performance while keeping their top speed and directional traction. They offer amazing versatility, performing equally well on flat-water, chop or medium to small waves.

Fin set-up

Single or thruster. You choose.
The smallest size (86) is delivered with a set of thruster fins that combines a MFC TF 19 center fin with Drake Natural Wave 11 side fins for a blend of speed, grip, maneuverability and stability in all conditions.
The bigger sizes (94103 and 109) are delivered with the new MFC FreeWave single fin for more speed, more directional stability and earlier planing.

SLOT AND US BOX?

The StarBox fits notched Slot Box fins for fast fit-‘n-go system.
It also fits US box fins for the classic system that pivots to reduce fin damage if you hit the reef.
Lightweight (13 grams) plugs seal unused boxes to reduce drag. Insert and secure them like you would with a Slot Box fin. To remove the plugs, loosen the side screw and push down gently on the front of the plug.

THIN and sharp rails

Rails are soft and thin in the nose for a smooth entry into turns without chatter,
allowing you to focus on exiting the turn with speed.

Sharper rails in the mid and back sections enhance grip, control and drive in the turns.
Sharp rails also help to get the board planing quicker, with better water release.

BULLET-NOSE ROCKER

Fast rocker with a low nose angle to reduce drag, maximize control and top speed. A flat between the mast track and front footstrap promotes early planing. A smooth tail-kick gives favor for responsive waveriding.

Bottom Shapes

Starboard’s ‘spiralling Vee’ bottom shape concept combined with a new double concave distribution gives the Kode FreeWaves their responsiveness, grip, reactivity and comfort.

The concaves are slightly shallower compared to the previous models and more evenly distributed throughout the bottom.

Fast. Forgiving.

“The Kode Freewave is a great board to get going in the waves, it’s fast and at the same time very forgiving, it doesn’t take too much effort to get planing, it keeps speed throughout the turns no matter how fast you going and no matter the conditions, it’s a great board for wave sailing and high wind blasting.”

Boujmaa Guilloul, on the 2019 Kode FreeWaves.

Yulex footstraps and thick pads

The new generation Drake footstraps are made with FSC-certified, sustainably sourced and plant-based Yulex foam. With 85% natural rubber content, CO² emitted during the manufacturing process is reduced by 80%. The remaining 15% of synthetic neoprene is kept to improve UV resistance.

Carefully sourced with the smoothest fabric for a comfortable feel.
The Kode freewaves feature 10mm thick footpads with a diamond grooving pattern that provides grip and comfort over extended sessions while being resistant to wear-and-tear.

OUR MOST INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY

The Kode FreeWaves are available in our new construction designed for the lightest weight but also the lowest carbon footprint; Flax Balsa. Natural end-grain balsa covers the bottom of the board, providing the board with its overall stiffness and reduced weight. The full sandwich deck uses natural uni-directional flax fibres with carbon stripes to reinforce and stiffen the most stressed sections. The rails features full-perimeter uni-directional flax fibres.

Carbon reflex

The Carbon Reflex construction is our lightest, most exclusive and limited edition flagship construction using the lightest biaxial carbon.

They offer more feel, more responsiveness and more flex than conventional boards. The Carbon Reflex is limited in stock, built to order with a four month delivery lead time.

STARBOX

Comes with four lightweight Starbox and one US box, and plugs to close off any unused boxes.

The Starbox system allows you to fit Slot Box fins in five seconds each while remembering your
last setting to get you on the water faster. It is also compatible with US box fins.

Slot and Us Box?

The StarBox fits notched Slot Box fins for fast fit-‘n-go system.
It also fits US box fins for the classic system that pivots to reduce fin damage if you hit the reef.
Lightweight (13 grams) plugs seal unused boxes to reduce drag. Insert and secure them like you would with a Slot Box fin. To remove the plugs, loosen the side screw and push down gently on the front of the plug.
