Default Damn! No FSW 81!!!!!!

I was so looking forward for a new version of the Freewave 81 ... but it is out! It is really a pity. Now I have to hurry to find a 2017 left over!!!!!!!!!

Hi,

If you're looking for ± the same volume as that of the 2017 Kode Freewave 81, have a look at the 2018 AIR Freewave 83 :

Hi Davide,

The A.I.R. FreeWaves have a little less directional traction but they remain very, very fast. They're essentially super short versions of the Kode FreeWaves so yes, they would work in bump and jump conditions.

For your reference, we tried the first concepts of these boards in Mui Ne, Vietnam where there are no waves, just huge chops, classic B&J conditions.

Thanks,

That is a bit of an odd suggestion. It is not just a matter of volume numbers. As far as I can tell the AIR 83 is a "cut out" version of the Freewave 86, with identical width of 59 and change. It will ride a good half size bigger then the Freewave 81 ...

But not all is lost: miraculousIy I found a left over 2016 FSW 81 at a local shop. In Carbon, I am now a very happy camper. This is one of the best boards I ever used. I loved in Baja Califonia, and it is perfect for my 70 Kg in San Francisco in 4.3-5.0 conditions. A real pity that it is out of production.
