The name “Converse” comes from the fact that the board is a surfboard when you take the straps off. Not a surf style kiteboard, but indeed a true surfboard. So you can use a single board for two separate (but closely related) sports. When coming up with this board the people at Airush had in mind the traveling kiter who wants the versatility of having a surfboard for no wind days and a light wind kiteboard. This board is also ideal for the dedicated strapless or strapped surf kiter who would like to have the enhanced durability when compared to a normal surfboard.

  • Ability to run a smaller kite thanks to the higher volume the board offers. This means you can ride more vertically, with more snap than imaginable a few years ago.
  • For dealing with the increased speed and abuse, the board has reinforced areas around the foot strap, top deck and fin areas.
  • If you are a lightweight rider or if you really enjoy high wind wave riding, there is in the Converse line this year a 5’6” specific kite model.

Converse is indeed a 2 in 1 board. Straps off and becomes a great surfboard. It is stable and easy to handle in choppy waves. When used with a kite it feels a bit heavy. This board relies more on the water flow and waves than on external traction,...more

Airush has done a good job with this board. 2 in 1 performance. You can use it for surf and kiteboarding. Just take the straps off and you are ready to surf. It has extra volume so it floats nice, but you might find it difficult to steer when you...more
