Airush Says:

The Switch delivers the benchmark in freeride performance, from beginner to advanced riders. The progressive flex curve is achieved through a combination of the tapered ABS rail, refined deck profile, abs flex tips and the biotech core. The three stage rocker and outline perform in synergy to offer a combination of upwind performance and comfort at speed, the result is the smoothest of rides and absolute refinement.

Our Testers Say:

“Nice comfortable board. Forgiving and easy to get upwind on,” Marko Bartscherer.

“Great control and upwind performance. Easy to edge and predictable handling,” Pat O’Connor.

“Very elegant board with really nice handling. Smooth ride in the chop and comfortable straps and pads,” Walid Jomaa.

Meet the 2013 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The 2013 Airush Switch features a bottom that is a single concave in the middle and flat in the tips. The flex pattern is very progressive with the tips being much more flexible than the middle of the board. Our testers reported that the Switch delivers a very smooth ride in large chop, great upwind performance, and predictable handling.

Our test boards were shipped with the Airush AFT Core straps and pads. These are simple, east to adjust, and easy to install. For the most part testers felt they were comfortable, but one tester commented that the pads were a little hard.
