AIRUSH COMP REVIEW

Length: 5’10” / Width: 18.75” 

Thickness: 2.3” / Fins: TRI 

The Airush Comp is a more traditional short board shape that’s designed to be on a wave and offers a more authentic surf feel. The higher tail rocker and rounded pin tail keep it smooth and manoeuvrable at faster driving speeds. This a board that you want for that big wave day and wind day at your favorite spot. The longer outline and rail length keep this board controllable and smooth from top to bottom and the narrow tail and thin rails grant biting bottom turns and snappy off the top performance. The custom Epoxy construction also keeps the classic surf style look and feel but employs some technology like the EPS core which is lighter and stronger than traditional cores. Laminates are also reinforced in the key areas to minimize heel dents and improve hull integrity over the long term. The Airush lineup uses futures fins but the boards come blank, so riders can fit them with their desired fin size and stiffness. The Comp is best suited to advanced riders that want to make the most of the big days.
