Airush Compact Active Bamboo 2017 Surfboard
The focus of Airush in the design of the compact has been on creating the ultimate all round wave board that rides well in all conditions. And they certainly did! The new shape ensures that the board is super easy to turn around in strong wind and high waves. But the Compact also has enough speed to make it a fun board on less ideal days. The Airush Compact is really a super deal, the Compact Flytech comes with fins and tailpad.
If we look at the shape, it is noticeable that the board is longer and wider than its predecessor to make the board feel stable at high speed. The single concave shape of the bottom makes the board a bit more playful and gives you speed if you want. The nose of the Compact has a nice rounding so you can make hard top turns. The narrow tail of the Airush Compact makes the board easy to control with a lot of wind and at high speed. You also kick the tail easier in the wave if you're doing good donw the line top turns.
Active Bamboo Construction
The Airush Active Bamboo construction combines Airush's drive to a durable kiteboard with the patented active stringer for durability and control and bamboo deck. The Compact Active Bamboo is made with Entropy Super Sap Resin Systems. The materials used in this epoxy are 'waste products' from industrial processes.
