Description

If you're getting frustrated with days where there's not quite enough wind to get you going on your twin-tip, then maybe it's time to consider a directional board to get you out on the water! They don't get much better than the Airush Choptop! Even if you’re a flat water cruiser, or an out and out wave junkie, then this is the board for you!


The Airush Choptop is an extremely efficient as a light-wind board alongside your twin tip. You can ride this board with even 50/50 foot pressure, meaning you can ride it for hours in straps without feeling like you are stood on your front foot (it's normal for regular surfboards to burn a leg riding in straps).

 

It's extremely good upwind, ideal for getting back to the top of the break, and letting you rip in much lighter winds with a smaller kite. Very stable at high speed in chop and rough water and will still keep a stable edge at high speed and under heavy loading, which means you can jump it !

 

Compliant and easy in the carve, it's solid and trusting, and far better than any other board for normal conditions.

 

For riders looking for the wave capabilities of a surfboard, with the low wind performance of a skimboard or dedicated light wind board and accessible strapless performance no matter what your level, the Airush Choptop is it!

 

Tucked Rails:
The Airush Choptop has a tucked rail which in simple terms, relates to a softer upper rail leading into a sharper lower rail giving a tighter grip and the ability to hold an edge like a twintip but with the lightwind planing ability of a surfboard.


Rocker:
Directional rocker with a flat entry, for early planing and stability at speed, complete with an intermediate tail rocker for snap in wave conditions.


Bottom Shape:

A single concave will initially get you up on the plane nice and early, couple this with a double spiral concave in the tail, which after years of research and development has been proven to provide added acceleration and speed over the water.

 

The bottom deepens from around the wide point back, through the fin area, deepening all the way through to the end of the board. The design tightens the turning arch, while maintaining down the line speed and drive.

 

When viewed from the side, the tail with the stringer’s end protruding from the tail block, with the spiral vee bottom, will have a rail line who’s bottom edge would have to curve back down to the stringer to meet at the peak of the vee at the board’s end. This re-curved area at the pod makes the bottom edge of the rail begin to “spiral” as it moves downward and inward toward the stringer.

 

Outline:

The Airush Choptop's wave inspired outline has a relatively far forward wide point for improved stability at speed maiking it perfect for riding smaller slower surf found at a majority of UK and Europeans breaks.

 

Fins:

Lightweight, bombproof Hexcore AR- fins are combined with the revolutionary new Surfinz box, this new box system allows up to 18mm of forwards adjustability along with heavy duty under skin installation. The patented conic stainless steel screw ensures long term durability full FCS compatability from box and fins.

Standard configuration as Tri fin, with Quad fin compatibility.

 

Construction:

The Flytech construction found in the Airush Choptop is most suitable for high volume kiteboards due to its low core density. The lightweight core is used in conjunction with directionally optimized glass for optimum flex and durability in conjunction with a high density foam sandwich. This ensures the board remains as light as possible and will still survive aggressive riding.

Airush also includes Active Carbon Technology making the Choptop as flexible as a PU board, but made from high modulus fibre. The patented ACTIVE stringer does not interfere with the flex, but stops the board from breaking when the board is placed under abnormal load. 20% Lighter than anything else on the market and as strong as our latest Flytech II construction.

Airush Choptop 5'3" (160cm X 48.5cm / ( 5.3”cm X 19”in):

For those who like to ride with power. The Airush Choptop 5'3" combines the abilities of a small wave surfboard with the throw around factor of a skimboard. Wide tail and flat rocker entry for incredible light wind performance, with great high wind control due to the “over the board” rider geometry. The 5’3” features a concave deck for a low centre of drive with improved strapless performance.

 

Airush Choptop 5'8" (172cm X 51.5cm / ( 5.8”cm X 20”in):
For medium to light-wind and heavier riders, the 5’8” offers enough buoyancy for paddle surfing up to an advanced 85 kg rider in small surf (up to shoulder high). The snub nose outline keeps the volume forward allowing for maximum planning.

 

Airush Choptop 5'8" LightWind (172cm X 60.0cm / ( 5.8”cm X 23”in):
The Airush introduces the Widebody concept to surf with the Choptop Lightwind Edition. This unique design pushes the envelope of extreme light-wind wave performance by allowing you to ride aggressively in the most marginal conditions. At the same time the wave engineered heritage ensures significant crossover surf potential.

 

**Price include footstraps, footbeds and fins**
