Switch Team Kiteboard
Intuitive & refined performance freeride shape.
Step down rail for maximum edge control.
Uni-directional centre stringer for added response
The Switch Team is an extremely responsive performance freeride board which excels when loading, popping, landing and cruising. Even in the choppiest conditions this board is really fun and easy to set on rail. The Switch Team is playful for carving, benefitting from just the right amount of grip with the thinner rails, tuned flex, and outline. Transitioning through carves along the board’s rails is predictable and intuitive, while the uni-directional basalt I-beam structure offers improved stiffness between the feet and faster reflex for enhanced freestyle performance.
High performance lamination.
Refined 3D shape.
The layup found on the Switch is strictly focused on durability and responsiveness, ensuring a perfect combination for all freeriding needs. This construction is simple yet effective for smooth, easy, and forgiving riding.
Designed to decrease weight and maximize efficiency for lighter riders, the basalt construction is layered with heel reinforcement to balance the strength to durability ratio.
No more pulled or broken inserts from hard landings or crashes. Featured on all Airush boards, the ABS Reinforced Inserts create the ultimate amount of durability, whether riding with boots or straps.
The Airush Multi-zone Biotech Construction is a vertical paulownia wood core sandwich. This multilayer construction creates a consistent density from the natural material. Our wood cores are renowned for their response, durability and smoothness, and are combined with a versatile combination of laminates depending on each model’s requirement, for all-round performance and durability.

“This is a great board made even better. The limits that are imposed when developing the Switch sort of come off when you move to the switch team.If the Switch is a very constraint, very limited placement in design form. The Switch Team just pulls those constraints off. What can we do given less constraints? How can we make this board even better? It’s to accredit to the actual switch the Switch Team isn’t very far removed in terms of overall spec but what we’ve been able to do is make it look a little bit better and by adding a basalt unidirectional I-beam between the feet, managed to stiffen it up a little bit more and definitely given a lot more reflex so this board is, you can load up and pop just that much more.
Specifically I’ve reduced the amount of fiberglass in the laminations just to take a little bit of weight out of the board. We’ve then added a unidirectional basalt fiber I- Beam between the feet so that stiffens up the area between the feet and the basalt gives really good reflex so if you load up against this board you can really feel it snap back in place that much faster.It’s the Switch Premium. It’s the one that gives you just that little bit more.”
