Starboard Kode 86 WoodCarbon, PlancheMag (France), Feb - Mar 2010

The Kode 86 is among the most tracking and most directional boards and at the same, it has a very good glide with a great sensation of crispness and stiffness. Tester's opinion: "With a good early planing performance, the Kode rides nice and high compared to the average board and still manages to ride nice and flat. I found it comfortable, with a very good ride and without any hard slapping in choppy waters. For me, it's the most versatile across freeride, freestyle and waves. It simply does it all so well."
