I use to have a biggerwave board for low wind days using 5.7 or 5.3.
Is the Kode 94 a wave board or it is more a freestyle-wave like the RRD or Goya One ?

The kode is more a freestyle/wave board.
I have sailed with it alot in Maui and like it.
It more a all around board.
pretty fast in speed for just cruising.
Jumping with this board is so easy and controlable.
wave riding it felt a bit big in the waves in Maui but I was mostly sailing with it
with 4.7 sail. 30+knots of wind.
So for sure if you are using 5.3 - 5.7 sails in lighter conditions it will work for you.
I have enjoy sailing with this board in Maui and this board is simply A+ WOW.
I have sailed with the Goya boards but I didn't like the carving of this board.
The Kode give you the carving and still keeping the speed while wave riding.

any experience with the Kode 86 and how it compares with the former PA86 ?

The Kode 86 is more towards wave. but still a good board for freestyle and freeride aswell.
It's much quicker in carving when wave riding reacts quicker then the 94.
Feels much comfortable in high wind to medium conditions.
5.3 - 4.5 sail will be a good choice on it
The kode 86 I sailed and tested it more as a freestyle board and it's very quick still keeping the balance in high shaka's, loops, spocks.
In the wave's i have enjoyed it because it's so simple to ride and it doesn't get nervous.
