Hi.
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 ?
Thanks

Hi,

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.

Yo,

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.
