Hi Peterggg,
definitely the Kode 122 works much better for Freestyle compared to a Carve. And some years ago there were Freestyleshapes, mainly protos and some productionboards (freesex, and a board from Tabou).
You should take the wood carbon version. A lighter board helps to get the lift for the fluid intiations of your freestyle tricks. You also should fix the straps on the inboard inserts with a single strap on the back.
I travel a lot and took last year the Kombat 122, the prerunner of the KODE 122, on some trips. The board was perfect to play around and I could easily fix a 8,0.
I am not sure if I will take a 111 or 122 KODE, but it will be definitely a KODE again having in the quiver when travelling around.
I would describe the board as a lively freerider, which gives you the chance to sail more freeride orientated or to sail freestyle oldschool with a chance to practice some newschool tricks. It will help to fix a shorter fin than the 38 in your box.

Sure, the pure freestyler is the FLARE, but 106 liters are perhaps not enough. With which sailsize and which windforce do you want to start to sail? Which sliding moves are you gonna practice on the board?
Chris
