Well, the Kode 80 is a pure wave board, especially good in big, clean sideshore waves. BUT, it achieves this by having a fast rocker, control oriented shape and generally just good high speed behavior. So, maybe somewhat paradoxically, it is an EXCELLENT B&J board too. This goes for the Pure Acid too.
Many mag tests over the years confirm the Acids (and now the Kodes, also the small ones) are great "freeride"/high wind blasting boards, so you don't need to fear their "side shore heritage" makes them to radical or anything.
