It’s not an issue of can the Futura survive jumping, the board can. You have to consider the landings. With outboard strap settings the Futura will be more difficult to land jumps then the Kode with more inboard strap settings. You are far more likely to spinout on landings with the Futura then the Kode.

The Futura is made for flat water and choppy-knee high and lower- condition blasting. If the swell/chop gets over knee high where the board can not freely ride up and down by simply flexing you legs, then you should consider the Kode. The Futura has greater speed and the Kode greater maneuverability.
