The Converse has more curve in the hip to keep a loose and lively feel. It has a straighter outline in the nose due to the increased length which maintains the classic feel and maintains drive through the turn.
The width on 5’11 Converse is comparable to the 5’8 Compact in the mid-point, but the Converse has a slightly wider tail. The wider tail keeps drive and maneuverability at lower speeds.
The Converse has a straighter back section going into a round tail, which keeps some drive through turns, specifically when combined with the higher rocker. The wide point on Converse is further back to keep the board loose and responsive.

The lightest construction on the market today, Airush’s patented Active Technology combines revolutionary flex and strength in a full carbon construction for unparalleled performance.
The key to the Active Stringer’s strength is the stiff and ultra-lightweight carbon I-beam through the center of the board. This prevents the board from over flexing and damaging the laminate when flexing beyond the working range. The secret to the Active Technology flex is the high memory polypropylene flex zone, which works in conjunction with the flexible bi-axial carbon skins to flex and compress within the working range.
The combination gives a perfect blend of maximum flex, minimum weight and maximum durability.
