Size Matters: UltraKode Choices

 

Float and Ride, or full speed towards some jumping ramps. Having the right size Ultrakode for your weight can make all the difference.

Using a wave board that is too big for your weight and sail size, can leave you feeling unable to make the turns you want. While a too-small board can prevent you from ever even getting onto those nuggets you dream of. To help you decide what will be the best Ultrakode size choice for your needs we have asked our Dream Team to give you some insights on what Ultrakode sizes they are using.

Jaeger Stone, Sarah Quita Offringa,  Flo Jung, Lennart Neubauer, Coraline Foveau,  and Rob Hofmann to answered the following questions:

  • What’s your height and weight?
  • Which UltraKode /Kode Sizes did you choose and why?
  • What Wind/Wave ranges do you use your boards in?
  • What Fin Sizes and Set up do you use and in which position?
  • If you had to choose just 1 size which would you choose?

 

Watch the Video’s below to find out which riders use which UltraKode sizes and decide what will be the best choice for you.
