The Airush Switch 138 is a freeride board for the masses that features Airush’s original “eye” single concave bottom shape and progressive tip flex. The Switch is an easy board to dial into and accelerates easily through chop as the concave and more flex in the tips ensure easy-to-access grip with reduced chatter. Despite its more pronounced rocker, the Test Team riders were impressed with the easy upwind performance of the Switch even as the wind dropped. With good access to moderate pop and good amounts of flex in the tips, the Switch delivers forgiving freestyle performance by smoothing out the landings and reducing the demand for aggressive hold while loading up. The pronounced flex in the tips also guarantees softer flowing turns in transitions. The Switch 132 is a great choice for the aggressive beginner to advanced riders that want forgiving performance and optimum combination of lightwind drive and moderate wind freeride performance.

Footbed and Strap System: Autofit I Black
The Autofit I binding has good grip and nice footbed cushioning for the traditional strap and bed system. The Autofit I is more streamline with a thinner footbed than the Autofit II. Nothing fancy or outside of the box with this system, but good overall function and feel and easy Velcro adjustments.
