This airborne Freestyle board, is exclusively designed for the generation of freestyle moves that we now see on the water and aspire ourselves. These boards are not just tested but used and abused daily by professional Freestyle riders on Maui and around the globe.
The all new short shape combines extreme power and pop for air moves while keeping full rail carving capabilities. The rocker with a longer flat section is only surpassed by our Freerace line, focussing on early planning and top end speed. The gradual nose rocker has been reduced for control and ease when switching from tail to nose glides.
The Air PRO features generous carbon patching from in front of the mast track all the way into the tail, as well as beneath and around the padded areas.
Further design features include an increased tail volume and bevel for reverse sliding tricks as well as Freestyle insert positions with double screws on the back strap.
Gradual curved deck under the foot strap area and customized Freestyle insert positions with double screws on the back strap.
PRO is our most advanced built, combining light weight, a crisp feel and excellent durability all into one lay-up. Driven by the worldwide, year round research and passion of our team and customers, The Pro Construction evolves and improves constantly. The result is the best weight s with the least warranty issues in the industry. All Pro boards come in distinct colors and a lightly sanded finish.
Professional Freestyle riders as well as those aspiring to get there.

New construction, new outline, new sizes going as small as 16cm, this is the new MFC FREEESTYLE PRO UL. The outline has a narrow cord and the surface is very small allowing your board to perform all the new double moves on tour. The prepreg construction makes for a very light fin compared to the rest of the materials on the market; this will keep the tail of your board very light under your feet and easy to lift for your freestyle moves. The fin focus is Freestyle.
Available for Powerbox
Sizes from 16cm to 22cm
On the Air 99 I run the deeper double concave through the front of the mast track to brake the chop/soften the ride while bringing air (reduce wet area) to the the bottom below the mast track and front straps and I reduce them through the tail to bring more crispiness, power and easy to pop & detach the tail from the water. Also I carry the double concaves even further into the nose area that together with a straighter nose rocker they add direction extending the reverse sliding time.
You might ask why concave with double concaves. That was the bottom we always dreamed of, but it wasn’t until 1996 that the CNC machine allowed us to bring it across as shaping blends from 1mm to 3mm are almost imposible by hand and even harder having to mirror it on the other side. Generally speaking with today’s parameters single concave boards have the most grip but also are hard to change rails once you are committed to one of them. The double concaves create a pivoting point, breaking the water and softening the ride, making it easy to switch from rail to rail.
