Has anyone tried the ozone code v3? Any experience with this board?

No, but I demo'd the v2. It didn't do it for me. Much preferred the Torque v2 - so bought that instead. I recenly had a ride on Len10's Torque V3 and found the difference was minimal. How that translates to the Code v3 I dunno. Jamie Overbeek smashes all of the records on a Code so that's something I suppose...

Yes mate, been riding it (both 132 and now also 129 for when it's nuking) for a while.
Also Jared here at the pond goes 24m on it. Apart from Jamie O. of course (pros can ride anything I suppose).
I love the board for it's versatility, and the slightly narrower width compared to other boards.
It works very well in chop, without the Shinn-style softness. It is obviously a bit harder but not as hard as some other boards, focussed on big air only. Rocker is also just perfect, to navigate through chop and smaller waves, while still working very well in flat water.
I think it's one of the best boards out there, and at a price point sub $1,000 including straps well priced. Underrated as usual as all Ozone gear, but I am actually happy this is the case ;-)

Got out on the ozone code v3 yesterday, have to say, it's a an awesome board. The board is great in the chop and super smooth, and great for boosting. Can't believe there's no hype about it. Very pleasantly surprised.

I have one that I was able to use a few times in stormy conditions and I usually ride a crazyfly raptor extreme. It looks to me it's faster than the raptor but I wasn't able to hold my edge as as well. Will try to ride them a bit "side by side" in normal conditions to see which one I prefer.

Hi @Kraut. Looking at buying this board, but in doubt which size is best. My weight is 78-80kg. I ride mostly at sea, in choppy conditions. Ozone recommends 138. This seems a bit on the large side. What's your experience?

I weigh a bit less than you but only a few kgs and the 1.38 is the right size for me. Handles open ocean conditions really well, there's a few round Lennox now.

I went down that route being told it was better than the monk, if it's really choppy conditions you ride in, don't hesitate, go out and get a shinn monk. The code is not even on the same planet.

Wow that's weird, but obviously is very subjective. I had the Monk/ette and Ronson and loved the latter. Others were just too soft, which does help with chop but doesn't work with jumping. The Code is a hybrid i.e. not as soft. Which makes it work for boosting as well. But I still find it cuts extremely well through the chop. I can go at full speed through chop without having spray or painful knees.
