Exile flipped the skimboarding world on it's head when we introduced the Dude! Cruise shape. Quite possibly one of the easiest and most fun boards to ride in our line up, the Dude! Cruise is shorter and wider than your normal skimboard. The wide surface area under your front foot creates a ton of speed and float, while the wing and swallow-tail keep it highly maneuverable. This shape planes extremely well and locks in down the line, making it a great choice for smaller, further out, or weaker conditions (although our team has proven there's very little it can't and handle). It might be impossible to ride the Dude! Cruise without a smile on your face. When in doubt, Dude! Cruise.
3/4'' Tapered to 5/8'' thickness means that the center of the core is 3/4'' thick and thins out to 5/8'' (roughly) in the nose and tail. This creates added buoyancy while keeping the board maneuverable, just not quite as responsive as the 5/8''. This thickness is typically more ideal for slight below average to slightly above average wave height and strength.
This rocker was developed by Sam Stinnett to incorporate more rocker in the nose and tail (approx. 2.5" in the nose), and reduce the footprint of the flat spot on the bottom of the board. This creates a board that turns on a dime in even the largest conditions. It does slightly slow the board down when planing, but if you run as fast as Sam does, that shouldn't hinder you.
Light, Strong, Durable, and preferred by riders who put more emphasis on performance than cosmetics. This is the finish the company was built on and the golden standard in which others imitate. Some sanding required for proper traction adhesion.
