MANUFACTURED ONLY from the highest quality fabrics, epoxy, and PVC core, our carbon fiber skimboards are well tested by the best skimboarders in the world, in the heaviest conditions on earth.  Here are some of the features of this board.

DOUBLE CARBON FIBER - Carbon Fiber is practically synonymous with top of the line in any industry. This fabric is highly coveted in skimboards for its extreme strength and stiffness. Carbon fiber fabrics are about twice as strong and stiff as E-Glass. Boards made with this material come out a little stronger, a little lighter and a whole lot stiffer than S-Glass boards.

SMALL HYBRID SHAPE is recommended for riders of any skill level between100 - 155 lbs. This board measures 51.50" x 19.75"

HYBRID SHAPE - Our best selling shape is well suited for riders at any skill level. Hybrids are a little shorter than most boards with a slightly blunted nose. This results in a board that sits comfortably in the pocket and makes it easy to wrap the wave. The increased nose area also makes it possible to squeeze additional speed out of the board by pumping hard and leaning forward.

5/8" THICKNESS - 5/8" is the thinner of the two options that exile offers.  The thinner profile makes the boards turn on a dime relative to their thicker brethren.  The additional manueverability does come at the cost of a little bit of speed, however.

NT FINISH - Our NT Finish (New Texture Finish0 is a high performance option that no other manufacturer offers (though some try to imitate) and new for 2014. This finish combines the strength, durability and slightly lighter attributes of our classic textured finish with great cosmetics for improve looks with no compromise in strength. This finish is also slightly smoother than our classic textured finish and requires slightly less prep work for proper traction adhesion.
