I live in jacksonville florida where the break for skimboarding isnt too good so i was wondering if this would be a good board for me......I need a board with really good float as well any other options?

RESPONSE: Hey Jake, Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! For more prompter responses to questions, please email The Recruit is an excellent board for pretty much everyone, there is no limitations on who can and can't ride the board. The Recruit is made with Vinyl Ester Resin and E-glass. This reinforces the board, making it durable and last in tough conditions. It sounds like the waves break a little farther out at your home break, so I would recommend going 3/4's tapered for thickness. We plane down our 3/4's boards to 5/8's, in the nose and tail. This keeps the board more responsive and maneuverable when riding waves. We do this unless otherwise specified by the customer. With our shapes, you can't really go wrong with any of them. All of them are excellent shapes that work in any conditions. I would recommend checking out our Dude Cruise shape. It's wider and shorter, than an average skimboard. The Dude Cruise has a ton of float, and would be perfect for you and the break that you skim at, since the waves break out farther. The Dude Cruise is very stable and easy to ride. Being that the board is wider, this helps with popping and landing tricks, as well as being quiet floaty. If you have any more questions please feel free to email, or give us a call at (949)-492-0284.

Hey, im looking at buying a recruit. i recently snapped the large zap wedge i had after about 4 years and a lot of skimming done on it. Im starting to get where i can get to the waves i wanna ride but when i try and wrap them in ive lost most of my speed on the way out, and sink at the wave as i whip it around. ive read some of the other questions and it seems ive got a familiar story. I do most of my skimming on the outer banks or virginia beach, so yeah weaker waves so i know i need a nice 3/4 on the bigger side. Im about 5'10" 155, pretty quick, and ive read a lot of good stuff on the chub scout shape and it sounds like the width would help. Im looking for advice on size. i do a lot of snowboarding and selling snowboards in the winter so i know how weight ranges can become somewhat irrelevant when you know what you want out of a board. I realize im on the lower end of the scale for the medium so is it safe to say itd be overkill to go large chub scout? or do you think extra size would be helpful enough to be worth a little sluggishness on the wave? thanks for any input.

sorry i joined all these people in asking size questions where in the review column. seemed too far gone

RESPONSE: Hey Zach, Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards!For prompter replies to questions please email The Chub Scout seems to be growing and getting more popular on the east coast, especially for the conditions over there. The wider mid point also allows for plenty of float when side slipping out to waves, so the extra width in the board is going to help a lot. You can go with 3/4" but I recommend going 5/8" if your pretty quick in running. The 3/4" is going to still have plenty of float but, it's not going to be as responsive when popping tricks. Getting the large Chub Scout would be to much I think because it's going to be vary hard to turn on and wrap a wave. I think you would be safe getting the medium chub scout, the extra couple inches is going to make a big difference and it's something that you won't grow out of too quickly. For any other questions please email

hello there! I'm looking for an affordable board that floats and will last me a good 5 years but it also needs to be under 350.. I have a zap wedge and I'm looking for a board that i don't have to keep upgrading and upgrading each year because i don't have the money sadly i can ride the whitewash with my wedge but i need a board with good float that will take me out and i can do wraps and turns on the actual wave! I'm a girl about 5'6 115lbs which board should i get please help! thanks!

RESPONSE: Hey Maia, Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! For prompter responses to questions, please email We have a board, which I think you would benefit from greatly. The EX-1 is our entry board and is perfect for anyone who wants to progress in skimboarding. The EX-1 starts at $300 and is in your price range. The board is made with e-glass reinforcement and polyester resin, so your going to get a quality board and not have to worry about getting a new board each year. The EX-1 comes in the standard hybrid shape and comes in fives sizes; x-small, small, medium, large, and x-large. The x-small fits anyone from 95 lbs. all the way up to 130 lbs. I recommend getting a size larger, which would be the Small. Getting a size bigger can help you in a couple ways. Having a bigger board is going to help you reach the those farther waves and is going to help you maintain your float on the wave. The bigger board is also something that you can grow into over a couple years. If you have any more questions please email us or give us a call at (949)-492-0284.

Hey. Im planning on getting a new board. I'm not a beginner but I'm not close to being pro. I need a board that can get me further out because my shore break is far and its hard to get to with my current board. Im trying to choose between ex1 and the recruit. What should I do?

Response: Hi Aaron, Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! For prompter responses please e-mail As for your question both boards are great boards for the price. The EX1 is reinforced with E-glass Fiberglass and polyester resin. It comes in 5 of our world championship winning Hybrid Shapes that should suit your needs just fine. The Recruits are reinforced with E-glass fiberglass and a slightly better Vinyl Ester resin. Additionally you get the option of any of our shapes, sizes and thickness offerings so you do get a few more options to choose from. Regardless of what materials you get we would definitely recommend getting a board where you are lower on the weight chart and would probably recommend going with the 3/4" thickness to maximize speed and float to get out to those further waves. For any further questions, please email

I'm 6'6" and 205 lbs. I've been skimboarding for a few years now and want to upgrade to a new board. Am I better off with an extra large or extra extra large size (hybrid)? Also which thickness would be the best fit for me? Thank you in advance.

Hi Jon,
For faster replies please e-mail . Honestly you would probably be fine with either board. If you are faster and/or skim bigger waves the XL would probably be plenty big. If you maybe aren't as quick or skim smaller, weaker waves the XXL could do the trick a little better.

Hi, wondering a few things about sizes and such. 5'9, 135 lbs would I be better with a medium or an ms? Considering I'm growing quickly. Also what thickness would be better 5/8 or 3/4? The waves I ride vary quite a lot, often it's a pretty far ride out. Lastly what is the real difference between hybrid and pro shapes when trying to make a wave that's a bit farther out? Cheers, Nathan.

Hey Nathan! Send us an email at and we will be happy to answer all your questions!

Hi im learning to ride waves and im 4,8 and I weigh 71 pounds what board do you recommend for me to use. And what size?

Hi Luke,
For prompter responses please e-mail That being said, We would probably recommend an XXS Hybrid for the Recruit line of boards. This is actually the same size and shape as our SuperG Skimboard in size L. You may want to also look into the SuperG as it's geared towards riders of your age, skill level, and weight at $100 less! We hope this helps!

Would the recruit be able to go out and catch a wave? Because I've mastered the basics and am trying to get more advanced in skimming.

The Recruit and EX1 are geared towards riders who want to step up their game and start catching waves. It sounds like the perfect board for you. Any further questions should be directed towards

hey, i'm 5'2 and 110 pounds. What skimboard size should i get? i was thinking about extra large
I go skimboard since i was 9 years and i consider myself well but i want more speed so i thinked about the pro shape for my new skimboard,what do you think about it?

Hi Joshua,
Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! You would definitely get more speed on a wave from the pro shape. We think an Extra Large size would be MUCH too big for you however as it's going to be very hard for you to maneuver at 110lbs. We would point you more towards a size S or max MS. Please direct any further questions at for a prompter response.

Hey I'm a pretty experienced flat land rider that would like to try wave riding. I'm 5'9 and 160 pounds. Do you think a medium-large
5/8's Exile recruit would be a good board for me to skim on? If not, please tell me what you would suggest for me. I have been riding for quite awhile now and can perform various tricks. I'm a pretty fast runner and have decent board control.

Hi Randy,
We think a ML 5/8 Recuit would work great for you. For any further questions please direct them to

I'm going to be using this for ocean skim in Sant Cruz and for WAKESURFING

im 5'11"-6' 152 what size would you recommend

Hi Andrew,
We've noticed that riders using the board for wakesurfing tend to like the pro shape, as it's a little faster down the line. We would point you towards either a M or ML for your weight depending on your skill level. For prompter responses please direct any further questions to

I am 4'10 and 83 pounds what board size should I get? I was thinking an extra small

Hi Zack,
It kind of depends. An XS in either the hybrid or pro should last you until you're about 130-140lbs. If you think you're going to be growing a lot then it might be better to get a slightly bigger board. While it could feel a little big at first you'll have plenty of room to grow into it. If you are going to be 83lbs for a while, then XS it is. For any questions please e-mail

We hope that

I am 150 pounds and 5'10 what size board do you recommend?

Hi Jonathan,
It somewhat depends on your speed, skill level, and where you typically skim. Something along the lines of a Medium would probably work well for you though. To get fully dialed into a board, please e-mail We hope this helps!

I am looking to buy a skimboard for my trip to cuba and i am wondering if I am two big for it. I am 6.6 230 pounds. what size and board would be best for me

Hi Dirty,
Questions are best answered by e-mailing . That being said, we don't think you would be too big for a Recruit, but heavier riders do tend to benefit from the extra strength and stiffness from something like the S-glass or even better the Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy (if budget allows). If not something along the lines of an XL Hybrid shape in 3/4" should work great for you. We hope this helps!

I'm 5'10 170 lbs and not that fast of a runner, and just starting wave riding. I think large in the hybrid shape would be the best, or is medium-large better? As for thickness, I think 3/4, but I don't know. I live in Northern California. Is there any way to display the colors instead of just showing their names? Thanks

Hi Tony,
We apologize for the delayed reply. Questions regarding boards are best and quickly answered by e-mailing . That being said, it sounds like you're correct in that a large hybrid shape would be the best size for you. Given that you're not a quick runner just yet, the 3/4" thickness would probably be the best bet for you. As for the colors you can see approximate colors in our 2013 product catalog which can be found on the main page of our website. We hope this helps!

I live in Los Angeles I'm 5'3" 145 pounds looking for a board
I have been told Exiles were the ones to get.
However I'm not quite sure which would be best for SoCal conditions.
I was hoping for a brief review of each of these boards and also I would like
To know which size is suitable for me.thanx

Hi Anthony,
We certainly agree that Exiles are the boards to get. Which one depends greatly on your skill level, and weight. If you would like to e-mail us at we would be happy to get you dialed into a board that would be perfect for you.

Hi, i was wondering what the chub scout was like compared to the dude cruise. Im 145lbs and want a good floater that is on the wider side but not too long or heavy. I live east coast.

Hi Steven,
The Chub Scout and Dude! Cruise are similar in that you're going to get a good amount of speed and float out of both. The Chub Scout is going to be a little faster down the line, and have more drive. It will also be a little more versatile in the tech arena. The Dude! Cruise is going to sit comfortably in the pocket of the wave, and because of the rounder nose be able to "push" through any chop, or mushy sections in a wave. We hope this helps! Please direct any further questions to

What would you call mh ranking if I was to join a skim camp. A beginner or Advanced. I can turn into small waves and go 180 shov-its... I an also do 360's and more tricks like that. The way that I turn I to the wave is pretty simple but I can still do it. What would you call me?

Hi Grace! It's really tough to say on someone's skill level with out actually seeing them skim. I'm sure if you were to join the camp then they would be more than happy to help you determine whether you are a beginner, more advanced or somewhere in between. Join the camp and have fun skimming!

will you guys make a 41 inch long board?

Our SuperG size Small is a 40.13" x 17.88" board which would be the closest stock, and proven shape that we have. Of course we can do custom sizes if need be. We tend to recommend shapes that are already created however as they are time test to work. We hope this helps. If you have any further questions please direct them to

I am about 90 pounds and 56 inches must I get a small or a medium small

Hi Jayden,

You would probably want to go with a size Small for the maximum maneuverability. We rate the hybrid smalls for anyone 105 - 160lbs so it would also give you a little room to grow. The Medium Small may feel like too big of a board. Please direct any further questions to
