Exile offers 3 no cost weight options for our Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy Line of boards. Choose your preferred weight here!

Add Deck Channels as seen on Sam Stinnett's 2016 Pro Model. These channels act as a parabolic rail, increasing the stiffness of the board. They also provide a functional groove for your hand when grabbing the rail of the board.

This option allows for a thinner middle of the board than along the rails to give the board a more 'skatey' feel. It's brand new and highly endorsed by team rider Tim Fulton.

Choose the thickness of your new skimboard.

Choose your preferred color for the top of your skimboard.

Choose the bottom color for your board (if you are going to choose hi-res bottom art, choose "I Want Bottom Art", if you are going to choose resin bottom art, choose "I Want Resin Bottom Art" and put the three colors you want in the special request box)

IF you would like bottom art on your skimboard, choose it here!

High Resolution bottom arts add a little extra weight as well as extra durability to the bottom of the board.

Please choose up to 3 colors for the resin bottom art here, and don't forget to leave us a comment in the special request if you have a particular design in mind...Otherwise we will get wild with it!
Choose which style logo you want on your skimboard.

Choose where you want the logo to be placed on the board.

NT™ Finish (new textured finish) has the strength and durability of our classic textured finishe, with great cosmetics for improved looks and no compromise in strength. Less prep need for proper traction adhesion

Textured Finish is Exile's industry leading finish for the past 10 years.

Gloss finishes look pretty and traction sticks to it easily. 

Hybrid rocker comes standard but you may substitute Domke rocker at no additional charge if you like.  Domke rocker is the same rocker profile as the hybrid rocker but with less of it.  This makes the board faster but less manueverable.  Sam rock is the same rocker profile as the hybrid rocker but with more of it. This makes the board more manueverable, especially in larger conditions, but slightly slower. The Sam and Domke rockers are recommended to experienced riders who want to maximize speed or performance.

Hey, I'm 5' 4" 100 pounds I live in Alabama on the gulf and I already have a pro model but I would like a board that I could ride smaller waves and liners. What board and size do u recommend?

RESPONSE: Hey Robbie, Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards. For more prompter responses to questions, please email If you already have a pro model, then I would consider checking out our Dude Cruise line of boards. The Dude Cruise is perfect for small liners and waves, but works well in any conditions. The board is wider and shorter then the average skimboard. This helps a lot with float and being quite stable when riding waves. Being that the board is wider, this also helps with popping and landing tricks as well. The Dude Cruise comes in three sizes: The Grom Cruise, The Yacht, The Cruise Ship, The USS Excelsior. If you weigh in at 100 lbs. then I would go with The Grom Cruise. It holds up to 135 lbs. If you want to see what the actual shape, check out our website If you have any more questions please feel free to email us at or give us a call at (949)-492-0284.

I'm fine to pay the money for the carbon fiber but is it really that much better then s-glass?? Is it really worth the extra $45??

RESPONSE: Our double carbon fiber epoxy skimboards are widely regarded as the best skimboards money can buy, which is a reason why most top skimboarders choose to ride these boards. Double Carbon Fiber boards are stronger and stiffer than the S-glass. If you skim often and want the best then it's definitely worth the extra money. Our S-glass boards are still amazing boards.

I'm thinking of getting this board with the dura weight but I was wondering how it'll effect the float and speed of the board

Hi Jack, Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! For more prompter responses to questions, please email Our DuraWeight™ should not effect the overall float on the board. The DuraWeight™ however does cut down a little bit on the responsiveness of turning and maneuvering the board. For any further questions,please email

I have a quick question about the Domke and Sam Rockers, I usually am skim boarding in the Outer Banks in North Carolina which rocker would be better considering I am used to riding a pro model. please get back to me as soon as possible

Hi Sam P,
For prompt question answering please direct questions to
That's a tricky questions as any of our rockers would work fine for the conditions in the Outer Banks. It's more of what you want to get out of the board. The Domke Rocker is flatter, and therefore faster when planing out to waves. It is also slightly less maneuverable. The Sam Rocker has more rocker, and therefore turns on a dime, especially in bigger conditions. It is also slightly slower. The hybrid rocker is the median between the two.

I am going to order a dude cruise soon, but first, what does competition weight mean? And if I choose to have a thicker board, what will that do?
Thanks, -J.Paul

Hi J.Paul,
We're stoked to hear that you will be getting a board from us soon. Our Competition Weight™ option for our double carbon fiber epoxy boards are our attempt to make the lightest boards on earth even lighter. This creates and incredibly fast, and responsive board. It does come at the cost of a tiny bit of strength however. Thicker boards float better at the cost of a tiny bit of maneuverability. We hope this helps! Please direct any and all further questions to

I'm about 6'2 at between 210- 215 lbs. would the USS excelsior size be better for speed?

We think the USS Excelsior would definitely be the route to go for you size and weight. Please let us know if you have any other questions to

I Skimmed the cruise ship a while back and never stopped thinking about im Looking to buy the USS about 200 lbs, skim the west coast of fl. Need to reach far out sometimes and durability is a must. Will the 3/4 taper lose any strength from the full 3/4 ? And how will a texture and tapered USS excelsior be weight wise?

Hey Matt,
We apologize for the late reply. For prompter responses we definitely suggest e-mailing or calling us. Anyways, as to your questions...
The 3/4" tapered thickness will be just as strong as a full 3/4" (we actually taper all our 3/4" boards in the nose and tail, unless specifically asked not to) so I don't think that's something to be overly concerned about. If strength and durability is a must we would recommend going with our double carbon fiber epoxy boards as they tend to be the most durable and lightest overall. Boards can vary in weight since they are all hand made, but in general you're looking about about 4-4.5 lbs. We hope this helps!

its awesome even for a regular board

If I get glow green on the top then I cannot get bottom art?

For the high resolution bottom arts we recommend lighter colors for the top, as there tends to be white pigment that shows up along the rails. Lighter colors help to hide/mask that. If that's not an issue for you, then you are more than welcome to choose any color you like.

If I don't choose bottom art and two just regular colors, how long would it take to ship to the panhandle on the gulf coast of Florida?

Hi Noah,

Bottom arts don't affect the production time of boards at all. Normally, once we have the order it's about two weeks until the board is ready to ship, and then another 5 or so business days to ship to the Gulf Coast. Of course we have a number of retailers along the Gulf, and boards in stock and ready to go ourselves if you need a board more quickly. We hope this helps! Please direct any further questions to

Hey exile, I live on East FL and we get nice waves maybe around 1 to sometimes 5 ft waves and we get strong east winds most the time, So i want the comp weight but I also want a bang from buck and a board that will not break, as it says "for the cost of strength" I'm worried it might wear and tear easier or might snap. PLEASE HELP!

Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! Unfortunately, there always has to be a little give and take in the composites world. Our competition weight boards are the lightest boards we make, and probably in the world. This makes them incredibly responsive. It does come at the cost of a little strength. By that we mean that you couldn't expect them to last as long as a standard double carbon fiber epoxy, but they also aren't going to fall apart in your hands. We tend offer that they might not be the best board for someone who is incredibly hard on their board or skims windy conditions on a regular basis. But, if you want the sickest skimboard out there, and aren't too concerned if you don't have it forever, then it IS the board for you. We hope that helps! Please direct any further questions to

I skim on water with not many waves and is mostly just water over sand. I want the dude cruise! But what thickness should I get if I don't have many waves? Or should I even get the dude cruise with barely many waves? Please give me advice

While the Dude! Cruise shape can be used in all conditions, the Dude! Cruise excels in smaller, weaker conditions like you described. Because it's wider throughout, there is more planing surface which helps the board keep speed. You would probably also enjoy the 3/4" tapered thickness for additional float. We hope this helps! Please direct any further questions to Thanks!

I weigh 90 lbs. i skim on the west coast of florida. The waves are like waist high and break pretty close. Should i get 3/4"
or 5/8"?

Thickness is a lot of personal preference, and slightly depends on the types of waves you skim. We would say that in general 3/4" is pretty popular on the West Coast of Florida. However, at your weight and considering that you are getting a Dude! Cruise which is pretty wide you may want to consider the 5/8" for extra maneuverability. We hope this helps.

Hey, I've seen the Dude! Cruise Video and I'm dying to get one, I probably will once I get paid. It seems like the perfect board for me. I could not find the color catalog but I was wondering if you guys could replicate the Dude! Cruise in this youtube video. At 00:37 seconds is where the board I want to replicate begins to show. The top and bottom are different colors.

We think you will definitely enjoy the Dude! Cruise as we've had outstanding reviews from team riders and customers alike. The colors are glow green for the top, and Salmon for the bottom. You can find our color swatches in our 2012 catalog here:
