Our Hybrid Shape is our most popular and best-selling shape. The wider nose and shorter overall length of these boards is more forgiving, making them the best choice for beginner and intermediate riders, as well as advanced riders who prefer the responsiveness and easy-to-use style of this shape. Excellent for ANY skim conditions. This is the preferred shape of World Champions Austin Keen and Blair Conklin as well as other elite Exile team riders.
52.50" x 20.60" 160 - 205 lbs.
The EX1 is the most high performance skimboard available at it's price on the market. It comes with extra reinforcement built in to sustain the toughest conditions. This board is the perfect step up for riders looking to start riding waves and progressing in the sport. Boards created with EX1 construction are available in 5 of our World Championship-winning Hybrid shape sizes. If you want more shape, size, and thickness options, please choose another construction option.
Key Features of the EX1:
- Superior E-Glass Reinforcement
- Premium Polyester Resin
- PVC Foam Core
- Textured or Showroom Gloss Finish
3/4" Tapered to 5/8" Thickness
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.
The Hybrid Rocker is what we put on 90% of the boards we produce, and is the most versatile skimboard rocker for skimming anything from the Gulf Coast of Florida to Cabo. It clocks in roughly at 2.25" in the nose and about .125" in the tail with a fairly good size flat spot in the middle of the board. This allows the board to transition from sand to water easily, be super fast, and turn on a dime. If you aren't sure, this would be our pick!
