Blairacuda™

After giving our new RetroFish™ shape a solid go, Blair Conklin wanted to make some modifications he felt would make the board a little more high performance and better suited to his riding style. So he sat down with us and we created the Blairacuda... A board that's narrower than the Retrofish through the nose and middle section of the board for better maneuverability, and features a less drastic swallow tail that Blair says, 'Works almost like a fin". While the board performs well in straight waves and when doing front side turns, he believes a majority of the added benefit from the fish shape is felt when riding backside on either 1ft liners or 6ft wedges. One of the most difficult things to do on any finless board is to hold a line when you are going fast on your heel edge. He's a strong believer that this shape will help you with doing exactly that, while being extremely rippable and versatile for many different conditions. Not to mention this thing side slips like a bat out of hell. Click the link below and go get your Blairacuda on!

This is the board that changed it all. Many have tried to copy this board, all have failed. Unlike most skimboard companies, the most popular board we sell is also the most expensive board we sell. Why you ask? 'Cause it’s just that good. The perfect balance of weight, strength and stiffness combine to make the most popular high-end skimboard ever. Every trick in the book, with no corners cut make this the best value in skimboarding. We have customers still riding these boards from when our company was founded in 2002. You want the best? This is it. Come and get it!

Carbon Fiber is practically synonymous with top of the line in any industry. This fabric is highly coveted for its extreme strength and stiffness. Exile uses only Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber and Epoxy resin, making these boards stronger, stiffer and lighter than our fiberglass boards.

5/8" Thickness

5/8" thickness is our thinnest core we offer. The thinner core creates an incredibly responsive skimboard that excels in average to great wave conditions. The thinner core does come at the cost of a little buoyancy.

Hybrid Rocker

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!

Competition Weight™

For the rider who is wiling to sacrifice a touch of strength to have the lightest, most responsive board in the world.

Textured Finish

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 which others imitate. Some sanding required for proper traction adhesion.

Flat Deck

This deck option is the standard skimboard deck option seen on most skimboards.
