Exile flipped the skimboarding world on it's head when we introduced the Dude! Cruise™ shape. Quite possibly one of the easiest and most fun boards to ride in our line up, the Dude! Cruise is shorter and wider than your normal skimboard. The wide surface area under your front foot creates a ton of speed and float, while the wing and swallow-tail keep it highly maneuverable. This shape planes extremely well and locks in down the line, making it a great choice for smaller, further out, or weaker conditions (although our team has proven there's very little it can't and handle). It might be impossible to ride the Dude! Cruise without a smile on your face. When in doubt, Dude! Cruise.

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!
Our industry leading standard build
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.
This deck option is the standard skimboard deck option seen on most skimboards.
