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.
52.15" x 20.25" 140-180 lbs.
What is the G.O.A.T Construction™? In the sports world G.O.A.T is a common acronym for 'Greatest of All Time', and we think there's a strong argument to be made that our skimboards built with this construction are just that, and here's why: These boards are built with 3 layers of Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber, Premium Epoxy Resin, and reinforced EXCLUSIVELY with S-Glass Fiberglass. This results in a board that's noticeably lighter, stiffer, and stronger than our industry leading Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy construction. Think of the G.O.A.T Construction™ as our Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy on steriods. We've been secretly testing this construction under the feet of our top professionals for well over a year now with fantastic results! And now this construction is available for you!!
Key Features of the G.O.A.T Construction™:
- 3 Full Sheets of Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber
- Premium Epoxy Resin
- Reinforced EXCLUSIVELY with multiple layers of S-Glass Fiberglass
- Ultra High Density PVC Foam Core
- Double Wrapped Rails
- Every Trick in the Book + Some
- Size, Shape, and Thickness Options for ANY Size Rider in ANY Type of Conditions
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.
The convex option is slightly higher in the middle of the board and tapers in all directions towards the rails. This gives the board a little buoyancy comparable to 3/4” Tapered, but comparable responsiveness to a 5/8”.
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.
