This is the board that changed it all for our ocean skimboard line. 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. We don't cut corners. We don't skimp on materials or labor. We do everything possible to build the best performing skim style wake surf in the world, and that's why people love it. 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. We use Epoxy Resin specifically with our Double Carbon Fiber boards because Epoxy resin is formulated specifically to work with carbon fiber. Polyester Resin is used by other brands because it's more economical, but it does not properly bond with Carbon Fiber. Truly the best skim style wake surf money can buy and the trusted construction of all our top Professional riders.
Key Features of Double Carbon Fiber Epoxy:
• A Full Sheet of Aerospace Grade Carbon Fiber on the top and bottom
• Premium Epoxy Resin
• S-Glass Reinforced Bottom
• Reinforced with multiple layers of fiberglass
• High Density PVC Foam Core
• Double Wrapped Rails
• Every Trick in the Book
*Because Carbon Fiber is inherently black in nature and due to our construction process, there is a good chance you will see some black showing along the rails of the board and perhaps some areas on the deck.
The Hornet™ Shape is new to our line up for 2018. It is the culmination of over a year of R&D with our elite team of riders to take our most popular Hybrid Shape and make it THAT much better. We've taken the Hybrid Shape and drawn in the tail profile to make it narrower and slightly more pointed. This creates a shape that performs much like the Hybrid, BUT is ultra responsive under the lip and has extra 'hold' on the face of larger, steeper waves. Ideal for average to above average conditions. This shape will not disappoint!
52.25" x 20.40" 150 - 195 lbs.
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 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.
