THE CRUISE SHIP
USS EXCELSIOR

95-160 lbs
140-200 lbs
199lbs & Up

21.00" x 50.30"
21.40" x 50.50"
22.00" x 52.50"

Hi darren,
Exile is a small, hands on company that makes one of the best skimboards on the market. I have tried many, and their's are my favorite. One of the original kite skimmers, Joey Pasqualli is sponsored by them as well. I inquired about the 'Dude Cruise' when it first came out because it is so COOL looking! Talked with Hank Snap at Exile and decided , that with my feather weight (120lbs) and choppy conditions where I ride, that the Cruise was not a good option for me. If you are riding in moderate wind area's then it might be awesome for you! I ride the Pro shape in S glass. Since I ride in winds from 20-40mph, I need the narrower outline and pin tail to be able to go from rail to rail. You can't go wrong with an Exile board!
