How tough is the Cruiser Eco Comp?

While driving to work recently, a trusty set of tie down straps decided to snap - With only a somewhat ominous "whoosh" warning sound.

I had a second to ponder "what goes whoosh" before I could see the Cruiser ECO COMP 11'6" do a back flip off the roof rack and cart wheel down the road in my rear view mirror.I think it did at least 2-3 full nose over tail barrel rolls. Thankfully it didn't hit any cars behind me. I jammed on brakes and did U turn, fearing the worst. A totally destroyed board!

I had been going about 45 mph at the time, and the pictures tell the story - just a bit of road rash on the extremely durable ASA outer skin. Any other epoxy board would have been totalled, but I paddled the 11'6" ECO COMP that night!

Please note the Cruiser ECO COMP 5 year warranty against manufacturers defects does not cover boards flying off the roof of your vehicle!
