Cruiser Nalu All-Wave Platinum Edition!
With so many great boards out there trying to decide which board is right for you can be overwhelming. There are boards with bigger rockers, boards with displacement noses, some boards have better tracking than others...the list goes on. Not to fear! You're reading this because we have the information you're looking for! Over the next few weeks we'll be letting you know all about the different Cruiser Stand-Up Paddleboards.
Cruiser Nalu All-Wave Platinum Edition. This board is designed to be used in surf of all shapes and sizes! Now that doesn't mean you should be taking it out in 10 foot high Hawaiian surf. This board is going to perform at its best in what we like to refer to as "real world conditions" (a.k.a. small to medium surf!) Although most SUPs are relatively beginner friendly, this particular board is geared towards the intermediate or advanced rider who really wants to get out in the surf.

Definition Alert!This particular board has ample nose to tail rocker to make for cleaner turns when surfing and helps prevent you from pearling the nose on a wave face! The beauty of this board is that it does not have continuous rocker (the middle of the board is flat). This gives it fast acceleration and good glide, without sacrificing surf capabilities.
Ultra-Lite Closed Cell EPS Core: A closed cell core is water-tight in and of itself. This means that if you're board were to be punctured (let's hope that never happens!) then it would NOT take on water! The closed cell core is just one more layer of protection for your board to keep it from suffering any irreparable damage.
Rocker: The term rocker refers to the curvature of the board from nose to tail. The greater the rocker, the easier it is to turn in surf.
Pearling: When the nose of the board digs into the wave. Pearling is more common with boards that don't have enough rocker!

Tips and TricksFin placement makes a big difference!
- For cruising move the fin towards the rear of the fin box
