Cruiser DURA-LITE 10'6"

Staff Favorite - Now weighs 26 pounds! The fun, high performance, easy to use CRUISER DURA-LITE (Epoxy Composite/ACE-TEC/ASA) 10'6' is designed for families and beginners 75 to 200 pounds (expert riders up to 250 pounds in surf).

It uses the same overall concept as the larger and well proven 11'6'': big, 185 liter evenly spread volume, 31.5" width with flat deck for excellent stability. Finely balanced rocker and curved outline (with 3 fins) to make it highly maneuverable in small to medium surf. Easy to handle on the flat, light in weight and feel, it's a highly versatile and super fun SUP - suitable for a very wide range of conditions.

Cruiser Dura-Lite 11'6"

Based on the best selling CRUISER Dura-Max 11'4" shape, the new high performance 2013 CRUISER Dura-Lite 11'6" (Durable Epoxy Composite core & impact resistant ASA skin) is lighter, stiffer and more performance oriented. With 220 liters volume displacement, the result is more stability, bouyancy and ease of use for 200 - 300 pound beginner to advanced riders. Couple with the Dura-Lite 10'6", CRUISER Dura-Max 11'4" or 10'4" for the perfect Family and Friends combo!

Shaped for heavier weight riders, the new CRUISER SUP Dura-Lite (Epoxy Composite/ACE-TEC/ASA) 11'6" has substantial volume giving great lateral stability. And with the volume evenly spread along the length, its finely balanced rocker and longboard-style outline, it's a board that's easy to handle on the flat stuff but is still very maneuverable in waves. That, combined with its excellent stiffness and light weight, make this the SUP suited to the widest range of conditions of any board on the market.

A high-performance board for beginners up to 260lbs (300lbs for advanced riders) looking to explore both flat water cruising and small wave surfing. Dura-Lite construction makes these boards stiff, light and extremely durable (30% more durable than a standard epoxy board). Shaped by Peter Hosking of Australia and tested by surfing hall of fame legend Peter Pan. Premium deck pad, carry handle and FCS 10" Dolphin center fin included.


Stiffer and much more durable than Asian built, epoxy budget brands. CRUISER SUP ECO Dura-Lite (Epoxy Composite / ASA skin) ding/scratch resistant construction produces a board that is approximately 30% more durable and stiffer than epoxy SUP boards. Dura-Lite thermoformed construction, fine tuned for performance Stand-Up Paddling. This unique technology produces lightweight, high-performance with proven durability. A premium board without the premium price.

Our EPS core (DURA-LITE) are molded, closed cell, and watertight. The molded core is the key because each cell is intact with its own impermeable skin.

ECO Dura-Lite is as durable as the DURA-MAX but it is Lighter, Stiffer and High Performance.

The last 6 years have seen many changes in surfboard manufacturing.

No longer is a regular polyester foam and fibreglass regarded as the only way to make a board. Nowadays surfers are able to enjoy a much wider variety of new and innovative methods of surfboard construction that provide much improved durability without extra weight. Cruiser has been at the forefront of epoxy technology for more than 10 years, longer than any other surfboard manufacturer and was the first to develop a full range of epoxy composite surfboards.

CRUISER ECO Dura-Lite (Epoxy Composite/ASA) 10'6') construction technique produces a board that is approximately 30% more durable while being almost identical with regard to stiffness and weight when compared to a similar polyester constructed surfboard. To accommodate the needs of more advanced surfers, CRUISER ECO Dura-Lite (Epoxy Composite/ASA) 10'6' boards provide shapes that not only suit the novice to intermediate surfer, but also experienced riders who know how to ride a surfboard.

The construction process forms the top and bottom ASA surfaces of the board over aluminium molds. These formed surfaces are then pressed over a pre-shaped, lightweight EPS foam core, (the lightest surfboard foam available) which is covered in 6-oz fibre glass cloth and epoxy resin to give the board strength.


How is Cruiser ECO Dura-Lite production process eco-friendly?

  1. No pollution: No gas emissions, no solvents and closed circuit cooling of our molds means our employees, and everyone else, don't have to worry about what comes out of our ventilation system.
  2. Low Energy Consumption: short production cycles means less electricity is used.
  3. Zero waste production: Wherever possible excess material is grinded down and recycled back into the production process. Our steel molds ensure that only the necessary amount of material is used for each board.
  4. Extended product life-span: our boards are built to last, meaning they don't end up broken and taking up space in a landfill somewhere.

ECO Dura-Lite construction (Exclusive to CRUISER SUP): Wrap a custom molded EPS core/fiberglass/epoxy board in a thin yet extremely durable layer of theromoformed ASA* polymer and what do you get? A stiff, lightweight board that is 30% more durable than a standard epoxy board. Tried and true, we've been making our high-end boards like this for exceptional performance and durability for over 30 years.

REVIEWS:

"I have paddled lots of boards. If we sell it, I have used it (and more than likely if we don't sell it, I have paddled it as well).

Most of my paddling is done from a rocky beach, and I am not known for gentleness when it comes to handling boards. One of the biggest gaps in SUP boards until now, has been a board that is both high performance and durable. Usually to get toughness, you have to sacrifice performance and vice versa. However, the Cruiser ECO Dura-Lite series fills that gap with authority.

While screwing the three FCS fins to the ECO Dura-Lite 10'6" (all with the same tool), I promptly dropped my full water bottle on the nose - and watched it bounce off without even a mark on the board!. I knew we had a serious construction, that needed to be put through it's paces.

First impression of the board is the ultra plush deck pad (same as Cruiser Classic and Oxbow Cruisers) and super stable feel for a relatively short board (I am 170lbs). With a quick stroke or two, it is gliding quickly and smoothly, Over chop the ECO Dura-Lite 10'6" doesn't have the trademark "flex" feeling that most Asian constructions have. Stiffness is very good - much stiffer than Asian epoxy boards. Seems really solid. Keen to try the 11'6 as well. Excellent upgrade in performance from the ECO Dura-M. Also a very good quality, much cheaper option than Naish AST, Surftech, Starboard, French, etc.

The ECO Dura-Lite 10'6" shape seems really good: the tracking is super straight for a 10'6" (surprised at 5 or 6 strokes per side). After an hour session on flat to choppy water, I have the ECO COMP 10'6" dialed in and averaging 4-6 strokes per side. This is way higher than I was expecting out of a 10'6. Stability is really high in the middle of the board due to the extra width in the waist. I don't have a wave session on the 10'6 yet - but gliding around wind driven swell I could feel it release down the faces and respond to foot pressure nicely (instead of just getting overwashed from behind).

At the end of the session, I whapped the ECO Dura-Lite off a rock getting out of the water, without even a scratch to the ECO Dura-Lite outer skin.My overall impression of the ECO Dura-Lite is more stoked.

Great performance, a super tough construction (time tested for over 20 years) that comes with an unheard of one year warranty in the board sport industry. Anyone looking for unbeatable value (durability, performance and great $999 price) shouldn't overlook the CRUISER ECO Dura-Lite Series."

We love our 2 boards!
Reviewer: Rebecca from NYC  
I bought paddleboards from you last week.  We picked them up last Friday and everything went perfectly.  We love the Boards.  

We had them on flat water last weekend and barring storms this weekend, hope to have them on the ocean tomorrow.  They were a perfect choice.  Thank you for the advice.

Crusier Eco Dura-Lite 10'6
Reviewer: Steve from North Carolina  
I purchased 2 of this exact board a few months ago. My wife and I have been extremely happy with the performance of these boards. We have been mostly in flat water, (intracoastal waterway, channels and a couple of lakes). I am a surfer so I have taken on the surf and have been happy with the ride. These boards are durable, light and extremely stable. Just for fun I plan to participate in the 2013 Key West Paddleboard Classic using this board. Good Job!

Cruiser Dura-Lite Stand Up Paddle Board
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Mentor, Ohio  
My husband and I purchased these boards last summer.  They are incredible.  We used them on Lake Erie and the conditions were anywhere from completely calm water to 1-2 foot waves.  They handled really well  and were very stable.  I would recommend this board for anyone.
