    Board Construction

    Ultra-Lite Technology

    Construction Image

    Cruiser SUP Ultra-Lite boards offers a class leading, user friendly "tough", high quality bamboo construction.

    Tough: In addition to three layers of 4oz. fiberglass on top and 4oz/6oz layers on bottom, (5 layers of fiberglass wrapping the rails), there is full-length .5mm real bamboo veneer reinforcement (stronger than fiberglass) sandwiched between the first and second fiberglass layers on top and bottom. Carbon and PVC foam reinforcement in the standing area to prevent heel dents. Kevlar cloth is added to the rails, nose and tail for extra ding resistance.

    The quality CNC shaped 14kg EPS core is strong to prevent heel dents. This combination is molded for extra strength, impact resistance and lighter weight. The rails are painted in matte finish for improved performance and custom look. The result is a strong and durable premium construction.

    TOP: Soft & Strong

    • 4 oz fiberglass
    • Real bamboo - Full Length
    • 4 oz fiberglass
    • 4 oz fiberglass
    • Carbon reinforcement in standing area
    • Premium "crocodile" non-slip texture EVA deck pad

    Wonderful experience dealing with the team at Paddleboard Direct

    Great communication with the team, both while I was choosing the boards and during the shipping process. The boards arrived with all the correct pieces I had ordered. The boards are really beautiful, and are fast and track well in the water. I am thrilled with the quality, and very happy to have been able to buy two of them on sale. Will recommend them wholeheartedly.

    Great/Stable Board

    Purchased the 12'6" board and extremely happy with the board and overall purchase process. The board is great for stable water and recently used in the ocean during a recent vacation. Very stable and the finish is extremely nice. Ordered two of the boards and one was delivered with some damage due to the shipping company. Glenn and his team immediately worked to send another board and it arrived in an extremely timely manner. Very happy with the purchase and would definitely purchase another board from Paddleboard Direct


    great Paddleboard Directboard

    great board. very happy with a fast and safe delivery.


    Great board

    Board lived up to its advertisement. Board tracks well and is very stable in rough and confused water.


    Buying Experience

    Although it's an Internet purchase, it's quite clear that somebody is monitoring the other end of the " line" at Paddleboard Direct. My board was backordered, but rather than just charge my credit card in caveat emptor fashion and make me chase delivery dates, the Paddleboard Direct staff stayed in touch as to delivery ETA and did not charge me until they had a firm window and my approval to process. The box came off the truck looking like it had been through a war. Thankfully, I had been provided very specific acceptance instructions - twice. The triple packaging protected it from major damage but it did get dinged. Paddleboard Direct offered to replace or offer repair instructions and compensation. I accepted the latter and the process thus far has been quick and painless. Kudos to Paddleboard Direct for not letting the Internet automation element get in the way of top notch customer service BEST buying experience in years.!
