Cruising on a quiet body of water is an essential part of the stand-up paddling experience, and most SUP athletes covered their first meters on an NSP Cruise at some point.
The NSP Cruise is the most popular shape in the SUP range and currently one of the most popular boards in the world by a mile. Built in the aesthetically pleasing CocoFlax technology, the Cruise is as easy on the eye as it is on the water. CocoFlax construction was awarded as “Product of the Year” at the 2019 Paddle Expo, a testament to the green character of the CocoFlax Cruise.
Who is it for?
Suitable for riders of all sizes and skill levels, its design features a wider nose and rounded square tail, which creates a stable platform with for easy turns. The bottom of the Cruise has a double concave with a single fin, helping gliding characteristics, making the Cruise a board that works both on flatwater and in small waves.
The eco-friendly construction makes for a visually unique board with an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio. Your CocoFlax Cruise is light to carry, easy to manoeuvre and a breeze to paddle. Its responsive flex and strength instil confidence, inviting you to push the envelope and progress while you play.
Single fin setup
Supplied with our CocoMat 8″ fin, the Cruise has that classic setup, ideal for long and drawn out power turns. For flat water paddling, a single fin will outperform a multi-fin setup as well.
While the smallest CocoFlax Cruise (9’8) has a rounded tail (pictured in the overview) which helps manoeuvrability, the other sizes benefit from a squashed tail for a slightly quicker release.
After testing the different shapes, we found that the round tail is more fun on the smaller 9’8 while it doesn’t scale up to the 10’2 upwards. Adding the squashed tail simply works better for the 10+ shapes.
