Cruiser HIT

The Cruiser HIT is ideal for paddlers wanting an all-around, family-friendly durable paddleboard. We used the new and ultra-durable High-Impact Technology (H.I.T.) to create a new recreational shape. What we built is a more durable and easy-to-use paddleboard for heavy-duty use.

WS stands for Windsurfing

The 11’6” WS doesn’t just have a mast insert, it comes with a full-sized mast rail, so you can tune your rig. And unlike the regular 11’6”, the WS version features a daggerboard and a hybrid fin for effortless upwind navigation.


  • All four Cruisers (9’8″, 10’2″, 11’2″ and 11’6″) are designed with stability, glide and easy turning in mind.
  • 9’8″ and 10’2″ come with a single 8″ nylon dolphin fin, the 11’2″ and 11’6″ have a 9″ version, the WS 11’6″ has a 9″ hybrid fin.
  • Volume is evenly distributed through the standing area while the wide round nose and tail really help with a stable standing position.
  • The tail section of the Cruiser SUPs benefits from a concave Vee-bottom that makes turning even easier.
  • A standing guide on the deckpad helps first-timers find their ideal standing position.

Additional Information

Windsurf the Cruiser HIT

All Cruiser HIT sizes feature an insert for a single mast base position, but the WS version comes with an additional full-size mast track, a daggerboard and a 9″ Hybrid fin. Riders who have a sail quiver or venues with a collection of sails can now take full advantage of their Cruiser HIT, whether it’s windy or the conditions are perfect for paddling.

Proven Shape

To develop the Cruiser HIT, we worked on a proven shape from the successful Elements range and improved the outline, rail and bottom shapes for a better glide over flat water. This directly affects the allround paddling performance for everyday use, but with some key design characteristics, accomplished paddlers will also appreciate taking this Cruiser HIT into small and medium- waves.

Designed for heavy use:

We know some paddlers require boards that are more durable, safer and bring additional key features to the table; that is why we created the Cruiser HIT. The enlarged hole on the nose is a smart design feature that allows owners to quickly use a single steel cable to secure all boards at the end of the day.

The full EVA deck allows beginners to safely explore the balance of the board, plus it is comfortable on the knees for those who are not quite ready yet to stand up.

A standing guide, bungee chords to secure personal floatation devices and additional reinforcements of the rails protect HIT boards from paddle impact and general knocks.

If you have windy conditions, consider the WS version of the Cruiser HIT as the daggerboard and full-sized mast track make for a better windsurfer than the regular Cruiser; instead of the M8 mast screw inserts, it features a mast rail as well.

Cruiser HIT Construction

Construction of the Cruiser HIT

HIT board construction uses eco-friendly SecureCell EPS cores that get fully wrapped in military-grade fiberglass. Once laminated with epoxy resin, the board is capped with extremely tough “bullet skin” (styrene-acrylonitrile), increasing longevity and impact resistance.

Additional reinforcement of the rail bands protects HIT boards from paddle impact and general knocks. HIT construction also features a deck with premium thermoformed EVA over the entire length of the board. Delivering the ultimate in comfort and a ledge handle for easy carrying.
