Skate the Surf
A smooth carving, super comfortable all-round freeride board that blends the line effortlessly between surf and strapless freestyle. Lively and responsive, with effortless acceleration and drive off the rail, the Cross was created to shred the waves in an ever-changing surf playground, ride real-world onshore conditions, flatwater and chop. It provides generous volume and width for a fun, forgiving ride with great upwind speed, and solid pop for freestyle tricks. Featuring grabbable rails on the top deck for easy air-handling and cushy contoured deck pads for enhanced control. It carves, it jumps, it pops. With or without straps, the Cross is your everyday go-to and one-board quiver. The ultimate all-rounder, instantly familiar, intuitive and easy to ride.
QUAD CONCAVE BOTTOM SHAPE
Absorbs chop for a smoother ride.
COMPACT SURF OUTLINE
With trimmed nose shape to reduce length and weight. Reduced nose and tail width adds control at the top end and creates a better wave-fit for easier, sharper turns.
Carbon and Innegra Futurelite wireframe forms a structural skeleton to support the laminates, maximising strength without losing flex, and allowing the board to load and release power on demand for more drive and responsiveness.
INCREASED TAIL CURVE AND SMOOTH PROGRESSIVE ROCKER
Gives instant speed and drive off the back foot for optimal upwind performance.
DIAMOND VECTORNET REINFORCEMENT
VectorNET carbon fibre diamond weave adds reinforcement to the rails, allowing flex through the mid-section of the board while maintaining the durability.
DUALSHOCK EVA INSERTS
With a stronger fibreglass layup under the main impact areas to add more durability and help reduce denting around your heel. Our solution to reduce over-engineering, keeping the boards lightweight while retaining required flex.
CONCAVE DECK CONTOURS
Cushy deck contours embed the rider, enhancing control when powered up and adding another dimension for contact in the air, giving you the confidence to go big with without straps and stick the landing.
WOVEN CARBON TAIL REINFORCEMENT
Spreads the load under the kickpad and gives impact resistance and torsional stiffness under the rear foot.
FCSII PREMIUM FIN BOX
The lightweight premium fin box allows for 9-degree rake. Compatible with both FCSI and click-in keyless FCSII fins for more speed & drive, quicker acceleration, and more response from your board. High-density foam reinforcements surrounding the FCSII fin box are shaped to match the curved template of the finbox for a clean bond and smoother load transfer into the board. Fin boxes, leash plug and foot strap inserts are structurally integrated, locking into the laminate with the Futurelite carbon innegra system to give extra reinforcement and flex-tuning.
NEW NO-SLIP DECK GRIP WITH TOE BUMP AND REAR WEDGE KICKER
New micro-corduroy textured one-piece EVA deckpad with intuitive front toe bump and rear wedge kick for maximum traction and control.
BEVELLED RELEASE RAILS
Allow the board to load and release from the water on demand. The bevelled rail profile reduces the suction effect of a round rail so water can shed off the rail and not wrap onto the deck. This allows the board to release off the water faster when loading and popping.
FOOT STRAP INSERT OPTIONS - RECOMMENDED WITH FREE SURF STRAPS
For when conditions get challenging, locking the rider into a comfortable stance for control in high winds or large waves. Experience instant-planing in full comfort with our lightweight memory foam surf straps, featuring our unique pre-tensioned and laminated seamless KnitFlex inners. The Free Straps allow you to customise your fit and stance, giving you freedom to move and shred in any conditions. Straps sold separately.
RECOMMENDED NORTH HEXCEL COREMAT FINS
Lightweight and durable fibreglass thruster surf fins for smooth control and traction. The custom fin base shape does not require FCSII infills. Fins are sold separately.
