The Carbonology Sport Cruze is an entry level surf ski aimed at the beginner, recreational and fun segment of the paddling market. It features exceptional stability and comfort as well as some integrated features to reduce the barrier of entry into surf ski paddling.
The handles are rigid plasticised handles at the nose and tail and two soft-cover handles at the knees and at the exact midpoint of the boat weight-wise, make it a breeze to carry single-handedly.
On the water it is extremely stable and it has just enough rocker to make it responsive under pedal steering, while the wider, high volume deck, front and back, keeps you on top of the water when punching out through surf. The large wetted surface area behind the seatwell make picking up swell and runs easy, but cleverly the design includes a sharp V instead of a flat spoon tail shape. This really helps the boat track in surf swells and on runs.
The bottom line is that this is a fantastic recreational ski and an ideal ski to get started in as well as being a versatile ski that has serious potential as a multisport craft, especially for those who are not hot paddlers and battle when conditions (wind and swell) are against them.
