I am going to order a dude cruise soon, but first, what does competition weight mean? And if I choose to have a thicker board, what will that do?
We're stoked to hear that you will be getting a board from us soon. Our Competition Weight™ option for our double carbon fiber epoxy boards are our attempt to make the lightest boards on earth even lighter. This creates and incredibly fast, and responsive board. It does come at the cost of a tiny bit of strength however. Thicker boards float better at the cost of a tiny bit of maneuverability. We hope this helps! Please direct any and all further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm about 6'2 at between 210- 215 lbs. would the USS excelsior size be better for speed?
We think the USS Excelsior would definitely be the route to go for you size and weight. Please let us know if you have any other questions to email@example.com

I Skimmed the cruise ship a while back and never stopped thinking about it.now im Looking to buy the USS excelsior.im about 200 lbs, skim the west coast of fl. Need to reach far out sometimes and durability is a must. Will the 3/4 taper lose any strength from the full 3/4 ? And how will a texture and tapered USS excelsior be weight wise?
We apologize for the late reply. For prompter responses we definitely suggest e-mailing or calling us. Anyways, as to your questions...
The 3/4" tapered thickness will be just as strong as a full 3/4" (we actually taper all our 3/4" boards in the nose and tail, unless specifically asked not to) so I don't think that's something to be overly concerned about. If strength and durability is a must we would recommend going with our double carbon fiber epoxy boards as they tend to be the most durable and lightest overall. Boards can vary in weight since they are all hand made, but in general you're looking about about 4-4.5 lbs. We hope this helps!

its awesome even for a regular board

If I get glow green on the top then I cannot get bottom art?
For the high resolution bottom arts we recommend lighter colors for the top, as there tends to be white pigment that shows up along the rails. Lighter colors help to hide/mask that. If that's not an issue for you, then you are more than welcome to choose any color you like.

If I don't choose bottom art and two just regular colors, how long would it take to ship to the panhandle on the gulf coast of Florida?
Bottom arts don't affect the production time of boards at all. Normally, once we have the order it's about two weeks until the board is ready to ship, and then another 5 or so business days to ship to the Gulf Coast. Of course we have a number of retailers along the Gulf, and boards in stock and ready to go ourselves if you need a board more quickly. We hope this helps! Please direct any further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! Unfortunately we can not ship boards directly to Brazil due to high shipping and customs fees. We do however have a distributor in Rio, who has boards in stock and ready to go, or can help you in placing a custom order. His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please direct any further questions to him or us at email@example.com.

Hey exile, I live on East FL and we get nice waves maybe around 1 to sometimes 5 ft waves and we get strong east winds most the time, So i want the comp weight but I also want a bang from buck and a board that will not break, as it says "for the cost of strength" I'm worried it might wear and tear easier or might snap. PLEASE HELP!
Thank you for your interest in Exile Skimboards! Unfortunately, there always has to be a little give and take in the composites world. Our competition weight boards are the lightest boards we make, and probably in the world. This makes them incredibly responsive. It does come at the cost of a little strength. By that we mean that you couldn't expect them to last as long as a standard double carbon fiber epoxy, but they also aren't going to fall apart in your hands. We tend offer that they might not be the best board for someone who is incredibly hard on their board or skims windy conditions on a regular basis. But, if you want the sickest skimboard out there, and aren't too concerned if you don't have it forever, then it IS the board for you. We hope that helps! Please direct any further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org

I skim on water with not many waves and is mostly just water over sand. I want the dude cruise! But what thickness should I get if I don't have many waves? Or should I even get the dude cruise with barely many waves? Please give me advice
While the Dude! Cruise shape can be used in all conditions, the Dude! Cruise excels in smaller, weaker conditions like you described. Because it's wider throughout, there is more planing surface which helps the board keep speed. You would probably also enjoy the 3/4" tapered thickness for additional float. We hope this helps! Please direct any further questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!

LOOKS LIKE A NICE BOARD

I weigh 90 lbs. i skim on the west coast of florida. The waves are like waist high and break pretty close. Should i get 3/4"
Thickness is a lot of personal preference, and slightly depends on the types of waves you skim. We would say that in general 3/4" is pretty popular on the West Coast of Florida. However, at your weight and considering that you are getting a Dude! Cruise which is pretty wide you may want to consider the 5/8" for extra maneuverability. We hope this helps.

Hey, I've seen the Dude! Cruise Video and I'm dying to get one, I probably will once I get paid. It seems like the perfect board for me. I could not find the color catalog but I was wondering if you guys could replicate the Dude! Cruise in this youtube video.
http://youtu.be/kusb_OI-3Vk At 00:37 seconds is where the board I want to replicate begins to show. The top and bottom are different colors.
We think you will definitely enjoy the Dude! Cruise as we've had outstanding reviews from team riders and customers alike. The colors are glow green for the top, and Salmon for the bottom. You can find our color swatches in our 2012 catalog here: http://www.exileskimboards.com/CATALOGS/2012/exile2012.html

Hey im 5 foot tall and 90 lbs. Should I get the Grom Cruise size? Or the Yacht size? also should i get 3/4 thick? im not gonna be doing sharp turns n stuff.Where I skim the waves are pretty big and get barrels 40% of the time. Thanks!
Sorry for the late reply! I'm guessing you're going to be growing? I think the Grom Cruise would work for you, but the yacht might let you ride it for longer. If you feel like you're pretty quick, then the 5/8" should be fine in either since you want maximum maneuvering in the big waves and barrels.

How do i kno what thickness to get?
Hey Ty! Thickness comes down to a lot of personal preference honestly. Some people really prefer the 5/8" others the 3/4". With the 5/8" you get maximum maneuverability and responsiveness, but isn't quite as bouyant. 3/4" provides maximum float at the cost of a slight amount of maneuverability.
In general, it seems to us that a lot of better/faster riders (not all though) who skim good conditions on a regular basis tend to prefer the 5/8", where riders that skim softer conditions or waves further from shore tend to like the 3/4" a bit more.
