THIS BOARD is a factory blem. The Logo of this board has a slight cosmetic flaw, and isn't quite as crisp as it should be. As with all our "factory blems" this board is as structurally sound as any other Exile on the market.
MANUFACTURED ONLY from the highest quality fabrics, vinyl ester resin, and PVC core, our RECRUIT® skimboards are well tested by the best skimboarders in the world, in the heaviest conditions on earth. Here are some of the features of this board.
E-GLASS is the most common fiber reinforcement used in the composites world. It is popular because it offers very good performance for how much it costs. It is not as strong or stiff as the higher priced Sglass and Carbon, but is still a high quality material. Our Eglass boards are constructed exactly like the high end Sglass and Carbon but with this more inexpensive material. They are also glassed a little heavier to compensate for some of the loss of strength and stiffness.
HYBRID SHAPE - Our best selling shape is well suited for riders at any skill level. Hybrids are a little shorter than most boards with a slightly blunted nose. This results in a board that sits comfortably in the pocket and makes it easy to wrap the wave. The increased nose area also makes it possible to squeeze additional speed out of the board by pumping hard and leaning forward.
3/4" THICKNESS - 3/4" is the thicker of the two options that Exile offers. The additional thickness makes the board glide further and float on top of the water more than the 5/8" boards. They also provide a little extra stiffness for the Recruits!
THE GLOSS FINISH - provides an unmatched show room finish like you've never seen. Slightly heavier than the functional performance finish. You may apply pads directly onto the surface of these boards as well!
