The Elements Cruise design is one the most popular boards in the NSP range, and by design one of the most popular SUP’s in the world.
Paddling along, gently crossing a quiet body of water is the essence of the stand-up paddling experience. We’ve found that most SUP athletes covered their first meters on an NSP Cruise at some point. The Elements Cruise its forgiving shape and universal accessibility make it a worldwide favourite.
– Suitable for riders of all sizes and skill levels, the Cruise features a wider nose and rounded square tail. This is what makes the Cruise a stable platform with generous volume and easy turning.
– The double concave bottom shape delivers glide that makes this an incredibly stable and fun board on flat water, but also in small waves.
This board is recognized by the Sustainable Surf Foundation as a Level One Eco Board;
“An ECOBOARD is a high-performance sustainable board. It has the same technical performance attributes as any modern water-sport board, while having reduced environmental and toxic impacts.”
The Elements Cruise benefits from our most popular shape in a durable construction. The combination of fiberglass, durable gel coat skin, glass stringers, a wood layer under the standing area and a secure-cell E.P.S. core make this board durable, great value and with enough performance to enjoy it for years to come.
ROUND TAIL FOR THE 9’8″
As the smallest and most performance-oriented version of the E+ Cruise, the 9’8″ comes with a round tail. While the rounded square tail in the rest of the range gets rid of a lot of water very quickly, the rounder tail of the 9’8″ benefits from more control and precise turning angles.
