Carbonology Sport Cruze Surf Ski

$2,995.00

Giving up traditional sea kayaking, I picked up this ski recently with the goal of finding a lightweight and fast stable sit on top kayak or surf ski with storage for trips. The Carbonology Sport Cruze Surf Ski covers all the goals I was looking for.

I ordered the ski with an option for the large stern storage area with a watertight hatch for day trips and touring. The ski is super light for carrying and car-topping, is very stable yet surfs like a dream on downwind runs and coastal surf. – Rob C

If you’re looking for an easy win in that prestigious flat water race, this may not be the best choice. But to those who want to race, train, tour, head out into the open ocean and be prepared for crossover conditions: the Carbonology Sport Cruze is your surf ski.

The Carbonology Sport Cruze Surf Ski is an entry level surf ski aimed at the beginner but is super fun for downwinding, surf and touring.

This ski is Carbonology’s most popular model, filling a niche similar to the Epic V8, and is the most stable boat in the Carbonology Sport lineup at 22″ wide.

This is a great surf ski for anyone who wants a ski that will cross over into rough ocean conditions. It’s not the fastest they have, it’s the most diverse. That explains it’s popularity.

Carbonology also offers the ski in “Hybrid Carbon/Glass Epoxy Vacuum” composite layup, which balances weight and value.

Optional Storage Hatch

The Carbonology Sport Cruze Surf Ski has an option to add a large storage area in the stern with a rubber watertight hatch.  This allows the ski be an great option for long day trips and multi day tours.  This model also has a 5″ wide screw-on ‘day hatch’ accessible from the cockpit for small items.

Carbonology surf skis are manufactured in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and are renowned for their maneuverability, light weight and elegant high-tech fittings. They produce a number of models to suit your weight and paddling ability.

If you’re looking for an easy win in that prestigious flat water race, this may not be the best choice. But to those who want to race, train, tour, head out into the open ocean and be prepared for crossover conditions: this is your surf ski
