The board comes with an FCS II tool-less 9” Dolphin Center Fin, a bungee attachment for either the nose or the tail of the board.

The Beach Cross is pretty versatile in design and can be used for all around paddling, fishing, yoga, and would be a good family board that can take a beating and last a long time. On the water the board was a bit slow and harder to turn due to the weight but was really stable even with boat wakes adding some wobble to the water’s surface. Overall, the board should be considered for beginner paddlers looking for something fairly affordable and extremely durable. Read more HERE.
