Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

The Cocomat Cruise is best suited for paddlers looking to get an beginner-friendly all around board with an eco-friendly angle. Offered in four different sizes (9’8”, 10’2”, 11’, 11’6”) the Cocomat Cruise is nice and stable, allowing for paddlers of all ages and skill levels the chance to have fun. The board utilizes NSP’s Cocomat construction which gives the board a good durability, but it also is an environment-friendly material. The board is also pretty lightweight, weighing just over 20lbs. As an all around board, the Cocomat Cruise is best suited for short distance paddling around the shore but can also be used for catching some waves. Starting at $1,325, the Cocomat Cruise sits in the mid-level price point.

First Impressions

The Cocomat Cruise is arguably the most environmentally-friendly board on the market right now. It is incredibly lightweight and beautiful as well. It has a mix of coco fibers on the deck and coco flex on the rails to strengthen the rails. The color combination is quite classy. It’s a great board for the whole family with plenty of flotation, great stability, and tons of attachments on the nose so you can easily attach your GoPro, bungee cords, and all kinds of other accessories. It’s definitely more on the premium side, combining environmentally-minded construction with a beautiful aesthetic.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    All-Around

    Paddle Boards fall into two broad categories, All-Around and Specialty boards, with all-around designed primarily for recreation while speciality boards for top performance in specific disciplines

  • Durability

    Very Durable

    Durability is largely a result of the board construction and shape, with more durable boards typically carrying more materials (added layers, PVC, etc) and as such adding to the weight.

  • Carrying

    Very Easy

    Carrying ease is determined by board weight and handle type, where a board weighing under 20lbs with a Liftsup handle is extremely easy to carry while a 35+lbs board quite difficult.

  • Stability

    Stable

    Stability is a product of construction and shape, where boards w/ 30”+ wide and 200+ liters in volume offer plenty of stability for your AVG adult while a board under 26” wide is a challenge.

  • Glide

    Average

    Glide is a result of board shape and construction, w/ boards weighing under 30lbs and designed for racing offering best glide while recreational boards normally being on the slow side
