The CocoFlax Cruise is a verified “Gold Level” Sustainable Surf product
All NSP Cocoflax boards carry the desirable Gold Level certificate, issued by Sustainable Surf. Our ongoing cooperation with them and Harmless Harvest and our commitment to recycling and sustainable manufacturing make this one of the most eco-friendly boards on the market right now.
The eco-friendly construction makes for a visually unique board with an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio. Your CocoFlax Cruise is light to carry, easy to maneuver and a breeze to paddle. Its responsive flex and strength instill confidence, inviting you to push the envelope and progress while you play.
9’8″ tail shape
While the smallest CocoFlax Cruise (9’8) has a rounded tail (pictured below) which helps maneuverability, the bigger sizes benefit from a squashed tail for a slightly quicker release.
After testing the different shapes, we found that the round tail is more responsive on the smaller 9’8″. It didn’t scale up to the 10’2″ upwards though, so adding the squashed tail works better for the bigger boards in the range, as it releases better.
CocoFlax Cruise Construction
Amazingly light, yet strong, high-end eco-friendly performance boards featuring natural Flax rails. Recognized and awarded at the 2019 Paddle Expo as “Product of the Year”. What’s more, all NSP Cocoflax boards carry the highly desirable “Gold Level” Ecoboard label. Boards carrying this label are manufactured with more sustainable materials, sourced from responsible supply chains, and made by board builders with improved manufacturing processes.
In 2019, NSP introduces uni-directional (UD) Flax fiber rails to its (already) eco-friendly CocoMat series. Flax is a highly durable and naturally reinforced fiber that allows a board construction with significantly less fiberglass, which reduces our overall carbon footprint.
