It offers a light and responsive feel, allowing the rider to effortlessly drive upwind, execute tight turns, and hit the lip of the wave. Designed for everyday use, the Cross is suitable for various conditions.
For 2024, the Cross has been constructed with durable EcoLite Impact Resistant Bamboo. Its surf outline features reduced nose and tail width, enhancing control and maneuverability.

The board is equipped with North Hexcel Coremat Fins, sold separately, and can be used with a quad setup for increased rail grip in bigger waves. It features a lightweight premium fin box compatible with FCSI and FCSII fins.
To ensure maximum traction and control, the Cross has a micro-corduroy textured one-piece EVA deckpad with a front toe bump and rear wedge kick. In challenging conditions, the board offers a comfortable stance with the option to use lightweight memory foam surf straps for a custom fit and increased control.
Packaged in an eco-friendly manner, the Cross no longer includes plastic materials that contribute to plastic waste. Instead, a cushioning material that mimics honeycomb is used to protect the board from impact and abrasion.
The Cross has been designed to provide stability, ease of use, and a comfortable riding experience. With its bamboo veneer construction, it offers both global stiffness and impact resistance, while remaining lightweight and agile. Whether you're into big turns, airs, or freestyle, the Cross is a board that can do it all.
