The California Cruiser is a great board for catching waves, during crowded situations. It's a fluid, wave riding machine, that paddles well, while still maintaining maneuverability and stability. This surfboard is usually ridden between 6'-10 and 7'-6". With a fuller nose area for paddle power, the tail is pulled in more like a shortboard, giving it holding power in steeper sections. The Sauritch California Cruiser can work as your all around board and can adapt to all conditions. Now, you have the ability to keep up with the dreaded 8 foot spongy boards, hogging everything that flows into the lineup.
