Carbonology Sport launches a new surfski into the beginner market today: the Carbonology Cruze.  The Cruze is aimed at the same market segment as the Think Eze, the Fenn Bluefin and other ultra stable skis.

“It handles like a dream, turns well, pops waves well, pulls out of waves well, does not nose dive and is super stable,” said Hein van Rooyen, CEO of Carbonology Sport. 

“I can’t fault it... but I am biased after al!” he laughed.

Launch Parties

The ski is being officially launched tonight at the Blue Water Canoe Club time trial in Port Elizabeth and will also be featuring at the St. Francis Bay time trial on Wednesday.
