Do you love to cruise? If so, welcome back to the traditional form of skateboarding with the 37′′ Dolphin model. Making long, drawn out carving turns is where the new 37′′ longboard cruiser excels. It has a wide, slightly concave deck which tapers down to a medium rear kicker. This gives you improved control when carving or gliding across steep slopes, and the 50mm wide rubber wheels provide the board with extra stability and superior grip.

Deck Thickness 5 ply Stratified American Beech,
2 ply Canadian Maple
Deck Width 26.5cm

The Dolphin Cruiser board is a lot bigger than all the other model SmoothStars and the wheelbase is a lot larger. This means that the turning circle or arc, will be a lot less critical which will feel more like a longboard turn. However, the board will not be as responsive to body movement which is more important for surfing. But if you want a delayed feel to your SmoothStar, the Dolphin Cruiser is a good option. Please remember that when you are riding, it is always important that your surf stance stays the same and you do not widen it for a longer board like the Dolphin Cruiser. The Dolphin Cruiser is also very fast and it does cross over to the cruising element where there is a nice mix of carving from rail to rail, to riding with surf turns. It is especially good for travelling long distances as it is one of the fastest boards due to the longer wheelbase.
