The 8’2 Time Cruise is a timeless shape that’s still a lot of fun to ride. For those looking for classic, beautiful longboard that has proven its value through the years, this board is for you. Ride it as a single fin or for more control throw in the twins.
About the shape : Round bevels with a little concave under the nose, that evolves into a round vee to flat vee under the pin tail. Boxy rails for maximum buoyancy.
Premium vintage shape by Gérard Dabbadie
More natural materials: Paulownia wood & Flax fiber
Woodcore fins included
Varnish-free matte finish
Designed in France
Paddling out to the peak at dawn, walking through the woods in search of a new break, having a chat about the session around the campfire at sunset… EARTH Surf is much more than just surfing. It is a way of life, in close interaction with nature, where exploration and adventure prevail on performance under the spotlight. It is taking you back to the essence of free surfing, be as one with the environment and take this whole journey as an escape from the outside world, fun and relaxing, Deep into Nature.
At EARTH Surf, our mantra Deep into Nature translates in the way we behave and in the way we built every board in our range. Our board is the only tool we use to engage and interact with our surroundings. We feel the same principles that guide us in our daily lives should be applied to the equipment we build and use.
Our new EARTH Surf range uses techniques and materials that respect the environment in which they are used:
Matt Varnish-Free finish.
Results are surprisingly light, beautiful and robust boards with a natural matt wooden finish. In short, an EARTH Surf board will be your loyal travel companion for all your surfing adventures.

We have carefully selected materials which are bio-sourced and also have the necessary technical properties to ensure solid construction and performance. Flax fiber, Paulownia wood and Cork wood have been tested and proven in other industries and they now play a key role in the sourcing and production of EARTH SURF & SUP boards. Looking towards the future, potential areas of ongoing development include the sourcing of materials for the foam core, the resins used in EARTH SURF & SUP boards, and the packaging. We currently use polystyrene foam for the core of EARTH SURF & SUP boards. While this foam is recyclable it is nonetheless a petroleum derivative. Research of alternative materials continues and we plan to transition to a bio-sourced material as soon as feasible. The same is true of bio-resins. For now we continue to use epoxy resin due to the limitations in performance of currently available bio-resins. We will move to a new resin as soon as an acceptable alternative is found. Finally, we plan to optimize the packaging of EARTH SURF & SUP boards as soon as a feasible and a practical solution has been found.
Paddling out to the peak at dawn, hiking through the forest in search of a new break, gliding silently across the surface of a glassy lake, exploring new waterways, reminiscing about the session around a campfire at sunset… EARTH SURF & SUP is an outdoor lifestyle closely connected with nature where exploration and adventure prevail. It’s taking you back to the essence of free surfing, adventure paddling, life on the water. Escape from the world on an adventure Deep into Nature for an afternoon, a week-end, a lifetime.
At EARTH SURF & SUP our mantra, Deep into Nature, is as much about the equipment we use as the places we go. The boards are the tools we use to engage and interact with our surroundings. We feel the same principles that guide us in our daily lives should be applied to the equipment we build and use. EARTH SURF & SUP is a full range of products which, wherever possible and feasible, aim to build and source our gear with construction techniques and materials that respect the environment in which they are used:
A focus on bio-sourced, renewable materials.
A production process that is more respectful of sustainable development, limiting waste by minimizing the use of fossil fuels, painting & toxic resins.
A commitment to ongoing research and development to further our commitment to these principals.
Unfortunately it is simply not possible today to build a board with zero impact on the environment. For example, at the core of every EARTH SURF & SUP board is an EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene) core, as no other feasible alternative exists. However, with EARTH we’ve made the pledge to be better, and to continually develop the range of products so that wherever possible, we will make changes that make a difference.
