“Our INDY BEST BUY is the Quroc Qi Crossover!”
“If you want to expand your horizons then the Quroc Qi Crossover 11’4 is the paddle board that will get you there. It’s also the ultimate confidence builder so it will suit beginners and seasoned SUPers alike.”
“A real dream to paddle!”
“The board is exceptionally comfortable to ride, stable to stand up on and grippy once you’re up and paddling.”
“Suitable for beginners, the board is the ideal set-up for touring and, as your confidence builds and you get into longer distance trips, you won’t need to upgrade to a different model.”
“Sporty and sleek, the responsive Quroc Qi Crossover 10 6 Paddle Board gets top marks for manoeuvrability and design! It’s simply the best board out there!”
“Dynamic. nifty and responsive!”
“In open water it flew downwind; afterwards, it proved streamlined enough to battle my way against the wind.”
“The pure carbon paddle can translate even inefficient technique into reasonable speed.”
Quality board and accessories. Took me a while to pump it up and could only get it to just under 18psi but this made no difference to performance. Felt solid, tracked well and is easy to manoeuvre. The carbon paddle is a dream to use - so light compared to my other aluminium one. Took it out for a spin as soon as I could! Im an all year round boarder so it will be in continuous use. Looking forward to longer distances in the summer. Had my eye on this board for ages and so glad I decided to buy it. Was considering a bluefin but reviews for the aftersales and guarantee for this board swung it for me. Delivery was next day as promised too. Would definitely recommend.
Arrived promptly, haven’t inflated as of yet, but it all seems OK apart from a couple of marks on the paddle handle, and a little rub on the bag…I give 9.9 out of 10, but will see what it paddles like…when the weather improves.
I bought my board after chatting to Andy and trying a friend's Quroc out. This board is impressive, after trying other boards out and not being happy with the quality of the manufacturer, I decided to go for the Quroc. The package is outstanding for the price you pay and I love paddling the board, its a stable and a comfortable ride.
I want one in each size 😄
What can a say but this board is amazing, very light to carry, stable and super quick on the water
Sales staff very quick to answer super service very helpful
Would recommend these SUP Packages every time
This is my 3rd Quroc, I also have the 13' and the 12'6, each one of them superb. Both the customer service and the product are second to none.
I am intermediate experienced, woman 57-yo, and I chose the 10'6 crossover after searching the web for weeks, comparing similar boards looking for top stiffness, lightness, quality. The Quroc looked a good combination and I decided to order it, also with an eye to favouring what lookes a small company attentive to environmental concerns. After trying it the very first time, I am extremely well-impressed by the manouvrability, stiffness, responsivness of my new Quroc board. It is rather easy to carry, compared to similarly sized boards. The graphics look even nicer than on the pictures on the web! :) It is extremely well accessorized: even if this was not a parameter that I considered, I must say that the package is quite rich. I tried to use the pump to inflate up to 10 PSI(<5 minutes), then I used my electric pump to finish to 18 because I was eager to put the board in the water, and I must say that hand pumping up to 18 looked challenging. Even if I did not need the paddle, the one provided in the package is really light and surely of much higher quality than the ones usually sold in allaround packages. The expedition was immediate after my order(ordered on sunday, it was processed on monday morning), and since I am in EU it took 5 days to arrive, just in time to use it for the next weekend, and the entire process was very efficient.
Before I bought my board I emailed Quroc to ask several questions to figure out the right board for me. I got helpful responses back every time and I’m very happy with the board I got. It’s stiff, stable and tracks well, time will tell but it seems really well made and the warranty gives me peace of mind. The paddle is light and very comfortable to use and I like that it comes in it’s own bag.
I had a minor fault with the board bag when it came, I sent a picture of the issue and Andrew immediately sent out a new bag.
After a friend recommended Quroc boards to me I’ve been after one for a while and then comes along the Big Green 10 year Anniversary sale and I couldn’t say no!!
The board arrived the next day despite it being a Saturday and the whole package is just excellent. The board itself is super stable compared to the hire boards I have used previously, it’s very rigid and the large FCS fin that comes included keeps the board tracking straight. The pump is efficient and had the board inflated in no time and the carbon paddle is unbelievable. All this with £300 off!! I literally feel like I’ve robbed Quroc.
Had a Red Paddle Co all round board for 6+ years and wanted to change to something more distance orientated. Eventually chose the 11'4". Only had 1 outing so far but noticed the difference immediately. Gets through the water so much easier and tracks straight, so does exactly what I wanted. The quality of the board and accessories is right up there with my old Red Paddle Co board and the package contents are great value. Especially the full carbon paddle, which is 300g lighter than my old one. Really pleased overall and looking forward to having some longer days out!
After doing lots of research and speaking to people who own a Quroc I decided to buy this board.
It’s very stable, light to carry, paddle is amazingly light and the package is of good quality. I’m one happy lady!
Bought it as first board, tostado novice. Did research and this board made it to my top three list! Do not regret buying it at all-great board, kit and even greater price when you look at the items you get for it. It is stable on river or sea! Tackles rapids extremely well as well! Carries me, kit and most of the time my son on it too. Has lots of handles and bungees to strap anything you might need. It is bulky as expected, awkward to carry as I’m a shorty, but it is sooooo light! And don’t get me started on the carbon paddle which is light and comfortable. Oh did I mention velcro holders that everyone envy? They are great to keep water bottles to hand. Really worthy investment.
Only used 2 times very easy to use very stable very impressed 5stars
Two friends already had the Quroc 13 so I watch the reviews online and the feedback was excellent. Was encouraged by another firmed who also purchased a Quroc board. So glad I made the purchase. Excellent value for money. The paddle and extras great quality. On the water the board is very stable on river and sea. It’s really helped my confidence and improved my paddle experiences.
I did a lot of research before choosing this board and it's just so good, especially the pump. As a grandmother in my sixties I was concerned how easy I would find it to pump up and to manoeuvre the board out of the water. No worries, the pump is excellent and only takes me about 4 minutes to fully inflate. Very stable and responsive board. Thank you Quroc!
Great service and professional advice. Andrew took the time to understand my needs an then recommend the appropriate board. Looking at buying a second board from them now.
