The new NSP Carolina is a winning tool for 90% of all racing conditions that a competitive stand-up paddle racer encounters. The bottom shape of the new Carolina remains the same, as its performance conquered a lot of podium finishes.
Evolved width equals performance gains
A reduced width is nothing without stability. Optimizing the center of gravity for the Carolina resulted in a more balanced riding experience. This allowed us to decrease the width for noticeable performance gains
By lowering the center of gravity across the entire shape, not just the standing area, athletes benefit consistently, even when they are on the back of the board. The improved stability allows athletes to go more narrow, and reap the benefits of the increased performance throughout the Carolina range.
Added width in the standing area
Note the subtle dug-out at the bottom of the rails, allowing a wider stance and improved stability. The NSP Carolina comes with a single centered, neoprene handle placed on a balanced fixture point for ultra-fast beach starts and close-call finishes.
• Increased rail lip around cockpit reduces water intake in the standing area.
• Recessed deck allowing for low center of gravity and adds stability.
• High-performance tail for easy buoy turns.
By using Innegra™ Carbon for the rail lips in favour of “conventional” biaxial carbon, one of the most ding-prone areas on any raceboard is drastically reinforced without weight penalties. Ding resistance, durability and damage tolerance all increase, protecting your equipment.
All recessed NSP Raceboards benefit from this new construction, along with Uni-directional rail bands (on the side) and 100% biaxial carbon layups (on the deck and bottom). 4 Drain holes quickly expel excess water from the dugout.
A patented GORE® vent near the GoPro (or GPS) fixture point prevents a pressure build-up, allowing oxygen to pass but keeping out moisture.
