The NSP Molokai is named and designed after one of the most demanding of all races – M2O, The Molokai2Oahu.
NSP team rider Travis Grant won this legendary title in 2018 and 2017. His experience in this gruelling race, combined with the designs of Alain Teurquetil accumulated in the 2019 Molokai Unlimited Pro Carbon, an elite shape that performs in any downwind, upwind, side-wind or semi-flat to choppy race you find yourself in.
This board is recognized by the Sustainable Surf Foundation as a Level One Eco Board;
“An ECOBOARD is a high-performance sustainable board. It has the same technical performance attributes as any modern water-sport board, while having reduced environmental and toxic impacts.”
– Balanced rocker to save energy.
– Integrated steering system.
– The 17’2/26 flat deck is unchanged.
The 17’2/23 recess uses a new concept bottom that combines the added stability the 2018 version has and the extreme glide these shapes are known for. This allows you to link bump after bump in an effortless way. Key design elements can be found in the 14’ Sonic as well. The newly introduced 17’2/25 recess also shares important design elements of the 17’2/23 but offers a more comfortable racing experience.
The Molokai comes with neoprene handles on several balanced fixture points. 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. The proven steering setup features a rudder box and an easy-to-operate pedal.
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 2020 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).
Developed to win unlimited races at all costs, NSP now offers a carbon race rudder for the Molokai. The current Molokai comes standard with the steering system and previous Molokai version can be retrofitted as well. The Molokai Carbon Race Rudder is designed by Trent Pedersen and responds immediately to inputs making steering your board more intuitive than ever before. Racers can set the steering sensitivity to their exact needs and emergency adjustments can be made on the water.
