A downwind, recessed shape will allow you to effortlessly link bump after bump
An NSP Sonic performs best when you hit some chop or string together bump after bump on big ocean swells.
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.”
The 2020 Sonic performs in up- and crosswind conditions and is designed specifically as an open-water, downwind race board. It doesn’t compromise for maximum performance, with a pintail and recessed deck, the centre of gravity is lowered. Along with an optimised width, this is the most stable Sonic to date. A balanced rocker conserves energy, which translates to better performance on race day.
The 14/25.5 model is a more stable and comfortable version of the 14/24 . Consider this:
If a rider is not used to being in front of the pack in an elite field or simply battles for a win in a specific age group, this athlete will most certainly be faster on the 14/25.5 than the 14/24.
All current Sonics use the same rocker line as last year’s 14/24 and 14/25.5 models.
Pin-tailed and typically have more nose rocker to suit downwind conditions.
This year’s Sonic is using a new concept, a bottom that combines the added stability of last year’s model and the extreme glide of our dominating Molokai designs.
For 2020, the Sonic does no longer include the narrower lower rocker version that the Sonic 14/23 had before. You can find elements of that shape in the brand new Carolina model.
The Sonic 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.
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 of the boards.
