The Cheater CSE

Designed by Carl Schaper, The Cheater is your mid-length that can fill multiple slots in a quiver. Whether in CSE or Nature Flex construction, a Cheater even works as a single board collection: Wide enough, with enough volume to work well in average surf, your Cheater lights up when the power comes on as well.

Progress from your longboards with The Cheater

A solid choice as an all-around board for almost all conditions and abilities, it is just as much a perfect board to transition down with from your regular longboard.

Bottom: Soft roll to mid-V to double concave
Rider: Intermediate – pro
Wave Type: All conditions


Beautiful outlines combined with relaxed nose rockers, classic roll to V with double concaves in the tail combine to give you that “easy in” with loads of rail-to-rail performance.


The Cheater comes in a 4+1 fin configuration enabling you to be creative in your set-up as a quad or thruster. NSP positioned the Surf 10 fin box slightly further back to make it available for a thruster setup. Available with FTU fin boxes and compatible with Futures® Fins (fins not included).

The Cheater Construction

CSE Construction:

Built with custom surf epoxy lay-up with a clear UV-stable resin and satin rub finish and combined with a CNC-cut EPS core, laminated with a full 220g biaxial 4oz deck and 6oz bottom, 4oz patches around the fin boxes, a 6mm wood stringer, bottom carbon stringer, and carbon-reinforced tail, giving you a durable longboard with great flex and performance, that feels light and responsive.

Think of CSE as a lighter, more performance-oriented version of the Cheater, compared to its Nature Flex version,
