Pro-9 Elements

The NSP Pro-9 is designed by Carl Schaper as a performance longboard, and it is the most high-performance longboard in the NSP lineup.

Consider the CSE-version of the Pro-9 the most performance-oriented version with carbon elements and a 6mm wood stringer. The Nature Flex version comes without carbon elements and is considered the more eco-friendly version of the Pro-9, while the Elements version of the Pro-9 features the most durable construction in the lineup with wide, fiberglass stringers and our precise- and ultra-durable Elements moulding technology.

The Pro-9 is a longboard with as much shortboard crammed into it as possible. Carl Schaper will often point out the back-third of the board, as it fits almost perfectly on his 6’2” step up, with the same thickness, tail dimensions and rails. The bottom has a soft roll to V in the middle, running into V with a double concave in the tail.

With several years of development, the latest and greatest tweak to the Pro-9 is in its nose-riding capability.  

Fin Setup:
The Pro-9 comes in a 4+1 fin configuration enabling you to be creative in your setup as a quad, thruster or single fin. NSP placed the Surf 10 fin box slightly further back, creating an ideal configuration for a thruster setup. The board comes with FTU fin boxes, making it compatible with Futures® Fins. Right out of the box, the Pro-9 Elements comes with a 2+1 set – a 9″ Nylon center fin and two MFC-designed side bites.

Who the Pro-9 Elements is for

This is a low-volume, high-performance, and durable longboard. Built-in NSP’s Elements Technology consists of an EPS SecureCell core, wrapped in lightweight fiberglass. This moulded, durable shell allows for highly accurate shape reproduction with dynamic flex characteristics that high-performance riders love.

The consistent feedback is that this board comes together in the more powerful swell, where bigger riders like to roam and use their strength and weight to full effect. Think serious speed from a longboard.
