Who’s the CSE Tinder-D8 for
The CSE Tinder-D8 is another chapter in NSP’s high-performance shortboard line-up, offering accessible shortboard performance by applying key hybrid shape elements. With more volume than the Chopstix, especially in the nose where it counts during paddling, a Tinder-D8 enables you to catch more waves and enjoy yourself at every session. The tail offers balance and speed, thanks to a flatter rocker.
A 5-slot fin cluster allows for fine-tuning and different setups, with FTU-compatible boxes.
The CSE Tinder-D8 is a Shaper’s Union creation, a collaboration between NSP and world-class shapers like Marcie O’Neill.
Established to bring new energy and high-performance to the surf line-up, Shapers Union is NSP’s way to showcase the incredible skill and talent of some of the most accomplished shapers in the world.
Marcie grew up surfing in Australia and has over three decades of shaping and designing surfboards under his belt. Aside from key contributions to our longboards and mid-length shapes, the TInder-D8 is Marcie’s latest addition to the NSP line-up, making him an indispensable member of the Shapers Union.

This Tinder-D8 is built with NSP’s Shapers Union high-performance custom surf epoxy lay-up. Our most seasoned shapers picked a unique glassing schedule for the board, instead of a one-size-fits-all technology.
Shapers Union high-performance, custom surf epoxy lay-up, with a clear UV-stable resin and satin rub finish utilizes a CNC-cut 36g EPS core, hand-shaped to detail, with wet lamination of full 220g (8oz) biax glass + 4oz deck and 4oz bottom with additional overlap on the rails + 4oz n patch and fiberglass-reinforced tail patches. This lightweight, durable shortboard offers plenty of flex for ultimate performance.

CSE Tinder-D8 Testimonials
When asked to just go surf the Tinder-D8 6’4, Mark Zahn set it up as a thruster, and he didn’t like it. He then set it up as a quad for the next day and loves it. He was asked to surf it at least 3 times as a quad before straight-up giving us the good and the bad feedback.
Here’s what Mark had to say…
“I’m loving that board man seriously haven’t felt this good surfing since I was like 40lbs lighter haha” – Mark Zahn, California
