PU Magnet

The PU Magnet is a funboard shape for weekend warriors appreciating PU and glass construction and vintage surfing style in general.

Based on our best-selling funboard shape, the PU Magnet benefits from a PU (polyurethane) core, adding some weight that translates to more hold in hollow waves, and a more composed riding character.


Rail : Full
Bottom : Single to V
Ideal waves : 1-6ft
Level : Beginner – Expert


Design:
A stunning combination of style and performance, the Magnet is one of the most popular shapes in the NSP range, built in classic PU & glass construction.
The 6mm stringer doesn’t just look pleasing, it also improves strength and rigidity of the Magnet.
Satin rub finish differentiates the Magnet from more conventional designs.
Semi-rounded nose with low entry rocker design puts more volume upfront to give more paddle power to catch waves early and easily.
A domed deck profile allows a forgiving but sensitive rail feel while the rounded pintail is pulled in adding control in bottom turns and cutbacks.
Concave bottom creates a fast water transition through to the tail – providing balance and control in a range of conditions.


FIN CLUSTER & CONSTRUCTION
In addition to the 8″ single fin setup that the Magnet comes with, the five- fin box system offers plenty of tuning options. Combine the 8” center fin with side bites or go quad on average-to-smaller days. Keep the thruster setup for the bigger days when conditions allow for committed turns.

Magnet Construction

PU Magnet construction diagram

A classy handmade board using heritage construction techniques with modern deep gloss colour tints.

–  Traditional custom shaped polyurethane (PU) core.
–  6 mm Wood stringer.
–  Highest quality materials finished with a super deep gloss for a custom board finish.

For that vintage look and feel from other shapes, look into the NSP Fighting Fish, Hooligan, the Dream RiderSleep Walker, King Fish or Endless.

Now available in clear PU coat as well, these boards combine mesmerizing looks with classic shaper designs.

PU & PE boards

PU as a construction refers to a board built from a Polyurethane blank with Polyester resin, whilst PE refers to a Polyurethane Blank with Epoxy resin.

These have long been the standard for most brands, and is the most widely and affordable option still out there. Due to the core’s density, a PU Magnet will sit a little lower in the water than a Protech or Elements Funboard. But this helps to keep your rail under, giving you a nice “knifey” feel when slicing through the waves face.

Being a touch heavier also helps them to handle choppy conditions better and are less prone to being bounced around. Sitting lower in the water also has its benefits to barrel riding, providing more hold in hollow waves.

Supplied with a single fin

Adding to the vintage character is the single fin setup, although the PU Magnet has a very complete fin cluster, allowing you to ride quad, thruster and any other combination you would like to try out. Out of the box however, the PU Magnet comes with a standard 8″ fin.
