Additional Information

Who’s the Tinder-D8 for

The 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.

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
