The Cheater Nature Flex

A Carl Schaper design, the Cheater is your mid-length that can fill multiple slots in a quiver. Whether in CSE construction or Nature Flex, 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.

With a Surf 10 center fun positioned slightly further back, you get to set up a Cheater as a thruster as well. These shapes come with FTU fin boxes and are 100% compatible with Futures® Fins (fins not included).

Why does the table say EST under “Weight”?

A considerable part of The Cheater Nature Flex is hand-made and as such, weight varies from one board to another, with a 5% variance. To calculate a true average weight, NSP reserves the right to manufacture a certain number of boards before publishing the official weight. Until then, we rely on estimated weight (EST).

The Cheater Construction

NSP’s Nature Flex technology is the latest in our eco-friendly line of surfboard constructions. Building on our great response to Carl Schaper’s range of CSE boards, consumers will now have an eco-alternative for the CSE The Cheater.

Nature Flex lay-ups consist of a strong, SecureCell EPS core, which benefits the environment by minimizing foam cut-offs and foam dust waste. The core is reinforced with a 6mm bamboo wood stringer and wrapped in strong, durable, and warp-resistant Paulownia wood skin.

The result is a state-of-the-art shape with an eco-friendly footprint and a classic design.
