Overdrive PU Construction
Overdrive PU construction diagram
Precision-CNC cut, shaped, laminated and finished by hand. With a natural flex pattern and reliable feel, PU has been the standard construction for many years in the surfing industry.
While not as durable or as light as boards laminated with epoxy resin, PU performs in all surf conditions and can be adapted to suit a wide variety of surfboard models.
– CNC-profiled, hand-shaped high-density polyurethane foam with a wooden stringer
– High-quality polyester resin and fiberglass hand laminated and sanded to a satin-rub or fully polished high-quality finish
– NSP designed FTU fin boxes (compatible with Futures Fins) on all models
These have long been the standard for most brands and are the most widely and affordable option still out there.
Due to the core’s density, an Overdrive PU sits a little lower in the water than a PE board. Similar to the Sleep Walker in PU, this makes it easier to keep your rail under, requiring less input for slicy turns.
Being a touch heavier also helps PU boards 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.
The Overdrive PU is a Shaper’s Union creation, a collaboration between NSP and world-class shapers like Tully St.John.
Established to bring new energy and 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.
Having collaborated with numerous world champions, from longboarding to shortboarding, these artists and their shapes are now accessible to riders worldwide through NSP and the Shaper’s Union.
Living in the Noosa area, a legendary longboard spot, Tully St.John has established himself as the go-to shaper for longboard shapes in Australia and beyond.. His knowledge of shaping and construction is an essential part of the Shaper’s Union DNA.
