This Kym Thompson, high-performance longboard, breaks the rules with quick and dynamic carving, combined with traditional style for intermediate- to advanced surfers. The use of uni-directional Flax Fiber rails means stronger rails and less fiberglass on your board.

Not shaving down a complete blank, but using precision-molded blanks that require infinitely less shaping is also a great way to reduce the amount of shaping bay dust by 95%.

Riders who love PU-style longboards need to look into the PU version of the Hooligan.

Rail: Full, tucked edge
Bottom: Concave into Vee
Ideal waves: 1- 6ft
Level: Beginner – Expert

Hooligan CocoFlax Design:

  • A Hooligan CocoFlax design combines the responsiveness of a narrow shortboard tail plus rail profiles to create a longboard that carves unlimited lines and hits the lip.
  • The advanced surfer will appreciate loads of hollowed V under the feet to give quick rail-to-rail turns.
  • Use a small single fin for small surf then add side biters and a larger center fin as wave size and power increase.
  • The Flax version of the Hooligan comes with a tail patch for additional durability, while the Blue version does without it, tipping the scales a little less. The NSP Hooligan is a Kym Thompson shape.
  • The Hooligan comes with a center slot and two FTU boxes for quick fin installation and release.
  • The round tail is a key element in the Hooligan’s unusual agility.

Hooligan CocoFlax Fins:

The Hooligan CocoFlax is available with NSP’s FTU fin boxes (compatible with Futures® fins) and Surf 10 center fin box.

As a center fin option, we recommend the 8″ Cocomat Fin as a perfect match, both in visual style and eco-conscious construction method.

About Kym Thompson

Starting at the young age of 15, Kym Thompson made designing surfboards his life’s work and to this day he designed and shaped everything from single fin boards, right down to all multi-fin configurations.

Originally Kym began his career shaping longboards and as the shortboard era took hold, Kym advanced his skills and transitioned his designs to meet the demands of the market.

From the beginning, dating back to 2001, Kym and NSP built a strong partnership with Kym being the mastermind behind the popular PU Heritage Series. His Endless, Hooligan, Dream Rider and Fighting Fish shapes are now integrated in the light weight and sustainable Cocomat and Coco Flax series.

NSP is looking forward to continuing a long tradition of bringing high quality, innovative, yet affordable surfboards by Kym Thompson to the market.
