Carolina construction diagram:
Elite Pro Carbon technology construction is essential when winning is all that matters:
– The Carolina is fully built with Pro Carbon technology with extra carbon Innegra™ reinforcements around the nose, tail and lip of the cockpit for close quarter battles at race starts and from the chasing racers in a draft train.
– Cutting edge aerospace carbon fibers and ultra-light core materials are combined with our unique vacuum construction, making Pro Carbon the lightest, stiffest and fastest racing construction technology available.
– Featuring a PVC reinforced deck for integrity plus carbon rails for stiffness reducing flex and making the board ultra responsive.
– Pro Carbon is an elite construction technology that is standard in our production race boards allowing you to own exactly the same boards that NSP pros Travis Grant, Titouan Puyo and Ty Judson win on.
CARBON REINFORCED RAIL LIPS & CARBON RAIL BAND
By using Innegra™ Carbon for the rail lips in favor of “conventional” biaxial carbon, one of the most ding-prone areas on any race board is drastically reinforced without weight penalties. Ding resistance, durability and damage tolerance all increase, protecting your equipment. All 2020 recessed NSP Raceboards benefit from this new construction, along with Uni-directional rail bands (on the side) and 100% biaxial carbon layups (on the deck and bottom).
How To Turn Your Board
Tips for turning the Carolina
Turning a recessed board (dugout) can take some time to get used to. You may encounter water that comes into the tray (deck) of the board if you raise the nose too high during a turn. We asked Team Rider Titouan Puyo to show us how he maneuvers the Carolina around a buoy while keeping his speed up, while the water out. Be sure to step back, keep the nose down on the turn, and then quickly step back to the center. Have a look at the video.
“Stoked on the new 2021 20.5” Carolina. This is my 4th generation of this board and what Alain Teurquetil, Travis Grant, Titouan Puyo, Ty Judson, Annie Star has designed over the years is one awesome board. As soon as I stepped on it, it felt like home. I felt planted, the soft rails made for subtle movements, no twitching what.so.ever.”
“In its element, water with texture is where this board excels but it’s not out of place in the flats either. Can’t wait to spend more time on mine”
Brandon van Elslander, Teamrider Canada
