Tinder-D8 Shape

The Tinder-D8, with a rounded square tail and quad- or thruster fin set-up, a single concave from the mid-section through to a double out the fins, combined with a flatter rocker, gets you down the line fast, keeps you in the pocket and enhances your maneuvers.


Protech performance custom lamination provides the sweet spot between custom shaping and high-end manufactured boards. This layup combines a 36g secure cell EPS core, laminated with a full 6 + 4oz deck and 6 + 4oz fin patch, carbon fiber-reinforced tail patches to distribute power to the fins, with a UV-stable resin tint and satin rub finish.

Tinder-D8 Protech Colours

NSP’s tint lamination process gives each board a unique, artistic and custom-like finish. Go check them out at your local shop – it’s a visually appealing look.

Fin setup

The Protech Tinder-D8 has 3 FTU boxes (compatible with Futures® Fins) and we include a set of MFC-designed thruster fins. The CSE version has a five-fin cluster, just like the Elements version.
