Teacher's Pet Features
Teacher’s Pet with the paddle position
The paddle position, oval in the center of the deck, allows inexperienced riders to better position themselves correctly on the board with ease “sometimes referred to as the balance point” reducing the chances of being too far forward making the board nose dive or too far back making the board wheelie.
The outside lines of the oval are also a great guide as to where your center finger of flat hands should be placed when under your chest (preventing riders from grabbing the rails). This helps in getting the rider into that pinpoint technique for the all-important ‘pop up’ from the start.
The centerline running through the oval & from nose to tail acts as a guide to easily center your body from the left to right sides of the board. This creates confidence in the riders, knowing that each and every time they get on the board, they are in a perfect position. This also provides school instructors with an easy-to-use teaching tool.
Learning to surf can be exhausting, so there is no need to push your students unnecessarily. The Teacher’s Pet features a convenient handle on the bottom of the board, just below the rail and over its center of gravity. Watch your students carry your boards to-and-from the spot with ease, instead of dragging the boards behind them.
Straight A’s all round.
For other soft board options by NSP, the more recreational Sundowner is perfect for travelers or a spontaneous session, while the P2 Soft range offers wider boards, longboards and funboards for dedicated schools and surf camps.
