The Cheater

Designed by Carl Schaper, The Cheater is in it to win it!

Beautiful outlines combined with relaxed nose rockers, classic roll to V with double concaves in the tail combine to give you that “easy in” with loads of rail-to-rail performance.

This is a board that can fill so many slots in your quiver and would even be a solid choice as your only board. Wide enough, with enough volume to work well in average surf, The Cheater also lights up when the power comes on.

Progress from your longboards with The Cheater
A solid choice as an all-around board for almost all conditions and abilities, it is just as much a perfect board to transition down with from your regular longboard.

Built with NSP’s Shapers Union Custom Surf Epoxy (CSE) lay-up, we came up with a unique glassing schedule for The Cheater,  instead of a one-size-fits-all technology. It features a clear UV-stable resin and satin rub finish and combined with a CNC-cut EPS core, laminated with full 6+4oz deck and 6oz bottom, a 4oz fin patch, a 6mm wood stringer, bottom carbon stringer, and carbon-reinforced tail, giving you a mid-length board with great flex and performance that feels light and responsive.

The Cheater comes in a 4+1 fin configuration enabling you to be creative in your set-up as a quad or thruster. NSP positioned the Surf 10 fin box slightly further back to make it available for a thruster setup.

Available with FTU fin boxes and compatible with Futures® Fins (fins not included)
