The Tinder-D8 never lets you down, whether you swipe right, left or even up! Designed by Marcie O’Neill, the Tinder-D8 is your perfect match if you’re looking for a high-performance, allround shortboard that’s great in all conditions.

Wave type: All conditions
Ideal Waves: 1-6ft
Level: Intermediate to Advanced

The Tinder-D8, in a rounded square tail with 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 manoeuvres.

This CSE Tinder-D8 is built with NSP’s Shapers Union high-performance custom surf epoxy lay-up. Our most seasoned shapers picked a unique glassing schedule for the board, instead of a one-size-fits-all technology.

Chopstix Shaper's Union logo

Shapers Union high-performance, custom surf epoxy lay-up, with a clear UV-stable resin and satin rub finish utilizes a CNC-cut 36g EPS core, hand-shaped to detail, with wet lamination of full 220g (8oz) biax glass + 4oz deck and 4oz bottom with additional overlap on the rails + 4oz n patch and fiberglass-reinforced tail patches. This lightweight, durable shortboard offers plenty of flex for ultimate performance.

Shapers Union and Elements Tinder-D8’s are available with 5 FTU fin boxes so you can ride as a quad or thruster. (fins NOT included)

The Protech is only available with 3 FTU boxes (all compatible with Futures® Fins), while the Elements version comes with the similar fin cluster as the CSE version, with an MFC-designed thruster set right out of the box.
