NSP Surfboard Technology

Protech boards are built from a secure cell EPS core, and reinforced with a combination of 6-or 4 oz* layers of fiberglass.

Layers
The Fish and Hybrid are built with a combination of 6 and 4 oz. decks. The funboard and longboard use a double layer of 6 oz instead. For the bottom of the boards, the entire lineup uses a combination of 6 + 4 oz and an additional 4 oz patch.

Carbon Flex Tail
Strategically applied to the back end of the rails, the Carbon Flex Tail provides increased durability. A Carbon Flex Tail is also more responsive than a conventional construction and provides unparalleled flex response in turns.

Bio epoxy resin
Protect boards are Eco-Board certified. EPS-moulded blanks already require less material, reducing environmental impact. Using bio epoxy resin minimizes the footprint of Protect boards even further.

*6 and 4 refer to how much the fiberglass cloth weighs per square yard

Super Durable, Impact Resistant and Great for Surf Foiling.

• SLX – Super Light Epoxy. Lightweight, responsive and extremely versatile boards.

• The standing area is reinforced with biaxial glass adding extra strength to avoid dings or dents from excessive pumping, while also helping to prevent delaminating.

• The rail-to-rail carbon vector net wrap creates optimal board performance by providing unmatched flex and strength throughout the board, while making it less prone to breakage. The board has a consistent feel and flexes naturally with the water conditions or when pressure is applied from the rider pumping the board.

• Dual Uni-directional Carbon bottom stringers provide the optimum flex needed for enhanced performance.

All boards come equipped with a NSP foiling tail pad and twin track mount, designed for the NSP Airwave Hydrofoil, but will accommodate other foils on the market as well.

LIGHT.  STIFF AND DURABLE

The NSP O² inflatable line presents a solution to a very real problem: Space, because not everyone has the available space for a full-size SUP. O² inflatables also make excellent cruisers for rivers and especially rapids, as no other board is as impact resistant as these inflatables. Focus on your journey instead of dings. The Fusion Technology (FS) series is our premium double-layered inflatable technology, built to last.

– Glueless reinforced double layer on the deck and bottom.
– Dual railbands for stiffness and durability.
– 3/4 square groove deck pad for comfort.
– D-rings on nose and tail.

LESS FLEX, STRONG AND DURABLE

The SR inflatables feature Dyneema® stringer technology to prevent the lateral flex conventional inflatables suffer from. Great value for money, SR inflatables allow you to store or carry your O² inflatable where hardboards take up too much space.

– Full-length deck and bottom stringers for flex control
– Dual rail band for stiffness and durability
– D-rings nose and tail
– 3/4 diamond groove EVA deck pad for comfort
