NSP TECHNOLOGIES

At NSP, we hand-pick and test all of our materials to understand the full scope of their durability, flexibility, strength and eco-friendly characteristics. This extensive testing all serves to provide you with the very best performing product, every time you get out on the water.

Our goal is to produce affordable, lightweight, versatile, durable and great performing surf and sup boards at a competitive price-point. Working together, with our manufacturer since 2001, we created an epoxy technology that would go on to revolutionize the industry and quite possibly recreational surfing.

We hope you have as much fun riding our boards as we have creating them for you.

Nature Flex Logo

NSP’s Nature Flex technology is NSP’s latest eco-friendly line in surfboard construction. Building on the overwhelming response to the CSE range designed by Carl Schaper, NSP R&D created an eco-centered alternative for the Shapers Union Pro-9, Butter Knife, and The Cheater.

Nature Flex lay-ups consist of a strong, SecureCell EPS core, which benefits the environment by minimizing foam cut-offs and foam dust waste. The core is reinforced with a 6mm bamboo wood stringer and wrapped in a strong, durable and warp-resistant Paulownia wood skin.

The result is a state-of-the-art surfboard shape, with an eco-friendly footprint and a classic design.
