NEW PRODUCT - NSP elements SUP - only $999.00

The NSP Elements SUP series has the perfect first board to enjoy the exciting sport of Stand-Up Paddling. Developed for cruising, cross-training, and small waves, it's generous shapes accommodates all levels. Choosing the right board for your first SUP experience is the difference between having a good time and a hard time.

The NSP Elements 10’2” SUP is a great all-rounder developed for cruising, cross-training, and riding small waves. This is a board that will accommodate all types of paddlers. The key feature of this board is the volume to size ratio. Boxy full rails and a generous outline which spans 32” in width means that just about anyone can ride this board without fear of tipping. It is incredibly stable which makes it a popular board for SUP school operators, yoga enthusiasts, and surfers who like to walk the board and nose ride. The relaxed rocker combined with a rolled bottom that runs into a single-to-double concave through the tail, strikes a balance between glide on flat water, and mobility on the waves. If you’re looking for one versatile board that will excel on all levels then the NSP Elements 10’2” SUP is the obvious choice.

The 10'6" is a bit more rounded out up front and fuller through the tail than the 10'0" it was based on. It has more glide and is at home with just a single fin although it has a three fin option, like all NSP's, with all fins included. While this board is often found gliding at your local lake, the 10'6" is also excellent in the surf. The 10'6" is still small enough to transport easily. It's the all-rounder for SUP paddlers under 85kg/185 lbs who enjoy both flat water and surfing their SUPs.

The 11'0" NSP Elements SUP is the perfect versatile SUP for anyone up to 95kg/200lbs. This board does it all well. The 11'0" is very stable, durable and light. For cross training SUP paddlers finding their way into the surf, this board is gaining a lot of popularity. The glide and stability that make it good for working out and exploring your local lake, also give it effortless wave catching ability for novice SUP surfers..

NSP Elements SUP boards are constructed from secure cell, fully fused EPS foam that's laminated and vacuum molded with a combination of high grade fiberglass and epoxy resin.  A durable polyurethane coating is integrated within the mould and then completed with a performance hybrid finish.
