Stable, wide, and flatter-rockered, the NSP Elements Fish Shortboard Surfboard is as fast as it is fun. Ready to rip in all conditions, this board has a wide nose to add volume under your chest for more paddle power, as well as provide easy entry into even the smallest waves with quick acceleration and drive. A slight hip behind the front fins reduces the area under your back foot to create a pivot point for snappy, livelier turns, while boxy and full rails also add to its volume and overall forgiving feel. The Elements Fish gives you traction, down-the-line speed, and maximum drive through some of the flattest sections.
