NSP Surfboards

Hawaii

NSP stands for New Surf Project. The NSP as a brand has gained success and rapid growth by producing high-quality surf gear at an affordable price tag. NSP is also known to make surfboards, stand up paddleboards and race SUPs and surfing accessories. Another trustful fact that speaks for the brand, is that many surf schools prefer their boards, and most likely many beginner surfers have come across an NSP surfboard personally.

Today, NSP surfboards are sold all over the world – in Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, South, and North America. The NSP produces a wide range of boards from sizes 4’9″ to 11′.

NSP Surfboards Range:

  • Grom surfboards
  • Shortboards
  • Fish surfboards
  • Funboards
  • Surf betty surfboards
  • Longboards
  • Stand-Up paddleboards

How to Choose a Longboard Surfboard size?

The longboards generally range from 8-14 feet, and the majority around 9-11 feet.

Surfers who weigh less than 200lbs (90kg) / should choose board in 9′ – 9’6″ feet length while surfers over 200lbs (90kg+) should pick a board from 9’6″ to 11′ feet in length.

Why choose a longboard over shortboard or a fish?

Longboards are super cruisy, and do not need a fast, powerful wave as the shortboard would. Longboards are also more fun and are not as physically demanding as the fish surfboards on small waves. The average longboard surfboard is best for smaller and weaker conditions.


NSP ELEMENTS LONGBOARD

Best surfing longboard review

The NSP Elements Longboard is mainly designed for intermediate to advanced surfers, who already have learned the basics of surfing. Surfing a longboard requires basic knowledge and some skill. It is not a perfect surfboard for beginners since it’s heavy weight and solid construction might be too much to handle for a beginner surfer.

Leash

The stock model does not feature a leash. As the board is large and bulky, we recommend getting a proper leash as an extra.

Optional Extras

All surfboards live up to or even outlive their expected lifespan – when they are properly taken care of. Think of the ways how surfboard helps us to achieve unlimited fun in the water. The only way to give back to the board – is to take care of them. And by that, I mean rinsing the board in the water and transporting it in a proper surfboard bag.
