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. I’m sure 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:

What Size Longboard Surfboard?
The longboards generally range from 8-14 feet, and the majority of them 9-11 feet.
Surfers who weigh less than 200lbs (90kg) / should get a board 9′ – 9’6″ in length while surfers over 200lbs (90kg+) are better off with 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
The NSP Elements Longboard is a choice for intermediate to advanced surfers, who already have learned the basics of surfing. Surfing a longboard requires basic knowledge and some groovy skills. It is not a perfect surfboard for beginners since it’s heavyweight and substantial construction might be too much to handle.
It’s perfect for once a week/month surfers, or a choice to fill up the quiver for small days.
