this is my small wave board its 1 7/8 thick im 227 lb ....
it catches waves real easy due to the width....
platty is right about the glassing of nsp...
Bert--------- You blow me away with your wooden boards and fins. I am definatly gonna come down there when I make my trip to NZ. I gotta check out your boards up close. You guys are right about the weight, glassing etc. on these boards. I have seen lots of them on Maui. Primarily as rental boards. They are heavy, a little sluggish and damned near indestructable. The templates are decent, the rails are boxy. They are cheap and mostly aimed at beginners. McDing

I have looked closely at these boards.
Surprisingly weighty, dull in finish & form, unrefined, for overseas tourists to destroy in the shorebreak.
If you gave me one, i wouldnt ever use it, not even once.
Also come with a fin system that no one has ever seen before and that means no decent fins, no way to replace them.
Dont do your surfing such a diservice.
Looks like a kinda fishy board, but I'm sure thats where the resembelance ends. I'd been told by the dude in the shop that those NSPs were heavier/stronger than yoru standard custom so assume not quite the same as tufflite. Is a heavy 5'6" a good size for a first shortboard? I've seen those boards around as hire boards a lot as well.
However you feel about Surftech and boardworks is probably how your gonna feel about NSP. We have had alot of that imported sweat shop junk here on my home break. I have seen many broken and dinged. Just as many a conventional surfboards.
Interesting answers... no one has tried them and no one likes them.. kind of what I was expecting..
I also found the dimensions funny, and the ad is'nt serious.
I guess popouts, tuflites and surftechs is definitive insult to all the hours spent in shaping rooms around the world... (well... i know the tuflite story ok.. but still..)
McCook-------- I have ridden boards by NSP, but not that particular model. I would expect the same general performance characteristics. Boxy rails and heavier weight make for a sluggish board. McDing
