NSP Elements 10’2” SUP White Blue Standup Paddleboard Demo Sale. 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. 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.
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. This 11’6″ is stable, glides well in flat water, noserides, surf’s well, and can double as the family tandem too. 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.
The 10’2″ NSP combines stability and performance like no other board in our line. Complete with tip to tail deck pad this board is exceptional value. Constructed with super-durable, NSP E2 epoxy, the NSP boards offer hours of trouble free fun and are available in 5 sizes.
Even with a little west swell combining with some reflection off the beach the 23.5” wide NSP Puma Pro felt really stable. This surfabilty” is due to the rounded rails in the front part of the board becoming sharper at the tail. Once riding on the wave the NSP Puma Pro felt great.
This is the playground of the NSP Puma Pro. I paddled out on an early February morning where the waves were 1-2 feet with a just a few other surfers. This is where Miki Dorra defined modern surfing in the 60’s and where Laird Hamilton shot the Malibu pier on a SUP during the massive swell in the summer of 2014.
After 3 runs on the NSP Puma Pro my top speed achieved was 8.1mph. The NSP Puma Pro is really light at 22lbs. I was a little concerned about the stability of the 23.5” wide NSP Puma Pro but after a few minutes of paddling it was not an issue.
Not too long ago narrow racing boards were really unstable but now a modern 24” wide board feels like a 26” wide board of 4 years ago. One drawback of raising the nose out of the water is that the board loses 6”-8” of waterline and therefore speed. This shape is good for getting the board to lift out of the water while at speed however it’s inherently unstable (imagine standing up in a canoe).
Other boards in this class are the Starboard All Star, Infinity Blackfish and Naish Maliko. The NSP Puma is what I call a 2nd generation” racing SUP. I’ve seen how Titouan can paddle this 14′ x 23.5” board in the surf and hoped I could do it justice.
Fortunately board makers wised up and started incorporating design features from a downwind/open ocean board and a flatwater board to create a racing SUP that is fast in the open ocean and the flatwater. When I first started SUP racing on a displacement board I would inadvertently go careening towards other racers after being caught up in a wake. The reality is that most people are paddling in mixed conditions where the sharp nose of the board will be pushed around by any kind of chop or swell.
Amazingly light, yet strong, high end eco-friendly performance boards featuring natural Flax rails. A proven brand that offers a huge range of boards for all occasions. The latest generation of NSP foil boards come exclusively with twin track mounts.
Its been 6+ monnths and i’ve gotten the board out to make progress sometimes, gotten depressed at the amount of work needed, and then just put it back and gone and rented a board and sup’d instead. Yes one thing I’ve learned is that in the future, I’ll do the shaping with foam and glass over everything (e.g. entire tail) at the end – rather than assembling bits from various boards. The last thing I would hate to see is a improperly fixed board that snaps while in the water again and you get torn up on the sharp shards of board.
But the money and time spent on the fix could get you a used board that is in surfable condition from the start. If it surfs horrible I’ll have to remove the tail and try to reconstruct the original shape (I have about 50% of the pieces left). Anyone remember the story of that Stretch board that was broken in two, then repaired goofy and the rocker was all cockeyed – and it surfed great, and he ended up making it a “model” – mighta been a hoax, but it was a funny story, and there were pics too, but I can’t find them in the archives right now…
I then said what the heck I want a pintail like on a laird/pearson SUP so I merged in a pintail (actually the front of a broken surfboard). Surfboards in stock to ship same day or next day. This fin is flexible , in most conditions will not break, and less likely to break out your board’s fin box!

This board is a great beginner board with it being very easy balance and paddle. I tried paddle boarding one year ago and within 2 months I bought an 11 foot nsp which I love! Purchase the NSP E2 for my partner for xmass, making sure it would also be a board I could borrow on occasion to hit some waves.

In the end, we decided that I would race on the existing boards for half the season to draw my own conclusions and potentially develop new boards later on. We also checked if I could adapt to the existing boards so as to know if new prototypes were needed. In any case I needed to race on these new boards but I also needed a confidence boost.
With the 14′ boards, it’s a bit different, the races are more specific so I have different kind of boards. Things are easier and clearer now: Alain designs the boards and takes care of us. Travis and I paddle together and we help Alain developing the boards. Besides, NSP and especially their team (Alain Teurquetil who designs the boards, Travis Grant, Vincent Verhoeven, Rico Leroy…) have always been SUP trip partners.

From high performance shortboard shredding to toes over the nose longboard stylee. The brand new Carolina excels in all conditions (beach starts, downwind sections, flat-water sections, surf, headwinds, side-winds and gnarly currents). Because of their improved technical racing skills and overall paddling abilities, they need less comfort in the bumps or waves, which translates to a lot more speed.
The 2019 Puma is a shaped aimed at racers who are comfortable with a narrow shape. Pin-tailed and typically have more nose rocker to suit downwind conditions. The increasing demands of flat-water racers who are eager to race ever more narrower shapes made us create the Ninja in a 21” and 24” width.

There was a sense that I could try pretty much anything I wanted on a wave with this board, and it would do it. Later I surfed the board with just one fin as opposed to the usual three. As a beginning surfer, I felt I had a board that was definitely better than I was. Of course, I was used to surfing a barge, so almost anything might feel that way.
The only thing I’ve had for the surf so far has been an older 11′ NSP, so I was hoping I could up my game some with a smaller board. The stand up paddle boards were great fun and it was a good workout Will be back and highly recommend. Thanks Gordon, my Mum (67 years young) & I loved it. First time on a paddle board for both of us and a great lesson.
I only ride boards 140l and up. They suit me just fine. For surfing, this would be close to perfect. Sup surfing for 7 years, regular surfing for over 30 years.
Finally, nothing to do with durability but the NSP is FCS for quads but the center box is the 2 + 1 or traditional long board fin box so I had to get a special device to insert the nubster fin, seems to work well. Both boards I ride as a quad with a center nubster fin, I really like this setup. Back hand is great, easy to whip the board around (I believe due to the narrower tail) its very user friendly, cutbacks super easy.
I finally went with the NSP DC Wide Cocomat 8’10 x 32 x 148L. After riding my NSP DC Cocomat Sup for the past few months I thought it’d be a good time for a review. Author Topic: NSP DC Wide Cocomat 8’10 Review (Read 4323 times)
