NSP Carolina

Price: $2,899 Build: Non-Inflatable
Skill: Advanced Use: Race
Weight: 26.11 lbs Sizes: 14'

About the board:The NSP Carolina is designed and inspired by the infamous Carolina Cup race held every April in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. That being said, the design takes into mind all the conditions that you would experience in the Carolina Cup (downwind, flatwater, surf) and morphs it all into one craft. The well of the board on the deck keeps your legs and feet from getting dragged or pulled back from the bumps that wash over the deck and in the well there are drains for the water that does get in the well. The board has plenty of mounting points that can be used for cameras, GPS or other devices. As expected, the board is quite unstable but very fast as it’s designed for speed. So, if you’re looking for a race board that does well in all conditions that goes fast, this is an awesome choice. Read more HERE.
