The NSP Pro-9 is designed by Carl Schaper as a performance longboard, and it is Bonga Perkins’ favorite all-around board. For over 20 years now, former 2-time World Champion Bonga has been riding slight variations of this shape. The most significant improvement is in the Pro-9’s nose riding capability.
Bottom: Soft roll to mid-V to V to double concave
Rider: Intermediate – pro
Wave Type: All conditions
The Pro-9 is a longboard with as much shortboard crammed into it as possible. Carl Schaper will often point out the back-third of the board, as it fits almost perfectly on his 6’2 step up, with the same thickness, tail dimensions and rails. The bottom has a soft roll to V in the middle, running into V with a double concave in the tail. Designed as a single fin or quad fin set-up, the Pro-9 is a low-volume, extremely high-performance longboard, capable of doing it all with tons of maneuvering and solid nose-riding!
The Pro-9 comes in a 4+1 fin configuration enabling you to be creative in your setup as a quad or thruster. NSP positioned the Surf 10 fin box slightly further back, to make it available for a thruster setup. The Pro-9 comes with FTU fin boxes, making it compatible with Futures® Fins (fins not included).
Who’s the CSE Pro-9 for
The Pro-9, designed as a single fin or quad fin set-up, is a low-volume, extremely high-performance longboard, capable of doing it all with tons of maneuvering and solid nose-riding.
The 4oz fin patch, a 6mm wood stringer, bottom carbon stringer and carbon-reinforced tail, give you a durable longboard with great flex and performance, that feels light and responsive.
The consistent feedback is that this board comes together in powerful swell, where bigger riders like to roam and use their strength and weight to full effect. Think serious speed from a longboard.
