NSP SUP Foil
Shaped and designed by Dale (DC) Chapman, NSP presents the dedicated and all-new NSP SUP Foil Board, built-in their SLX Carbon technology, which is both lights, stiff and ding-resistant.

The recessed carbon-reinforced deck lowers your center of gravity, adding stability and control. A center ridge just below the EVA deck pad runs conveniently along the entire length of the board allowing you to position yourself on the center of your board without looking down.
A full-length uni-directional carbon stringer on the deck plus a uni-directional carbon stringer on the bottom add strength and foil drive.
Chimed rails on the bottom are very forgiving for those last-minute touchdowns and the smooth rocker through the flat, towards the tail, is combined with a late kick behind the foil. Dale designed this board with a little more volume under the back-foot area – this helps catch bumps earlier for easy lift-off.
Twin track mounting system
The latest generation of NSP foil boards come exclusively with twin-track mounts. Designed to withstand the increased torsional forces the hydrofoils can exert on a board, it is the widest accepted foil system in the industry and NSP’s preferred foil mounting system. For a solid analysis of the advantages a twin-track has over Tuttle boxes and other solutions, check out this thread on Seabreeze.
We initially found the twin-track assembly of the NSP SUP Foil finicky, but with almost all holes resorting to screw slots instead of regular holes in the base, mounting the foil to the board is straightforward and allows for quick tuning adjustments along the rails.
The position of the twin-track and the tuning guide along it is optimized for the NSP Airwave but will accommodate other manufacturer foils as well.
