Nsp Shapers Union Pro 9 - 9'1
The NSP Pro-9 is designed by Carl Schaper as a performance longboard, and it is Bonga Perkins’ favourite 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 manoeuvring 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).
