The NSP Protech Fish is a new shape for 2018. Stable and wide, with a flatter rocker – These are fast, fun and very affordable. The perfect board for ripping in all conditions.
✓ Wide nose creates more volume for added buoyancy providing more stability, faster paddling, and easy entry into the smallest waves with quick acceleration.
✓ Rocker and rail outline are combined with single to double concave bottom, with vee through the tail incorporated into a wide swallow tail.
✓ The slight hip behind the front fins reduces the area under the back foot creating a pivot point for snappy turns. Boxy and full rails also add to the overall volume and forgiving nature of this model.
✓ The Fish performance delivers traction, down the line speed and maximum drive over the flattest of sections.
✓ A tri-fin thruster setup guarantees speed and liveliness, with enough hold to ride out a line.
✓ 3x M7 FCS fins included

NSP was born in 2001 from the vision of Bruce "Buzz" Hansen, a life-long surfer, skater and allround waterman. Buzz had an epiphany for producing affordable, versatile, durable and great performing surfboards. Buzz realized there were everyday surfers that needed an affordable board that performed in Hawaii, yet they didn’t require “custom” or specialized competition or extreme surf boards. His dream was a utilitarian surfboard that could ride in the back of the pick-up truck to the beach, be left in the sun all-day or loaned to a friend without fear of damage - of course it had to surf good enough to give to his long-time surfing buddies, neighbours and friends and save face.
The code name while in development was “New Surf Project”. Somehow the name stuck and “NSP” was established. The word “New” reflected the brands identity, using new technologies that were new to the market and a new way of thinking about the surf industry.
NSP began selling in Hawaii and Australia in 2002 with immediate success making surfing more accessible. In 2007 NSP was one of the first brands to produce SUPs based on the brand’s original concept of performance and value. Today NSP has become one of the world’s largest brands in recreational surfing and stand-up paddleboards, introducing new participants, young and old, who in turn have introduced their friends and family to the joy and freedom of the sport and brand.
Over 16 years hundreds of thousands of boards have passed, yet our core values haven’t changed. NSP remains true to the original vision of the great performing, affordable, durable surf or paddleboard that allows everyone to surf.
