The unique shape of the NSP Carolina Pro Carbon Paddleboard was developed over the last year by Alain Teurquetil, Travis Grant, Titouan Puyo, and Marcus Hansen with extensive testing across the world. Titouan has already taken the winning spot at the 2018 Gorge Paddle Challenge on his pre-release Carolina. Clearly, the verdict is in, this board is FAST, and with great performance in flat water, chop, surf, and just about any condition, it surely is the new standard for one board quivers. This board is 24.25″ Wide.
The Carolina’s shape excels in all conditions (beach starts, downwind sections, flat-water sections, surf, headwinds, side-winds, and gnarly currents). The design builds on key features of the Sonic, the best NSP downwinder to date. A reduced rocker line translates into additional efficiency in flatter conditions. With peak performance on flat water, but with a degree of texture, the Carolina is a winning choice for 90% of all racing conditions mother nature can throw at you.
The Carolina truly excels in flat to medium downwind conditions. Its shape also performs well in upwind and crosswind conditions. The Carolina is available in 4 widths with an identical shape and rocker line.
