The PU Magnet is a funboard shape for weekend warriors appreciating PU and glass construction and vintage surfing style in general.
Based on our best-selling funboard shape, the PU Magnet benefits from a PU (polyurethane) core, adding some weight that translates to more hold in hollow waves, and a more composed riding character.
Bottom: Single to V
Ideal waves: 1-6ft

PU Magnet Design:
A stunning combination of style and performance, the Magnet is one of the most popular shapes in the NSP range, built in classic PU & glass construction, available in clear coat, sky blue or Sunburst design.
The 6mm stringer doesn’t just look pleasing, it also improves the strength and rigidity of the board. A satin rub finish differentiates its look from more conventional designs.
A semi-rounded nose with a low entry rocker design puts more volume upfront, giving you more paddle power to catch waves early and easily.
The domed deck profile allows a forgiving but sensitive rail feel, while the rounded pintail is pulled in, adding control in bottom turns and cutbacks. The concave bottom creates a fast water transition through to the tail – providing balance and control in a range of conditions.
PU Magnet FIN CLUSTER & CONSTRUCTION
In addition to the 8″ single fin that the Magnet comes out-of-the-box with, the five-fin cluster offers plenty of tuning options. Combine the 8” center fin with side bites or go quad on average-to-smaller days. Keep the thruster setup for the bigger days when conditions allow for committed turns.
