5 Reasons Why You Should Buy...: NSP Coco Mat Surfboard: "Life Is Better When You Surf!"
Tuesday, Jul 3, 2012 12:00AM
[With 24 hours left before Independence Day officially kicks off, SOHH thinks everyone should prepare to celebrate in style. The beach body and swimsuits are one thing, but you have to have the gear to make it complete. And in this case, we're talking surf boards. Global Surf Industries product manager, Corey (one name like Prince) is here to drop his top five reasons you should buy the NSP Coco Mat Surfboard, and run the waves in style this July 4th.]
1. All Natural Everything
It's a novel use of natural materials. [It uses] coconut husk fibers to take the place of the fiberglass fibers [to] construct of the board. The coconut fibers are a waste product from a local coconut milk plantation, and they're minimally processed. They're washed and laid into the boards by hand.
2. Light As A Feather, Stiff As A Board
Because the boards use coconut husks instead of the glass fibers, the boards come out a lot lighter. So they have the weight of a custom performance board, which is a great improvement from our former process.
The coconut high fibers that are replacing the glass fibers [create a] coconut fibers sandwich [that]is stronger than the glass micro sandwich. Not only is it stronger than what we were doing before, it's stronger than any other similar board on the market, which is a huge advantage. You have a [much] stronger board using natural materials which is super light, and it's all good!
4. Pick & Choose
Every one is different. Because the coconut husk fibers are laid out by hand, every single board turns out different, [and] every one is beautiful in it's own way. So even though we're doing the production process with the material, we end up with a custom look on every board. It's the best of all worlds that we can pull that off.
5. Hang 10
Life is better when you surf! [You have a] healthy lifestyle [with] natural materials and a healthy product. If you're out there and you have a beautiful, natural-materials board, it will help orient your mind towards living a healthy lifestyle and getting the most out of your session everyday.
You Decide. Are you ready to hang 10?
