8'0" NSP Shapers Union The Cheater CSE

$780.00 $680.00
The 8'0" Cheater CSE is a Carl Schaper design that would make a solid choice for a single-board quiver. Wide enough, with adequate volume to work well in average surf, a Cheater lights up when the waves have some power.

A solid choice as an all-around board for almost all conditions and abilities, The Cheater is also perfect board to make the transition down with from your regular longboard.


Beautiful outlines combined with relaxed nose rockers, classic roll to V with double concaves in the tail combine to give you that “easy in” with loads of rail-to-rail performance.


Built with NSP’s Shapers Union Custom Surf Epoxy (CSE) lay-up, we came up with a unique glassing schedule for The Cheater, instead of a one-size-fits-all technology. It features a clear UV-stable resin and satin rub finish and combined with a CNC-cut EPS core, laminated with full 6+4oz deck and 6oz bottom, a 4oz fin patch, a 6mm wood stringer, bottom carbon stringer, and carbon-reinforced tail, giving you a mid-length board with great flex and performance that feels light and responsive.


The Cheater comes in a 4+1 fin configuration enabling you to be creative in your set-up as a quad or thruster. NSP positioned the Surf 10 fin box slightly further back to make it available for a thruster setup. Available with FTU fin boxes and compatible with Futures® Fins (fins not included)

Residing on the island of Oahu, Carl Schaper operates from the legendary Sugar Mill, creating longboard shapes, guns and mini mals for surfing royalty from Hawaii and beyond. His knowledge of shaping and construction is an essential part of the Shaper’s Union DNA.
