Who’s the Butter Knife for?
Riders looking for a mini-mal with a deeper performance envelope are well-advised to check out the Butter Knife. With its classic outlines, perfect performance longboard rockers, and thought-out volumes, the Butter Knife is a shape for riders of all abilities looking for a mid-length that works and performs on smaller days.
CSE is NSP’s high-performance custom surf epoxy lay-up, with a UV-stable resin and satin rub finish.
