Former world champion, craftsman, designer and shaper are just a few of the accolades behind the name Nicki Carstens.
When it comes to shaping craft that is intricate, detailed and multi-angled look no further than founder of Carstens Free design, Nicki who has been shaping and designing boards for over 25 years.
Introducing the stub nose 3D SUP, more than just a conventional board with a cut off nose, the 3D is DIGITALLY, DESIGNED, DEVELOPED – meaning that the board you will ride has elements that have been designed on computer for accuracy, hand shaped and then tested to ensure hours of radical fun.
As the name implies, the 3D SUP has taken board design from conventional 2D to 3D as each 3D SUP offers added features, 5 fin option so can be used as thruster or quad, chimed-channel nose design which offers clean water entry. Bottom shape starts with a single concave for early planing, which flows into a deep double concave that allows continued speed on wave face.
The stub nose design allows for a shorter board to be ridden while adding extra stability. The straighter rail curve offers extra speed with a “pocket-rocket” feel.

The 3D SUP is not just another “square nose” board but rather a pocket rocket board, with single concave into a double for quick acceleration, beveled nose channel to allow clean water flow off the nose and swallow tail for sharp turning aspects.
As the name implies the 3D incorporates 3 dimensional features that enhance the performance, stability and speed.
