Who is CJ Nelson?

CJ NELSON

Santa Cruz’s CJ Nelson is arguably one of the best noseriders. He has starred in films such as Sprout, The Present, and A Paradigm Shift, and in particular, his section at Scorpion Bay in Sprout maybe some of the most technical traditional longboarding ever featured on film. He is one of the few noseriders to comfortably switch his stance on the nose and does so with impeccable style.

Although notorious for being a bit of a partier throughout his career, CJ is now vocally sober and strives to set a good example for the young people in his wake. He also aims to equip the next generation with the tools to carry on his legacy of traditional longboarding and has developed a number of signature noserider models. His latest models with Carve Sports are a stellar addition to our lineup here at Hawaiian South Shore.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I've had my eye on this board for a while.  Two of my friends also have a 10' Classic and I found myself always asking for switchboards with them whenever I saw then in the lineup.  So when I saw the Instagram post on this new Classic they go in that was all white with carbon fiber rails, I knew that it was calling me.  The board is so much fun! It is my new go-to board.  It paddles like butter, getting me on the wave way before anyone else which is a bonus in crowded town line ups.  Even though it's so big I can still form turns in critical sections of the wave and hold long noserides in the pocket.  I've never had so many people come up to me inquiring about what I was riding.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I first picked up a 10' CJ Nelson Classic.  The board took a little getting used to it being that it has 50/50 rails on it.  Now I have a blast surfing "retro" with it.  The second board I picked up was a 9'11" Guerrero.  The first time I used it, right of the bat, I was stoked on it!

The staff was pleasant, No pressure at all! Buying boards from Hawaiian South Shore was an awesome and guilt-free experience.  --Glenn 

It was a split-second decision.  Once Dave took out the board and placed it on the ground.  I knew I had to get it, no doubt.  I have been riding the board for about a month and a half.  The board is easy to paddle, turns on a dime and stable in the section for noserides. I tried it with a hatchet fin but it as a little stiff and the board felt slow.  Change to the CH pivot fin and the board works like a dream.  Wasn't expecting to buy a board that day but I am glad I did :)
