CJ NELSON

Who is CJ Nelson?

CJ NELSON

Santa Cruz’s CJ Nelson is arguably one of the best nose riders. 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.

CJ NELSON Surfboard Models

NEO CLASSIC

This board is a workhorse for the traditional longboarder. A “Classic” California inspired template, designed by CJ and Ryan, to be extremely neutral in its intention. Very fast and loose off the tail and stable on the nose. The Classic has a very even rocker profile with a slight step deck and tail which allows this board to flow and maneuver with ease while remaining a versatile nose rider. Absolutely no hang-ups anywhere. A dynamic rolled bottom in the nose blending to a modern down rail in the tail allows you to push through and drive out of your bottom turns and carry speed through your cutbacks. The Classic is a traditional longboard with modern touches that makes this one of the easiest longboards to connect with. 100% control and responsiveness at all times. A perfect longboard to take anywhere and ride with confidence. This is a favorite of the whole team.

HAVEN

The Haven by Wayne Rich X CJ Nelson knows no boundaries. Combining everything Wayne and CJ know about longboarding, we blended performance rails with rockers of tomorrow, added a wide nose with dramatic noseriding concave, and put some aggressive edge in the tail. The result is truly special and unique. A board that does it all, in nearly every condition.  This board tip rides with the best of them and slices turn on a dime. This is one of the most unique and user-friendly longboards in the world today. Take it anywhere and ride it with confidence.

PARALLAX

The PARALLAX is a speed shape performance longboard. If turning is your thing you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better maneuvering longboard anywhere.

OUTLIER

One of the most functional designs of the “shortboard revolution” re-worked by CJ and Ryan. A true speed hull that puts feel and rider enjoyment first, this board is a life changer. Digging into the history books, referencing MP, Nat and all of the transition era sliders we picked up where they left off and applied our modern knowledge to make this functional beauty. If you’re looking to size down from your longboard or looking for a one board quiver to travel the world with, there’s not a better surfboard to fulfill your needs.

SPROUT

CJ’s favorite surfboard of all time. Originally shaped by Washington’s Dane Purlee and now resurrected and tweaked by Californian shaper Ryan Engle. This is an updated replica of the board CJ rode in Thomas Campbell’s movie “the Sprout”. Without a doubt, the best nose riding surfboard CJ has ever owned. Regarded by many as the best noserider of all time, this board was designed to take to Malibu or Scorpion bay and hang ten. A must-have for any point break, tip dwelling, longboard enthusiast.

GUERRERO

“In designing and shaping this board I wanted to bring a totally fresh approach to what CJ has been riding.  After making a few Nausea model’s in various sizes and with a few tweaks I had a solid idea what I wanted to do with this concept. The Guerrero model is something fresh and exciting.  Starting with the rocker used in the Dead Kooks Nausea model we added some extra curve in the front 18 inches giving a nice clean and consistent rocker curve improving hold on the nose, stable and fast trim from a forward position and precise control and drive from the rear.  The outline is a nod to some late 60’s Australian favorites, pulling in the ears out front and carrying width just behind center providing a nice hip to work from.  There is a pretty serious amount of concave that runs through the front third of the board, narrow and blended into the belly as it runs out into the rest of the board while not altering the rail line. The rails are a noticeably a little lower more a 60/40 running into a paneled V section leading into the fin with a dash of edge for control, direct feel underfoot and a little flair.” – Eden Saul

Reviews from our Customers

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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 :)
