CJ Nelson aims to equip the next generation with the tools to carry on his legacy of traditional longboarding and has developed a number of signature nose rider models. His latest models with Carve Sports are a stellar addition to our lineup here at Hawaiian South Shore.

Built with the traditional noserider in mind, these boards blend proven shapes from the 60s with modern twists that open up a whole new world of potential on the nose. These boards are an updated take on the boards that CJ grew up surfing. (His dad’s vintage logs are what taught him the value of style and glide.) Leading the logging revolution in the Pleasure Point area, a region that is known for drugs and hard living, CJ is now a vocal advocate of meditation, mindfulness, and a healthy diet. He also maintains a home in Mexico, where he regularly logs some of the world’s best point breaks.

CJ NELSON SURFBOARDS HAWAIIAN SOUTH SHORE

The CJ models that we carry feature proven shapes blended with top-quality glassing to make them the obvious go-to log for anyone serious about noseriding. But the boards also have versatility built into them so that they can do more than simply go straight. They aren’t high-performance longboards, but they can be turned and nose-ridden with equal comfort, and are perfect for lined-up, hollow, waist-to chest-high point breaks. If you are looking to take your noseriding and traditional longboarding game to the next level, you would do well to learn from the best. Watch CJ ride the nose, and then pick up one of his boards. You’ll glean years of experience from him through the shapes that he has designed and chooses to ride. CJ is one of the best for a reason, and this shows in his board choice as much as it does in the way he perches on the front of the board, right in the first 30 inches.
