CJ Nelson Designs Surfboard Reviews
From Hawaiian South Shore Customers!
Thank you all for your reviews!
I've had my eye on htis board for a while. Two of my friends also have a 10' Classic and I found myself always asking to switch boards with them whenever I saw then in the lineup. So when I saw the Intragram 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 thought 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. --Talia
I first picked up a 10' CJ Nelson Classic. The board took a little getting use 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 an a half. The board is easy to paddle, turns on a dime and stable in the section for noserides. Tried it with a hatchet fin but itw 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 :) --Cherie
Mahalo to David & the Hawaiian South Shore crew!! You guys helped me choose an awesome CJ Nelson longboard and provided incredible service to me! --Mitch
9'3 CJ Nelson Colapintail - Walked into HSS looking at the CJ Nelson Guerrero but ended up walking out with a Colapintail. The color and lines of the board instantly caught y eye. Do I like the board? Absolutely love it! I took her out to Pops & Threes on a waist high and above day. The board performed matched with a CJ Nelson Powerflex fin. Nice and easy on the bottom turn and it loves to surf up and dow tne wave face. The board also nose rides like a champ!! This will be my go to board on larger days! Thank you Dave and Brett! HSS is my go to Surf Boutique on island! --CJ
WOW! I walked into HSS to scoop up a 9'6" CJ Nelson Designs Guererro and it just so happened that you guys just got a used one in! So no brainer... I got myself a Red 9'6" Guererro. This board is magic coupled with a flying diamond power flex fin. All the way up in the fin box. This board glides in early, turn on a dime and stays perched in the critical section of the wave. Thunderbolt technology is the real deal!! Xeon fiber - glass gives you the best of both worlds, traditional feel and high persformance! TRY ONE OUT -- Jesse
9'5" CJ Nelson Classic - I wanted a board with solid nose riding capability and able to catch waves on smaller days. The CJ Nelson Classic fit the bill. The Classic does really well on windy days she cuts through the chop with ease. I paired the Classisc with a Cali Style Pivot fin. Easy to turn and forgiving. Best nose rider in my quiver. Such a fun board! The performance and stability allows me to work on those stylish classic longboard techniques. I also ordered this board and it came in two days later just in time for the swell. Mahalo Brett and Dave!!! Brett and Dave also got the man CJ Nelson himself to sign my boards I'm beyond stoked!!! I'm looking forward to my next board purchase! Thank you! --CJ
