3CSUP PROJECT / FAQ


Are 3CSup 100% eco- friendly?
The cardboard core technique reduces drastically the footprint of the object. If you consider that the core of a board makes up about 95% of the volume of the object you will understand the innovation in terms of sustainability.

Is the cardboard core waterproof?
Our cardboard core is water resistant. We use 3mm recycled cardboard covered by a thin layer of water-based coating that protects the core from humidity and gets it water resistant.

In the event of damage can I fix my board?
Your cardboard core is protected from humidity and water. So if some water gets inside the board due to an impact you have just to open up the vent system and evacuate. To avoid a potential condensation due to residual humidity just open the vent system and proceed with natural ventilation. You can get it faster using a common hoover. After this you can fix the damage part as usual. So no problem and just do it!

Is it possible to customize the pattern of the core?
Yes you can. Currently three kind of pattern are available. You have to study which one you prefer. Any pattern has different performance also for the final weight of the board. We push a lot in the research of design the best pattern according with the performance and loads. So just ask for custom ideas and write at customboard@nerdfuture.com

Does the cardboard core technologies get the boards superlight?
Contrary to popular belief, a common cardboard core is not super light if you don’t design it well. A common cardboard core can have more or less the same weight than conventional, maybe 10%-30% heavier. Nerd 3CSup is different from others project about cardboard core because we optimized shapes and material so much that we have reduced the weight of the core approximately of 50%. So our boards are light!

Can I send you my shape design to have a board built with a cardboard core?
Yes you can. We will start a process together because maybe we have to adapt the shape to the constraints of cardboard core technology. But at the end it will be a fu****g satisfaction!!

Which are the performance of Nerd 3CSup?
Light and super clear, all the shapes of Nerd 3CSup have an excellent manoeuvrability among the waves and high stability. They are not super fast boards but they are extremely agile and their flexibility will surprise you. Our core pattern is studied to guarantee the necessary rigidity on the wave without taking off the shape’s ductility when manoeuvring.

Additional information
Our project is young. We’ve started to produce our pilot production in September 2016. So currently the shapes in operation would only be about year old. In terms of resistance to stress we’re recording data. However in terms of performance (flotation, waterlines, mechanical proprieties exc.) we have already excellent data. We tested the boards in different environment and in several conditions (also medium-size waves) and the answer of our three different shapes has been always good. If you are a pro and you are interested in test 3CSup we will glad to make available our shapes and listen your feedback. Write us a testride@nerdfuture.com
