The Peacemaker bridges the gap between traditional and performance longboarding. The board’s features show clear characteristics from both ends of the longboarding spectrum. A big concave through the nose running down into the back third of the board, flowing into a V inside a double concave through the tail. The combination results in creating massive lift whilst on the nose and responsive turns whilst tail surfing. The rails are key to this design’s ability to surf this board anyway you like, with a lifted Apex in the rail through the nose gradually blending into a low apex and edge through the tail, giving you great response off the tail when you want it and the feel you expect from a classic traditional design when in trim or up front. The combination of a wider nose, magic rocker and a rounded pin tail gives this model incredible glide and stability on the nose, with the ability to flow through sections from anywhere you stand, making this the most responsive traditional longboard we have developed. “The feeling I got when surfing the 9’6 was so amazing that I decided to make a performance 9’1” and it feels like the board I have always tried to make!” – Ben Skinner
