Black Friday Is Coming

Black Friday board sale

This year’s Black Friday sale falls on the 25th of November and will be running over the weekend ending on Monday 28th of November. If the previous Black Fridays have taught us anything, it’s that you’re much safer shopping online where you will not be trampled by an angry mob. So put your feet up and grab a bargain on a brand new surfboard from the safety of your own home.

Christmas Shopping

Christmas is just around the corner so why not make a head start on your Christmas shopping. Coincidentally we have just received a new delivery of Patagonia clothing just in time for the coming winter.

In the meantime enjoy some action from last year’s Black Friday pipeline sessions.

Peregrine – CI Surfboards

CI Surfboards new model the Peregrine has turned lots of heads in DTL recently and for good reason. With a sleek out-line and channels through the tail, the Peregrine is all about down the line speed, quick transitions and big rail turns. It is a versatile board and is suited to all wave types. Nimble enough for a beach break yet solid enough under foot to handle steeper reef or point waves.

CI Peregrine
The Peregrine is a mighty fine bird… Dynamically fast with lightning speed and agility. The same could be said for the Peregrine surfboard.

This is what CI Surfboards have to say about The Peregrine

The Peregrine has a low entry rocker that’s accelerated through the back. The rail rocker is low but with ample break around the front fins and staged by the exit of the channels, creating extreme release near the trailing fin and off the tail. Centre rocker is straighter and fast with the effect being exaggerated by the deep channels running out the back. The channels sit within a generous single concave that runs the length of the board and goes flat at the tail block. The flat deck provides positive flex patterns, volume distribution and feel under the feet.

The Peregrine should be ordered an 1/8th of an inch thinner than a customer’s usual thickness. (i.e. If the customer usually rides a board with a 2 1/2 centre thickness, they should order the Peregrine at 2 3/8 and can expect it to have the same general rail thickness, feel and flotation as a board that is 2 1/2). Rails are round, medium to full. Designed to work best in waist to ceiling high surf. The Peregrine also makes a good small wave board if ordered shorter and wider!

  • Ideal wave type: Point, reef or beach breaks – Medium steep to barreling.
  • Wave size: Waist to ceiling high.
  • Approach: Powerful, carving.
  • Skill level: Intermediate/advanced.
  • Foil/Rails: Medium/Full.
  • Entry rocker: Relaxed.
  • Exit rocker: Medium to aggressive.
  • Outline: Straight.
