The Skindog Peacemaker surfboard came about when Ben got together with longboarder, shaper and fellow board geek, CJ Nelson who was also keen to design and shape a board with the ability to surf in a traditional style but could also turn on a dime when the tail was buried.
The Peacemaker perfectly bridges the gap between traditional longboarding and the modern high-performance style Ben is known for. Slip the Peacemaker under your arm and it feels like a tradtional longboard with a 50/50 rail but this rail blends from a high apex in the nose and completley transitions seamlessly into a low and hard shortboard style performance rail at the tail. Ben is super proud of the Peacemaker, particularly the way it flows and rolls with no 'clunky' hicups when moving between classic longboard and radical shortboard style manuevres.
The Peacemaker is the board Ben is most proud of, a culmination of 10 years work resulting in a board which levatates like nothing he's ever experienced before. This is the board which ignores all the previous restrictions about what you 'could' and 'couldn't' do in longboard shaping...you can ride the Peacemaker anyway you choose, nose ride or hack some turns from the tail.
This Peacemaker is constructed using 'Thunderbolt Black' technology, a 100% hand layup Carbon Fibre/Fibreglass Lamination which delivers a competition weight and flex surfboard. 'Thunderbolt Black' uses a Fused Cell EPS Foam Blank which incorporates a Carbon Fibre Multi-Component Flex Control System which replaces a traditional wooden stringer which along with the Carbon Fibre/Fibreglass lamination delivers a familiar flex which will remain for the extended lifespan of these durable boards. Thunderbolt Black uses a 6oz + 2oz Carbon Fibre/Fibreglass deck lamination with the same on the bottom. The Fused Cell EPS Foam Blank is wrapped in a Core Shield PVC Shell which affords flexible protection to the EPS core.
Forget the lifeless and corky EPS boards you might of heard about or even owned; these boards couldn't be further from the mass produced characterless Epoxy surfboards 'banged out' in the far east. These boards are 100% hand layups and finished to the very highest standard, and it's worth remembering that the board you buy from us is exactly the same as Skindog is riding!
