[ The Peregrine / Step Down ]

The Peregrine or Step Down is a high performance short board designed 1" to 2" shorter than a pure short board. This design offers short board performance in smaller or marginal waves. These shapes evolved from surfers looking for a shorter - tighter turning radius to maximize performance in these conditions. The shorter rail line makes it an excellent design for vertical maneuvers. Of note is the ability of this shorter design to perform in good and excellent waves as well. The Peregrine has become a go to board for performance surfing. Design features - Rockers: Speed Boxes designed for all conditions, Continuous designed primarily for for quality waves, and Relaxed designed for marginal to moderate waves. Profiles: Moderate foil with sufficient volume throughout to support the surfer in marginal conditions yet foiled enough for complete control. Outlines: Any one of the classic configurations - squash, thumb, swallow, and round pin. Bottom Contours: Shallow vee in entry, moderate single concave begins between entry and wide point, reaches maximum depth near the leading edge of rail fins, and fading through the tail with optional single to double concave from wide point through the tail. The single has a little more lift and speed and the single to double has a little more control. Rails: Marginally fuller than the rails of the Redtail Pocket Rocket still varying with surfer's size and technique - fuller rails for technique that generates greater displacement - thinner rails for a more light footed technique.
