French automaker Peugeot unveils a supercar-like concept surfboard
Surfing’s cool and there’s sincerely no better way to beat the heat wave than, well, riding up a wave on a surfboard. French automaker Peugeot just made the sport of surfing even cooler with its latest concept design, a unique surfboard inspired by the brand’s performance oriented beasts, the 208 GTi, RCZ R and Onyx Concept cars. The surfboard will be unveiled at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed and is the product of the Peugeot Design Lab, Peugeot’s industrial design wing.
The concept surfboard uses the ‘coupe franche’ (clean cut) design theme and is sleek, suave and eye-catching. This one reminded us of an extremely sharp and shiny blade and the front of the surfboard is designed to represent emotions. The back of the surfboard highlights motion and sports integrated sculpted tail fins that have been meticulously drawn out to make the board more agile and responsive. Using carbon fiber for its body while the front is made from wood, this concept surfboard, according to our imagination, also seems inspired by stealth fighter aircrafts.
