Peregrine - Named after the fast and powerful falcon that tends to breed on coastal cliffs. This new model connects with the board’s design for fast, powerful surfing and reflects Dane and Courtney’s interest in falconry. Four-channels fuel this all around high performance shortboard suitable for all wave types. Designed for maximum down the line speed, quick transitions, and big rail turns.

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. Center 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. 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 center 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. Ride this board your same height up to a couple inches longer. Also makes a good smaller wave board when ordered shorter and wider. *ALL Peregrines come stock with four channels, and are thruster only.

This video is about Channel Islands "Peregrine" Surfboard Review Ep. 6. In this review Noel Salas rides his custom 5'9 Peregrine in all different size waves and conditions. The Peregrine is the latest board from Channel Islands and it is a Dane Reynolds signature model.

This board is built for speed with a single concave running through the bottom and four channels between the fins to increase drive. Noel talks about the channels and how they feel under his feet and what his expectations were when he first saw the board on the Channel Islands website.

Stay tuned as Noel has mentioned another surfboard review coming on the Peregrine as a small wave high performance board. The DIMS for this small wave board are yet to be revealed but it will be shorter, wider, and thicker. Noel liked this board so much that he wanted to try is on smaller waves because this board is so fast.
