Peugeot Design Lab reveals GTi Surfboard Concept

Peugeot Design Lab has produced a unique GTi Surfboard Concept inspired by the design of the 208 GTi. It will be unveiled at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.


The design was inspired by the thrill from driving Peugeot’s latest performance products, most notably the new 208 GT, the new RCZ R and the recent Onyx Concept Car.

The Peugeot Design Lab Surfboard Concept blends the traditional wood of a classic surfboard with the latest carbon fibre technology, a clear hint at the Onyx Concept.

Peugeot Design Lab GTi Surfboard ConceptQuad fins fluidly placed along the edge of the scalped tail are designed to give a responsive, exhilarating and agile ride quality.

The ‘coupe franche’ (clean cut) design separates the two ends of the board, the ‘Motion’ end is a precise, hi-tech shape optimized with a carbon fibre tail piece while the leading edge nose is shaped from natural wood and embellished with the brand signature ‘Peugeot GTi’.

Visitors to the Goodwood Festival of Speed (Thursday 11th – Sunday 14th July) can see the Peugeot Design Lab GTi Surfboard Concept next to the Flowrider Surf Machine on the Peugeot stand.

For who is interested in the surfing experience, there are still some spots available for a free 40-minute session with a surfing professional.
