A full nose outline with lowered profile is ideal for penetrating chop in rough conditions as well as reducing cross-wind interference. Rail edges in the rear of the board are slightly rounded and combined with a relaxed tail rocker for minimal drag.
DISCOVER THE COLLECTION
The Peak series of surf-specific paddleboards are the result of years of testing and refining to find the ideal blend of outline, rocker profile, volume distribution, bottom contour, fin placement and foil. The result is an all-conditions design with the stability needed to make paddling enjoyable without losing true wave performance. With the speed you need on softer open-face waves and the looseness required in steeper, tighter pockets, the Peak series delivers on the promise of maximum fun regardless of the size or shape of the waves you ride.
Featuring light weight carbon innegra construction and available in four sizes for riders of all sizes and skill levels. The Peak Wide series offers a more user-friendly and stable platform while maintaining the surf performance our Peak series is known for.

Instead of simply adding volume and width, which can result in a stable yet unresponsive board, we custom tailored the foil and rocker outline to match the wider templates of these models. This allows the board to still hold rail even in tighter pocket waves and still maintain speed and maneuverability on the open face. Around the base of the obelisk is an array of objects and foliage. At the centre, facing forward, is a heraldic shield.
A red bar emblazoned with a clyster syringe runs across its top.
Beneath the bar, the shield is white and is decorated with a blue spotted band a bend sinister that cuts diagonally across its upper left corner. Aligned with the band's diagonal are three hieroglyphs. The shield is flanked by two clogs, placed on the ground and each pointing outwards.

Immediately to the right of the shield is an open portfolio. A string of small golden bells hangs over its right cover.
On the ground beneath the portfolio is a small sickle, and peeping out from behind its right side is the head of a marotte. The flag pole is capped by a miniature marotte with bells hanging from its lilipres, while another bell hangs from the flag itself.
There is a second smaller pennant to the right of the chain. On the far right of the composition is a roughly-sketched toy windmill on a stick. Leaning at an angle against the left edge of the central heraldic shield is an unidentified oval object with a gold rim - possibly a tambour. Another crudely drawn marotte face emerges from behind it while beneath it on the ground is a large sickle. To the far left of the composition the end of a fasces is visible and, behind it a basket with a woven back-board.
Dunlop wanted Sara to come to London and become an oddity for display. She became an attraction for people from various parts of Europe. During her time with Dunlop and Hendrik Cezar, the campaign against slavery in Britain was in full swing and as a result, the treatment of Baartman was called into question. They produced a document that had allegedly been signed by Sara Baartman and her own testimony which claimed that she was not being mistreated. After four years in London, in September , she was transported from England to France, and upon arrival Hendrik Cezar sold her to Reaux, a man who showcased animals.
He began exhibiting her in a cage alongside a baby rhinoceros. At times Baartman was displayed almost completely naked, wearing little more than a tan loincloth, and she was only allowed that due to her insistence that she cover what was culturally sacred.

Her constant display attracted the attention of George Cuvier, a naturalist. He asked Reaux if he would allow Sara to be studied as a science specimen to which Reaux agreed. As from March Sara was studied by French anatomists, zoologists and physiologists. Cuvier concluded that she was a link between animals and humans. Thus, Sara was used to help emphasise the stereotype that Africans were oversexed and a lesser race. Sara Baartman died in at the age of It is unknown whether she died from alcoholism, smallpox or pneumonia.
Sara “Saartjie” Baartman
Cuvier obtained her remains from local police and dissected her body. The story of Sara Baartman resurfaced in when Stephen Jay Gould, a palaeontologist wrote about her story in his book The Mismeasure of Man where he criticised racial science. The process took eight years, as the French had to draft a carefully worded bill that would not allow other countries to claim treasures taken by the French.
