The Hot Knife goes exactly as the name describes, like a hot knife through butter. Jay Davies and James developed this model with a few things in mind; A combination of the Peri Peris much-loved bottom contours for smooth transitions and the classic outline from the Stepdown 2 for drive, we also added a hip for release when you need it. We wanted to create an easy to ride, forgiving board for all conditions and we have done just that with the help from one of our bigger team riders - Jay Davies who stands at 62 and weighs 93KG's " this board is always super fast & easy to ride - Jay Davies
-Rocker has an easy entry through the nose into a smooth exit out the tail.
-Bottom contour is from the beloved Peri Peri. A single concave under the chest into a double with a blended vee exiting the tail tip, this creates a super forgiving rail to rail experience. * fin recommendation raked.
-Outline is from the Stepdown 2 with the main feature being a neat hip at the side fin marks. This creates a straighter rail down to the tail for drive. With a slightly wider rounded square tail that tucks in with the hip for control.
-Volume is distributed evenly throughout the board with a medium rail for forgiveness and flow.
