Four fins are situated on the underside of the tail, intended to provide “responsive, exhilarating and agile ride quality”

Another design, featuring a part in the rear called "the lion's claw"
The board features a design “inspired by the thrill from driving Peugeot’s latest performance products, most notably the new 208 GTi and also saluting the new RCZ R and exclusive Onyx Concept Car”

If you want something to look elegant, you build it out of wood. If you want it to look cutting-edge, on the other hand, you make it out of carbon fiber. So, what happens when you combine the two materials? Well, you end up with something like Peugeot's one-off GTi Surfboard Concept.
