This high performance shortboard works fantastically well when the waves have a little more juice. Originally designed to excel in steeper & hollower waves, the Pyzel Ghost has proven to be quite a bit more versatile than you’d think. A board that certainly doesn’t lack drive underfoot, with pretty decent wave catching ability for a board its size. The refined rails and pulled in tail allows you to hold you line with ease, as well as turn with control in steeper parts of the wave at speed.
Coupled with the right fins, the Pyzel Ghost board is heaps of fun to ride in more average conditions as well. Despite its pulled in tail, this board is still loose and maneuverable enough to throw down in less than cranking waves – an addition to you quiver than is certain to get used regularly (& not just on the best days of the year).
This Pyzel Ghost model has become one of JJF’s go-to’s for bigger surf in 2017, riding it to victory at Margaret River and then into the sky with his Bells Alley-Oop. Not just a model for the pros – in the right dimensions, the Ghost is a great board for those of us that are less physically gifted – a board that excels in down the line point waves, reef breaks, or dumpy beachies with a bit of push.
The roll of the deck, refine rail and pulled-in tail means that you can definitely get away with riding this board a fair bit wider, thicker & heavier on volume than other boards. As a general rule, you would probably want to add at least 1-2 liters of flotation in the Pyzel Ghost, depending on the dimensions you ordinarily ride. I personally ride it nearly 1/2″ wider, a 1/4″ thicker, 1.5L more volume and it’s still the most responsive board in my quiver (by far the best paddler as well).
The Pyzel Ghost is already in the quiver of several of our staff members & regulars, by all reports an A+ good wave/step up for Victorian waves or for travel – come in store and check out this model in person or see what we currently have in stock ONLINE.
