Product Info

The Pyzel Puerto Padi came about when both Nathan Florence and Billy Kemper asked Pyzel to re-design their favorite Padillacs to better suit the late drops and tricky barrels of Puerto Escondido. 

The Padillac has proven to be one of the best big wave designs of the past decade, but they wanted something that would let them take off later and deeper, and be able to knife under the lip even easier, so Pyzel made some small yet significant changes. The Pyzel team riders have been testing the Puerto Padi for several years already, and their positive feedback made Pyzel decide that it would be a nice addition to the Pyzel gun family for everyone to be able to access.

Product Construction

Polyurethane/Polyester Resin (PU/PE)
A board built in PU/PE means that Pyzel uses a Polyurethane foam blank and they glass it with Polyester resin. This is how the majority of today’s surfboards are built. It is how Pyzel has been making boards for years, and these materials let them make a very stable, strong, consistent, and high-performance board that has the feel that most people are used to.

PU foam is closed celled, meaning it won’t easily soak in water if you ding your board, and that also means that it doesn’t absorb too much resin when getting glassed, keeping your board light. Many surfers prefer the feel of PU/PE boards because that is what they have ridden all their lives, and because they feel really good.

At Pyzel Surfboards, they use only the best foam blanks, highest quality fiberglass and resin, and hire the best craftsmen in the industry. The result is light, tight and bright high performance, reasonable priced boards that look beautiful and work great. Below are the glassing options they offer for PU boards.

Additional Info

”Pyzel

The biggest design changes are mostly evident in the front half of the board. To help the board to fit into stepper drops and thread deep barrels Pyzel narrowed the nose width by ½ an inch, added extra nose rocker and also thinned out the nose by close to ¼ inch. These changes help to free up the whole front end of the board in more critical situations and add sensitivity while still packing a lot of paddle power into a board for its size. The Puerto Padi also features a pulled in baby swallow tail which increases reaction time off the bottom enough to allow for fast adjustments under the lip.

These changes have worked out well enough that Nathan has ridden his Puerto Padis on 2 waves that are considered to be at the top of the list of the very best tube/foamball rides in surfing history - both in Ireland - his 8'5" on the crazy left at Mullaghmore, awarded 'Ride of the Year' at the 2022/23 Big Wave Challenge award ceremony, and the 7'0" on his psycho backdoor of the right at Aileens. These waves along with his recent slab tour also led to Nathan being awarded the 'Surfer of the Year' at the 2022/23 Big Wave Challenge. The rest of the team also loves the PP in long, hollow reef breaks like Cloudbreak.

The next thing you will notice about the Puerto Padi is that Pyzel changed out the stock fin configuration from Quad to Tri-fin. This is something that Nathan felt would give him more control over his speed in the hollow, slabby waves that he had in mind for the board. Many people over the years have asked why Pyzel only offers the Padillac as a quad, and the answer is that the 5 fin set-ups just don't fit into the way they have that board designed. It needs to be a quad OR a tri-fin, but combining both options didn't work out correctly to maximize performance and they always felt the quad had an edge in XXL surf. The same is true for the PP, but they are going Tri-fin as the stock set-up since it is made with a different type of surfing in mind.

Sizing should be similar to the original Padillac, but Pyzel recommends that you ride it a bit more narrow and just a hair thinner or the same thickness.
