Pyzel Surfboards Pyzel Phantom 5'11 x 19 3/4 x 2 1/2 Surfboard - 3 Fin
The Pyzel Phantom 5'11 Surfboard is the middle child in the Ghost Family, a step-down version of John John Florence's current favorite model designed to be your go-to board for everyday conditions. When Pyzel first brought out the Ghost they had no idea that its unique design would come to be embraced by so many people in so many different types of waves. However, the one bit of feedback about the Phantom is that it works best in waves shoulder-high and up, so they looked at making a step-down board that would bring that same feel to the head-high and under days that make up most of our daily surf sessions.
The Phantom is a Ghost squashed down, souped up, and with added volume: great for your everyday sessions in less than epic conditions. It has a Ghost rocker with an added single concave to flatten it out through the center, helping to create speed and flow without taking away from the overall performance or feel of the original design. The added width in the tail and nose create a more parallel, fuller outline that helps keep the speed up through slower sections and tight turns. The rails are full but not chunky, giving you more floatation and speed without taking away the sensitivity that we all love in our boards. Best in waist-high to overhead waves of all types, the Phantom is your daily driver with a high-performance edge.
Ride it around your height, a touch wider and about the same thickness as your Ghost

Building a board in PU/PE means using a Polyurethane foam blank and glassing it with polyester resin. This is how the majority of today’s surfboards are built. It is not a new way to make a board, but the materials are very stable, strong, consistent, and easy to work with. 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.
