Pyzel Surfboards Pyzel Shadow 6'1 x 19 1/4 x 2 1/2 Surfboard
The Pyzel Shadow 6'1 Surfboard is designed to give you the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board but in a sleek, modern package. It features Pyzel's version of a high-performance outline, but with the wide point at the center not behind. Pyzel pulled in the nose by almost a ½ inch and added some extra rocker through the last 12 in the nose to keep it free through critical turns. It has a gentle hip for looseness and the squash tail is pulled in to help tighten the turning radius and improve its vertical capabilities. The tail rocker and bottom concave remain nearly identical to the Phantom, which has proven to work really well in everyday conditions in waves around the world. The thickness flow, or foil, is different from most other HPSBs, keeping the volume a little bit in front of the center, but not overly exaggerated. This added foam under the chest area not only helps add paddle power, but it also gives you extra float under your front foot in slower sections which translates to more speed and flow. We recommend riding the Shadow about your height or an inch over, and in your favorite high-performance dimensions.

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.
