Jon Pyzel has been making many different versions of mid-lengths, but lately he’s been building this one specific design for a bunch of his friends and a few select customers. The response has been great, so they embraced the movement and offered their version of the mid-length to everyone.
Easy paddling, responsive and loose, the Mid Length Crisis has a semi-traditional, wide-point forward outline that is sleek and racey for fast, down-the-line drive, but full bodied enough to provide added stability and glide in weaker, slower waves.
- Length: 7’6″
- Width: 21 3/4″
- Thickness: 3 1/16″
- Volume: 53.40 Liters
- 2 + 1 Fin Set Up (Fins Not Included)
- Foil from nose to tail, with a rolled deck that leaves the meat in the middle of the board to help with paddling and nicely thinned out rails for sensitivity and bite.
- The rocker is a moderate, long, clean curve running from tip to tail without any radical changes or flip.
- Designed for fast paddling and to easily generate speed, carry flow, and smooth turning at any speed. The bottom contours are a mild vee with double concave built into it (the old school term is “Spiral Vee”).
- The board has no problem tipping from rail to rail, making smooth transitions through turns an easy accomplishment for all levels of surfer.
- The fin set-up is 2+1 single box, which gives you options of single fin flowing or the added drive and control of some small side-bites.
- Glassing is 4 bottom and 6+4 deck for a little added weight and strength.
The Mid Length Crisis can be a fresh feeling addition to your quiver, and is a great board to have for those of you who want to try a new approach to the same waves you’ve been surfing forever.
