The design that JJF rode to his (second) 2017 World Title! The Ghost is a possibly the first truly High Performance board that works great for all levels of surfer and could be considered a one-board quiver for any surf trip with decent to good waves on the menu.

A super versatile board, it has become one of JJF’s favorites for all kinds of surf. A go-to for many surfers around the world. Originally designed for performance in hollower, more powerful types of waves, the Ghost has proven to be great for reef breaks, dumpy beachies, and walling point breaks. The Ghost outline has a refined shape. It still has the wide point pushed a bit forward of center, but the nose is kept down and the tail slightly pulled in to help it fit into a tighter curve.
The thickness is also pushed forward, which helps even more with getting you into waves easily. Jon Pyzel kept the tail and rails thinned out to help hold through barrels and turns at speed. The rocker is med/low through the front half to get you into waves easily and pick up speed quickly. The rear end has plenty of rocker for turning control and a snappy responsiveness. Single concave runs through the entire bottom, with a double concave set inside. This equals speed and lift both on a rail and over flat spots while allowing for quick rail-to-rail transitions.
The Ghost’s combination of rocker and concave makes for high performance handling through a healthy mix of sensitivity and control. Depending on what you want to ride it in we recommend you order your Ghosts anywhere from your height to 8″ over, a 1/4″ to 1/2″ wider, and 1/8″ to 3/8″ thicker than your everyday shorty.
