Pyzel Gremlin XL
If you love the feel of your Ghost and Phantom, but want a shorter, chunkier board for smaller surf the Pyzel Gremlin XL is the board you are going to love! It’s the Step-Down cousin to the Phantom, with lots of extra volume packed into a shorter, wider, flatter rockered package designed for quick acceleration, easily sustained speed and great paddle power. The Gremlin was made to get you excited about surfing on the weaker days, and also to give you the kind of fun that will get you fired up in any kind of surf.
- 6’6″ x 21 1/2″ x 2 15/16″ – 45.60L
- 6’8″ x 21 3/4″ x 3 1/16″ – 48.8L
- 5 Fin Futures Set Up
- Size Recommendation – Higher level surfers will want to ride the Pyzel Gremlin as much as 4-6 inches below their height. A more intermediate level surfer will want to stick to something around their height.
- Skill Level – Intermediate
The wider outline on the Pyzel Gremlin XL is complimented by a low entry rocker for easy speed and glide through the weakest, slowest sections. Pyzel have left some curve through the tail rocker to keep it performance oriented and add to maneuverability. The bottom runs from single to double concave, with a nice bit of Vee running of the tail.
This makes it a board that paddles easy, gets up and goes fast, and still has a snappy, drivey, high-performance feel to get you the most out of every wave you catch. Higher level surfers will want to ride this board as much as 4-6 inches below their height (and find that it actually has a high-performance side to it). A more intermediate level surfer will want to stick to something around their height.
It’s also a great transitional board for the more beginner surfer who is ready to take the step away from their longboard (or whatever they have been riding) to a more fun, floaty and performance orientated design! Whatever length suits you, it is meant to be ridden wider and thicker then your shortboard.
