When Pyzel first brought out the Ghost they had no idea that it’s unique design would become so popular for use in so many different types of waves. However, the general consensus was that it performed at it’s best in over 3-4ft decent waves. The next logical model was making a step-down board that would bring that same feel to the weaker, smaller days.. So essentially what makes up the majority of most people’s daily surf sessions.
The Pyzel Phantom Shortboard is a Ghost squashed down with added volume. Great for your everyday sessions in less than epic conditions. They have left the same Ghost, medium entry rocker and added more single concave to flatten it out through the center. Then transitioning it to a double concave through to the squash tail. This helps create speed and flow without taking away from the overall performance or feel of the original advanced level design.
The added width in the tail and nose create a more parallel, fuller outline that helps keep speed up through slower sections and tight turns. The rails are full but not chunky. This gives you more flotation and speed, without taking away the sensitivity that we all love in our everyday boards.
