Pyzel Phantom XL Surfboard
The Phantom XL is a Step-down version of John John Florences current favorite model, the Ghost. When the Ghost was first released we had no idea that its unique design would come to be embraced by so many people in so many different types of waves. We kept hearing that it worked best in waves shoulder-high and up. Taking this feedback we made a step-down board that would bring that same feel to the head-high and under days that make up most of our daily surf sessions. The Phantom is a squashed down version of the Ghost, souped up, with added volume, great for your everyday sessions in less than epic conditions. We left the same Ghost rocker but added more single concave to flatten it out through the center, which helps to create speed and flow without taking away from the overall performance or feel of the original design. We added width in the tail and nose to create a more parallel, fuller outline that helps you maintain speed through slower sections and tight turns. The rails are full but not chunky, giving you more floatation and speed without taking away the sensitivity that we all love in our boards. The Phantom is best in waist-high to slightly overhead waves of all types. It’s your daily driver with a high performance edge!
