REAL Review




There’s no need to introduce the Pyzel Ghost. John John Florence and the WSL announcers have made it blatantly obvious that this board rips. The Ghost has a worldwide reputation for performing in sizeable conditions. What most people don’t know is how the Ghost still performs in less than life threatening waves.



The Pyzel Ghost features width and thickness placed perfectly under the chest of the paddling surfer, making it an excellent wave catcher. Where the Ghost differs from many similar boards, is its ability to maintain a shortboard feel through turns. No wonder John John used his Ghost at Margaret River, J-Bay and Lowers. Lowers?! Yes, Lowers. It’s not just a paddle and barrel machine.

What We Like


We’ve had a good amount of time to surf our Pyzel Ghosts 6’3 up to 6’10 in length. We surfed them here in Cape Hatteras, as well as El Salvador, Nicaragua, Fiji and Mexico. We’d have to say what we like the most about the Pyzel Ghost isn’t it’s dominance in better/bigger surf. That performance is a given at this point. The performance that sets this board apart from its competition is the ability to combine wide point forward paddle power and drive, with shortboard turns and smaller wave agility.


Pyzel claims the Ghost is an excellent travel board when striking surf zones with good waves. Even when you go to places like this, you’re always going to get some sub par days. The Ghost isn’t a groveler, but you can definitely surf it in any waves you’d surf your everyday shortboard, and it won’t feel overly stiff. That’s the difference between the Ghost and most other boards that look like it. The Ghost retains its shortboard feel more that the rest, while still reaping the advantages of the strategically placed foam.

Insider Info


We use the Futures JJF fins in our Ghosts for the thruster set up and then add 3.75” or 4.0” QD2 quad trailers 3.75” or 4.0” QD2 quad trailers when converting it to quad set up. The tailpad on the board in the video is the Dakine Bruce Irons 5-piece. This is the pad of choice for rounded pintails you’ll be riding the barrel on, with your foot placed slightly forward.


Trip’s board in this video is a custom at 6’3 x 21” x 3” at 40 liters. Trip is 6’2 x 220 pounds. The rail foil on the Ghost is such that 3” on the stringer translates to way less than that on the rail, so don’t be scared of the thicker measurements of the Ghost. The rails are foiled out and feel way thinner. It’s that hidden volume under the chest and along the stringer that make the Ghost so magic. Stock dims, Trip rides a 6’5 in trunks and 6’6 in full rubber. He’s also had great results in bigger waves with the stock dim 6’10. The volume is so perfectly placed on the Ghost, you don’t need a ton of it to get into most waves. When you do decide to add a second Ghost to your quiver, you’ll normally find skipping a few sizes is what’s needed in order to make a difference when it comes to wave catching ability. Matt Nuzzo’s board in the Fiji photos is a stock dims 6’3. Matt weighs 170 pounds.



Why you want a Pyzel Ghost:


You’re looking for a barrel board, a bigger wave board and a travel board. The Ghost checks all the boxes.


Description


Designed for riding hollow, more powerful types of waves, the Ghost is a great for reef breaks, or pulling into draining, dumpy beachies, and also excels in long,drawn out point waves.
Based off the Short Cut, the Ghost out line is more refined, but still has the wide point pushed a bit forward of center, keeping the nose area down to help fit into a tighter curve.

Pyzel Description:
The Ghost is a board we've been making for team riders and friends for a couple of years now, and finally decided to put it on the ""menu"" after all the good feedback.
Designed for riding hollow, more powerful types of waves, the Ghost is a great for reef breaks, or pulling into draining, dumpy beachies, and also excels in long,drawn out point waves.
Based off the Short Cut, the Ghost out line is more refined, but still has the wide point pushed a bit forward of center, keeping the nose area down to help fit into a tighter curve.
The rocker is med/low thorough the front half to get you into waves easily and pick up speed quickly. The rear end has plenty of curve through it for control and responsiveness. There is single concave through the bottom, with a double concave set inside that which adds up to speed with easy, sensitive control.
The thickness is also pushed forward, which helps even more with getting you into a hollow wave and we kept the back end thinner to help hold through barrels and turns at speed.
The Ghost is a great travel board, and could be considered a one board quiver for any surf trip with good, hollow waves on the menu.
We recommend you order your Ghost anywhere from your height to 6 inches over, a touch wider and 1/8 to 1/4 thicker than your everyday shorty. Comes with a round tail, but we can make you anything you like custom.
