Pyzel Ghost Surfboard

3 reviews
The Pyzel Ghost surfboard requires very little introduction since surfing’s golden boy John John Florence piloted one to his second world title and made it his go-to performance step-up board for the juicier, solid conditions he encounters on the tour. The Ghost was one of the best selling surfboards in 2017.

From the shaper - John Pyzel

This is the shortboard I (Jon Pyzel) designed with JJF, the surfboard he rode to his second world title in 2017! The Ghost is quite possibly one of the first high performance surfboards that can work for all levels of surfer and would be a good option for someone who only wanted to travel with one board if the waves were going to be of decent quality.

The Pyzel Ghost Family

Matt breaks down the Ghost Family of the Pyzel 2022 Range.

The Pyzel Ghost family of surfboards would make a comprehensive quiver.

Who's Who?

The Pyzel Ghost family of surfboards would make a comprehensive quiver. The legendary Ghost was the first and is probably best known as John John’s career defining shortboard, and the board he rode to his 2017 world title. Next in line is the middle sibling, the Phantom which came about when it was apparent that the Ghost really excelled in shoulder high and above waves and a “step-down” version would be advantageous. Last but not least is the Gremlin; a “chunked-up” small wave wonder stick.

The Ghost

The Pyzel Ghost is a very adaptable shortboard and will thrive in anything from chest high beach breaks right up to double overhead barrelling reefs depending on how you size it. The Ghost can be ridden up to 8” longer and 1/4 to 1/2” wider and 1/8 to 3/8” thicker than your regular shortboard.

The Phantom

The Pyzel Phantom is a brilliant “easy riding” version of the Ghost with a little more volume, a fuller outline with more parallel rails to help maintain speed in less than premium conditions. A great daily driver for the majority of average surfers in average conditions.

The Gremlin

The Gremlin still has the same Ghost/Phantom DNA running through it but with a wider outline and lower entry rocker to keep it flowing in slower weaker waves. The Gremlin would also make the ideal next-step or first shortboard for anyone stepping off their larger mini-mal or funboard etc.

Mint Board!
I ordered a custom dims 6’2” x 19 1/2” x 2 5/8. Came in at around 31.7 liters. I weight 90kg without a wettie and I’m 6’2.

First, the service was very good. Fast replies to emails and everything just went through like clockwork.

Only had a few sessions on it but first impression was that it was a lot more user friendly than I was expecting. Surfed it in chest to head high beach break semi clean waves. All the volume up front gets you in early and if you like boards with a pulled in tail then you’ll love this. Holds in through long drawn-out turns but has snap and pivot for the tighter sections.
I went full JJF fanboy mode and rode the Futures JJF Techflex Large (thruster).
This board just feels solid and the sweet spot easy to find and I think it has a lot more to give especially in bigger better waves.
So far I can’t find any faults so it gets 5 stars from me.

Best board I have ever had
The Ghost is the best board I have ever owned. It catches the bigger stuff with such ease and feels rock solid. It even works in smaller stuff too and is a great board to have in your travel quiver. You won’t need much else.

Great board and service
After a lot of deliberation between different boards I got some really good advice from Ian. Talked through various options and now I've got the board I can say he got it spot on. I ordered a custom board, and Ian made sure it was ready for me to pick up from Ocean Magic in time for a trip I had down that way.
