From the shaper - John Pyzel

“The Phantom is the middle child in the Ghost Family, a step-down version of John John Florence's current favourite model designed to be your go-to board for everyday conditions. Best in waist-high to overhead waves of all types, your daily driver with a high performance edge. Ride it around your height, a touch wider and about the same thickness as your Ghost” - Jon Pyzel

The Pyzel Ghost Family

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

What do we think of the Pyzel Phantom?

Sizing the adaptable Phantom

The Phantom can be used by surfers of differing abilities, it just depends how it’s sized. A decent shortboard surfer will look for the perfect balance of length and volume; for example - a 70kg 6’ rider should look at the 5’11 or 6’0, roughly 30 to 33 litres to get the best from the board and their skill set.

An intermediate surfer may need to add a little length and a couple of litres volume for a more comfortable and forgiving everyday shortboard.

Home and away

The Pyzel Phantom makes a great grab-and-go board for home and alongside the Pyzel Gremlin and Ghost models would make the perfect travel quiver. Score yourself an Ocean & Earth Triple Coffin and load it with the Ghost Family. John John’s Ghost will thrive in all but the monster stuff where a step-up might be required; the Phantom will be your go-to for the average days and the Gremlin will squeeze the maximum amount of fun from anything left over.

Fins and setup

The Phantom is designed and works best as a thruster, delivering control and consistency. This setup allows the board to perform in a wide range of conditions. A balanced fin template works best for a nice predictable feel with the ability to release the fins when required. We love the Futures Pyzel Control Series or the FCS II Performer in Performance Core tech. Both work in anything from waist high to well overhead.

Great everyday Board!
Just spent a week surfing with the Phantom in great waves in Fuerte. Really enjoyed the board, good paddle speed, turns really nicely, just feels right. A great board for waist to well overhead waves.

Great board and advise
Been struggling for a while to get my board selection right, I emailed the board shop and they gave me plenty of advise! I took this out in 2-3 feet waves the other day and it worked very well, a lot of speed and drive. Very sensitive for sharpe turns so very excited to use this on trips in overhead surf. Came in the post very well packaged.
