Pyzel Ghost surfboard 6ft 5 Futures - White
Pyzel's Ghost might be John John's 'go-to hack' but it would make a great daily driver or travel board for any competent shortboarder for decent to very good waves at home and overseas.
Initially designed to tackle powerful and hollow waves, the Ghost has proven to be comfortable in anything from offshore reefs to heavy beachies and point-breaks.
The Ghost was loosely based on the Short Cut with a fine tuned outline but still the wide point forward and a narrower nose and refined tail to help it fit into barrels and carve turns at speed.
The rocker all makes perfect sense, low through the front half for early wave entry and speed and a much more pronounced curve in the tail easing snappy turns and pocket surfing performance. Speed and lift are achieved with a full length single concave with a double concave inside. This combination of rocker and bottom contours results in a high performance surfboard with plenty of sensitivity along with a predictable level of control.
Sizing your Ghost will depend largely on where and in what conditions you want to ride it. Jon Pyzel says you can ride it up to 8" taller than you, up to 1/2" wider and up to 3/8" thicker than your regular shortboard.
Quite possibly the best one-board-quiver for the travelling surfer who is likely to encounter some good quality juice on his travels.
Jon Pyzel was raised in California, Santa Barbara to be exact and first started surfing while in junior high. Jon soon became hooked on surfing and was riding boards shaped by Carpinteria and Rincon Designs legend Matt Moore. Matt put Jon on his team and always took time to explain the finer points of surfboard shaping and surfboard design with Jon often watching-on as Matt shaped his boards.
Fast forward to 1992 and Jon made a permanent move to Oahu’s North Shore where he picked up work repairing boards at Country Surfboards. Jon then started working with master shaper and North Shore legend Jeff Bushman who used Jon as his back-shaper which proved to be the start of a glossy career in surfboard design and shaping.
The list of team riders speaks for itself with some of the greatest surfers of all-time still choosing Pyzel surfboards to compete at the very highest level and take on the worlds most challenging waves:
John John Florence, Kelly Slater, Jack Freestone, Michel Bourez, Koa Rothman, Koa Smith, Matt Archbold, Billy Kemper, Stu Kennedy, Mason Ho, Ross Williams, Fred Pattachia, Sally Fitzgibons, Ryan Hipwood, Billy Kemper, Shane Beschen, Punker Pat Towersy, Timmy Reyes and many many more.

It takes a while to understand the board, but when you do, I've done stuff I wasn't able to before. Currently I'm planning to order an 6'2 Ghost to get that extra beef underneath you. Ow and yes it also goes very well if it's a bit smaller as well.
Definitely recommend it as an travel board, pairing that with one of the ghost family shapes (Phantom, Gremlin) you will get an complete quiver with just 2 boards.
I ride an Ghost at 5'11 x 18.88 x 2.38 27.9L
Phantom at 5'9 x 18.75 x 2.28 26.3L
The 6'2 Ghost will be ordered at 6'2 x 18.75 x 2.5 28+ L
I'm 5'9 73kg

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.

find enclosed a brief first review:
"Custom order Ghost, 6'3 x 20 x 2 3/4, slightly widened template compared to stock dims. Custom spray, grey with partial black rail line in standard
4 OZ PU construction.
Absolute beauty ! 6 weeks return time from first order to my doorstep, pristine as always, no hassle, great advice, and arrived now just in time for summer escape.
Nice rocker, slightly staged with medium entry and tail exit rocker and low to medium in between; nice rails, a bit domed but not super low/sensitive.
Single concave with increasing double just after center.
Looks like a very user friendly board to me, nothing too extreme, very balanced. Nice foam under the chest without ever becoming bulky (unlike other midpoint forward shapes, think a Lost Rock up or Rusty Slayer), still shortboard-like with a little extra.
The rounded pintail with the tail rocker surely won't do it in absolute junk or waves below stomach high, but I am really looking forward to taking it out in better stuff soon, guess it will be great in OH stuff without slowing too much on a softer shoulder.
Overall price was great including the extra spray job and customizing (+10%), so for me there is no reason whatsoever not to go custom if you can wait those 6 weeks.
Will report once I had it in the water, comparing it to my other (mainly
FireWire) boards. Stoked ! "
