The Pyzel Phantom was introduced to the Pyzel line-up as a step-down version of John John's go-to Ghost model which has been a huge hit worldwide. It was soon apparent that the Ghost was at it's best when the waves were shoulder high and above and that a 'step-down' version was required for the majority of surfers who aren't blessed with pristine 6ft + conditions when surfing their home breaks.

The Phantom is a scaled down version of the Ghost with a little more foam where you need it making it an ideal shortboard for those average conditions most of us encounter at home and on our travels. The rocker has been left the same but with more single concave to flatten out the centre for extra speed and flow without detracting anything from the original Ghost's performance. Adding more width at the nose and tail effectively straightens out the rail line creating a more parallel and forgiving outline and a board which is faster over flatter and slower sections of the wave. The Phantom has fuller rails than the Ghost, far from "fat" just a little more volume for more buoyancy and speed but still really sensitive.

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.

All you need to do is pump in the details and pay a £100 deposit with the balance due when we send you the board, average build time is 3-4 weeks.

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.

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.
Thanks Guys.

Brilliant board!
Bought this 10 weeks ago from Boardshop.. it’s been making a mockery of me ever since - just sat in the board rack,. Today however, I got to use it at Putsborough in 4-7ft clean decent waves and it is phenomenal and was well worth the wait! I weigh 93kg and got the 6’4- could have prob gone smaller but it picked up everything and absolutely ripped, it’s very nimble and pivots very easily(also pretty forgiving I reckon). I got 4 decent waves within the first 9 mins of being in the water and stayed in for 4.5hours - I just didn’t wanna get out and off the board! So stoked with it- and as usual- also excellent service from Ian.

Happy with it!
Hi Matt, bit of feedback - nipped to Portugal with the phantom for a few days of lefts. Surprised at paddle speed on it - the board moves; and thought the thinned out squash tail gave loads of back foot control. Lots more back foot sensitivity than the merricks I’ve had before actually
Happy with it!

Works much better n overhead waves

Does exactly what it says!!!
I've only surfed this board twice so far, in pretty marginal conditions, but it feels great.
It paddles very well and glides into waves, once you're up to your feet it feels really lively and fast.This board just wants to turn. Boardshop team were spot on about sizing advice!
