Pyzel Sure Thing surfboard 5ft 8 FCS II - White
We love the outline of the Sure Thing; a little extra width under the chest and the really sweet little double bump tail which harkens back to the shortboards of the mid 1980's. The double bump wing allows this more generous outline to release when executing snappy turns and affords extra grip on the wave face. The nose is definitely wider than a regular HPSB so you get all the benefits of early wave entry, lift and drive over mushier sections but its still pulled in enough to maintain a nice curvy outline to better fit the pocket. The mid to low rocker compliments the outline and a significant single concave provides lift and plenty of speed. A slight Vee exits the tail and a pair of accelerator channels have been added to the last 9" of the board for added drive but without the associated "tracking" of longer channels.
The Sure Thing looks like a winner to the guys here at Boardshop; plenty of rippable performance for the advanced surfer and an element of forgiveness for intermediate riders and those who aren't blessed with quality waves on tap. A great grab-and-go shortboard for 90% of the waves most of us encounter at home and on trips overseas.
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:
