Already a favorite of John John Florence, Jack Freestone and the rest of the Pyzel team, the Pyzel Shadow is the board that lets you surf how you want in a wide range of wave conditions and size.
Knowing that the Phantom is a great board for many types of conditions, Jon decided to start with there and redesign it as a more refined, high-performance board, while still keeping the added flow and glide that defines the Phantom. The Shadow is designed to give all surfers the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board, but in a sleek, high-performance package.
The Shadow features a high-performance outline, the wide point at centre not behind as is typical of most other HPSBs. We pulled in the nose by almost a ½ inch and added rocker through the last 12 in the nose to keep it freed up through critical turns.
It has a gentle hip for added sensitivity and looseness, and the squash tail is pulled in a touch to tighten the turning radius and improve vertical surfing capability.
Tail rocker and bottom concave remain similar to the Phantom, already proven to work well in everyday conditions around the world.
The thickness flow sets the Shadow apart from other HPSBs, keeping the volume more forward of center but not overly exaggerated. Added foam under the chest area helps add paddle power and gives extra float under your front foot in slower sections, meaning easy speed and flow.
Ride the Shadow your height to an inch over, in your favorite high-performance dimensions.
✪ The Modern foil/outline brings improved stability, paddle power, easy speed/flow in weaker waves.
✪ The rocker and bottom contours combine to generate speed and allow tight, powerful turning in all conditions.
✪ Great for all types of waves from beach breaks to points, reefs and even slabs.
