Firewire Pyzalien Review

What the Firewire site says about the Pyzalien:

‘The PyzAlien is a great all- around performance board, designed to keep speed and flow in weaker conditions, while feeling lively and loose in all types of waves. The fuller outline, wider tail and slightly wider, flatter nose help to produce speed and drive, and make it a fast, easy paddler.

It has a lot of curve through the tail rocker, and that, combined with the bottoms contours of single/double concave running into a nice bit of VEE off the tail keep snappy yet controlled when you tip it onto the rail. A great board for a wide range of waves and conditions, the PyzAlien feels just as good in waist-high slope as it does in overhead juice and will help you get the most out of your everyday sessions.

For more advanced surfers we recommend you ride this board around your height or 1¹” below.’

What people are saying about it:

I ordered the 5’10 Pyzalien which has 28.4L of Volume. I have surfed it more or less than 10 times and can honestly say that I believe this to be my best Firewire to date.” – user MartyH on firewiresurfboards.com

This board was pretty familiar to me, similar to a lot of boards I ride at home. Paddled really well for how short it was and did what it looks like it does, skating down the line with a lot of speed. It’s got a slight double through the middle and the balance is really good, and I found I could turn it from anywhere on the board, going down the line and off the top or anywhere. It felt really comfortable in the air.” – Andrew on Surfing Life

Our sessions on the Pyzalien around Cape Hatteras consisted of several weeks of sessions in the thigh to shoulder high range, some of them not so juicy and others with a good bit of push. This board paddles well and gets into waves early with noticeable speed thanks to the single concave up front.” – Real Watersports

The PyzAlien is one of the most popular models by Pyzel Surfboards today. It features a wide nose, wide tail outline that allows you to go shorter while still maintaining loads of drive. The rocker is low in front and has a lot of curve running off the tail to keep it feeling snappy and loose, but fast and easy to paddle. The bottom has full concave with VEE off the tail to help get it on rail easier through tight, fast turns. It’s a flat deck and fuller rail keep float to a maximum without taking away performance. This board is a great all around surfboard and also works great when it’s smaller.” – Zak Surfboards

I did some nice round houses and snaps on both quad and thruster. The board just feels so good under foot. I didn’t expect the board to feel so high performance in the way it turned. When you look at it and feel it, it’s a bit of a chunky monkey. When I hold it next to my dom it doesn’t look that much more refined but pyzel really made a winner with this shape because it surfs like a very refined board. It paddles like a champ, catches waves pretty easily and you can just rip on it.” – user saxman1 on firewiresurfboards.com
