Pyzel JJF Slab 2.0 Review

What the Pyzel Surfboards site says about the JJF Slab 2.0:

‘The JJF Slab 2.0 is a new, updated version of our Slab. John John has been riding this design for the past year, and even rode one in the 2015 Quiksilver Pro at Snapper, scoring a 9.23 in weak, slow conditions. After hearing his feedback about wanting something that would work better in those kinds of waves we took the Slab and made some significant changes to the bottom contours and rocker. We added a deeper, full concave that starts in the nose and blends into deep double concave through the back 1/3 of the board. We also dropped the tail rocker by a full 1/4 inch and made slight adjustments to the the nose rocker to better suit the forward concave.

The outline is 1/4” wider in the nose, and just under 1/8′ wider through the tail.

All these changes have created a board that has more lift and drive than the original Slab, which allows you to get more speed and flow in smaller, weaker waves.

With a good amount of volume distributed through the whole length of the board you will want to go 1 to 3 inches shorter, 1/4′ to 1/2′ wider, and about the same thickness as your good wave shortboard.’

What people are saying about it:

The JJF Slab 2.0 got its name because it’s a hearty slab of foam shaped into a fierce performance short board. The JJF Slab 2.0 has huge range into overhead surf but is still a blast in smaller conditions.” – Real Watersports

The lower nose rocker makes it quick from take off and very drivey down the line. The added tail rocker lets you use all the extra speed for crazy turns, and keeps it ultra loose and free.” – Surf Station Store

With the wider template and deeper concave, this model provides a ton of drive and lift. This makes for an exceptional smaller wave board yet can still handle wave up to head high and slightly bigger. Surf this board anywhere from 1-3 inches shorter and a touch wider than your standard shortboard.” – Boardcave

The PYZEL JJF SLAB 2.0 is the perfect all rounder for New Zealand conditions. With an added deeper, full concave that starts from the nose blending into a deep double concave through the back 1/3 of the board, PYZEL has created a board that has more lift and drive than the original Slab. This allows you to get more speed and flow in smaller weaker waves, whilst still maintaining hold and control in hollower/bigger waves.” – Freeride Surf Skate
