What the Pyzel Surfboards site says about the Next Step:
‘The Next Step up from your shortboard, this is a great board to have if you like to surf bigger waves than your shorty can handle, just down the road or on your dream surf trip. It surfs loose, like a shortboard, but has the extra paddle-power and hold you need in solid surf.
Proven worldwide by the world’s best surfers, at places like Pipeline, Mainland Mexico, Tahiti, Fiji and Western Australia.
We recommend that you go anywhere from 2″ to 8″ up from your shortboard, and add at least 1/8″ of thickness (more as you go longer) to help get you in early.
It has a lot of rocker for making step drops, a touch of extra thickness through the nose for paddle power, and refined rails to give you control where you need it most, in the barrel.
Go with the 5-fin option for maximum versatility.
This board is what you need if you want to go bigger!’
What people are saying about it:
“The Next Step has been proven by the world’s best surfers at famed breaks such as Pipeline, Mainland Mexico, Tahiti, Fiji, and Western Australia. This is a great board if you want to have performance in bigger surf- it surfs loose, like a shortboard, and still holds the extra paddle power needed in solid overhead surf. It is designed with a lot of rocker for steep drops, thickness through the nose for paddle power needed to get over the ledge, and refined rails for control in critical barrels.” – Real Watersports
“That should fill the void in step up board in firewire tech!” – user Mathieu on firewiresurfboards.com
“High performance surfing the Pyzel Next Step is fast and offers a little extra foam to get in early and set up for the barrel. The pulled in rounded pin tail makes it great in the pocket and has good hold on the face for hollow waves. If you are going on a surf trip or just want to be prepared for good surf, the Next Step is the model for you.” – Boardcave
“The Next Step is a choice board to have for those days when your regular shortboard starts to get a bit twitchy – ie. bigger, steeper and more powerful waves. It is an easy board to transition onto from your all rounder – still retaining a relatively loose feel but has the extra paddle-power and hold you need in solid surf.” – Zak Surfboards
