What the Pyzel Surfboards site says about The Ghost:
‘A super versatile board, it has become one of JJF’s go-to boards and a favorite for many surfers world-wide.
Originally designed for performance in hollower, more powerful types of waves, The Ghost is also great for reef breaks, or dumpy beachies, and even excels in point waves. A great travel board, The Ghost could be considered a one-board quiver for any surf trip with decent to good waves on the menu.
Based off the Short Cut, The Ghost outline is more refined: it still has the wide point pushed a bit forward of center, but the nose area is kept down and the tail slightly pulled in to help the board fit into a tighter curve.
The thickness is also pushed forward, which helps even more with getting you into waves easily, and we kept the back end and rails thinner to help hold through barrels and turns at speed.
The rocker is med/low through the front half to get you into waves easily and pick up speed quickly. The rear end has plenty of rocker curve for turning control and a snappy responsiveness. Single concave runs through the entire bottom, with a double concave set inside, which equals speed and lift both on a rail and over flat spots while allowing for quick rail-to-rail transitions. The Ghost’s combination of rocker and concave makes for high performance handling through a healthy mix of sensitivity and control.
Depending on what you want to ride it in we recommend you order your Ghosts anywhere from your height to 8″ over, a 1/4″ to 1/2″ wider, and 1/8″ to 3/8″ thicker than your everyday shorty. Comes with a round tail, but we can custom make it with any tail you like.’
