What the Pyzel Surfboards site says about the Bastard:
‘Our most popular shorty and the board that JJF rides in most conditions and comps (he finished 2nd at Trestles, 1st in France and 1st at Volcom Pipe 2015, all riding his Bastard). This is obviously a very versatile board.
We took some design aspects of our two shortboards, the Flash and Pinky, and blended them to create the Bastard.
It has a touch more rocker than the Flash for a snappier feel, but still keeps it’s drive and speed through flatter sections. Single concave throughout adds to the speed and the subtle hip in the tail makes it easy to redirect. The tail is a touch more pulled in, giving bite and drive through turns, and we flattened out the deck to re-position the volume for a lively feel.
This board works great for big carves in powerful waves, and still feels great in weaker surf. A great board for everyday sessions in all kinds of waves.’
What people are saying about it:
“The single concave throughout gives this board speed, while still keeping drive and speed through the flat, weaker sections. The drawn in tail gives you responsiveness and a lively feel through turns, especially in bigger surf.” – Real Watersports
“I was really keen to try this board and after doing so I can really understand how JJ surfs. It’s a really smooth-feeling board. It doesn’t have any weird kinks or anything. Good release.” – Matt on Surfing Life
“The Bastard loves to be put on rail and excels when being driven through a massive arching turn in the pocket, yet performs with speed and spice when conditions are smaller and weaker.” – Surf Dome
“I’m loving the looks feel and performance of this board it’s always been a dream for me to own it and now I do I love it, thanks surfs one for delivering in great condition and quickly, thanks ouzel for designing it and thanks john John for showing me how to surf it, cheers!” – user Carlos56 on Surf Dome
