Pyzel Stubby Bastard Review

  • 1

What the Pyzel website says about the Stubby Bastard:

‘The Stubby Bastard provides you with the best of both worlds, an ultra high-performance shortboard and a stubby step-down that is a great addition to any quiver.

We’ve taken JJF’s favorite high-performance shortboard, The Bastard, and squashed it down into a fun, fast, super skatey, all-wave shred sled. We chopped 3 inches off the nose, which pushed the wide point forward, added a little thickness up front and also lowered the entry rocker. Additionally, we filled in the rail to add a little more overall volume and forgiveness. All of the bottom contours (single concave throughout) remain the same.

What you end up with is a fast, loose and responsive board that can fit into tight, curvy little waves, extremely well, but will still hold its speed and flow in weaker, mushy surf.

Ride this board 2-3 inches shorter, ¼ to ½ inch wider, and same thickness or 1/16 more (around the same volume or a bit more) than your regular Bastard shortboard for maximum performance and fun.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Stubby Bastard’s nose width taken 12″ back is 1/4″ wider than the Voodoo Child, the tail width is the same but the stubby has a more rounded squash tail than the harder corners on the Voodoo Child. This trait’s give the Stubby a little more surface area which equates to ease of use and more paddle power.” – REAL Water Sports
