What the Pyzel Surfboards site says about The Slab:
‘John John Florence came up with the idea for this design, and we refined it into his favorite step-down. We took our JPX, chopped 3” off nose and added some extra tail rocker.
The result is a fuller nose, forward wide point, super high performance board.
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.
The wider nose and stubby outline make it a super stable board for landing big airs. Order this one about 3” shorter, and 1/4” to 1/2” inch wider than your regular shortboard, same thickness.’
What people are saying about it:
“Only board I surf now on the south shore of Oahu.” – Abe Miller on YouTube
“Paddles like a dream and drops in on steep sections. Fast and responsive.” – user Jareth on Boardcave
“Has some rocker in the front and a good amount through out the back. Rode it with Futures AM2’s though I am gonna go with the new JJF’s Futures next time. It paddled very well and I was able to get in the wave very consistently, whether I wanted to be early or do a late take off. Definitely going to need a wave with some push, despite being listed as a stubby you are gonna need a decent wave to get the most out of it.” – user docdasuess on Surfer Mag
“The lower nose rocker gives the Pyzel Slab heaps of speed early in the take off and when driving down the line. An easy nose rocker and extra tail rocker makes the board speedy but provides the ability to easily release it in the pocket for high performance surfing. If you’re having trouble landing airs, the wider nose and fat outline make it super stable for landing those massive punts.” – Boardcave
“This is a great performance board of excellent quality. I did a lot of research before I picked this board and dimensions and I must say that I am really happy. It simply delivers. A really quick board which can drive even out of whitewash to the open face. Great for late takeoffs and slabby beachies.” – user Aaron on Boardcave
