The Phantom is the Step-down version of John John Florence's current favorite model the Ghost. When we first brought out the Ghost we had no idea that it’s unique design would come to be embraced by so many people in so many different types of waves. However, the one bit of feedback we kept hearing was that it was that it works best in waves shoulder-high and up, so we looked at making a step-down board that would bring that same feel to the head-high and under days that make up most of our daily surf sessions.
The Phantom is a Ghost squashed down, souped up, and with added volume, great for your everyday sessions in less than epic conditions. We left the same Ghost rocker but added more single concave to flatten it out through the center, helping to create speed and flow without taking away from the overall performance or feel of the original design. The added width in the tail and nose create a more parallel, fuller outline that helps keep speed up through slower sections and tight turns. The rails are full but not chunky, giving you more flotation and speed without taking away the sensitivity that we all love in our boards. Best in waist-high to slightly overhead waves of all types the Phantom is your daily driver with a high performance edge.
