Pyzel The Shadow

A high performance shortboard design from John Pyzel . The Shadow sits in the 'Ghost' family right between the Ghost and Phantom. The wide point in the shadow isn't quite as far forward the those other two designs & the Shadow isn't quite as full through the nose. It does however remain relatively generous up there with plenty of foam under for a HP shortboard thanks to some subtle tweaks in the foil.

The Shadow has a touch less area up front and a little more nose rocker to prevent it from catching and reduce the swing weight. The tail is a a nice pulled in squash tail with a subtle hip for added snap through turns & to help keep it nice and tight in the pocket. The rocker and bottom contour has been kept identical to the Phantom - a proven combination of medium curve & single to double concaves that works great in everyday waves around the world. The foil has been expertly tuned to maximise flow and paddle power meaning that Shadow should grovel a touch better than most boards. If you are in the market for a new HP shortboard then the Shadow is definitely worth checking out...
