The SHADOW is now in stock at Zak Surfboards (SHOP NOW)- a new 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.
