Pyzel Mini Ghost 5'8 x 19 ¼ x 2 ½ Surfboard
The Mini Ghost came to be as a result of working with Koa Smith to build a rippable short, chunky, fun version of one of his favorites, the Ghost. Koa loves riding tiny boards for the smaller days on the North Shore, but Pyzel needed to pack more volume into them to make them functional and give them paddle power and stability.
Pyzel shrunk Koas 5-9 Ghost down to a 5-5 and to give it more float Pyzel widened it up a touch, flattened out the deck and made the rails thicker and more boxy. Pyzel also added a modern beak nose to keep even more foam under the chest-area and up into the nose. The volume added is significant - a 5-10 Ghost XL is 28.80 liters, while a 5-7 Mini Ghost comes in at 28.70 liters! Pyzel made a few small changes to the rocker and it comes in either a round tail, or a wider bump squash to make the board very fun in smaller, weaker waves.
Overall the best way to describe it is a sort of throwback 80s looking board with all the added performance features of a modern design. It is made for high performance ripping, but is also great for less skilled surfers due to the added volume and forgiving ride. Meant to be ridden 3-4 inches shorter, and around the same volume as your normal shortboard, the Mini Ghost will give your surfing a fresh feel and keep you happy in all kinds of conditions and types of waves.

A board built in PU/PE means that Pyzel uses a Polyurethane foam blank and glass it with Polyester resin. This is how the majority of today’s surfboards are built. It is how they've been making boards for years, and these materials let us make a very stable, strong, consistent, and high-performance board that has the feel that most people are used to. PU foam is closed celled, meaning it won’t easily soak in water if you ding your board, and that also means that it doesn’t absorb too much resin when getting glassed, keeping your board light. Many surfers prefer the feel of PU/PE boards because that is what they have ridden all their lives, and because they feel really good.
At Pyzel Surfboards, they use only the best foam blanks, highest quality fiberglass and resin, and hire the best craftsmen in the industry. The result is light, tight and bright high performance, reasonable priced boards that look beautiful and work great.
