If you've already got a 6-0 Ghost that you like the 5-10 Phantom is a no brainer. Same rail rocker line and only 0.2L of volume difference will make the transition pretty seamless.

Actually...that's kinda the thing...I really don't like the Ghost...yet. I have only ridden it a few times in 6-8' mushy sunset cliffs waves. Most definitely NOT the waves its meant for. Im holding out hope that I'll like it in curvy hollow waves. I never got to try it at Blacks or Baja Malibu this winter, where I know it would excel.

I do generally really like boards with lower entry rocker, wider noses, wide point forward and deep single concave (i.e. Phantom). I'm a front foot surfer that grew up surfing at Sunset Cliffs and am used to wider flatter boards because of that.

Ghost doesn't like mush unless it's like...big and powerful, open ocean mush. Phantom doesn't love mush either, honestly. It wan'ts a pocket or at least some push. It's not really a step down groveler like a GrinderX, Subdriver, etc. It surfs more like a shortboard, just shorter and wider.

Hmmmm...for $625 new on sale rn I might have to do this.

My other option was a custom 5'10" CI Black and White. Tried a demo before and really liked it. Only problem is the stock dims in 5'10" are around 26L. So I'd need a custom and it would end up being too expensive with tax and shipping to me. Especially cause I want it in Spine-Tek.

I've recently tried my new Phantom in chest high conditions on a reef break (only one session by now). Board size 5'8", fins Accelerator M. At first glance, the feeling was good. I liked the board responsiveness and speed since my first wave. I will update once i'll try it in different conditions.
