I'm 45 surf mainly horrible wind swell, weigh too much for the stock 6'1 Ghost, surf at best 1 week but more like every 2 weeks. But when its chest high or bigger with some push, the Ghost is uniquely good. It will afford you some front foot lazy drive but get your back foot back and the looseness is surprising.
That’s what im looking for. Even at home unless I’m truly wave starved or out for a social visit with RG or whoever, I’m probably not paddling out unless it’s at least chest high, punchy, ideally a lower tide. Sounds like this should run just faaaaahhhn in our often fun little punchy days when we get ‘em, and then really come to life when we get a proper hurricane swell or fall nor’easter, and of course on surf trips :jamon:

and I still have that fairly zippy and mint condition hypto krypto “step up” 6’1 which honestly goes pretty fast even in weak little waves. Good two-board daily quiver…

still have a fat boy 6”1 squash thruster and 6”9 round tail thruster that now, at my current weight, would be true step up and semi gun status. Hell they may simply be way too much volume now being 70 pounds lighter than when DK made them for me. I bet the thick but well made 6”1 would still be fun for a cold overhead ++ winter session. Hell a water logged six mil must weigh 20 pounds. More?

That’s the same sensation I had with the krypt hatchets in anything steeper than mushy surf.
This was more about open ocean power, and to some extent tradewind chop, than steepness. I ride the C-drives in hollow surf pretty frequently, and they handled double overhead, jacking Witches Rock and barreling Pavones just fine.

I picked up a slightly squashed down version of Pyzalien 2 from a poster here and skipped the custom wait time. Rode it a bit last week in Frank swell with AM2s as a starting point and it's extremely versatile. Could easily see traveling most places with just one of these and a few fin setups rather than my normal coffin(s) circus act. Looking forward to giving a twin plus trailer setup a go.

Really like Pyzel rocker profiles, will definitely be building out quiver of shapes as Ghosts have also been good to me...1660236013089.jpeg
