The Phantom XL is optimized for paddle power, carveability and drive in any type of surf for surfers that need a bit more foam.
The Phantom XL is a step-down version of John John Florences favourite model, the Ghost. Taking the positive feedback from the Ghost, Jon Pyzel made a step-down board that would bring that same feel to the head-high and under days that make up most daily surf sessions.
The Phantom XL is a squashed down version of the Ghost, with added volume and great for your everyday sessions in less than epic conditions.
Jon Pyzel left the same Ghost rocker but added more single concave to the Phantom XL to flatten it out through the centre, which helps to create speed and flow without taking away from the overall performance or feel of the original design. Jon Pyzel added width in the tail and nose to create a more parallel, fuller outline that helps maintain speed through slower sections and tight turns. The rails are full but not chunky, giving more floatation and speed without taking away the sensitivity that John John Florence loved in his boards.
The Phantom XL is best in waist-high to slightly overhead waves of all types. A daily driver with a high performance edge.
