Phantom Review-Noel Salas

The Phantom is a Step-down version of John John Florence's current favorite model, the Ghost. When the Ghost was first released we had no idea that itÂ’s unique design would come to be embraced by so many people in so many different types of waves. We kept hearing that it worked best in waves shoulder-high and up. Taking this feedback we made a step-down board that would bring that same feel to the head-high and under days that make up most of our daily surf sessions. The Phantom is a squashed down version of the Ghost, souped up, with added volume, great for your everyday sessions in less than epic conditions. We left the same Ghost rocker but added more single concave to flatten it out through the center, which helps to create speed and flow without taking away from the overall performance or feel of the original design. We added width in the tail and nose to create a more parallel, fuller outline that helps you maintain speed through slower sections and tight turns. The rails are full but not chunky, giving you more floatation and speed without taking away the sensitivity that we all love in our boards. The Phantom is best in waist-high to slightly overhead waves of all types. It's your daily driver with a high performance edge!

Gremlin Review-Noel Salas

If you love the feel of your Ghost and Phantom, but want a shorter, chunkier board for smaller surf the Gremlin is gonna make you very happy! Based off Ghost DNA, it's the step-down cousin to the Phantom, with lots of extra volume packed into a shorter, wider, flatter rockered package designed for quick acceleration, easily sustained speed and great paddle power. The Gremlin was made to get you excited about surfing on the days that are less-than-epic, and also to give you a taste of FunFormance that will get you fired up in any kind of surf. The wider outline is complimented by a low entry rocker for easy speed and glide through the weakest, slowest sections, but we keep a bit of curve through the tail rocker to add performance and maneuverability. The bottom runs from single to double concave, with a nice bit of Vee running of the tail. This all adds up to a board that paddles easy, gets up and goes fast, and still has a snappy, drivey, high-performance feel to get you the most out of every Wave you catch. Ride it just above your height or up to 6" shorter (depending on your surfing ability), nice and wide and thicker then your shortboard.
