Fresh drop of Pyzel's - The Ghost

Pyzel is back in store and the main reason is that The Ghost is one of the best selling boards on the planet right now! This board is John Johns go to weapon and who can forget his performances in the Margaret River Pro, mind blowing!

The same design that JJF rode to his (second) 2017 World Title! The Ghost is a possibly the first truly High Performance board that works great for all levels of surfer and could be considered a one-board quiver for any surf trip with decent to good waves on the menu.

A super versatile board, it has become one of JJF's favourites for all kinds of surf (Margaret River winner, Bells Ollie Oop, J-Bay carves, and even head-high Trestles) and a go-to for many surfers around the world.

Originally designed for performance in hollower, more powerful types of waves, the Ghost has proven to be great for reef breaks, dumpy beachies, and also excels in point waves.

Based off of our Short Cut, The Ghost outline is more refined: it still has the wide point pushed a bit forward of center, but the nose area is kept down and the tail slightly pulled in to help it fit into a tighter curve.

The thickness is also pushed forward, which helps even more with getting you into waves easily, and we kept the tail and rails thinned out to help hold through barrels and turns at speed.

The rocker is med/low through the front half to get you into waves easily and pick up speed quickly. The rear end has plenty of rocker curve for turning control and a snappy responsiveness. Single concave runs through the entire bottom, with a double concave set inside, which equals speed and lift both on a rail and over flat spots while allowing for quick rail-to-rail transitions. The Ghost's combination of rocker and concave makes for high performance handling through a healthy mix of sensitivity and control.

 Depending on what you want to ride it in we recommend you order your Ghosts anywhere from your height to 8" over, a 1/4" to 1/2" wider, and 1/8" to 3/8" thicker than your everyday shorty. Stock boards all have 5-fin set up.

Demo Surfboards! Try before you buy at Star

After the success of our Surfboard Demo Day last year, we have decided to offer our customers a selection of the latest models from DHD, HS and Firewire to try out before you spend your hard earned. We hope all of our VIPS who test-drive one of our demo surfboards will get the chance to really work out what sort of board you'd like and you'll also be able to try some designs you'd never normally surf.

The demo program will work like this:

  1. Customers in the market for a new board can check out our selection of demo boards at your local Star or have a look at the list below and choose which board they'd like to have a surf on.
  2. Star takes a $50 deposit from your for the board and you take it for a shred.
  3. You return the surfboard and repeat the process again if you'd like to try another model OR if you fell in love with the board you initially test-drove, you can grab a brand new one off our rack and we'll take the $50 deposit off the price of the board. (You can still use your VIP discount to lower the board price further)
  4. Happy days - you've got a new shooter!

Some of our demo boards are also available for sale. See list below for discounted prices on boards + deck grips that have only been ridden a couple of times.
