The Shadow is our new high-performance shortboard addition to the Ghost family which has already become a favorite for John John Florence, Jack Freestone and most of our friends! This board will help you surf how you want in a wide range of wave conditions and sizes.
The Shadow is designed to give all surfers the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board, but in a sleek, modern package.
Modern foil/outline brings improved stability, paddle power, easy speed/flow in weaker waves. Rocker and bottom contours combine to generate speed and allow tight, powerful turning in all conditions.
The Shadow features our version of a high performance outline, with the wide point at center not behind as is typical of most other HPSBs. It has a gentle hip for added sensitivity and looseness, and the squash tail is pulled in a touch to tighten the turning radius and improve vertical surfing capability. The tail rocker and bottom concave remain similar to the Phantom, since that combo has proven to work really well in everyday conditions in waves around the world. The thickness flow, or foil, is what really sets the Shadow apart from most other HPSBs, keeping the volume a little bit in front of the center, but not overly exaggerated.
