The shape seems to do all the work for you, as if its trying to help you create a smoother style.

The ghost is fast, freaky fast. That was the first thing I noticed about it. I also noticed how smooth it turns from rail to rail.

I’ve ridden a couple of these shapes and I really enjoy how effortlessly you can surf them.

You don’t need to pump, chop, hop, or flail to generate speed.

I’ve noticed a big change in the way I surf since riding The Ghost. Todd noticed it too when we were in Peru.

It’s helped me link my turns into one continuous motion

without the wishy-washy pumps and hops in between maneuvers.

The width runs a little higher towards the nose, sort of similar to Da Monsta but yet has a standard shortboard size.
That really helps me with two things: when doing airs or throwtails and my weight is on my front foot, and second,
I can take this board out in waves knee high to double head-high.

It rides responsive like Da Monsta but feels more reliable in large surf because there is more board under your feet.
Needless to say, I’ll continue ordering Ghosts because I love em’ and I know what I’m going to get every time.
Todd, keep on pumping these puppies out cause’ I can’t get enough!
