If you love the feel of your Ghost and Phantom, but want a shorter, chunkier board for smaller surf the Gremlin is the board you are gonna want!
Based off the 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 design that JJF rode to two consecutive World Titles! The Ghost is 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.
The Phantom is the middle child in the Ghost Family, a step-down version of John John Florence's current favorite model (the Ghost) and designed to be your go-to board for everyday conditions.
Already a favorite of John John Florence, Jack Freestone and the rest of our team, its the board that lets you surf how you want in a wide range of wave conditions and size.
Knowing that the Phantom is a great board for many types of conditions, Jon decided to start with there and redesign it as a more refined, high performance board, while still keeping the added flow and glide that defines the Phantom.
The Shadow is designed to give all surfers the advantages of a wider, forward outlined type of board, but in a sleek, High Performance 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.
✪ Great for all types of waves from beach breaks to points, reefs and even slabs.
✪ Will help Intermediate surfers elevate their performance levels, while also bringing out the best in more advanced surfers.
The Shadow features a high performance outline, the wide point at center not behind as is typical of most other HPSBs. We pulled in the nose by almost a ½ inch and added rocker through the last 12 in the nose to keep it freed up through critical turns.
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.
Tail rocker and bottom concave remain similar to the Phantom, already proven to work well in everyday conditions around the world.
The thickness flow sets the Shadow apart from other HPSBs, keeping the volume more forward of center but not overly exaggerated. Added foam under the chest area helps add paddle power and gives extra float under your front foot in slower sections, meaning easy speed and flow.
Ride the Shadow your height to an inch over, in your favorite high performance dimensions.
The Astro Pop is designed to give you some extra spark and easy paddle in weaker, slower waves, while still keeping a performance edge and super fun to ride in good surf.
Built off of the Astro, the retro fish weʼve been making for years, the Astro Pop has a more pulled in nose and tail, with a little wing to help pull in the last 4 inches of the tail which creates a lot of curve in the outline, adding maneuverability without sacrificing any speed. The bottom has a deep double concave running through to vee off the tail which makes the board get up on top of the water in even slower, weaker waves and still easily tip over onto the rail at high speeds.
A mild beak nose helps keep the thickness up into the nose, but itʼs not overly chunky, more like a daily driver type board but with easy paddling aided by the flatter entry rocker. We recommend the Astro Pop as a quad, for speed, but it comes stock with a 5-fin setup to maximize versatility.
Ride it short as you want (mine is 5ʼ5) and about 3⁄4ʼʼ to 1ʼʼ wider, with a thickness that gives you a bit more volume than your everyday shortboard.
