Pyzel Red Tiger XL - Red TopRegular price $1,415.00 Save $-1,415.00
The XL version is exactly the same, with stock dims built to suit the bigger, stockier surfer, or for more novice surfers looking to level-up in their surfing by downsizing to a smaller board.
Silky smooth, even in junk waves, and possibly our fastest board yet, The Red Tiger is John John Florence's new High Performance Shortboard unlike anything we have released in the past. It is the ultimate performance machine for medium sized, slower, weaker waves, based on John's simple guidance - make it Fast and Fun.
The idea for this board was hatched when John began riding some different "fun" boards during some breaks from competing. By far his favorite in the last year has been our new flat rockered, Funformance board, the White Tiger (5'6"), and he asked me to turn that design into something he could take back on tour to ride when the surf was less than pumping, or on the weaker side.
The rocker and bottom contour is really what sets this board from other boards in this category. Its our flattest HPSB so far and that rocker translates to easy, consistent speed from the moment you stand up, through flat sections and even in super weak, small waves. But, flat rocker can feel sticky and tends to make you surf flat, so we run single to double concave (JJF's favorite bottom contour) through the front 2/3 of the board and then blend that into a significant double concave/deep vee combo through the fins and off the tail. This bottom keeps the flatter board easy to roll rail-to-rail and the vee of the tail works to allow easy vertical surfing and short-arc carves, even in tight, pockety waves.
Ride your Red Tiger around an inch shorter than "normal" HPSB, and a bit wider. Volume should be close, but go up a ½ to1 liter for added zing in weaker waves. The board will easily turn your everyday sessions into something special and we believe it will outperform any other HPSB in underpar waves AND still come through when the surf turns on!
