The surfboards from Pyzel have been used by the best surfers in the world and won multiple prizes. Jon Pyzel was born in Santa Barbara, California. In 1998 Pyzel shaped his first board for John “John” Florence. John was barely 5 years old. Since then they´ve become inseparable. Today Pyzel Surfboards have grown to become an international business. The boards from Pyzel have been used by some of the best surfers in the world like John “John” Florence, Kelly Slater, Mark Healey, Jack Freestone, Michel Bourez, Jadson Andre, Nathan Florence, etc…
TECHNOLOGIES CONSTRUCTION PYZEL SURFBOARDS
Building a surfboard in PU/PE means using a blank of polyurethane foam and glazing it with polyester resin. This is how most of today's surfboards are built. It's not a new way to make a board, but the materials are very stable, strong, consistent and easy to work with.
Polyurethane foam is closed cell, which means it won't absorb easily into the water if you dent the board, and that also means it doesn't absorb too much resin when it's glazed, keeping your board light. Many surfers prefer the feel of PU/PE boards because that's what they've used all their lives, and because they feel great with this type of board.
In Pyzel Surfboards they only use the best foam blanks, fiberglass and resin of the highest quality, and they also have the best shapers. The result is lightweight, high performance white boards at a reasonable price that look beautiful and work perfectly.
2. EPS Standard
EPS (Extruded Polystyrene, commonly called Styrofoam) is a very light foam that is glazed with epoxy resin to create a lightweight, sensitive surfboard that can help you get the most out of weaker, slower wave conditions. The foam itself is not as strong as traditional PU raw pieces, so Pyzel uses a stronger epoxy resin to make it strong enough to withstand, but still a little lighter than the PU/PE construction.
The greatest advantages of Pyzel Epoxy boards are found mainly in the weight, but many people also prefer the overall feel of EPS rather than PU. The negative aspects are found in the cost (the average is about 100 euros more expensive per board) and also the weight and feel of the trip can be difficult to get used to at first.
3. Pyzel Electralite Epoxy
Surfboards made with ElectraLite Epoxy Tech technology are built to replicate the ultra-lightweight feel of a Pro surfboard, but with more strength and durability than PU. Lightweight and strong, with engineering flexibility that is designed to last.
Pyzel uses recycled EPS Blanks without struts and epoxy resin (both help minimize their environmental impact), carbon reinforcement at the bottom and on the deck for increased strength and glazes with 4 ounces on the bottom and 6/4 ounce covers with a combination of E and S fabrics. The result is a super lightweight board with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, plus flotation for better rowing power, with a feeling of freshness and vitality.
ElectraLite Tech is a great way to breathe new life into your favorite high-performance surfboard.
