Shred Sled King

The Haydenshapes Shred Sled King is the ultimate step up option in the collection. With volume in all the right places the Shred Sled King allows you to paddle into waves early, with plenty of natural speed. This board will hold in bigger surf but will still allow you to keep it critical in the pocket with the reduced length compared traditional step up surfboards.

All round performance surfing the Shred Sled King is a great option for the one board surfer. It may look your your traditional small wave board, but a few design tweaks allows it to light up when the swell gets up to 6 foot.

Step Up
T Patterson


The Step Up is exactly what it sounds like...a step up board for when your local turns on or you truly score on your trip. No one like to be under-gunned, so everyone should have a step up of some sort in their quiver. This Step Up keeps the wide point in the center for maximum paddle speed, and with single to double concave keeps you moving fast all while under full control. This board is designed to feel comfortable from the first time you ride it...a very important attribute for a board that only comes out when it gets serious.

The Step Up is best in those rare days when your local break is overhead + and you need a board that can handle the juice. This board will feel comfortable right from the get go, so make sure to pack it in your quiver for trips, the last thing you want is a board that can't handle some size when you are on the trip of a lifetime.

The Ghost has been developed with the Pyzel Team riders over a number of years to give you a board that performs in Bigger Better Waves.

The Pyzel Ghost goes best in more powerful waves like reef breaks, drainy, dumpy beach breaks or when you want to draw long lines on your favourite point break.
