Pyzel Padillac Step Up Surfboard
The Padillac has been ridden to more big wave contest victories than any other single surfboard design in history! John John Florence won the 2016 Eddie at maxing Waimea, Billy Kemper rode them to an unbelievable 4 Jaws wins (and a second place) AND got what is considered the greatest Jaws tube ride so far! Mark Healey gave it the name, and was instrumental in developing and testing the design which he was on when he won the 2014 Billabong XXL Biggest Paddle Award! In the past few years Nathan Florence, JJF, Makua and Koa Rothman, Eli Olson, Billy Kemper, Nic Von Rupp and a bunch of other crazy f@#$ers have put it to the test in the world’s biggest waves and they all come back saying it’s the best big wave board they have had.
Like the name implies, this board is built to paddle fast and easy, with extra thickness and a fuller outline than most standard guns so you can catch and ride bigger waves with confidence and ease.
It has a clean, flowing rocker, and a light vee bottom with double concaves to give you speed and sensitivity while still maintaining control in heavy conditions. It comes as a quad, for both speed and maneuverability, and can handle anything the ocean throws at you.
Made in sizes between 6’10 and 10’6, it is a great board for deeper water waves like Sunset, Cloudbreak, Puerto Escondido, Ocean Beach, or anywhere else that gets BIG and HEAVY. It is also a great choice for bigger surfers looking for a controlled, easy feel in all types of waves.
A nice crisp flowing rocker combined with a light vee into a double concave gives you responsive turning and speed. The Pyzel Padillac is great for bigger surfers or those chasing bigger clean swell.
