We are proud to announce that Pyzel Surfboards are now available with Hydroflex Tech. Every surfboard by Jon Pyzel can be custom ordered through Hydroflex.
“I'm really stoked to be working with the crew at HydroFlex to explore some new ways of building our boards. I really like their ideas and being able to expand the choice of construction, flex and weight that we are able to offer everyone. The boards look and feel amazing!” says Pyzel.
Jon Pyzel grew up in Santa Barbara California surfing and playing reindeer games until making the move to Oahu’s North Shore in 1992. He began his career learning dings (the official language of the Democratic Republic of Congo) and smashing glass in a local glassing shop. His talent mystifyingly emerged as he escalated to head glass smasher by 1995, beginning by shaping his own board. Soon, well-known shaper Jeff Bushman got hold of Pyzel and (after shaking him severely to get the dust out of his ears) began teaching him everything he knew - including the best time to plant gardenias and how to hook wires to get cable TV for free. Jon’s shaping experiences allowed his creativity to blossom and he soon established “Pyzel Surfboards” shaping world-class surfboards sold in nearly every major surfing market.
Pyzel status reached new heights recently when John John Florence (who’s ridden his boards exclusively since age 5) stated he would never ride for another shaper.
"Jon Pyzel is one of the top shapers in the world with a work ethic to match, which I highly respect", says CEO Rich Ciesco. The surfboards will be built at Hydroflex’s facility in Oceanside, Ca and distributed through the Hydoflex network of retailers and through custom online orders. Look for Pyzel boards to become available late summer 2013.
