    Default Phase 5 Hammerhead. Reviews??

    Is anyone out there riding a 2019 55í hammerhead? Thoughts, reviews, likes, dislikes? Looking at one but buying off the catalog doesnít give me much info.

    Any thoughts are good info.

    Thanks

    Richard.

    I have a 2016 Phase 5 Hammerhead. I really like it, but I will say it is super squirrelly. If you are going from a surf style board it will take you a little bit to get used to it. It is a fast board and great for spin tricks. It is not a beginner board though.

    Great board if you plan to learn revert riding(board backwards) otherwise I'd skip it and get a matrix.

    Just looking to update my old Obrien Alias. I just picked up a used Ahi but I am new to the surf style boards. Adding a skim in my size will give me and my guests a couple of options. There is also a Phase 5 XB for sale, does anyone have experience with this board. Dropping a Grand on a board that you may not like is tough.

    I hear you on dropping some $ and not knowing if you will like a board or not. Are there any shops in your area that will let you Demo a few? If you are looking for a spare board for guests to use, I would definitely not drop a grand. My buddy has an old Slingshot skim board (canít remember what the name is), and to be honest it is one of my favorite skim boards. It was probably $300 new 4 years ago.

    Slingshot bender. Looks like they donít make this model anymore.

    Thanks. There are shops to try, but Calgary is 1.5 hours away from Red Deer, so trying one and then taking it back is a PITA.

    Thank for all the info. Helps make a decision without trying.

    I just picked up a 2020 hammerhead 55Ē, havenít ridden it yet but will report back. My go-to board (and one of the only Iíve ridden thatís fast enough for my 6í4Ē 245lb butt to easily stay in the pocket) is my old Phase5 Danielo pro carbon model and figured I couldnít go wrong with this one. I needed a 2nd board to keep one at home (for riding local with a buddy) and one at the lake house.

    I think the shape changed in 2020? New design?

    Yep, itís the ďpeanutĒ shape. I was torn between finding a 2019 down vs trying the new shape for 2020. I like the idea of the added width at my front foot, but again I havenít ridden it yet so I donít know how itíll play out. In theory Iím thinking/hoping itís really fast...
