“Combining the light weight and stiff connection I feel under my feet, the Phazer V1 and now the V2 have proved excellent partners for whatever foil I’m wanting to use it with on any day, seemingly in any conditions.”
For me, this is still a winning board that I am yet to find any gaps in its performance. It’s easier to get on and ride than other boards I’ve tried of the same 65L buoyancy and the subtle changes that have been introduced by AK are worthy of a new iteration of the range.
If you already have a Phazer V1, if you ask me there’s no need to upgrade to the same size in the V2. But if you want to step down in size, or add another size to your quiver, then the V2 model will only add more performance to your riding through its own increased forgiveness and efficiency in the various ways it interacts with the water.
Strapped / unstrapped, in surf or for learning turns or tricks on flat water, I really do enjoy both the Phazer V1 and V2.
