  1. Cool site, great to see the Zippi fish in action! Now show us your grouper.

    Beautiful boards! I’m a Zippi from western PA. Our family originates from San Omero Italy.
    Are we related?
    Best wishes,
    Shelly Zippi Werner

  3. To be honest I don’t know.
    I think the Zippis from Italy are related but I don’t know.

    Mike,
    San Omero is in Abbruzzi and very close to the villege of Torano Nuovo … so we most likely are related to Shelly.

  5. Hey Mike,
    Could you snap a photo of the board you just finished for me? I can’t wait to get back to California and pick it up.
    Cheers.

  6. Zippi Rocks!!!!! Been surfing my custom 5’8″ for a couple of months now. It blows my mind how this thing catches waves, turns, punches through sections and grips in the hollow stuff! Thanks for working w/me on the dims zippi.

  7. Bought a used 6ft for my son, it’s a bit wide for his 11yr old shoulders to paddle, so I’ve been riding it. I’m amazed at how it paddles, catches waves, and turn like a skateboard. Never thought at 210lb I’d be riding a 6ft board, but I’m now convert! The little thing is the Shiz!

  8. Mike, Thanks for meeting my dad and I late at night to deliver my new fish. The next afternoon we were riding perfect surf at Scorpion Bay! My new Zippifish worked insane! Super stoked! Now my Dad has to have one! Mikey

  9. Hey Zippi, I was thinking about having a squid shaped for me, but I would like to see one in action. Got any vids that you could post on your site?

    I have a refurbished Bing shaped by Dan Bendickson on my wall. We miss him. Tomorrow I’m gonna run out to ET and score one of yours. I look forward to it.

    mahalo!

  11. Do you guys make the standard twin / channel bottoms w/ glass in fins? I’ve only seen lokbox… Also — what are the fin base & height you recomend for a board around 5’10” ?
    Thanks

    ~Yes
    I do make glass on fins.
    They’re the same template as the box and they were designed for the board.
