Hi Zippi,

I picked up my 5′11″ fish in January and have surfed it almost non-stop since. It’s worked great in everything from head high points to knee high beach breaks. It makes so many sections that I never could make before and is really fast. I love it!

Thanks!

Matt

Zippi,

How big can you take the Redline up to?
6’4″ or 6’6″?
What would the DIMS look like at that size?
Looking for a “fish” that will hold better than my standard fish (6’4″ x 21.75 x 2.75) when the local beachbreaks get steep and hollow. Dont like traditional shortboards. I am a very heavy front footed surfer. (6’1″, 200lbs)

Thanks for your time
Casey

~Casey,

The dims for the Redline are:

6’4″ x 22″ x 2 7/8″

6’6″ x 22 1/4″ x 2 7/8″

Please give me a call if you have any other questions.

Zippi,

Wanted to let you know I picked up my custom 5’7″ Zippi from Ken and Ben down at Icons, the green one. I debated on waiting for the original brown one, but decided that I could not wait 2 more weeks to get on a Zippi. I have been riding it non-stop down here in South County and S.D. It works great in small knee high slop and chest high beachies and points. Can’t wait to test in this week in some decent head high surf.

Hi,

My name is Ruben Tamayo. I am from Mexico. I surf in Celestino Gasca, Sinaloa, where the waves are mushy a lot of times, yet sometimes get to 10 feet.
I would like to get a fish small that can handle that size wave, hollow waves, and something all around………but small. So what do you recommend for me?

I am 5’9″and weigh about 150lbs.

~Hey Ruben,

I suggest a 5’6″ or a 5’7″ Zippifish.

Please let me know if there are any other questions I can answer for you.

WOW!

Rode my new 6’4″ today in real waves (well, sorta…Venice homebreak, chest-shoulder high, anyway). Took my surfing to a new level in an hour! Never thought a board that could float my fat ass could be so loose and have drive and be easy to paddle. Here’s some better shots for ya! Thanks again.
