I am shopping for a new fish. I currently have a 6′ twin that is not as aggressive as I desire. I tried my friends Hynson 5’11” twinzer and it was much more aggressive. I am an intermediate surfer 5’11”, 180-190 lbs(depending on season). I surf Venice a few times per week so you have an idea of the waves I am riding. Which Zippi board do you recommend for me to get to the next level?
I believe a 5’9″, a 5’10”, or possibly a 5’11” will work for you.
I have demos of each of these boards.
Give me a call and you can check them out.

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.

Subject: Love and my new 5’10”!
Mike – Quick note to let you know I surfed my new fish this morning
and fell in love with your boards all over again.
El Porto looked fun and rideable at 6:15, but was swamped out by
7:30ish. Surf was soft, waist high + with a few larger sets here and
there but the tide came up quickly.
Still, I got on it early and knew the fish would be the right board
for the day. I was having a blast catching even the mushiest of waves
and riding some of them all the way into the sand while most everyone
else paddled for outside and inside sets with great futility only to
come up empty on their chippy, high-performance shortboards. Me?
Smile from ear-to-ear and very little wait time between waves. I left
the water tired…most others left frustrated.
Also, I should mention: the extra hint of length on the 5’10 feels
great to me. Perhaps its my imagination, but it feels like the rails
aren’t quite as thick as on the 5’9″ and somehow felt in better
control, esp. during turns. Overall, this balance worked great for me
this morning. Looking forward to pushing it in juicier waves.
What more can I say? I love my Zippi Fish!

I was just researching for different kinds of fish surfboards and I ran across your website. I am 5’9″, 170 pounds and I am looking for a fish for the southbay surf as well as for a transition board from my 6′8″ thruster. I have ridden my friend’s 6′1″ Becker quad fish without any problems. What would you suggest for me? I would consider myself as intermediate plus.
Thanx for the question.
5′11″ or 6′
I have demo if you would like to try one.

These photos and words were emailed to us by Zippifish rider Nick:
I love the board. I’ve ridden it four times since Tuesday and each time it gets better. I really like the twin keel setup, but today I tried it with my quad fins. At first it didn’t seem great, but I moved the rear fins all the way to the front of the box and the board started to fly. I’m not really sure which setup I like more yet, but I suspect that the speed dialers will work a little better in juicier surf. I can’t wait to keep experimenting with the setups. Thanks so much for a killer board.
