  1. Can Zippis still be ordered through Freedom Surf shop in VA beach?

    Freedom Surf Shop in VA has a new owner. He has not ordered any new boards, but all he has to do is call and order.


  2. hi michael

    I am a friend of ted robinson i rode one of your boards he had a few months ago. i loved it how can i get one just like it?? i believe it was 5’8 or 5’10 twin epoxy, would you have the measurements for his board? i would like to order one asap, i think it was light blue or green in color. let me know if it is possible to order one. he told me to call you. i cant find his number at the moment.

    thank you ..jeff schones

    email or call me 714-478-xxxx or

  3. How do i get a Zippi board suitable for kneeboarding?


    I would need a little more info as to what your looking for in regards to size, width, and thickness.
    Give me a call.


  4. Been kicking around getting a fish for a while now. Trying to go as small as possible. I would take a little more width over thickness or length. Wide shoulders, no worries. Gives it a little more slidey skatey feel I reckon. I am 6’2″, ~220, ride long and short, 7’2 board my current nice size. Barely float on my 6’10” tri, though it works so-so in the right conditions. I was thinking 6’2″ for a fish though. Too short? Can I take a test ride on any of your boards?

    • Hey Paul, I’m about your same size (little bigger) and am wondering the same thing. 6’2 sounds crazy small to me, I ride a 6’10 fish currently, but am also looking for another fish, one that can handle size, as Zippi purports his fish can. I’m interested to hear what he has to say.

  5. I am 5’4″ 115lbs looking for a zippi. I live here in LA.

  6. I am 120 lbs and normally surf 7’6″. Looking for a Zippi. Typical fish are to edgy and flat in transition. Want a more smoother edge to edge transition. What would be best for me based on desire and size?

  7. My friend just got a board from you, think it’s a 6’0. Really like the way it rode even with my size(230 lbs). Do you think it’s possible to go 5’10 with my size, and just increase the thickness? Also, is the fin placement a big difference between twin & quad. I would like to feel the difference between both but not sure if the twin fin set up on quad fin boxes will feel different than a regular twin.

  8. hi,
    interested in trying one of your fish designs. i currently ride a roberts white diamond on most days 5-10 x 19-3/4 x 2-3/8 and my typical shortboard is 6-3 x 19 x 2-3/8 in well overhead surf. i am 5-10 and weigh 185 pounds, but can paddle pretty well on smaller boards. im looking for something that will work well in mushy summer surf to up my wave catching on small days, but may be able to handle a little steeper down the line conditions too… i checked out the high performance model and was wondering what dimensions i should go with. i want to catch alot more waves, but not sacrifice maneuverability if possible. also, i hate quads, so would it be better to get a twin with or without a trailer fin? thanks for your time, hope to hear back soon!!! oh, where can i try one of your boards? i live in el segundo… thanks again

    I live in Puerto Rico and I’d tried one of those zippifish surfboards and it was awesome, but i would like to know about how much does it costs a zippifish surfboard and i whant to know if you ship boards down here

  10. I would also like to know whether you would be able to ship it to England, where I live. I’ve been looking for a fish for quite a while and I’ve just found positive comments on the Zippifish. I would be interested in getting a Grouper, 6’6 or 6’8.

  11. how can i order a zippifish. what styles of fish do you make?
    how much does a custom board usually cost, which types of glassing options do you offer?
    I am 6′ 175 lbs . I believe a 5’8″ or 5’6″ should be a good length. I would like it to be a quad fin. Please get back to me soon.

  12. I’m 5~8 180 lbs looking for a quad fish 6~6. l
    could i get a price please.

  13. Hi I’m 5’10” about 168 lbs and looking for a zippi fish for the mushier days here in LA. Usually use a larger CI Flyer or a 5’11” CI Dagger. Any suggestions on dimensions?
