Ruben T.

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.

Hey Michael,

Hope you’re good. Here’s a shot of me on my 5’-9” slot-tail Zippi at a secret spot in Northern Baja during some heavy offshores.

About the slot tail: When you drop in and make a quick 90-degree turn across the face, if you dig really hard on that back foot as you’re going along you can feel the water hitting the slot before it hits the driving fin, triggering a little sliding action. It’s a controlled slide though, not a skip, much like on a skateboard. Super fun to do.

Will need a new board soon.

Cheers,

Richard

“The 5’9″ board was fast, loose, and a ton of fun. Thanks Zippi!”

Thanks Mike for sending us the photos.
