thanks Pete!

“Hey zippi!
I had my first session on the new zippi on Sunday… I
was at church’s and it was about shoulder high…sets a little
bigger…wow what a fast little board! Seriously the fastest board I’ve
ridden… Made impossible sections…just cranking down the line! It
…was really quick to come around through turns and cut backs! Can’t wait
for my next session!!
Thanks for the stoke!

Zippi,

Just wanted to thank you again for a great job on my board. I love it and can’t wait to ride it! Wanted to get some pics of it before it gets it’s 1st wax.

Thanks again! I’m really stoked!

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.

Michael,

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?

Thanks,
Vindawg

~Michael,

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.

Hey Zip,

Interested in a 6’2″ or 6’4″ Grouper. I’m 5’9″, 160lbs, and 53 y.o.. I ‘m more a weekend warrior now, surfing the mid-atlantic in summer and tropics now and then in winter. Would this size be good for me? Been surfing for 30yrs now even though not as much as I used to. Thanks for all your help. Psyched for a Zippi!

~Hi Rick,

A 5’2″ to 6’4″ sounds about right.

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!

thanks again,

Neil
