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!
Pete”

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,

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.

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.

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
