I picked up my 5′11″ fish in January and have surfed it almost non-stop since. It’s worked great in everything from head high points to knee high beach breaks. It makes so many sections that I never could make before and is really fast. I love it!

I’m considering ordering a Grouper after talking to a satisfied Zippi owner. I’m 5′ 11″ and 200lbs. I’m usually surfing a 9′-6″ longboard or a 7′-0″ shortboard at Bolsa Chica, Huntington or Trails at San O. I’m a weekend surfer these days and consider myself an intermediate or better surfer.
What size Grouper would you recommend? 6’2″? 6’4″? And how much should I expect to pay for an epoxy?
Let me know what you think and how to best get a hold of you when I’m ready to order.
I think a 6’2″ would work best for you.
Give me a call.

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
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.

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.

I am getting back into surfing after an 8 year hiatus. I live in the South Bay, and usually surf Manhattan Beach or the Avenues. I have a 9’0″ board that I have taken out a few times recently, but it just feels so constrictive. I am interested in getting a fish, but I am not sure what type and size would be the best for me. I would classify myself as an intermediate surfer who wants to get better. I prefer waist high days, but will surf anything from slop to head high. I am 6’0″ and fluctuate between 185 and 195 lbs. Also, the most difficult part of surfing to me is getting out on those bigger days. Thanks for your help.
I have a few demos for you to try.
Give me a call.

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!

A 5’2″ to 6’4″ sounds about right.
