Zak Ringmaster Round Tail

Zak Ringmaster Round TailZak Ringmaster Round Tail

The Zak Ringmaster design has and continues to tick a lot of boxes for a lot of our customers. As a result it has been one of our bestselling models since its introduction to our range. It is Zak’s take on a hybrid style fish, containing all the paddle power you will need packed into a sporty shape that you can maneuver easily.

Zak Ringmaster Round Tail collage 1 Zak Ringmaster Round TailThe Zak Ringmaster has a flat deck and boxy rails, ensuring an exceptionally forgiving and stable ride.  The slightly more pulled in swallow tail has been replaced with a round tail, extending the rail line for extra hold in steeper waves. The Round tail also makes this shape a lot smoother to turn. When ridden in the correct dimensions, this shape is perfect for those who want to maximize their paddle power without feeling like they are on a barge. Suitable for beginners, intermediate and advanced surfers in the right dimensions – surf it in all conditions up to 6 – 8 feet.

Zak Ringmaster Round Tail collage 2All of our own models at Zak Surfboards are shaped, glassed and finished locally here in Victoria.  We use only the highest quality materials to construct our boards. We also build our boards in a more robust fashion than the industry standard.

FCS II MB PC Carbon Tri Set

FCS II MB PC Carbon Tri SetThe FCS II MB PC Carbon Tri Set is a great all-round thruster set.  This particular fin template is a great choice for large/strong surfers in their day to day board, or for lighter surfers riding boards with wider tails.

FCS II MB PC Carbon Tri SetThese Matt ‘Mayhem’ Biolos signature template fins deliver a lively combination of drive, hold and maneuverability. This versatile fin holds it’s own both out on the face and in steeper parts of the wave.  When compared to a standard fin template (eg the Performer L template) this fin has a touch more  area in the bottom half , while being a little bit more upright (ie less rake) with less area in the top half.  This equates to a slightly tighter & snappier turning circle, while still maintaining hold and drive from the area in the bottom half.

Chilli Oh One in stock

Chilli Oh One in stockWe currently have the Chilli Oh One in stock and hanging on our racks.  The  Chilli Oh One design placed 2nd in 2015′s STAB IN THE DARK board contest judged by Julian Wilson.  This model combines a few key elements from  several of James Cheal’s most popular models to create the ultimate all round, all condition shortboard.

IMG_0633Oh One Collage 1There is extra volume in this model, in the center by the stringer of the board for paddle power and extra foam under the front foot to help  keep you moving through the flat sections.  The rail has been kept relatively low, to make sure that this model doesn’t feel too big and chunky board underfoot.

Oh One Rocker shotThe rocker and concaves in the Oh One are not too dissimilar from other high performance models in the Chilli range, allowing you to effectively ride critical parts of the wave and draw arcs in steeper sections. The thumb tail adds a touch extra curve to the outline in the back 3rd of the board – providing extra hold and super smooth turns.  A 5 fin set up gives you the option of the more consistent, predictable thruster fin configuration  or you can enjoy the speed and flow of a quad set up.

Maurice Cole Dirty Dingo

Maurice Cole Dirty Dingo The Maurice Cole Dirty Dingo is one of Maurice’s latest surfboard designs. This hybrid shape by all reports, rides like no other in a wide range of waves with some extra capabilities that others lack in smaller, weaker waves.  This model has been hugely popular for MC in the USA and we now have a full size run of them in store.  These are definitely one of the funnest looking shapes in the shop at the moment ;)

Maurice Cole Dirty Dingo Maurice Cole Dirty Dingo collage 1The Dirty Dingo design features Maurice’s signature deep, full-length concave combined with a hard edgy rails running the full length of the board.  This combination of bottom and rail shape create ridiculous amounts of speed and grip of the wave face, whilst also providing a clean release point off the rail of the board. The idea being that instead of water following the curved rail around the board, the water can exit or release cleanly from the hard edge of you rail, making you go faster by drastically reducing drag.

Not only do the sharp rails reduce drag, they also help you bite into the wave face, giving you superior hold, especially in steeper, more critical parts of the wave.  The grip this rail shape provides reduce you need to rely on you fins,  helping you knife into the face of the wave with ease and meaning you can push harder on you rails to create speed.

IMG_0619 Maurice Cole Dirty Dingo collage 2Maurice has grouped the fins together in a relatively tight fashion on the Dirty Dingo, to help the board pivot, making it more  manoeuvrable overall.   We are the only place in Australia that currently has this model in stock so come and Check out this board for yourself in store or check out all the Maurice Cole Surfboards that we have in stock ONLINE

 


Zak Kneeboards

Zak KneeboardsZak Kneeboards – that’s right, we have got some kneeboards in stock & on our racks in Thornbury.  New kneeboards are a rarity these days (unfortunately they seem to have become a craft that is only custom made). Being actually able to see and check out a kneeboard on the racks of any surf shop can be a tough task.  We get asked if we have / can get any in store from time to time, so Zak decided to make a few up for the shop.

Zak Kneeboard Collage 3IMG_0575 Zak Kneeboard Collage 4These designs feature a deep single concave bootom for speed that starts around the chest and finishes just befor the back fin.  Inside this single concave there is pronounced vee to help you lean it over onto it’s rail.

Zak Kneeboards Zak Kneeboard Collage 1e IMG_0582 Zak Kneeboard Collage 2These Kneeboards have low, hard rails with heaps of edge through the back third of the board for speed and release through turns.  We have these in both Futures and FCSII 5 fin plug options.

The Art of the Quiver part 2 The Groveller

The Art of the Quiver part 2 The GrovellerThe Art of the Quiver part 2 The Groveller (small wave weapon of choice)

In an ideal world we could have one board that would do everything – go well in all conditions, paddle ridiculously well yet still be ultra responsive and do exactly what we want it to , when we want it to.  Unfortunately this magic board doesn’t exist -  most people can get away with one allrounder, but the sheer variety of waves we have here in Victoria, coupled with other factors such as wind and tide make this a hard task.

One way to make sure you get the most out of what the ocean dishes out each time you hit the surf is to have a variety of surfcraft tailored to different conditions (ie a quiver of surfboards).   With a lot of our customers living locally, unable to surf only the best days of the week (like the lucky people who live on the coast) – a question we get asked fairly regularly is what  should you look for in a board for marginal/poor conditions, a specialized board for small waves or a Groveller?

Characteristics you generally are looking for in a Groveller are speed generation, maneuverability, loosness, extra paddle power and most importantly fun.

The Art of theIn weaker, mushier waves one of key characteristics you are looking for in a Groveller is a board ability to generate it’s own speed.  As a general rule, a flatter rocker is going to glide along a wave face pushing less water, it will also allow you to paddle into a wave easier and go faster, so flatter rockers are preferred in small wave shapes.

Small waves have smaller faces and therefore less room to fit your turns on them. The smaller amount of area and the tighter direction changes you will have to make on smaller wave faces mean that one must be carefull not to get anything too flat in the rocker department, or make sure that  flatter rockers are balanced out by other design characteristics that will make a board more maneuverable and able to draw the lines you need in small waves.  A popular way to do this is to have less length and more width in a small wave board so there is less straight rail & more curve in the outline of the board.  This means that once put on rail, the board will come around in a tighter arc.  Different fin templates and set ups such as quads can also be used to help you achieve this desired maneuverability.

IMG_1547Speed generating botton contours like deeper concaves and a wider tail block are useful in small wave crafts as they helps the board generate more of its own speed and give you extra lift.  Wider tail blocks also help to loosen up a board, not only do they help prevent you from sticking mid way through turns but they also help you get release out of your turns as well.

ft2-craig-1200x675 photo Craig editedExtra volume in a Groveller is a real no brainer.  More floatation will give you more paddle power and help you glide along when the wave is not giving you much push. Having a fuller rail in a small wave surf craft both add to the overall volume of the board and make it  more forgiving to surf.  You are less concerned with bite in weaked slopier waves, so a fuller rail gives you more margin for error and helps you negotiate chops and keep your flow along a wave without catching edge.

Lots of people opt for quirkier designs in small waves, which really add to the fun factor when under foot.  Unusual tail shapes, fins or other design characteristics  will give you a different & sometimes unpredictable feel to spice up your surfs when conditions aren’t lining up. Motivation to surf small waves can wane and there is nothing like riding something a bit different to get you amped to get out there.

Ribbet collageIf you are interested in getting a specialized board for small waves or a Groveller get in touch with one of our staff at Zak Surfboards on 03 9416 7384 – ordinarily we will have several suitable models on our racks for most people year round, with more options available heading into the warmer months.

Women’s 4/3 Furnace Comp Wetsuit

The furnace series are fully taped and sealed, with welded seams and extra reinforced taping in high-stress areas of the suit. They also utilise the Drymax Chest Zip entry system, which uses an extra light-weight flap to minimise any possible cold-water flushes through the neck area. If you are looking for a really warm suit for this winter, definitely consider trying on a furnace!

In men’s  we also have the Tri-Bong 4/3.

Billabong Wetsuits

Billabong Tri-Bong 4/3 Wetsuit

The Tri-Bong 4/3 is designed to balance warmth and flexibilty, with glued and blind stitched sealed seams and reinforced taping in high-stress  areas. It utilises AX2 superflex neoprene and is hollow fibre lined through the core and down the front of the legs so you get warmth where you need it and maintain the flexibility of a much thinner suit. If you are chasing a warm, flexible suit for this winter under $500, give the Tri-Bong a try…

We also have full size runs of the women’s Synery back zip wetsuits, available in 4/3 or 3/2.  The synergy is a perfect wetsuit if you’re looking to keep your costs down, but you still want to stay warm!

Axxe Custom Wetsuits

Axxe Custom WetsuitsAxxe Custom Wetsuits – with winter not far away why not treat yourself this year to an Axxe Wetsuit, custom fitted to your measurements, direct from their factory in Japan.  These are the gold standard in wetsuits – constructed out of the finest rubber, each suit is handcrafted & custom-fitted for you.  With the current convertion rate of the AUS$ to Yen, the price of a top of the range custom Axxe suit is not that much more expensive than the top of the range suits from other (non custom) brands.

Axxe Custom WetsuitsThe flexibility & suppleness of the rubber and linings used, combined with with tried and tested designs (fine tuned over their 35+years of making wetsuits) means these suits are unbeatable in terms of performance and functionality.  More warmth and less paddle restriction is the name of the game – nothing will keep you as warm or comfortable as an Axxe Suit.

Come in store to have a look at the sample suits that we have on our rack. If you are interested in getting one, get in contact with Damien in our shop ( ph 03 9416 7384 ) and he can take your measurements plus colour preferences and send your order off direct to Japan.


…Lost V2 Shortboard round tail

…Lost V2 Shortboard round tail We have just got a whole bunch of new …Lost V2 Shortboard round tail stock boards from Matt Mayhem Biolos for the shop.  Finish shaped and signed by the man himself while he was in Australia earlier this year.  There is a full size run in store now, hanging on our racks.

…Lost V2 Shortboard round tail …Lost V2 Shortboard round tail collage 1Last time we had a quiver of these they didn’t last for long at all.  The V2 Shortboard features a low rocker up front for easy entry into waves, speed of the mark with heaps of acceleration and drive off front foot.  When coupled with a generous amount of rocker through the tail , this makes for an extremely quick, snappy board to surf . The curvaceous outline and smallish tail block allows this board to fit comfortably into steeper sections – giving this board a great wave range and really making it come alive in good conditions.

IMG_0418We got Matt to make this this model in a round tail for us, for a little extra hold & smoother rail to rail transitions.   These boards look primed for the coming winter swells or a trip to the tropics.  If you after a responsive performance shortboard that’ll work well in Victorian waves and overseas – these are definitely worth coming in and checking out.

Slater Designs Omni

Slater Designs OmniThe Slater Designs Omni is now in store at Zak Surboards.  Last week, we got a bit delivery of the three models from Slater Designs the Sci-Fi, The Omni & the Banana.  The Omni is a fusion of Kelly Slater’s performance round tail designs with Daniel ‘Tomo’ Thompson’s modern planing hulls.  Probably the most user friendly of all the Slater Designs models and the best suited to Victorian waves.

Slater Designs Omni Slater Designs OmniBy all reports, the Omni performs fantasically in a broad range of conditions.  Its built in speed off the mark coupled with an uncanny ability to draw both long, smooth, carving maneuvers and extremely tight, radical performance arcs on the wave face  means it really gets it done in anything from pointbreaks to the peaky onshore fodder we had over the weekend . This design in the right dimensions should be suitable for most surfers of an intermediate to advanced skill level.
