JS Industries Monsta Box HyFi

JS Industries Monsta Box HyFiWe have a size run of the JS Industries Monsta Box HyFi on our racks at Zak Surfboards!!!  Topped up last week, the JS Monsta Box has been one of our best selling shortboards in store since its release.  Initially conceived to combine the best features of two of JS’s best selling models into one board (The Monsta & The Blak Box II) The end result was a new model that  worked for a broader range of surfers and in a much wider range of conditions.

JS Industries Monsta Box HyFi JS Industries Monsta Box Hy-Fi Collage 1This Monsta Box model has less rocker than the Monsta but a touch more curve than the Blak Box II.  The outline is more generous than the Monsta, but not as broad as the Black Box II.  The tail block also sits somewhere in between these two models with a nice hip drawing back into a rounded square tail.  A sweet single to double concave will give you plenty of lift to help you get up and running in quickly.

Advanced surfers will find this board a great choice for smaller, weaker, flat faced waves. The extra paddle power and speed you will get from this model compared to most performance shortboards will keep a smile on your face in more marginal conditions. A board that works well in the mush but can be surfed in decent waves as well – if needed.

Less skilled (or less regular) surfers will probably find this board a great choice as an all rounder.  One of those designs that does an excellent job of combining forgiving and performance elements.

JS Industries Monsta Box HyFi JS Industries Monsta Box Hy-Fi Collage 2The relatively new HYFI construction technology has been developed by JS Industries over the past 2-3 years.  Through a rigorous RND process, JS have come up with a patent pending Hybrid Fiber Diamond EPS construction (or HYFI for short).  It is a multi-layer construction that apparently feels completely unique underfoot – like nothing else out there.  The glassing process that they use essentially creates an exoskeleton that makes this surfboard construction lighter and significantly stronger than ever before, while creating the perfect flex to maximize performance…

Stacey Machine Head Restock

Stacey Machine Head RestockWe just got a Stacey Machine Head Restock  so there is now in a full size run hanging on our racks here at Zak Surfboards.  Recently added to added to their range – The Stacey Machine Head is Lee Stacey’s update to one of the most popular selling all round shortboards we’ve had in store over the past year – the 5150.  Designed to get the job done in 80% of the conditions the ocean will throw at you – the Stacey Machine Head is a fantastic addition to everyone’s quiver in the right dimensions.  Without doubt, one of the best balanced boards in the shop – put it under your arm and you’ll immediately know what I’m talking about.

Stacey Machine Head Restock Stacey Machine Head Collage 1The Machine Head design features a mid entry rocker for paddle, instant speed off the mark & carry over flatter sections. The outline is super easy on the eye, enough width in the right places and nicely pulled in where it needs to be for all round performance shralping.  This model has a single to double concave bottom with vee running out the tail.   The concaves have been specially tuned in this update from the 5150 to give an even bigger sweet spot.   This new bottom contour also gives this board a nice, safe & settled feeling at high speed and through critical parts of the wave, while still allowing enough lift to make it hold its own in less than ideal conditions.

Rocket 9 by Channel Islands

Rocket 9 by Channel IslandsWe have a full size run of the Rocket 9 by Channel Islands in store on our racks at Zak Surfboards.  This fairly new model for CI is quite the performer in a wide range of conditions.  What really stands out when you look at this board is it’s unique outline, it has a distinctly forward of center wide point  and pulls back into a relatively tidy tail.    Despite the pulled tail and relatively pointy nose this board has a decent amount of hidden volume – meaning that you can definitely ride it a fair bit smaller than your standard shortboard, while keeping your normal volume (or even opting for a touch more for extra paddle).

Rocket 9 by Channel Islands Rocket 9 by Channel IslandsRocket 9 Collage 1The medium, constant rocker that kicks in the tail, with a forward wide point and tider tail area means that this model is pretty comfortable in steeper sections and being turned in and around the pocket.  The medium but boxy rail allows you to push hard through turns on rail without the board squirreling out.  A fairly deep single to double concave bottom keeps this model quick and adds a bit of lift.  A touch of vee has been placed off the back few inches of the tail to ensure nice easy transitions from rail to rail and clean release through turns off the tail.

Stacey 6505 Round Tail

Stacey 6505 Round TailThe Stacey 6505 Round Tail is a performance shortboard shape with a bit of extra spark in the lower end of the wave range.  If you have been looking for a board that revels in small to medium sized waves, that still has all the spark of a high performance whip through turns, then this model is definitely worth checking out.

Stacey 6505 Round Tail Stacey 6505 Round Tail Collage 1One of the key features to the 6505′s performance is the finely tuned rocker.  This model has a lower entry rocker makes for easy paddling and glide through flatter sections.   The rocker through the rest of the board is also fairly low with a late flip through the very last bit of the tail which is the key to keeping it fast, loose and lively to turn.

A neutral single concave bottom has been used for it’s uncompromising speed.  This board really accelerates from the take off, ensuring you generates oodles of momentum off the mark.  Interestingly the concave continues right out the back of the tail (quite possibly the key to its extra spicey feel in small waves) helping water draw quickly though the underside of the board.

Stacey 6505 Round Tail Stacey 6505 Round Tail Collage 2The round tail helps make your turns extra smooth, it also helps to minimize any catching of rails and also gives the board a touch more hold in steeper, critical sections.  The round tail also serves to give this version of the 6505 a slightly bigger wave range than previous versions of this model.

We want Secondhand Surfboards

We want Secondhand Surfboards!!We want Secondhand Surfboards for our Racks!!

Our Secondhand Surfboard racks are getting a bit bare so we are on the hunt for used surfboards.  We pay $$CASH$$ for secondhand surfboards and do trade- ins of old boards on new ones.  We can also trade in old boards on other surfing gear like wetsuits, covers and fins (whatever other gear you need).  At Zak Surfboards we try to keep one of the biggest collections of Secondhand Surfboards on our racks in Victoria – our stocks are definitely a bit depleted at the moment after a busy start to the summer, so if you have any used or unwanted boards – we want them!! Shortboards, longboards, hulls, mid-lengths, mini mals, retro shapes, fish shapes, beginner boards etc etc we want the lot!!

If you have a board or boards that you want to move, simply bring it or them by the shop during opening hours and we can arrange the best option for you, right there on the spot.

Please Note:

Check out the FCS II PC Carbon

Check out the FCS II PC CarbonCheck out the FCS II PC Carbon fin range which we have full stock of in store at Zak Surfboards.  This relatively new version of this fin range features a whole new lay-up of carbon for each of the different templates.  This new layup serves to enhance their performance with a finer tuned flex from the base of the fin right through to the tip.   This gives each fin template a different axis point for flex enhancing acceleration when they load up through turns.

Check out the FCS II PC CarbonThe carbon at the base of the fins in the FCS II PC Carbon Range has been replaced with Innegra inserts, this gives these fins a more holistic flex along the entire length of the fin without sacrificing strength.

Check out the FCS II PC CarbonIMG_5495All in all the new fin layup of different materials creates a 3D twist & roll ​action which helps to better harness energy as you push against the fin. The result is more speed, a smoother feel through a turns and better response to the riders direction.

Check out the FCS II PC CarbonSome of the templates have been altered slightly in response to feedback from FCS team riders.  The end result is a range that  performs even better than their predecessors – available in store  and ONLINE,  Drop by and check them out!


…Lost Voodoo Child Model

...Lost Voodoo Child ModelWe now have the …Lost Voodoo Child Model in store hanging on our racks at Zak Surfboards.  This is the first Mason Ho Pro Model surfboard, designed by shaper Matt Biolos  with feedback & creative input  from Mason.

...Lost Voodoo Child Model ...Lost Voodoo Child Collage 1The…Lost Voodoo Child Model is a mash-up of classic and current performance surfboard designs. Successfully combining the forward glide & projection off the front foot of shapes from the 80s, with the quick turning & looses,  high performance demands of today’s progressive surfing off the tail.

The Voodoo Child has quite a unique outline compared to  most performance shortboards we have in the shop – with a fairly pulled in nose, that broadens into a fairly parallel outline through the center of the board (for drive), that then leads into a fairly distinct hip, finished with a wide squash tail.  This outline encourages quick, angular direction changes, particularly in and around the pocket which is evident in the 80s inspired lines that Mason likes to draw.

A beaked nose has been used in this design which helps to carry a bit of extra volume forward into the nose  which helps with glide and paddle power .  The beak design also allow the shape to keep thickness in the nose and maintain a flatter rocker line through the front end of the board (because you don’t  have to kick up the rocker from the bottom to meet the nose like you do in most contemporary designs).

Don’t let all this talk of easy surfing and all things retro dis-way you though, this is no retro craft -  The Voodoo Child is more than capable of any of the cutting edge lines you want to take.

MasonHo_brentbielmann286The Voodoo Child has a lower than typical nose rocker, a relaxed curve through the center and a healthy kick in the tail.  Flatter in the nose and middle for paddle, acceleration and glide – with extra curve in the tail for quick & responsive direction changes.   The Voodoo Child also features a very modern, high performance, concave bottom -with a generous single to double concave – the deepest part being between the fins under your back foot.   The curve and concave have been specially blended to easily generate speed, whip tight radius carves and allowing controlled release for tail free maneuvers.

...Lost Voodoo Child Model ...Lost Voodoo Child Collage 2The rails on this model are are modern (full, forgiving and tucked soft) throughout the length of the board.  The rails are foiled down in the last 12 inches of the tail, keeping a touch more volume under the rear foot for stability, while still allowing you knife into the wave face.

All these elements combine to create a fairly easy to ride & generously proportioned all around short board – definitely a pretty interesting model to look at, come in store and check the Voodoo Child and the rest of our …Lost Surfboards models in store or browse them ONLINE

Twin Fin Surfboard Models

Twin Fin Surfboard ModelsWe have a bunch of epic Twin Fin Surfboard Models in store at the moment at Zak Surfboards.  If you have been thinking about going twin there are quite a few different ones you can choose form hanging on our racks in store.

Twin Fin Surfboard Models DHD Twin Fin Twin Fin Surfboard Models DHD Twin FinFirst off and probably the most regular short board-like is the DHD Twin Fin. A super fun, user friendly shape that draws influence from the classic Mark Richards shapes from the 80s.  A great board for a variety of skill levels -  it is a shape that in the right dimensions will work well for intermediate up to the advanced level surfers. Bored with more conventional shapes? Something fun for average days? Love 80s twins but would love something a little more contemporary? Definitely check this model out!!

Twin Fin Surfboard Models - Zak Twin Fin Fish Twin Fin Surfboard Models - Zak Twin Fin Fish

Next up is probably the most traditional of the bunch – it’s the Zak Twin Fin Fish.  This model is Zak’s take on a classic twin keel fin fish design.  Plenty of foam up front for paddle power and float – this tapers down to a relatively sharp refined rail through the tail.  The finer rail through the tail keep you engaged in the wave face, providing much needed bite and control at high speed and in steeper parts of the wave.  One of the funnest boards you will ever surf, with speed to burn  and great maneuverability. A great board  to ride, in even in the weakest & mushiest conditions!

Twin Fin Surfboard Models - DHD Mini Twin Twin Fin Surfboard Models - DHD Mini TwinFinally & probably sitting somewhere between the previous two models is the DHD Mini Twin.  Designed as a collaboration between DHD team rider Asher Pacey & Darren Handley.  Based on a  classic keel-fin fish outline but bought into the present with some distinct modern tweaks.

The modern influence can be seen most prominently in the bottom contour of this board -  with a  slight single to double concave running through the guts of the shape with vee out the tail.  This concave into vee gives you a great combination of speed, lift and smooth, clean & easy rail to rail transitions. This shape screams fun and personally I cant wait for us to get our demo so I can take one for a spin;)

On a Twin Fin you’ll skate where others sink, carve while others crab – fun times indeed… come and check these models out in store or browse our full collection of new surfboards, individually listed & photographed ONLINE


FCSII Neo Glass Fin Range

FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeIf you’re looking to give your board a bit of extra Zip in the weak summertime waves then you should take a look at the FCSII Neo Glass Fin Range,  Made utilizing a unique combination of materials and precision engineering precesses developed by FCS to provide consistently accurate & predictable pro standard performance.

FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeFCSII Neo Glass Fins are manufactured using a 50/50 combination of long strand milled fiberglass with high grade industrial nylon.  This creates a light, stiff material that possesses superior memory recall to traditional fiberglass (meaning the material returns to a neutral position quicker once flexed).

FCSII Neo Glass Fin Range FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeThe Neo Glass construction adds a real bit of spark to your board in smaller or weaker conditions.  These lightweight, molded fins have a consistent lively, snappy and responsive feel underfoot.   “Twangy” would be a good way to describe these FCSII Neo Glass fins – they flex but snap back with quite a bit of energy, hence the zippy, lively feel.

FCSII Neo Glass Fin RangeRapid acceleration, quick direction changes and a very positive feel, especially in weak, mushy conditions.  Come check out the Neo Glass and the rest of our comprehensive range of FCSII fins in store or ONLINE

Superbrand Pug

Superbrand PugWe have a run of the new Superbrand Pug model in store at Zak Surfboards. New for 2017, the Superbrand Pug is a shrunken down cousin of the very popular PigDog model.  Specifically designed for fun times in small to medium sized waves – these things look like epic fun.

Superbrand Pug Superbrand Pug Collage 1The extra breadth has been added to the plan shape of the Pug resulting in a fairly a full outline with plenty of width in the nose and tail which gives this board extra paddle power and more glide over flat sections.  The Pug also has deeper concaves than the PigDog for extra speed and lift in weaker waves.  Unlike a lot of boards with comparable proportions, the Pug does have a fairly sporty rail and tail rocker for quick and lively turns on smaller wave faces.

Pug-Side-Clear Superbrand Pug Superbrand Pug Collage 2

If you are looking to up your small wave game but want something that still feels nice and responsive to turn, then the Pug is definitely worth checking out.  Check out the Superbrand Pug and the rest of our range of Superbrand Surfboards in store or ONLINE


Doug Rogers Shapes

Doug Rogers ShapesWe have a few pretty choice Doug Rogers Shapes on our racks at the moment at Zak Surfboards.  These beautiful hand shapes were made in Torquay by the master craftsman with close to 50 years shaping experience under his belt.

Doug Rogers Shapes Doug Rogers Shapes Collage 1Doug prides himself on making some of the best balanced shapes going round.  He focuses on how water flows along the bottom of each shape – making sure each board grips the face of the wave when it should, releases at the right time through turns, allowing you to connect maneuvers with heaps of flow, without losing speed down the line.   Beautiful balanced outlines and foils are the name of the game, nothing extreme, expertly blending all elements of the design together.

Doug Rogers Shapes Doug Rogers Shapes Collage 2The board pictured is a 6’6″ x 21″ x 3″ double flyer swallow tail – come in store and check this and the other Doug Rogers Shapes that we have or you can see the individually listed and photographed ONLINE


Top Up of the Pyzel Sure Thing Model

Pyzel Sure Thing ModelWe have just got a Top Up of the Pyzel  Sure Thing Model for our racks here at Zak Surfboards.   Specially designed to give an unrivaled combination of Performance and Fun, the Pyzel Sure Thing is the perfect addition to your quiver this summer or for year round fun in less than ideal waves.  This model has a full-figured, yet streamlined outline with plenty of glide to help you speed along in even the weakest surf.  It does still manage to feel pretty darn snappy, responsive and on point through turns though.

Pyzel Sure Thing Model Pyzel Sure Thing Model Collage 1The wide, fuller outline gives a nod to classic designs of the 1980s, most apparent in its subtle double-bump squash tail.  A fair amount of meat has been left in the nose, giving you a distinct paddling advantage with great wave pick up, heaps of lift and drive from the get go.  There is plenty of curve in the outline and the rocker has been expertly blended to match with a nice constant medium to low curve from nose to tail.

The Pyzel  Sure Thing has a fairly deep single concave for lift and speed which then runs into a gentle Vee out the tail.  A pair of “Gas Pedal” channels have been placed between the fins in the last 9” of the tail for added projection and drive, while allowing for a nice tight turning radius.  Even though this shape has a fair bit of extra foam & float to it, the rail thickness has been kept fairly moderate, which keeps this shape nice and responsive, ensuring the quick reaction times required in smaller waves.

Chilli Nevada Model

Chilli Nevada ModelWe currently have a full size run of the Chilli Nevada Model on our racks at Zak Surfboards!!! This recent addition to the Chilli Surfboards line-up is a high performance all-rounder that by all reports slays it in our local waves down here in Vicco.

Chilli Nevada ModelChilli Nevada Model Collage 1The Chilli Nevada Model has been designed to be an easy board to transition onto from your small wave shorter/wider boards. Described as a somewhat forgiving high performance shape, this model catches waves easily, carries through dead sections with a very positive and responsive feel through turns. What’s more the Nevada does all this with a great balance of liveliness and flow.

The key to this optimal balance of performance and easy surfing  is the distribution of foam. A touch of extra volume has been strategically placed throughout the whole board, nose to tail. James ‘Chilli’ Cheal has developed an new neat and simple feeling rail shape that allows for clean and easy carving while still retaining a distinctly performance feel. A rounded square tail shape has been used on this model with a touch more area for motor in mushier conditions, but still tidy enough to retain authority and control through critical manoeuvres. The rocker of the Nevada starts off a little flatter in the top third of the board for speed, gradually increasing through the middle of the board and continues steadily out the tail – again giving you a great balance of looseness and performance in steeper sections.

Chilli Nevada ModelChilli Nevada Model Collage 2The concave in this model has been finely tuned though a solid amount of testing with Chilli‘s stable of team riders. It starts under the chest medium depth and gradually shallows through-out the tail, giving you heaps of speed off the front foot and the perfect amount of release off the back foot through turns.

Full size run currently on our racks of the Chilli Nevada Model model – drop by the shop and have a look in person or check out our full collection of Chilli Surfboards ONLINE

DHD Mini Twin

DHD HeaderWe finally have the DHD Mini Twin in store at Zak Surfboards. Designed as a collaboration between team rider Asher Pacey & Darren Handley.  Based on a  classic keel-fin fish outline with a few modern tweaks.  The wide point is definitely front of center in the outline of this shape, the rocker is fairly low and there is quite a lot of volume forward, with a thinned our tail that has a nice sharp edge.  All these elements are very much in keeping with classic fish designs.

DHD Mini TwinThe modern influence can be seen most prominently in the bottom contour of this board -  with a  slight single to double concave running through the guts of the shape with vee out the tail.  This concave into vee gives you a great combination of speed, lift and smooth, clean & easy rail to rail transitions.

DHD Mini TwinDHD Mini Twin Collage 1AA beaked nose has been used in this design which helps to carry a bit of extra volume forward into the nose  which helps with glide and paddle power .  The beak design also allow the shape to keep thickness in the nose and maintain a flatter rocker line through the front end of the board (because you don’t  have to kick up the rocker from the bottom to meet the nose like you do in most contemporary designs).

DHD Mini TwinDHD Mini Twin Collage 2Designed with waves 1-4ft in mind – this shape screams fun and personally I cant wait for us to get our demo so I can take one for a spin;)  Come in store and check the DHD Mini Twin model out in person or view this and the rest of our range of DHD Surfboards individually listed ONLINE

Stacey Return Of The Jam Model

Stacey Return Of The Jam ModelWe have a full size run of the Stacey Return Of The Jam Model hanging in store on our racks at the moment.  The Stacey Return Of The Jam  or ROTJ is a specialized small wave model designed to motor where other boards struggle.  This model features a fairly flat deck which helps it hold some extra foam that provides more paddle, improved glide and stability under foot.

Stacey Return Of The Jam Model Stacey Return Of The Jam Model Collage 1The bottom contour is a sweet combination of concave for plenty of lift and speed with a decent helping of vee through the tail.  This bottom shape coupled with a fairly flat rocker and  wide tail block means that the ROTJ generates speed  easily in waves with very little push.  The vee through the fins helps with the quicker transitions that small wave surfing requires – making the board easier to roll from rail-to-rail and allowing it to draw tighter arcs on small wave faces .  The Stacey Return Of The Jam Model comes as standard with five fin plugs for versatility and is a very fun board for any level of surfer in the right dimensions.
