Patagonia R2 Neoprene Socks

Patagonia R2 Thermal lined 2mm Neoprene Socks are a option well worth considering as the water temperature starts to drop.  These boots (or socks) are a great choice for those of you that don’t like the feel of wearing thicker, rubber soled boots – but still want to keep your feet warm.  Greater sensitivity & connectedness to your board is the name of the game and wearing a pair of these is really the closest you will get to not wearing any boots at all . These Patagonia R2 Neoprene Socks are made from durable, high-quality 2mm neoprene and lined with quick-drying, water repelling thermal polyester micro-grid.  So they are in fact quite a bit warmer to wear than the 2mm thickness might lead you to believe.  They have quite a minimalist construction which  gives you a close and precise connection to your board and a split-toe means that your foot won’t slide around in them. The textured, PU-laminated soles ensure excellent grip. Come and grab a pair instore or...

FCSII Carver PC Carbon

The FCSII Carver PC Carbon is one of our more popular fins with customers at Zak Surfboards.  This fin has an elongated/raked back shape which really helps you project down the line on wally waves, as well as hold speed through long arcing turns. The controlled flex that the carbon construction provides, ensures that this fin has a stable but positive feel to it – particularly in waves with a bit of push. The perfect fin for good days on the SurfCoast. People often grab this fin to put in their all round surfboard for good/bigger days here in Victoria or for their trip to the tropics. Although this fin is available in bigger sizes, Medium tends to be the go to size for most unless you are a solid build or have a board with a lot of tail area.
