…Lost Pocket Rocket

We now have the …Lost Pocket Rocket hanging on our racks in store at Zak Surfboards.  Matt ‘Mayhem’ Biolos’ latest high performance shortboard design, the Pocket Rocket has primarily been developed with WSL surfer Kolohe Andino. Ready to change the bottom curves under his feet, this shortboard that Kolohe & Matt designed has a moderate even, continuous rocker, without any distinct flips or breaks.  In particular, there is more curve in the center of the board without the usual kick that Kolohe generally favors in the tail.  This new curve that they have come up with has really allowed Kolohe to approach the critical part of the wave with more aggression and most importantaly, without losing speed and drive (check out his form at Snapper 2016 on this new model). To make sure the rider maintains lift and speed, Matt has also deepened the concaves in this model somewhat from what Kolohe normally rides.  The end result is a great  high performance shortboard with built-in drive that won’t shy away from critical sections.  Although designed for a pro, this design does have a touch more volume than many high performance shortboards and a little extra surface area to keep you planing.  It probably can be ridden quite successfully in the right dimensions by those of us that aren’t quite at pro level yet 😉 Designed to be responsive and...

JS Industries Air17 now in store

We have the JS Industries Air17 now in store at Zak Surfboards.  This model has been developed by Jason Stevenson in collaboration with Julian Wilson to facilitate a progressive approach in everyday waves. What makes this board quite unique is the larger than usual sweet spot through the central part of the board.  This sweet spot makes it relaitvely forgiving to surf than many other performance short boards.  Added thickness under the front foot  coupled with deeper concaves make this board very quick off the mark- providing drive and acceleration right from take off.  The combination of this extra thickness and larger sweet spot helps you hold speed through turns and maintain it throughout the whole wave.  Helping you to flow through maneuvers with ease, and connect the dots from the start to the finish of the wave, even in more marginal conditions. The rail shape of the Air17 is a somewhat softer, medium to full rails than many performance shortboards. This model also has a somewhat flatter rocker through the middle of the board with more flipped sections in the nose and in the very last bit of the tail to accomodate quick direction changes and release when needed. Despite being a pro model, the AIR 17 in the right dimensions should work quite well for a number intermediate to advanced surfers in a variety of conditions.  I...
