New and updated for 2016, the Zak Tripod model is the square-tailed brother of the Zak’s other model the Siamese Twin. The Tripod is a great easy surfing all round shortboard – with its forgiving rails, low entry and exit rocker, the Tripod will have you up and into waves early with speed to burn. The Tripod has a touch more up and go in small waves due to its wide rounded square tail than the Siamese Twin, it also has a touch more release through turns.
A great paddler, the Tripod is sure to increase your wave count and get you onto the smallest of summer waves. Its boxy rails will prevent you catching an edge when the waves are weak but will hold its own in punchier and steeper surf. This board a very popular board to transition on to from a mid-length, hybrid or mini mal. Great fun to ride in average to excellent conditions 1-6 feet.
All 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.
