The Zippo was specifically developed for Taj Burrow and the Surfing Life Tech board test.

Pure and simply the Zippo was built for high performance surfing in mind.

Based of Taj’s ideal day-to-day shortboard specs, The Zippo is performance oriented but forgiving enough for all surfers to excel with it under their feet. The Zippo features a combination of the best, most effective characteristics from two of our original favourite high-performance shapes (The Donny and The Grinder).

The nose entry is medium to lower for performance design, with a slightly pulled in tail that features an increased tail rocker. This results in a lively, responsive board that favours critical rail-to-rail surfing and will allow this kind of surfing in average to excellent conditions.

This increased tail rocker is perfectly balanced with a solid single concave running from nose to tail, shallower towards the nose and deep into the last third between the feet and fins, providing the Zippo with plenty of drive.

The rail is a slightly softer, boxier rail to compensate for the aggressive concave and tail rocker, giving the Zippo a perfect blend of forgiveness, balance and performance. The Zippo is built for critical surfing in all types and conditions.

Developed with the needs of one of the worlds best surfers in mind – the Zippo is a lively, drivey, smooth performance shortboard.
