G Board Package Deals

G Board Package DealsWe have some great G Board Package Deals for you this year at Zak Surfboards.  If you, your partner or your children are looking at getting into surfing this summer – soft surfboards are definitely one of the best craft to begin on.   We have bundled together all the gear that you will need to get started into a package price – which means savings for you!!!

G Board Package DealsLocal Torquay brand,  G Boards offer a great range of boards specifically designed to provide a safe, forgiving introduction into surfing.  These G Boards are one of the best riding and most durable soft surfboards available. Unlike many other products on the market, G Boards are constructed out of closed cell foam. If a G Board is punctured or damaged (eg by rocks etc) little if any water will be absorbed by the foam core (other brands of boards soak up water like a sponge if damaged). While a little more expensive, building these boards out of this material greatly increases the life of the board and eliminates the costly procedure of repairing you board to keep it water tight.

IMG_3966 (1) G Board Collage 1G Boards are also one of the closest soft boards in shape to a real surfboard. A curvier shape and tapered rail means that G Boards perform a lot more like a real surfboard compared to other products. As the rider progresses, they will be able to start learning basic maneuvers on a G Boards.

G Boards have earned the reputation over many years as being one of the safest and most durable pieces of learning equipment available – as a result, they are used by the vast majority of surf schools throughout Australia.

Channel Islands Mini

Channel Islands MiniWe have a full size run of the Channel Islands Mini in store at Zak Surfboards.  Designed in collaboration with team rider Kalani Robb, the Mini was created to add a bit more performance & versatility to an easy surfing, fun surfboard shape.  With an eye pleasing outline that draws heavily on classic fish shapes of the 70s and a few modern performance tweaks,  Channel Islands have successfully created a very fun surfboard that performs in a wide range of conditions.

Channel Islands Mini Channel Islands Mini Collage 1The Channel Islands Mini has a fairly relaxed or low rocker and broad outline.  This combination gives you ample amounts of speed & glide plus pretty darn good wave catching abilities.  A wider nose and extra thickness up front means that you can get you chest further forward on the board while paddling  – which definitely helps to get you up and into waves super early.

Channel Islands Mini Rocker ShotThe Mini has a fairly wide squash tail combined with an aggressive single to double concave bottom which gives this model heaps of board speed and lift – ensuring that you’ll be zipping down the line with ease in even the weakest conditions.  Fairly low rails combined with with vee out the last part of the tail means makes this board quick to respond and really easy to redirect – as a result the Mini is much more responsive to surf than the dimensions would have you believe.  Designed to have a blast in conditions ankle to head high,  the Mini is definitely one of the better boards to check out if you are looking to add a groveler to your quiver.

Chilli Miami Spice

Chilli Miami SpiceThe Chilli Miami Spice is a new model that we have in store this summer – designed to take your small wave surfing to a whole new level!!!  A shorter wider and flatter design with a double bump signature Chilli thumb-tail.  The flat rocker and width in the outline really helps with paddle power, wave catching, glide and carry over flatter parts of the wave.  The tail is a bit more pulled in than most small wave models giving the Chilli Miami Spice better performance in the pocket, allowing it to sit a little more comfortably in steeper parts of the wave.  The Miami Spice features a slight single concave between the feet for speed with a vee off the tail, for quick and easy transitions from rail to rail.

Chilli Miami SpiceChilli Miami Spice Collage 2A lot of small wave boards are super fast and easily generate speed in one direction – down the line.  Many of them tend to struggle in and around the pocket – mainly because they are too big in the back end.  The Chilli Miami Spice overcomes this issue by  combining a broader & flatter rockered front end, with tidier back end.  The tidier tail combined with a couple of breaks in the rail line (courtesy of the  double bump) gives you the ability to make sharp direction changes with ease and do your maneuvers in steeper parts of the wave.

Rocker Shot Futures bottomChilli Miami Spice Collage 1Full size run of these in both FCSII and Futures fin systems have just landed on our racks.  Check out the Chilli Miami Spice and the rest of our Chilli Surfboards range in store or look at them individually listed ONLINE

Channel Islands Sampler

Channel Islands Sampler We now have the Channel Islands Sampler in store now hanging on our racks at Zak Surfboards.  Are you looking for a board for less than ideal conditions but don’t want anything too weird or fishy that will change your approach? Then you might be wise to check out this new  Channel Islands Sampler model – developed with their team rider Dane Reynolds, this is a high performance step-down.   Intended to be  ridden a little bit shorter and wider than your regular shortboard, the Sampler will add that bit of extra spark to your sessions in smaller and weaker surf, with our sacrificing performance.  

Channel Islands Sampler Channel Islands Sampler Collage 1This model has a fairly flat entry and center rocker for speed, with a generous amount of curve through the tail for tight arcs on smaller wave faces.  The Sampler features a fairly deep single concave  that runs through the length of the board.  There is a touch of  double concave within this single as it goes through the fins which then flattens to a small vee through the last few inches of the tail. This model has a fairly full outline outline broken by  an exaggerated and slightly forward hip and a wide old-school squash tail.

Channel Islands Sampler Channel Islands Sampler Collage 2These features combine to create a board that motors into waves, speeds down the line and has plenty of lift in smaller, mushier &  flatter faced waves.  Unlike a lot of small wave models though, the Sampler is still able to draw tight arcs on smaller wave faces and respond like a normal shortboard. 

Come and check out the Sampler and the rest of our Channel Islands Surfboards range in store or have a look at them ONLINE

Surfboard Repairs in Melbourne

Surfboard Repairs in MelbourneSurfboard Repairs in Melbourne  – The weather will be heating up shortly, so it’s time to make sure that all of your surfcraft is in full working order and ready to go.  Here at Zak Surfboards in Thornbury we offer a comprehensive repair service for all types of surfcraft  right here in town!! We repair all polyester and epoxy fiberglass surfboard constructions – including brands such as Firewire and Hayden Shapes.

It is an unfortunate but inevitable part of owning a surfboard that dings, dents and de-laminations happen. Both in and out of the water, there are many causes of surfboard damage. If not fixed, over time the foam core of your surfboard will take on water, weighing it down, reducing its strength and buoyancy – ultimately hurting your boards performance.

Come by Zak Surfboards 307 Victoria Rd Thornbury Victoria 3071 any time during store hours to organize your repair with our staff.

Please note: We cannot quote repairs for you over the phone due to their subjective nature – please bring them in store and we can do one for you on the spot

*Most repairs if dropped in store on a Monday will be completed by Friday that week – more difficult repairs may take a little longer, particularly if the board is water logged or requires in depth paint retouching.
