The Zeppelin is a hybrid that really likes to fly! This board is packed with foam and float where it counts,featuring a triple concave bottom, a full outline, low entry and low tail rocker. The grab rails provide for a thinner, more positive, feeling rail that allows for smoother rail to rail transitions. Taking off now!

  • Best board for me...great transition out of a long board...paddles better than anything I have been on.

    Posted by Joe on Aug 21st 2017

    This board just paddles amazing. I am consistently surprised by how well it paddles. This is my go to board these days...I absolutely love this thing!

  • Amazing combination of paddle power, ease of turning and speed.

    Posted by David Wood on Nov 24th 2016

    Wow! I'm riding a 7-6 Zeppelin and it (really!) turns quicker than my 7-0 fish! I'm 6-3 200 pounds - and I can paddle into waves very close to as easy as my 9-6 longboard - or I can do a late takeoff and it pivots quickly down the line like my shortboard. This board just takes off - its the fastest board I've ever ridden - and I can beat out lots of sections. The lightweight and high performance design have helped me to really improve my surfing as my wave count is much higher, yet I can still whip around on the waves. I find this is my go-to boards nearly every day. It works great in both gutless knee high slop and well overhead powerful waves.

  • My Search Has Ended

    Posted by El Jefe on Sep 22nd 2016

    I have been searching for years for a shortboard that paddles like a longboard, turns on a dime and is fast. I have finally found this board in the Rusty Zeppelin. I am 6' 2", 265 lbs and just purchased a 7' 4" Rusty Zeppelin, I can confirm that it does everything they say it will plus some. If you are a big guy and want something that paddles like a dream yet allows you to generate speed and turn well, then go get yourself a Zeppelin.

  • Custom Zeppelin by Pedro

    Posted by BKC on Sep 9th 2016

    Worked with Pedro on his CAD to customize my Zeppelin. 6'10" x 21" x 2 5/8. 43L. Did it with EPS and epoxy, 2+1 fin set up. Ride it all around La Jolla, typically 2+1 (6.5" center fin and side bites) or with single fin (8"). It's a dream. The best all around wave hog machine I've ever had. Works pretty much everywhere except Big Blacks when it's A framing. Places like Windansea, South Bird, Scripps, large PB Pt., it is a flowing, hacking machine. Stoked!
