Have been eyeballing this board for about 2 years now. Started surfing in the early 80's as a kid on a limited budget, read "only had one board." so learned to surf the hard way = on a shortboard. 40 years later fortunate to have a modest quiver: short board, hybrid and longboard. Winter surfing in northern New England with an extra 10lbs of wetsuit weight kind of renders the shortboard useless that's what made the Zeppelin attractive as it looked like a shortboard substitute fast and plus ready to float me/paddle with the added weight. I am 155lbs 5'7" finally pulled the trigger and grabbed the 6'4" from the rack at my surf shop. Took it out yesterday for the first time at my normal beach break spot was 1'-3'; the bigger sets were breaking outside and dying before reforming on the inside to be mostly shore bashing. I was able, on a few of the larger outside sets, to catch the wave, drive it nicely, great feel, fast, turns, control, and then 'bunny hop" it through the deeper water into the inside shore break for a few more turns and pull out. This is my normal surf spot and in all these years (~15) I don't think I have done that before, certainly have tried, but in that deeper water zone never was able to maneuver my boards over that area to ride it all the way in. I often think of my boards as analogous to automobiles, not that I have driven them all, but I see the Zeppelin as a BMW 5 Series vs. a Ferrari or big old Cadillac. I am surprised this board does not get more attention, I asked one of the 'youtuber' board review "experts" to review this and got a "that's not the kind of board I ride" response, which made me hesitant to go this route, but after yesterday absolutely not disappointed and surf report is calling for 5'+ in the next day or two, I will be riding the Zeppelin and might repost, just really stoked so far...current water temp 42 and air 19...brrrr.
Over 50 and finally found a shorter board that I can ride and have fun again. There are no sacrifices made in paddle or my wave count on my 7 ft 8. This board rips and turns so easy, I am so happy to be off the 9ft logs and riding my Zeppelin.
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!
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.
