This is probably one of, if not, the best whitewater boats in ocean surf. This boat is a blast! I have a surf-specific boat that is much faster, but when the surf is less than perfect, the ZIP gets the nod. The added bonus is that you can buy a new ZIP for about half what newer designs are going for.

I tried this boat out for a day at a boating festival. I am about 6'1" and had been having trouble fitting in the other new playboats. The Zip was the most comftorable boat I have tried, with good leg room. I started doing my first squit turns immediately, the boat felt very good.
