Product Description

The Vessel Zephyr is a “must have” fun board.

The Zephyr is fast becoming one of the most popular hybrid funboards in the surf industry today. Its impressive shape will see you cutting through fat sections with ease, flying down the line with increased speed and precision and catching more waves then you ever imagined. 

Its plan shape is extremely unique with carefully thought out volume distribution which not only offers improved paddle power but also less drag and more lift to ensure your surfing can be taken to the next level. The plan shape has been refined and tweaked over the past year with the introduction of S*LAB’s Computational Fluid Dynamics testing (CFD). This technology has helped fine tune the boards shape to ensure maximum speed, manoeuvrability and surfing capability.

The Zephyr features a low entry rocker for wave catching potential, a wider outline for stability and control and an aggressive double flyer to rounded pin tail for which allows the board to hold tight through power turns. The fuller nose also puts volume forward, allowing for maximum glide, drive and wave catching.

The board is constructed using carbon infused cloth which covers the deck stand area and provides amazing flex qualities with extra drive when top-to-bottom surfing. The board comes with a 5 fin configuration and performs well as both a thruster, quad or even twin fin.  

These boards are awesome in all wave conditions and are extremely addictive to surf!

Best suited for Beginners to Experienced users who want forgiving, fast and progressive hybrid funboard

  1. Excellent Board

    Posted by Sean on 2nd May 2018

    For anybody who loves a hybrid the 2018 Zephyr is a very decent little board. This board is LIGHT but with enough fatness to make paddling a breeze and it’s still super easy to duck dive. I am 5’11.5” and 82kg so got the 5’10 at 34L and this was a perfect fit for me. I’m using medium fins in thruster config. I wouldn’t even bother with the quad personally. This board can be ridden pretty aggressively and can manage some fairly tight manoevres on 1-6ft days. The biggest let down for me is the FCS 1 fin box. If you can over look this factor then definitely grab this board. For the price, this board is well worth it and actually looks more we’ll made than what I would have expected for what I paid.

    I’m giving this 5 stars based on the customer service and that I’m overall satisfied with my purchase. If asked to critically rate this board comparative to others in the same class I would give it an easy 8/10
    Cheers

  2. Great board

    Posted by Max on 26th Apr 2018

    Only have tested board in waist high waves, however it went really well. Great board for someone who is after performance but wants to surf waves that your usual performance board would struggle in. Also seems a great allrounder for a heavier person.

  3. In love

    After my first surf on the Zephyr, i said to my wife I'm in love with someone else. So easy to paddle and manoeuvre, really fun board.

  4. Best Funboard

    Posted by Armand on 9th Apr 2018

    What an awesome fun board the Zephyr is! Received it within 2days and I live in Regional SA.
    Took it out for a surf for the first time on the weekend and coming off a 7'6 minimal, my 6'4 Zephyr was so much fun and so easy to paddle, duck dive and turn! Highly recommend this board for anyone looking to have fun and so easy to ride!

    Really loved using this board. Loads of fun had in lots of different conditions while on the south west coast of WA
