ZAK RANGE
SHAPERS WE STOCK Zak Surfboards has a long standing relationship with our local surfing industry. In the world of manufacturing, new developments have lead to cheaper, offshore product, which decreased the amount of development in surfboard performance. But still, a core of onshore shapers still prefer to work closely with local surfing communities to provide unique product tailored to Australian surfing conditions. Zak Surfboards endorses and collaborates with some of the best onshore shapers and manufacturing houses. A great amount of our stock emphasis’ Victorian shapers from all surf points of the bay and coast. As well, some of the greater Australian east coast shapers continue to have a range of boards in store. The “Shapers We Stock” page is dedicated to Australian shapers and manufacturing houses. We hope it provides some insight to having a board that performs in our local conditions.
