We had the pleasure of making a custom Rocket Fish for Ben Lynn and he chose an awesome design. The board turned out rad and we were stoked when he sent a few photos of him using his new board! He also included some kind words on his custom order experience:
Hello Zap team,
I wanted to say thank you to the entire team that worked on my board. From Naji helping with the order, to the shaper(s), the artist(s), and everyone else who had a hand in making this board a reality. Thank you!
I want you to know that the board exceeded my expectations. I love the rainbow logo’s, the black top, and how the purple and blue came together on the underside. The lines, the texture, the rails, I love everything about the board you made. Top to bottom, this board is awesome!
I added a Boomhower traction pad and arch bar combo and I hope you all like how that turned out. I decided to sand only the areas where the pads were applied and I’ll use wax on the other sections for grip.
I made a few drops with it and I love how it feels! Once I get the wax on it, this board is going to rip; with someone else using it of course! Hahaha. I’m barely past the beginner stage of skimming, so I won’t be pushing this board to its limits any time soon.
Before I skimmed with it, I did a photo shoot. I saw it as the once chance to capture the quality of your work completely unblemished from any skimming. I’ve attached some of the pictures from the shoot. I’m the happy owner of the board holding it with the big smile on my face! Haha. Your team spent a great deal of time and effort crafting this amazing board and I only hope that my meager photography skills do some justice to the talents that you brought into creating this board. If you want any high resolution versions of the pictures, just let me know and I’ll send them over.
Thank you for all the time and effort that you invested in creating this board. It’s an incredible piece of functional art that I’ll treasure for many years to come. Thank you!
