Custom Designed Specialised Products

Up until not so long ago, both Stand Up Paddling and Surfing needed specific conditions in order to get the full experience. Enter the foil. Hydrofoil makes it possible to sup or surf in unexpected places. In other words, the limits are shrinking and the expansion of surfing is growing with exponential speed. We joined the foiling community by handcrafting both sup and surf boards specific to foiling without compromising the quality or experience that our community has become accustomed to. We strive for excellence when producing our hand-craft boards, which are suitable for hydrofoil(s).


At Zeal Surf, we believe in pairing the best with the best.

  • I was keen to start with stand up paddle board as a sport, but didn't have enough knowledge on the correct size/type of boards. Met up with Ian from Zeal Surf - and man, was that the best thing that could've happened. His extensive knowledge of the sport and product made the process very easy. I ended up with the most stunning custom designed easy glider. It was not just a good looking board, but a product with all the latest design features. Will definitely recommend Ian and his team at ZEAL SURF!!

    I recently bought a custom Rocket SUP board from Zeal Surf. I took a chance by ordering a board without ever seeing a Zeal board in the flesh. Ian from Zeal helped me design a board to suit my needs. He gave me as much attention and time as I needed and more. The designing and shaping experience could not have been any better. Ian did the effort (for free) to drop the board at a truck depot to catch a lift to Namibia. When the board arrived I was blown away. I have owned boards from most top brands and Zeal boards are right at the top. Thanks again team Zeal. Quality will sell itself!

    I ordered the Rocket SUP about 2 years ago and it completely changed my SUP experience. Super light and fast on the wave and my skill level improved very quickly. Ian was super responsive to my needs and great customer service all around. In fact when I fell and put a small hole in the board, he fixed it immediately. Cannot fault the board and only wish I had more boards 🙂 (soon to order a long board). Well done on creating a world class business here in Cape Town

  • Ian and the guys at Zeal have been brilliant, I was impressed with their friendly committed service and technical expertise. About 2 years ago they built 5 glass epoxy paddleboards for us. One of these surf SUP boards has been used as a demo almost daily for about 1.5 years. I have been really impressed with how this board has stood up to constant abuse from the average novice. I replaced this board's rather worn deckpad last week and I noticed that the standing area had no depressions or distortion. I highly recommend this business.

    Bought an Easy Glider SUP from Zeal. The board is light and super strong, and the build quality is amazing. Ian takes great pride in his boards for his customers and his attention to detail phenomenal. You can see his years of experience in composites being put to good use in the production of the Zeal SUP range, as well as the other unique carbon composite projects on the go in his factory for other customers. Always fun paying him a visit to see what is going on the factory.
