Quick specs...

140x42.5
30cm at the tips IIRC
about an inch of rocker
a cm or so of concave
4.1kg with straps etc :-?
flex... stiffer in the middle, tips flex easily. Seems like "medium" to me :D
2 stance widths but didn't measure them. Inner one seems like a standard width to me.

Top is a glossy finish, bottom is 'matte'... if the 2013 Naish boards are P-tex base, this looks exactly the same.

There's almost no used market here, and by the time you factor in shipping... new is the most cost effective option - if you shop the sales or get lucky!

That is one stylish looking board. Well worth the extensive search. Can't wait to hear how you like it. It is also useful to have another definition of "medium flex".

I'm such a trend setter! :D

Actual think it's more like 2cm rocker...
Flex... also think it's stiffer in the center than I've used before, but the tips are more flexy. Will be interesting... I'll compare it to my Flydoor when I get the chance.

Yes, 2014 Z-series 133*41 delivered today ! :thumb:

The pads and straps feel really comfy and have a good grip on jour feet.

Looks awesome, now bring on some wind!
