Seen the first one before, but an excellent second Vid that I've never seen before. It cuts just after the best bit .

Guessed it was British Columbia or similar - yes have seen the videos but never tired of watching them!!!

Those boats are way overpriced for what they are - trust the Yanks to glamourise them like the Hummer!!!

If you want a boat for surf you NEED one of these

Look in the gallery - not ALL their boats are so ugly!!!

Made in Wales - like most of the best RIBS - Avon being a classic example!!!

I thought Zodiac was a French Company? Ribs aren't even popular in the United States.

Now The Hummers

Yes Zodiacs ARE French - RIBs aren't popular yet but think they will be - will appeal to the "Hummer" set!!!

Hmm, yeah maybe the Zodiac will appeal to the "hummer" set. So what does my Avon appeal to? Can you guess what I drive?

errr, I always go off topic.... Anyways I drive a Mitsubishi Montero (AKA Shogun in the UK). Point being we "Yanks" aren't all about the bling bling. And just because Zodiac thinks they can market that CZ-7 doesn't mean we're stupid enough to buy it. Though there are those that buy the H2.

I think the CZ-7 might at least open up the American eyes to what ribs can do. I must admit I like being one of the few ribbers out here. Makes me feel special when I can kick a 21' powerboats ass with my 13' Avon rib.
