I bought a ZG a while back and I am totally happy with it. It is comfortable yet still performs. It is really fast on waves. Super easy to initiate in a hole. Poppy on the bow. maybe a bit too much volume in the stern but that maybe what helps give it some speed on waves and such. Sometimes it feels a bit too edgy and wants to get away form you.
Not sure if it will become the "thang" or not. Lots of other cool boats out there as well. When you go to your local play spot and someone takes a break ask them if you can hop in it and see how you like it.
