Inflatable Powerboat Racing is a high- adrenalin, high action sport with explosive wave jumping, tight competitive surf racing and high speed inland racing. The sport which was founded in South Africa in the 1980’s and has become very popular over the years around the world, with major events taking place in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and South Africa.

The Zodiac Inflatable Boat Club or ZIBC (as it is known) is the oldest club in the country and over the years has produced several National and World Champions. These champions are not limited to one class but in all three classes namely Modified, Pro Stock and Stock. We are based in Gauteng but our members make an effort to participate in races across the country so as to get experience in both flat water and surf.
If you are interested in being a part of our club - our doors are always open and you can be assured that our members will assist you be it with stories, tips and any help you might need. We can assure you that you will have as much fun off the water as you will on.
