FOR 30 YEARS LOST SURFBOARDS HAVE BEEN DESIGNING AND BUILDING SURFBOARDS BASED OFF OF RIDER FEEDBACK AND DIRECTION.
From the earliest days designing for local hotshots, to decades of working with many of the world’s best surfers, performance surfing has always been at the forefront of Lost surfboards focus.
In the mid ’90s, at the advent of the modern “model” era, along with the “RNF” and “Tri-Fish”, one of their first models was the “Pro-formance Short board”. It was essentially the epitome of a modern high performance competitive surfboard of that time. Over the years, as sales and hype became more and more driven by alternative and Hybrid designs, focused primarily on helping average, every day surfers more easily enjoy their time in the water, LOST never wavered from their work with the top level competitors. From Chris Ward and Cory and Shea Lopez, to Andy and Bruce Irons and Shane Beschen. From Taj Burrow and Julian Wilson to Kolohe Andino and Carissa Moore and Tyler Wright … and beyond, they have consistently strived to supply the best surfers with the best possible equipment. In spite of the hip or the hype, wrong or right, day and night … the best surfing in the world is STILL being done on a modern, high performance, pointy nose thruster. Now, in their 30th year of building surfboards, they are stripping things down to the basics and launching, or should we say, re-launching, the Lost Surfboards “Pro-formance Series”. Starting with the models that their top team have been riding in International, WCT and WQS competition, they have completely revamped, refined and some what re-designed the Pro-formance Series POCKET ROCKET
and DRIVER. Painstakingly reflecting exactly what is under the feet of these athletes over the last year, each board is built directly off of a “magic” board from a top surfer, and scaled, size wise, from there. In addition to updating the shapes and sizing, they have re-envisioned an overall, subdued look of the boards as well. The boards are glassed using the same, performance proven, high end materials that they use on competition boards. The POCKET ROCKET is offered in both squash and round tails, and in “Pro” and “Bro” dims. The “Pro” dims are based off of what surfers like Kolohe Andino and Griffin Colapinto ride. The “Bro” Dims, are more generously volumed and proportioned, but not “Domesticated” or bloated. The rails have been slightly blended, to “hide the volume” of a thicker/wider board, and still be paddled and ridden by surfers of all shapes and sizes looking for a bit more help in the line up.
