5 out of 5 stars

Essentially the same board as the Puddle Jumper Squash but with a round tail, giving a little more top end performance in faster, punchier waves.

Product Details

The Lost Black Dart Puddle Jumper RP surfboard has arrived!

That's right, just when we thought surfboards couldn't get any better looking, Lost have worked with Drew Bagget of Inspired surfboards to tweak, fine-tune and subsequently licence his awesome looking and performing tech.

BlackDart surfboards are constructed with a virgin 1.5lb, stringerless eps blank with a deck completely wrapped in a unique woven Carbon/S-Glass hybrid "BlackDart" material.

This BlackDart fabric is unique in the fact that the carbon fibres run "uni-directionally", in other words running from nose to tail of the board with the S-glass fibres running rail-to-rail. This layup creates a more natural flex pattern different to the associated stiffness of bi-directional carbon fibre cloth and even less prone to creasing or snapping. BlackDart surfboards still have that electric, "alive" feel with that signature return when you really engage your back foot. The carbon/S-glass wraps right around the rails and is backed up by 4oz cloth which is doubled up giving a durable 8oz covering to the bottom.

Should you ding your BlackDart surfboard, don't worry too much, It's easily repaired with any standard Epoxy/Solar Epoxy repair kit.

Tech aside, this fabric takes colour beautifully, supporting a wide range of pigments and tints which contrast with the carbon resulting in a stunning looking quiver.

The Puddle Jumper RP (rounded pintail) is essentially the same surfboard as the Puddle but with a round tail. Why bother you might think, well the idea is to give the board more top end performance in faster, punchier waves. So many people love this board and want to surf it in everything, the addition of the round tail with a little more rocker makes this possible. You might well choose a board size 1-2" bigger than the squash tail version if you are intending to surf it in bigger waves. The Puddle Jumper unlike the previous Domesticated boards like the RV and Bottom Feeder, features a concave bottom that transitions into Vee out through the tail. The wide template makes wave catching simple and maintain down the line glide and stability. The introduction of the concave increases lift and along with the pronounced rail curve lends itself to top-to-bottom, rail-to-rail surfing. The relatively straight rail line and Vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and able to hold in when executing hard carving manoeuvres. "This is the best small wave board I have ever ridden. I have never made a claim like that about any board before" Matt Biolos.

Boardshop is super-stoked to have been chosen as a key retailer to head-up the launch of Lost BlackDart to the European market and we're also more than happy to consider taking your old board as a trade-in against one of these beautiful boards.

puddle jumper rp
This is the 4th puddle jumper I've had the last were all different sizes squash tails. 2 carbon wraps and one pu. all the boards are the fastest loosest boards I've ever ridden. believe the hype about these boards particularly in the carbon wrap/black dart constructions as it really makes the board feel faster and quicker in turns. I feel I do my best surfing on these boards. I got the rp now with a little more volume and length for the slightly better days and it is every much as good as the others. if you want to enjoy your surfing when its anything from knee high to head and a bit but not too steep then get one. AMAZING BOARD!!!!! Great job Boardshop
Puddle jumper RP Black dart
The Puddle Jumper RP is the best all round board ive ever ridden.46 years old solid intermediate (sometimes !!) surfing for 30 years and been through dozens of boards.Full on standard short boards are a distant memory ! but been enjoying the hybrid revival for last 10 years. From great fish style boards from local shapers to loads of firewire models as the trends have changed,and more forgiving templates have become available and made surfing more fun generally for your day to day average surfers.Having had a couple Lost Quiver Killers for Trips away i was looking for a slightly more forgiving UK all rounder for more average surf and liked the look of the Puddle jumper.Ian from board shop mentioned Lost had just introduced the RP version that would sit perfectly below the Quiver killer handle average conditions well but go great as the waves turned on more.I went for the 6'2 at about 42 ltrs and was a bit concerned about that much volume as my previous highest vol was 37 ltrs but Ian assured me that at 13.5 stone the 6'2 would be fine.Firstly it duck dived absolutely fine and didn't feel corky at all,and paddled around and into waves so easily.( ive probably been under volumed for a few years in hindsight ) But i was shocked how fast and smooth and forgiving it was in average surf,but loved the fact that in clean better waves it just got better and better.For an average surfer who has a comfort zone of say waist high to 1 x 5 overhead the Puddle Jumper with the RP has never lacked anything and is defiantly the fastest smoothest and fun shape but with solid performance on tap if needed board ive ridden.So much fun in everything that your average surfer would take on and made my Quiverkiller redundant due to the fact that with the rounded pin i surf the Puddle Jumper in every thing i surfed the Quiverkiller in,but get into waves much earlier and get more waves.Would have no hesitation taking the RP version on a trip to the Maldives instead of the Quiverkiller next time as the RP template with its paddle speed for early entry and few profile tweaks it had over the squash tail version would absolutely love those lined up walls.
The Black Dart tech is the icing on the cake,and Ian's insistence that its a brilliant tech with a lovely super fast smooth feel thats strong and durable but doesn't feel stiff was spot on.
A Brilliant all rounder in my opinion try one !!
