Lost Black Dart Puddle Jumper RP surfboard 5ft 8 FCS II - Black Tail Dip
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.
