Lost Black Dart Short Round surfboard 5ft 9 FCS II - Orange
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.
Matt Biolos' Short Round is his latest performance hybrid. In the fine tradition of the Rocket and its numerous impersonators, the Short Round bridges the void between these easy riding hybrids and your regular high performance shortboard.
The summer of 2014 saw the Short Round tested all around So Cal where it has more than impressed and created quite a buzz. The speed comes from the wider nose and low entry rocker, with a forward wide point and generous concaves throughout. The key to the Short Round's performance is the moderate but definitely not flipped up tail rocker, the double concave through the fins and the regulation, modern bump/squash tail popular in high performance, contest, small wave shortboards. This simple approach to the modern hybrid doesn't have any gimmicks, but there is a lot to be said for the old adage "less is more".
The Short Round has a lot packed in to its modest template, but don't be fooled, this is a board with a heap of built in Grin Factor.
