Lost Short Round Surfboard 5ft 8 FCS II - White
The Lost Short Round surfboard by matt Biolos. The Short Round is the latest high 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 ShortRound'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.

That saying Make sure you have the right tool for the job could not be true enough. Having had a couple of typical winter sessions in waist/shoulder and head high waves. From the first paddle out on this board it ticked all the boxes, catching waves, speed down the line, drive but still loose in turns. Thanks to Ian and the guys at Boardshop they were able to put me on a great stick that has turned those average days into great ones. Strongly recommend giving them a call for a chat, got nothing to lose!
This board is cursed. Waves all through the winter and then as soon as I picked it up, a three week flat spell (at least at weekends)! Anyway, finally got a couple of 2 to 3ft faces last weekend. I'm 75kg and went for the 6'0, feels bigger than my standard short board but duck diving is fine so far. It does paddle well and carries a lot of forward weight when paddling in, which is helpful. Very stable but can still be turned pretty sharply from what I have seen so far. I reckon it will be ideal for what I wanted, U.K. Waves up to about 6ft with a late middle aged kook on board! Recommended apart from the cursed part.
Bought this board as my current board was becoming a bit battered and bruised. I loved that board so was worried about spending out big on a board that may not match It for speed, paddling and general feel. The short round surpassed my last board easily(and my old board is a great board). I took it out Saturday at coney beach, porthcawl, renowned for being gutless. It was off shore and the waves were head high. This board is absolutely flying!!! Gets into the wave easy, and is as responsive as you like.
I'm not sure I'd go out in anything over head with this board, and duck diving is a little tricky given its width. But small to head high it really is amazing. (maybe someone with more ability could handle this board in overhead, I can surf but I'm not ripping)
Best of all, with the 0% finance it meant not having to fork out over £600 in one go!
Very pleased with the board and the customer service. Did a custom order and there was a slight issue that was not boardshops fault, but they couldn't have done anymore to sort it out. This board is amazing, I wanted something that turned better than the wider tailed groveller/hybrids yet still paddled and caught waves well. An excellent compromise. Lovely finish.
