Lost Surfboards V2 Shortboard EPS Epoxy (domesticated) Surfboard 5ft 11 FCS II - White
EPS surfboards use a different kind of foam (EPS) and epoxy glassing to standard boards. EPS foam is Expanded Polystyrene, non EPS surfboards use PU (polyurethane) foam blanks and standard glassing. The reason that we choose to run some boards in this construction is that EPS boards are 30% more durable than standard PU surfboards and approximately 20% lighter. This means they are more resistant to impact damage which makes them a great travel board where often getting a board repaired is difficult.
Here's what Matt says about the V2 Shortboard: "Starting with what I considered to be our best hybrid, the V2-Rocket, I stretched the outline into a pointy, yet conservative, nose and blended the Rocket tail into a wide-ish, smooth squash. The exceedingly low entry rocker, along with a continuous and generous tail lift, made for a board that paddled well and caught waves with ease, but turned tight and precise in the pocket. It features a similar foil and rails as its predecessor and continues to have slight double concave deck under the rear foot (which really 'locks' the surfer into place). My initial results on the first, 'Domesticated', version were so good that I ended up surfing these boards, daily, for months on-end, without feeling the need to hop back onto any of my so called 'cheater' boards". Assuming it would work for the team also, we instantly began downsizing the design to 'pro' volume, and got them out to the boys.
Assuming it would work for the team also, Matt instantly began downsizing the design to 'Pro' volume, and got them out to the some of the boys. Not happy with winning the VQS National Champs at Newport, Taylor Clark used his first V2-Shortboard to win both the NSSA Mens National Title at Huntington Beach and the U-18 US Champs Title at Lowers. Griffin Colapinto nailed both The U-16 US Champs, and the NSSA Boys Title at Huntington, on his first V2 SB as well. After these very exciting results Matt was keen to get the V2-SB under the feet of some of the top international pros. This resulted in Julian Wilson ripping on a V2 at the US Open, and Alejo Muniz scored his US Open victory on one as well. A week after the Open, Malia Manuel decimated a stacked field of womens WCT surfers at the SuperGirl 6-Star, at Oceanside on her first V2-Shortboard.
So for the everyday 'Bro' the V2 Shortboard is a real option for the guy that wants to maintain his wave-count but ride a 'proper shortboard'. Already the most popular shortboard from the Lost stable, the V2 SB works in a variety of conditions with plenty of glide and still the ability to make fast and snappy turns. For the UK and Northern European surfer the V2 Shortboard with the Domesticated dimensions will give you that little bit more float and glide that you need with the added handicap of a full wetsuit and boots, gloves and hood in the winter. This board is going to be massive!
