Lost V3 Rocket Surfboard C3 Carbon Cork 5ft 8 FCS II - Green Detail
The V3 is an extension of the Rocket Collection, and since it's release in 2014, it has rapidly become a huge success, a retail sensation and a custom order favourite.
A broad spectrum of surfers, from the average guy to the seasoned travelling pro, have all been stoked with the V3. The word spread and the desire grew. All sizes of the V3 were being ridden, from Matt Biolos’ very own 41 litre 6ft 0, "go-to", every day board, to Luke Davis' WQS winning 23 litre 5ft 4, the variation is huge, so its clear the V3 is an awesome hybrid suited to just about any ability and size of surfer.
After two years of technical and aesthetic R&D from Matt and his trusted team at Lost, the patented C3 Carbon Cork constructed surfboards have emerged.
Team this unique and immaculate construction with the latest Lost models and you've got a board that resembles nothing else available today!
Construction starts with a lightweight stringerless eps blank, hand finished in the regular way. The deck and rails are then vacuum wrapped with the exclusive uni-directional, carbon fibre cloth. This carbon fibre runs from nose to tail and is held together with an "S" glass fill running across the deck.
Next the sustainably sourced Cork (Lost purchase thier Cork from Amorim, a 100 year old Portuguese company with a surfing chief exec! The cork is harvested every eight years from protected trees) sheeting is vacuumed to the deck, naturally damping vibration and giving a very smooth ride. The exposed cork deck has no fibre glass covering, but when vacuumed to the carbon the C3 process sucks the resin right through the cork, bonding it to the deck. Any surplus resin is then sanded off leaving the beautiful raw cork to stand on. Once wet the exposed cork becomes naturally grippy and gives a lovely smooth ride.
The more high performance boards in the C3 line-up don't have cork at the tail allowing for an after market tail pad to be applied.
The bottom of the C3 boards are glassed with layers of 4oz Warp Glass which neatly overlaps the Cork on the deck permanently bonding it to the rails.
All the C3 boards are beautifully detailed with coloured pin-lines which match the logos and the deck logos are hot-iron branded into the cork.
Durable and achingly beautiful surfboards.

Overall Customer Rating
Martin (reviewed 25/07/2016)
Love the construction, didnt want to get the board wet, she is a real looker. I'm not sure how easy it will be to repair if I ding it or how long the cork deck will last. One thing I am disappointed in, I had to wax the board, albeit only lightly. One of the primary reasons for the purchase was not having to get the wax out, so for that I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 stars.
Delivery by Boarshop was excellent, packaging couldnt be faulted. Shame I couldnt say the same about the Portuguese courier who left it in the back of his van for 3 days!
