An all out, small wave, super fun, super fast, alternative to a longboard on those small, weak summer days. Wide nose, wide tail, flat rocker and wave catching machine.
It happens to most of us. We spend our younger years rallying against anything that stands in front of us, running rampant and causing chaos. Surf all day, rage all night and to hell with the consequences. But then society and, to some degree, conformity grab hold and tame our wild ways. Responsibilities rear and priorities pile up. Water time drops down, waist sizes inch up and life settles in. When you do get in the water, the last thing you need is more work, more grief and difficulty.
Precious time in the brine should be fun and easy. It shouldn't add to life's stresses and struggles. To help make every hard earned and precious session a success, we bring you the "Domesticated Series": Generous volume boards designed for having a good time... in your free time, and free you from the drudgery of every day dealings. Minimalistic curves and design elements that allow you to capitalize on and control that extra volume to your advantage, both in the line up, and most importantly, on the wave... translating into higher waves counts without sacrificing surfing performance on those waves. That's what The Domestic Series is all about... good times, fun and easy.
Designed in conjunction with the LayZboy, The Couch Potato is the extreme small wave version of the same general concept. It is wider, shorter, with a flatter rocker and a more parallel, yet continuously curving, outline than its big brother. Designed specifically as a small wave surfboard, The Couch Potato is essentially a grovel version of the LayZboy, with a noticeably wider nose, less entry rocker and a fuller forward foil, combined with a slightly wider tail.
The outline and rocker combine for a board that is crazy fast, yet still controllable and manoeuvrable in gutless surf. A waist high weapon that, like the LayZboy, can be surfed equally effective from both a centred stance or off the tail. Recommend to be ridden 2" shorter than the LayZBoy or the same size as Plank or Bottom Feeder.
Dimensions & Fin set-up:
The boards have 5 Futures plugs and are supplied with 3 Futures fins so you can use it as a thruster straight away. To use the board as a quad you will need a quad set of futures fins or just some future rear fins to use with the side fins of the thruster set provided.
Standard Polyester construction.
S Glass is a multi weave fibreglass cloth, this gives it more strength than standard "E" glass without adding extra weight.
Lost began in 1985 when Matt Biolos and a bunch of school friends were into snowboarding at Mt. Baldy, skateboarding at the Pipeline in Upland, and surfing in Dana Point. They weren't too worried about winning this football game or that contest. They were "team lost". Thus the name '...lost' scribbled on books, t-shirts, benches, tables and eventually clothing.
