Matt Biolos Says:
The V2 has a bit less tail rocker, with less concave through the fins, which creates a faster rail line under foot.
I actually deepened the concave out of the tail as well. The soft wing helps retain quick redirection off the top and bottom... and lend more control in the bowl. To tell you the truth, I moved the points of the diamond up a bit and made the angle closer to the Stealth tail, but haven't finalized this 100%. The nose rocker is bent up more in the last 12" (to balance the lower tail rocker and keep from poking) and the concave is brought further forward (to compensate for more nose rocker and also further elongate the rail line for more front foot drive) to help with even faster out of the gates rides. The tail is sculpted in a more pronounced way, adding a touch of double concave under the rear foot, as well as a low, square and boxy tail rail. I also made the nose a touch wider in the 12-18" mark. Overall, an easier board to ride for an average surfer in sub par waves. It has more down the line drive and a bit less skateboard kick tail feel.
The Rocket was one of the most popular boards around the world in the last 5 years... one of the most well known and knocked off surfboard models in recent memory. It obviously has merit and worked well for thousands of surfers, but there is always room for improvement. I used the feedback from the average Joe to update and refine what was not broken.
The original Rocket will always be available from us as well. This doesn't replace the Rocket - it compliments it.
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.
QHello friends, the volume of the surfboard seems a little bit high. I have a equal model made in Olatu, and the volumen written below is a measure of 25.46 liters to 5.6 x 19 x 2.18. I love your website, regards.
AHi, the dimensions of this board have been taken from the shapers measurements on the board itself.
QIs the volume of this board correct? It seems a little high.
AThe volumes for the boards are taken from the hand written dimensions on the bottom, we have double checked them and can confirm the volume you see on the web site is the same as on the board.
