Lost F-1 Stub Review

What the Lost Surfboards site says about the F-1 Stub:

“All around competition short board. During 2009, as the F1 became a board of choice for many team riders, the low end limitations of the design were becoming apparent. Looking to make the F1 excel in smaller gutless surf, we widened and slightly lowered the rocker in the nose for forward glide (but kept the tail rocker the same). We increased rail volume and straightened the outline via a hip making the tail wider in front of the fins and at the tail block – adding drive, lift and tight radius pivot, but keeps same width at 12” for control. Coco Ho won back to back WQS events in Brazil on her magic F1 Stub this fall. Young Aussie Phenom, J.W., used an F1 Stub to make 3 WQS finals in a row and secure a late season push for 2011 WT qualification. Fine tuning and intensive RnD with top pros during 2010 has netted an F1 Stub that is a contest proven, quintessential, modern, everyday performance surfboard.”

What people are saying about it:

“Young Aussie Phenom, Julian Wilson, used an F1 Stub to make 3 WQS finals in a row and secure a late season push for 2011 World Tour qualification.” – Matt Biolos, maker

“High performance surfing the F1 Stub is best for intermediate to advanced surfers in small to medium waves. This model is for critical surfing and goes best in waves with some face the F1 Stub will turn on a dime in the pocket and can be surfed top to bottom with ease.” – Boardcave.com.au

“I ordered a custom F1Stub from Catalyst about 8 months ago. Got it as a step up at 6’3″ x 19″ x 2 3/8″. It’s foiled so right and the rocker profile is insane. Can’t miss.” – User Fresnoripper on Surfermag.com
