Lost Plank Review

What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the Plank:

‘When it’s really small and mushy you can forget the long board. Originally inspired after trying a friend’s “Mini Simmons” twin keel, retro board in knee high lumps. The board was fast and fun, but I couldn’t really lay into it. Motivated to do better, I hand shaped a “Green Foam” recycled fish blank and attacked the 6’0″ blank like a high school sculpture project…. keeping in mind the unique glide of that “Simmons”. The blank was pretty thin, so I left the deck flat. It’s really wide, so no concave. Looking for ridiculous glide, but demanding aggressive turning, I left it really straight rockered, but did a little flip out the back. I made it a strong bump, diamond tail. In place of the twin keels, wanting a more reliable feeling, I chose to make it a quad, and used a Future Fins solid glass fin we have been playing with as the template. That first “Plank” was about 6’0″ x 22″ x 2.5” full, and was the easiest board I have ever ridden in waves I would normally only bother with on a long board. The “Plank” catches anything and does full rail roundhouse cutbacks on 10″ high lumps of water. If you like the way it looks, and want a truly unique and extreme small wave tool to keep you off that log, then think about custom ordering one of these. I guarantee you won’t be let down.’

What people are saying about it:

I am riding a regular plank. With that said, it’s tons of fun. Also, despite how big and how much foam there is, it’s very loose and easy to turn. I still amaze myself on how easy it is to turn/tight turns I can do on a board of that size when I get my back foot in the sweet spot. Absolute blast in waist high and under waves that you wouldn’t want to ride a shortboard in. I’ve ridden it at chest-head high san O and it was fun there as well.” – User Tacos on surfermag.com

The integrity of the board and its deck is impeccable. This board is made for gutless surf and to fly through the flat sections, but is responsive and can be laid on a rail at ease. The board is nice and flat through the nose with sing V concave on the belly of the board that goes into a double concave by the fin boxes to allow for easy rail to rail transitions. This board is super fast when paddling and catches waves with ease.” – User newenglandsurfer on Swell Info

My Lost Plank was the first good groveler I ever had and is still a blast to ride. You don’t think they change the new models that much until you go back to the OG Plank and compare it to the newer RV’s, etc. After three solid years of riding this board, the deck is nice and soft, with the stringer sticking up for some solid arch push in the turns. It’s awesome!” – realwatersports.com
