Lost Rock Up Review

What the Lost Surfboards site says about the Rock Up:

‘If a Rocket (or other hybrid) has become your favorite daily board, and you find it frustrating switching back to a traditional, pointy nose step-up board on bigger, crowded days …then this board is for you. Designed to be ridden 2-4” longer than you would a Rocket. The low entry rocker, flat deck and tapered rails (with a full forward outline) paddles through crowds and moving water, and catches waves with ease. The pulled in tail, combined with the aggressive tail rocker and a smoother, shallower concave, allows controlled maneuvers at high speeds on waves up to double overhead waves.’

What people think about it:

‘The lower entry rocker (nose rocker) is quite shallow and when really pushed in under the lip take offs felt a little difficult to control. If you are a really advanced surfer who likes later than late drops, you might want to ask to have some nose volume shaved out and additional flip to be added to your custom Rock-Up.’ – Real Water Sports Website

‘Looks like this is a great board for people who ride their Rockets as daily drivers.’ – Rocferd on Surfer Mag Forum

‘I just got one. a 6’1″. it definatly needs that little bit of push to the wave but really goes well down the line. You can throw your whole body into turns on this board. not a board that likes to go verticle, more carvy and hacky. holds really well when pushed. I have only got 1 session on it in real waves and it went great but I still have yet to really figuer it out. feels good though, real down the line racy board, floats and bashes well, but not a real slidy skatey board. Definatly a great board for the right waves but under chest high waves you are gonna lag I think. we’ll see as I get a few more sessions on it. Winter is comming thank god.’ – OCsurfman on Surfer Mag Forum

‘As a micro surfboard addict myself, I know how hard it can be to switch from your super fun, fat 5’2 fish to a super pointy 6’5 mini gun when the waves go well overhead. Usually, the conversion equals an adjustment period- rich with missed waves and sloppy turns, leaving you slapping your forehead as you paddle back into the lineup wondering why your surfing is so off. The Rock-Up was invented as a solution to this problem. A step up shape for people who love their small boards and don’t want to deal with a huge transition in foam when they need to handle bigger waves.’ – Adam Clemente on The Surfer’s View

‘The 6 4 Rock up has similar specs to my 6 4 hellfire. Obviously different type of tail and tail dimensions. I’m thinking maybe the hf is the closest fw board. I like the idea of the that fst mini driver though.’ – Bumper on Firewire Surfboards
