What the Lost site has to say about the Rocket:
‘The REAL board that started a Revolution! Originally shaped as a 5’3″ for Shane’s young son Noah by former …Lost shaper and pro surfer Noah Budroe. The board features a wide forward outline with round forgiving rails, flat deck and a wide “rocket” tail. The rocker is extremely low in the entry, for instant speed, with an exaggerated kick in the tail for tight arcs out of turns. An average wave all-rounder that can be effectively ridden 4″ to 6″ shorter, 1/8″ thinner, and just slightly wider than your normal short board without sacrificing any carve or drive.
Hundreds of imitations, but duplicated by none. Everyone deserves to have an original Rocket in their quiver.’
What people are saying about it:
“From average local beach breaks to overhead, fast, punchy beach breaks to mellower point breaks, I have found the …Lost Rocket to be the ultimate small to medium sized wave all rounder/small wave hybrid surfboard for places where the waves are average a lot of the time.” – Ben on CompareSurfboards.com
“Rode the Rocket in 3ft high mush on Rockaway beach yesterday and it absolutely ripped. Easy to catch waves, paddle, and move around. I’ve only been surfing for a year. Started on a 7’6″ funboard, then moved to a 5’11 couch potato (40 L) groveler, and just moved to a 6’0 (33L) Rocket. Amazing board even for small mushy stuff, can’t wait to try on bigger waves.” – Paul on CompareSurfboards.com
“I bought a used 6’0 rocket off craigslist and have been riding it for the past 2 months. I can’t say anything bad. I usually longboard unless it’s at least stomach high (which in Florida is rare) but even in waist high waves, i found this to be fun when we get a hurricane off the coast and its pumping (4-6), and yes, 4-6 is “pumping” in Florida. To put it short, I have gone through many, many shortboard, and this is by far the best board for every type of wave from waist to head high (and probably overhead, but I wouldn’t know…)” – Ian on CompareSurfboards.com
“I love this board. If I was going to have a one board quiver, it’d be a hard decision but I think the Lost Rocket would be right up there. This is a well designed surfboard and I don’t think you’ll find many that would disagree.
The Lost Rocket will surf everything from 1.5ft to 6ft pretty comfortably. Matt Biolos has really done us all a favour with this board. He’s packed so much versatility into the design and the board just has great performance characteristics.
The Lost Rocket paddles on really, really well but it’s volume is distributed very strategically on the board. You just don’t notice it. It’s fast, very fast.and it generates a lot of speed down the line and this comes in really handy when you’re trying to make a quick section.” – Surfing-Review.com
