Lost Split Tail RV Review

What the Lost Surfboard site says about the Split Tail RV:

‘Features a fresh, fun, flashy tail added to a tried and true favorite. Nothing groundbreaking or earth shattering here. The Split Diamond tail has been growing in popularity among many shapers lately. I became interested in it as soon as I saw first them on boards like Tomos and Mandellas a few years ago. Adding this tail to the R.V. creates a longer, straighter rail line in the back half of the board….generating more drive off the tail. The surface area is increased, adding more lift, the notched out “split” gives a little bite and release to hold in and bleed some speed. As a fresh twist update to an already popular board, The Split Tail R.V. is as equally fun and squirty in small, connect the dot, gutless dribble as it is effective in high-lining and down carving arcs across long speedy walls.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Split-tail RV is great for small, gutless waves when you need to get across flat sections and also equally good when you’re doing down carving arcs across long speed walls.” – Boardcave.com.au

“The Lost Surfboards Split Tail RV is a board that defies typical description for a surfboard shape. The board is a semi-potato-looking-split-tail-hybrid that rips on pretty much any wave. It is equally as fun in small beach surf as it is holding the line across fast waves with steep walls. The vertically split two-tone colorway is also a welcome departure from your typical white deck.” – The Ride Review

“The extended 2015 Lost RV range is here, the first RV has & continues to be super popular, so the extra models are welcome news! The basic difference here is obviously the tail, this concept, the split diamond, will create more drive for the surfer off the tail end. There is even more surface area on this one, meaning it still is great for you in the junky surf, but will hold together a bit better on a nice speed run down some fast walls.” – Trade Wind Surf
