Lost V2 Grinder Review

What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the V2 Grinder:

‘Short n wide…with tons of glide. The “V2-Grinder” is a V2-SB squished into a stubby, squatty little firecracker. First built for a few of my “Domestic” buddies whose surfing can be described as “ former pro level, now grown up, with kids and a job, surfing crappy beach breaks with my kids…whenever I get a chance”. Pleasantly surprised by rave reviews from the older, local heroes, we placed a few under the feet of some WCT and QS “Grinders”. Ends up, the board is a superb small wave contest machine. With the likes of Carissa Moore and other world class competitors using them in lackluster conditions to great success, we included it in the line. To the V2s distinctive low entry and noticeable tail lift, we married an outline that resembles the classic Sub Scorcher. The wide tail block provides drive, lift and a stable platform in meager conditions. The short rail line and healthy amount of tail lift (paired with full and forgiving rails) still permeate the water and allow proper rail turns in small, tight, quirky shore pound. Don’t be afraid to go Short n fat with this one!’

What people are saying about it:

“The V2 Lost Grinder is great for having a small, tight and mushy shore pound. Excellent to use when you need something in a stubby style with plenty of speed.” – BoardCave.com.au

“If you are looking for a super high performance grovel board or something to ride this summer without going to one of the “Domesticated Series” designs this is the board for you.” – FoxWaterSports.com

“This board works incredibly well in small gutless shore pound.” – ZJBoardingHouse.com

“The V2 Grinder is for smaller-to-average surf and the V2-SB is for average-to-excellent surf. There’s some overlap in the middle but basically the V2 Grinder is stubbier and flatter for better performance in weaker waves. V2-SB is the “highest performance” board between these two but only when you’ve got enough of a wave to ride an HP shortboard. For the average or poor days at your local beach, V2 Grinder is the way to go.” – Real Water Sports
