Lost V2 HP Review

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

‘A souped up, slimmed down, minimalist, high performance machine. Designed purely with feedback from skilled competitive surfers. Soon after getting the V2-SB under the feet of athletes, feedback started coming in. “It’s amazing, but…make me one that’s more HP..like a Whiplash or F1-Stub”. Working with Grom Phenom, Griffin Colapinto, and fast, light footed pro, Evan Gieselman, we started by importing a Whiplash type of outline onto the V2SB. Looking for more curve, we added nose rocker only in the forward 12-18” (Freeing it up in nose picks, tail first landings and radical direction changes). The rails are bit lower than the V2 and the concave in the tail more shallow…lending more control at high speeds and better to surf on a rail. All this combines for board specifically suited for above average surfers who want performance, unhindered by un-needed bulk or excess volume. Since its inception many WCT and WQS Athletes have adopted it as their go-to fave. Travis Logie, Coco Ho, Malia Manual, Balaram Stack, Luke Davis, the Gieselman Bros and a host of WQS Warriors, and amateur Supergroms like Griffin Colapinto and Kei Kobayashi use the V2-HP as their weapon of choice in most anything above 2’ dribble.’

What people are saying about it:

“The V2 High Performance is a great board for those surfers who are above average and want a sleak, lightweight performance board. Performs well in just about every wave size and great for nose picks, harsh direction changes and tail first landings.” – BoardCave.com.au

“This board is a perfect high performance stick, that is built to impress. The V2 HP is a board made up of feedback from serious competitive surfers. These guys were loving the V2 Shortboard, but wanted something that was more like the F1 Stub or Whiplash. Fusing the Whiplash outline on to a V2 Shortboard & increasing the rocker, the idea of this board is to have a performance board strictly for that, performance, no excess volume or baggage.“ – TradeWindSurf.com.au

“It’s a V2 with extra meat. Full-bodied and designed for “Domesticated” types, but this rip stick is shred ready. The entry rocker is low, while the tail is high, and wide for extra drive, lift, and stability. Make sausage out of mushy waves, then drink beer.” – SeasideSurfShop.com

“Been riding a stock 6’0 (27.6l) HP for the last few months as a step up for 3-4 ft surf (southwest oz head to ceiling high) from a 5’10 sub buggy which I use for small waves. It’s a direct replacement for my stock 5’11 V2SB so it’s been great to compare….the narrower tail and nose, shallower concave in the fin area ( with faint double) is more precise and controlled when carving at high speed as well as more critical Pocket work, the lower rail curve in the tail (less concave) compared to the V2SB and increased entry curve just gives the board a real balanced feel…. Not searching for the curve on the back 1/2 of the board so much in turns – more smooth, even, full length of the rail type of feel. It has a lot less deck roll in the back half of the board giving a fuller rail on the front fin area.” – CP1970 on SurferMag.com
