What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the V2 Rocket:
‘The V2 has a bit less tail rocker, with less concave through the fins which creates a faster rail line under foot. I actually deepened the concave out of the tail as well. The soft wing helps retain of the quick redirection off the top n bottom..and lend more control in the bowl. To tell the truth, I have moved the points of the diamond up a bit and made the angle closer to the Stealth tail, but haven’t finalized this 100%.
The nose rocker is bent up more in the last 12″ (to balance the lower TR and keep from poking) and the concave is brought further forward (to compensate for more NR and also further elongating the rail line for more front foot drive) and help with even faster out the gate take rides.
The tail rail is sculpted in a more pronounced way, adding a touch of double concave under the rear foot, as well as a low, square and boxy tail rail. I also made the nose a touch wider in the 12-18′ mark.
Overall an easier board to ride for an average surfer in sub-par waves. it has more down the line drive and a bit less skateboard kick tail feel.
The Rocket was one of the most popular boards around the world in the last 5 years…one of the most well known and knocked off surfboard models in recent memory. It obviously has merit and worked well for thousands of surfers, but there is always room for improvement. I used the feedback from the average joe to update and refine what was not broken.
The original Rocket will always be available from us as well. This doesn’t replace the Rocket, it compliments it.’
What people are saying about it:
“The Lost V2 Rocket is designed as an everyday high performance hybrid. With a little extra width through the mid section the board is naturally fast, especially on the front foot. It’s great for getting in early and increasing your wave count with the extra nose width. The V2 Rocket is an easier shortboard to ride for intermediate surfers in small or weak waves.” – BoardCave.com.au
“The V2 Rocket is an overall board designed for an average surfer to excel in sub-par waves. This board has more down the line drive and has a bit less skateboard kick tail feel. The Rocket has been one of the most popular boards around the world for the past 5 years and this is the newest version of it.“ – Swell.com
“The Lost V2 Rocket is an easier board to ride for the average Joe surfer in less than perfect waves. The V2 version of the Rocket has a bit less tail rocker, and a little less concave through the fins, creating a faster rail line under foot and Matt actually deepened the concave out of the tail as well. The soft wing helps retain quick transitions off the top of the wave and the bottom and give you plenty of control in the pocket.“ – BoardShop.co.uk
“The V2 Rocket has a faster rail line under the back foot as a result of a lower rocker and less concave. The board also features a soft wing on the deepened concave through the tail which will grant the rider the benefit of fast direction changes and more control through critical areas. The result of this design is a board which is recieved well by the average surfer in slacker conditions or a faster and snapier board for the experianced surfer.” – SecretSpot.co.uk
