Lost V3 Round-It Review

What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the V3 Round-It:

‘A one-two punch with the V3-Squash-It. The “Round It” features a round tail behind the double bumps. The new tail shape, combined with a more relaxed central rocker and a reduction in concave throughout, makes the board more stable and controllable in punchy surf. Although it will easily handle larger surf, it is not designed necessarily as a step up, but more as an all-around, one board, war horse. With its still wide-ish nose, low entry rocker (and the high performance back half) it is a very predictable, precise yet forgiving board that is at home on head high Trestles crumblers, chest high dumping beach break, or overhead reef breaks.’

What people think about it:

We surfed our V3 Round-It in punchy waist to overhead surf in Cape Hatteras and Puerto Rico. You immediately notice the narrower nose, especially if you’ve been a Rocket fan since the OG version. It still has width beyond a shortboard nose, but the front foot doesn’t have the bullet nose curve of the V3 Rocket or earlier versions. This helps reduce the area and also the weight up front, both of which you can feel during your first sessions.” – Real Watersports

This board is a good all rounder, from small beach breaks and up to 4 foot indo. Great for fast down the line waves.” – Ashley on Boardcave

“The Lost V3 Round-It Surfboard is another tweak from the Lost Rocket series. I bought this board as a step up board for me during the winter of 2014-2015 and I freakin’ DIG this board, man. It’s got a radical single concave down the middle with an exaggerated tail rocker. At 6’8″ with around 45.5 liters, this board is the perfect winter board for me. Its got plenty of volume, low rocker and width under the chest so I can get into waves early

This board is Easy to paddle and surf in small or crowded conditions. The V3 Round it is a higher performance board, similar to the V3 Rocket except it has a round tail.” – Rider Shack
