Lost Whiplash-TB 2015 Review

What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the Whiplash-TB 2015:

‘Designed specifically with input and feedback from legendary high performance icon, Taj Burrow. This collaboration stems from the work done to satisfy TBs needs for his trademark brand of razor sharp and explosive, cutting edge surfing. With two World Tour wins (Snapper Rocks and Steamer Lane) in our first full season (2012) of working together, the results more than speak for themselves. Using the classic “Whiplash” model as a starting point, this board has now become the most refined and streamlined design in our line. Originally of TBs winning board from the 2012 Quiksilver Pro (Snapper Rocks) This board has been continuously refined and updated since. This 2015 edition features subtle tweaks based off of Taj and his feedback over the last 12 months. The rocker and outline both have an aggressive, continuous curve , cutting out all the unneeded surface area, thus no hip or bump in front of the fins that most of our boards feature. The nose, while not as needle or narrow as in the past, is still pulled enough to not get in the way of TBs fast and critical, tight radius turns. Although not for everyone, this board is relatively easy to ride and is best for younger and fit surfers who are above average, have no problem creating their own speed, and surf regularly in punchy beach or decent quality point breaks and want to surf as critical and radical as possible. This board will not be stocked, but is a Custom order only, model.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Whiplash has a lot of rocker. Rocker slows down your surfboard as it moves across the water. But it’s necessary to have rocker if you want to fit in the wave and arcing turns. It’s not very wide, which makes it more responsive and easier to get from rail to rail. The rails don’t have a lot of volume, so it’s easier to sink the rail and really dig into your turns.” – Stevie from hostevie.com

“This board is not one of those ‘paddles well’ high volume boards with flat rocker and boxy rails. The board has continuous rocker with a really refined template. This board will literally do whatever you want but you need to be paddle fit and capable of generating speed on your own. If you are after a high performance shorty for good quality waves and want to rip then this is the board that might just change your life!” – zaksurfboards.com

“Picked up my Lost Whiplash a few months ago. I’m so happy. This board is fantastic. I have a 5’7” and it is great. It is hard to explain, but I feel like this board has helped me improve in performance. It really allows you to go from rail to rail fast and smooth and I can also surf this board at two foot Malibu, or overhead Trestles. Great board. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to move to a high performance board.” – bonktripletoss on YouTube

“Designed to be at it’s most comfortable right in the pocket of steep waves from waist high to well over head. The weapon of choice for rippers and fast snappy surfers.” – boardshop.co.uk
