What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the Bottom Feeder:

‘Our latest board design for riding the smallest waves possible. A board that feeds and thrives off the bottom end of the wave spectrum. I was feeling held back a bit by the wide noses on the Plank and Uber-Plank, and wanted to make a board with more outline curve and no wings, something more elliptical. This board has a lower entry rocker than I have ever done and uses rolled belly to keep it from catching. The belly continues through the center but features a double concave sitting inside it. Which creates a tri-plane hull featuring a soft chine in the rail. This feeds water through the hull and gives it a feeling closer to a concave bottom board. The tail features enough rail rocker and hip to allow aggressive direction changes in tiny surf without losing speed. A am feeling outlines that are more and more clean, with less wings and fancy, trendy tail shapes. This board showcases that concept. It’s designed as a quad, but it can be made a 5 fin as well. I prefer it with Future Fin boxes and fiberglass “controller” fins.’

What people are saying about it:

The Bottom Feeder is a model which “feeds” on the low end spectrum of the wave sizes. It has a very elliptical outline, low rocker, high volume throughout the board, a double concave through the fins, and a slight hip above the tail. This allows the board to thrive in the smallest of the days thus catching waves easily, giving lots of lift/glide, has tons of drive, but yet still performs re-directional turns well. It is ideal for the above average to average surfer in the smallest days one would want to surf.” – Catalyst Shop

Clean, simple outline and more than enough foam to get you up and going on the tiniest of days, the Lost Bottom Feeder is a great, lively little groveler by the good people at Lost Surfboards.” – Compare Surfboards

The Bottom Feeder is a breakthrough design specifically focused on small wave performance. The Bottom Feeder is his latest machine for small wave shredding while other surfers are punching the water or complaining about the wrong tide. The Bottom Feeder not only makes small wave surfing a blast for the less skilled of us in the water, it also excels as a small wave ripper for advanced surfers too.” – REAL Watersports

The board is fantastic, can’t believe the float for a 5’8″, it catches everything, using the Nexus H-3 quad fins, it has a flat rocker but can still handle the drops with the rolled belly it has.” – Rob Hanlon on Magicseaweed

The Lost Bottom Feeder is one of those boards with a specific purpose in mind… getting the most out of the available waves. Catching waves on this board is a breeze. It just gets going so effortlessly in smaller waves. It can still handle a drop pretty well though because it’s got a rolled belly to stop it from catching.” – The Surfing Review
