...Lost Mayhem Voodoo Child Surfboard
...Lost Surfboards “ VOODOO CHILD “ is Mason Ho’s debut Pro Model. Designed with creative input and feedback from the freest freesurfer known to man… The “VooDoo Child” is Mason’s mind bending blend of classic and contempory performance surfboard design elements. Mase likes effortless forward glide off the front foot, but demands instant release off the tail. This translates to a lower than typical nose rocker, a flatter curve through the centre and a generous tail rocker.
The Voodoo Child features a modern, cutting edge, hifi, concave bottom shape. along with plenty single and double concave cutting through healthy rail rocker, the deepest part of the concave is right thru the fin cluster, directly under the rear foot. This makes it easy to generate speed, and whip tight rail turns, still allowing controlled release for setting the fins free. A more parallel outline through the mid section (creates drive) that draws in rapidly to a pulled in nose outline. There is a bump/hip into a wide squash tail, which allows quick, rail to rail surfing, as well as paying homage to some classic lines from late 80’s surfboard design.
A slight double concave is shaped into the deck in the tail. This aids Mason in locking his rear foot into position (especially with Mason’s usual no traction pad purism) this gives the board a magic “surfed in“ feeling, from your first wave.
The very subtle 'Beak Nose' helps to carry a bit of extra foam into the nose (this helps with momentum, a touch of paddle power and reduces risk nose breaks) then rapidly thins out in a stylish and aesthetically pleasing way.
With modern rails (full, forgiving and tucked soft) throughout the length of the board, with a unique foiled down rails in the last 12 inches of the tail, allowing more volume to be retained under the rear foot for stability, as well as letting Mason to “knife in” the fuller tail block. All this leads to a balanced easy to ride, user friendly proportioned all rounder with post modern and retro chic roots.
