Our best selling Lost Surfboard to date, the V3 Rocket is as near to a one board quiver as we've ridden! This is the latest in Lost's Rocket lineage, which has provided 'all time favourite' boards for countless surfers who have dared to stray from their 'high performance shortboards'.
With a medium entry rocker, and fuller nose width, the V3 gets onto waves easily for a board that can be ridden 4 to 5 inches shorter than your regular shortboard. However this slightly wider outline and nose foil, does somewhat disguise how high performance this board is, under the feet of a more experienced surfer. In fact on numerous occasions WQS Events have been won on stock V3s from the local surf shop!
The tail has a lot of design elements at play, which is one of the reasons why this board is often 'copied' but never beaten! The V3's double flyer allows for a straighter outline from the wide point of the board to the first flyer, this reduces drag and increases speed. However the flyers then quickly reduce the tail area of the board to improve response, with each flyer having a 'clawing in' effect through tight in the pocket turns. The 'rocket tail' which has elements of both a round and swallow tail, adds control and drive. A hyper flip in the last 6 inches of the rail, and a deep single concave in front of the fins, provide awesome amounts of speed, as well as a board that surfs seamlessly, straight up and down in the pocket.
