New …Lost Surfboard Models now at ZJBH

…Lost surfboards has chosen us to be one of the first shops to carry their two latest models, the Bean Bag and the Puddle Jumper.  Matt Biolos, founder and co-owner of …Lost, was developing these boards over the summer last year and these boards reflect Matt’s ingenuity and ability to create shapes that work in special conditions. Basically, Mr. Biolos is crafting boards for any day of the week.

Let’s have a look at the boards we have:

Short Round

The latest high performance hybrid in the tradition of the Rocket, The Short Round bridges the gap between easy riding “cheater” boards and the HP shortboard.  Tested all around California in the Summer of 2014, this board has more than impressed with its low entry rocker, wide nose, generous concave throughout and a forward wide point.  All generating great speed.  The performance comes from moderate tail rocker, double concave at the fins and squash tail that would be found on a typical small wave HP shortboard.  Nothing fancy, no gimmicks… less is more with the Short Round.

Available in 5’6″ x 19″ x 2.3″ x 27.22 cl • 5’11” x 20 1/4″ x 2 1/2″ x 34.04 cl


Lazy Toy

Both a continuation and break away from the Plank/Bottom Feeder genre of alternative, fun yet performance minded, surfboards. The LazyToy takes these high volume/low rocker and neutral bottom curves small wave surfboard designs to a wider range of waves and a more versatile and diverse playing field. Using an elliptical , “double ender” influenced outline, the LazyToy is inspired by the boards ridden by guys like Wayne Lynch and Michael Peterson in the 1970’s…as well as Dave Parmenter in the 80’s and 90’s . These elliptical, continuous curve, outlines combined with proven rocker and bottom curves create a board that has a very open and forgiving sweet spot (as far as foot placement goes) and can be ridden in waves from knee high to well over head with ease. Because of the narrow hipped, continuous curve, elliptical outlines, you can surf this with a centered stance for down the line 70’s inspired speed runs, down carves and cutbacks…. or step back on the tail and go vertical off the bottom and in the pocket. The bottom contours (mostly flat rail to rail, with rolled, soft edges and a spiral vee under the rear foot) neutralize the high volume and free the board up, making it easy to push and permeate the rail deep and perpendicular into the face of waves…..rather than skate flat on top of the water. Paddling? What do you expect….like a Cadillac.

Available in 5’5″ x 20 1/4″ x 2.58″ x 29.72 cl • $764.99


The Round Up

The Round Up is a step up board designed for head high to head low conditions, similar to the Rock Up The low entry rocker, flat deck and tapered rails (with a full forward outline) paddles through crowds and moving water, and catches waves with ease.

Available in 5’8″ x 18 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ x 25.6 cl • $689.99


The Grinder

The Grinder surfboard is basically a squashed down V2 shortboard. This surfboard is a wider fuller volume shortboard with a wider tail block. This board works incredibly well in small gutless shore pound.

Available in 5’10” x 19 1/2″ x 2 3/8″ x 29.41 cl • $689.99


V3 Round Up

The Round Up is your every day Rock Up. No longer requiring heaving, heavy, “day of the year” type surf to perform. Everyone should have one!

Available in 5’8″ x 18 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ x 25.6 cl • $689.99


V3 Squash It

Lost took the V3 Rocket and replaced the rocket tail with a smooth little sqaush tail.

Available in 5’8″ x 18 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ x 25.6 cl • $689.99


The Bean Bag

A radically extreme small wave concept based around maximum surface area for lift and stability in tiny surf, the Bean Bag is balance by a ‘double ender’ outline and a tip to tail vee bottom for forgiveness and on rail surfing on the smallest waves.  Similar to the Couch Potato but with a wider tail and a lower overall rocker.
It also features a flat and stable deck.  This board is meant to be surfed very short but has the ability to be surfed aggressively from the tail and up on a rail without sliding out like most other extremely wide and short boards.  Bust out on the bean bag!

5’0″ x 20.5″ x 2 3/8″ x 29.05 cl

5’10” x 23″ x 2 3/4″ x 43.9 cl

6’0″ x 23″ x 2 3/4″ x 45.4 cl


The Puddle Jumper


The Puddle Jumper is a concaved, planning surface speeder.  Domestic bliss with a twist.  Based off the outline of the bottom feeder but with reversed bottom and rocker curves, this board features a concave bottom that transitions to vee in the tail.  The wide outline makes for easy wave catching and down the line glide and stability.  The concave bottom adds lift and increased rail curve which allows radiacal top to bottom surfing.  The straight rail line and vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and hold in hard carving maneuvers.

Says Matt Biolos, “This is the most excited I have ever been about a small wave surfboard.  Personally, its the best small wave board i have ever ridden.  I have never made a claim like that about any board before.”
