Lost's V2 SB (Short Board) sits somewhere between their more performance orientated 'Domesticated' boards and the their high performance range, although strictly speaking it belongs in the latter category.
(N.B. As with Channel Islands' #4, The Lost V2 SB comes in two variations; the V2 SB (the board you're viewing now) and the V2 SB Domesticated. The Domesticated version is available as a special order for those that like the look of the V2 SB but feel the need for a bit more volume.)
Matt 'Mayhem' Biolos created the V2 SB for himself initially, after being ridiculed by team riders for not riding 'real' boards. So he set about building a high-performance short-board that would allow him to compete for waves and surf easily - but just a bit more radically...
In Matt Biolos' words:
"Starting with what I considered to be our best hybrid, the V2-Rocket, I stretched the outline into a pointy, yet conservative, nose and blended the “Rocket” tail into a wide-ish, smooth squash. The exceedingly low entry rocker, coupled with continuous and generous tail lift, made for a board that both paddled and caught waves well, but turned tight and precise in the pocket. It features a similar foil and rails as its predecessor and continues to have slight double concave deck under the rear foot (which really “locks” the surfer into place).
"My initial results on the first, “Domesticated”, version were so positive that I ended up surfing these boards, daily, for months straight…without reverting back to any “cheater” boards. Assuming it would work for the team also, we instantly began downsizing the design to “Pro” volume, and got them out to the boys. Positive feedback followed with instant success. In addition to winning the VQS National Champs (in Newport) Taylor Clark used his first V2-SB to win both the NSSA Mens National Title (in HB) and the U-18 US Champs Title at Lowers. Griffin Colapinto won both The U-16 US Champs, and the NSSA Boys Title in HB, on his first one as well.
"After these results we set out to get them under the feet of some International Pros. This resulted in Julian Wilson doing stellar surfing on a V2 at the US OPEN, and Alejo Muniz got his US Open victory on one as well. One week after the Open, Malia Manuel took down a stacked field of women’s WCT surfers at the SuperGirl 6-Star in Oceanside - on her first V2-Shortboard. With nearly every athlete we work with carrying a V2-SB in their travel bags, it was evident the time was here to release the V2 SB to the public."
