The LayZBoy is also part of the new …Lost Domesticated Series and personally tested and endorsed by Matt Biolos. “Tested and Endorsed” should really be expanded into “he personally surfs this board a ton” so you know it’s not just another “big guy tri” with lackluster performance. If you find your self “lost” in the “continuous curve, double ender” description of this board, simply think of it as a average to better wave step up for everyone who is head over heels in lust with the …Lost Plank, Uber Plank, Bottom Feeder and now Couch Potato. These three boards are so ridiculously easy to surf well (and smooth), that transitioning over to a HP or even a concave bottom hybrid sometimes seemed like a slap in the face. The LayZBoy allows you to pack the same volume, glide and smooth lines over to a board with a much higher top end than the grovel dedicated fatties. The fact that it excels in knee high to overhead surf also makes it the perfect compliment to surfers already owning a longboard for dribble. This board has been sub-consciously needed for the past three years, so expect it to be a very popular model in the …Lost lineup.
Both a continuation and break away from the Plank/Bottom Feeder genre of alternative, fun yet performance minded, surfboards. The LayZboy 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 LayZboy 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 our proven rocker and bottom curves from the Bottom Feeder and Plank series, 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.
