The V2-ShortBoard" : Is the most anticipated new shortboard model ...Lost have had in years. The RnD process proved this board as suited to the "Domesticated" surfer, as to the traveling Pro.
From Matt Biolos
"Initially created as a board for myself, after being harassed by certain team riders to "Get off those fun-boards your always riding and ride a real board". I set about to build a performance shortboard that would allow me to compete for waves in a crowded line up and also let me surf them as easily (and hopefully more radically) as on my best and most trusted hybrids. Starting with what I considered to be our most hybrid, the V2-Rocket, I stretched the nose outline into a pointy, yet conservative, nose and blended the winged "Rocket" tail into a smooth curving squash with generous surface area. The exceedingly low entry rocker, coupled with continuous and generous tail lift, made for a board that both paddled and rolled into waves well, but turned tight and precise in the pocket.
The board features a similar foil and rails as its predecessor and continues to have slight double concave deck under the rear foot (which really feels positive and "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 nearly 3 months straight….without reverting back to any shorter/rounder "cheater" boards. Assuming it would work for the team riders as well, we instantly began to downsize the design to the volume the assorted Pros would appreciate and started dolling them out to the boys. Positive feedback followed with almost instantaneous success. Taylor Clark used a pair of 5'11" 18.88" 2.20" V2-SBs to win both the NSSA Open Mens National Title in HB , and the U-18 Title at The US Championships at Trestles (In addition to the VQS National Champs, in Newport beach). Griffin Colapinto won The U-16 Title at the US Champs and the NSSA Boys Title in HB.. Both on a 5'6 17.63 2.06 V2-SB. After these stellar results , and other fantastic feedback form various other surfers, we set out to get them under the feet of some International Pros. This resulted in Julian Wilson riding a 5'10 18.75 2.25 and doing subsequently stellar surfing at the US OPEN .
Alejo Muniz got his US Open victory (against Team rider, Kolohe Andino, in a dueling Mayhems final) on a 5'10 18.50 2.20 V2-SB. Finally, one week after the Open, Malia Manuel took down a stacked field (featuring the majority of the womens WCT World Tour) at the SuperGirl 6-Star event in Oceanside. She won the event on a 5'6 18.13 2.13 V2-Shortboard."
