From the Shaper

The nose is flat, full and wide, the Rocker is lower overall and volume is generously distributed further into the rails and farther out to the nose and tail; So ride it a couple inches shorter, and a good ½ wider, than a Rocket or V2 to get that great “Rocket” feeling in even smaller, more crowded junky waves.

What We Like

The …Lost V2 Stub is a “step down” V2 designed to excel in smaller surf. The new V2 already works better than the original Rocket in smaller surf and the new Stub takes the small wave game even further. For those of you that have been following the …Lost brand for the last several years, you can compared the new V2 Stub to The Motivator. The biggest differences are that the V2 Stub has smoother lines with less radical design features (no more step tail). Normally in design/performance, “smoother and less radical” equates to better overall performance in a wider range of conditions.

This board will work really well in a few different applications. For the diehard Rocket fans out there – and this is a HUGE group of people – the V2 Stub gives you a very familiar hybrid feel with extra juice for small, gutless surf. The other place this board will excel is giving the high performance shortboard crew a concave designed mega groveler that isn’t extreme in width. So something like a Driver and V2 Stub will cover a huge range and both have a single concave bottom shape.

Insider Info

The design subtleties between the V2 and the V2 Stub are not GIGANTIC like comparing a V2 and a Bottom Feeder. You can’t see the differences by looking at pictures or video of the boards. The differences do become apparent when you place a V2 and a V2 Stub side by side, that’s when you can see the wider nose with more foam, thicker rails and wider tail. Individually, they both look like V2s. Side by side is where the small wave turbo really shows its horsepower.

Why You Want This Board

You want a single concave hybrid design tailored for smaller surf.
