While the name may indicate the V3 replaces the V2 Rocket, it doesn’t. The V3 is an addition to the …Lost Rocket Family, much in the same way the Grocket was a relative of the OG Rocket. Compared to the V2, the new V3 has a slightly narrower nose, plus double wing rocket tail out the back that keeps it surfing tight in the pocket with a crisp high performance feel.

From the Shaper

We were looking for a one board quiver type of design. Starting with the V2-Rocket, the most notable difference being the double wings cut in the tail outline. These wings accelerate the reduction of surface area in tail curve, resulting in a noticeably narrower “Rocket” tail. Less width behind the rear foot equals more precision and more control in the pocket. It also allows for functionality in a wider range of wave size.

What We Like

…Lost and Matt Biolos have a great way of building out your quiver to make sure you have all the bases covered. The new V3 Rocket follows in the footsteps of its great uncle “The Grocket” with tighter, snappier turns, a looser feel and the ability to handle more powerful surf. Winger swallowtails are kind of dated right now, so Biolos instead chose to use a double wing Rocket tail, which results in a similar reduction of tail area, a unique “mini rocket” tail look, and a good bit of outline curve out the back of the board.

This additional outline curve and reduced tail area free up the board in the pocket while at the same time adding control. This means you can rock out with your V3 Rocket even when the music gets loud and round!

Insider Info

The name is definitely going to confuse everyone into thinking it replaces the V2 Rocket, but it doesn’t. Just like the OG Rocket/Grocket combo, there is room for both and both will continue to exist. The V2 has more nose and tail area, more power in soft conditions and more forgiveness to heavy-footed surfers who hammer on their front foot (wider nose). If you live in a place where you get smaller waves that aren’t super hollow, the V2 is still a better single board quiver (unless you’re super light footed). Where the V3 steps in, is with quiver building where surfers already have a groveler and are looking for one more board to surf from average surf all the way to heavier waves, good tubes, etc and still want the “Rocket feel”.

Not as gunny as the Rockup, and with a very familiar “oh yea that will work” tail shape, the V3 is a good “non-indo” wave board that you can surf every time your groveler tops out. Looking at the outline, you can even compare it to the range of the super popular …Lost Mini Driver, just with reverse rocker pattern (flatter up front, accelerated rocker out the back.) The other go to range for this board is for Rocket fans who live in (or travel to) a location with rounder waves and a bit more punch, who want a one board quiver. Say for example Nicaragua. For this, the V3 is MONEY!

Why You Want This Board

You like the Rocket feel but want more precision and the ability to handle more powerful surf.
