With hot days and small summer waves on the horizon we are stoked at Zuma Jay to get our hands on the last few remaining Lost Libtech Surfboards.
It's been a battle to keep these summer fun beauties as they have become the must have boards of 2016 but we managed to get a small selection shipped in to us here in the shop. Check them out online or pop in to have a feel.
CON-CAVED, PLANING SURFACE SPEEDER. DOMESTIC BLISS WITH A TWIST
“This is the most excited I have ever been about a small wave surfboard.” ~ Matt Biolos This board, features a concave bottom that transitions to vee in the tail. The wide outline makes for easy wave catching and down the line glide and stability. The concave bottom adds lift and increased rail curve, which allows radical top to bottom surfing. The straight rail line & vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and hold in during hard carving manoeuvres.
HIGH PERFORMANCE HYBRID
The Shortround bridges the gap between easy riding “cheater” surfboards and the high performance shortboard. The speed comes from a low entry rocker and wide-ish nose, with a forward wide point and generous concave throughout. The performance comes from a moderate, but not flipped up, tail rocker, a double concave through the fins and the same sort of modern bump squash tail that you would find on a typical contest style, small wave HP shortboard. All combined, it doesn’t look like anything fancy and there are no gimmicks, but some times less is more, and there’s a lot packed into this little surfboard. “A skatey speedster with a high performance hook. Fast and flat, but without the fat.” ~ Matt Biolos
DESIGNED FOR SURFING SMALL WAVES WITH A “GOOD WAVE” APPROACH
Fast and foiled for on rail surfing, but full and forgiving for sub-par and sloppy surf. Refinements during the PRIME and WT comps have led us to this surfboard that grovels well but is still a true high-performance surfboard. It is fast becoming a go to fave for team riders looking for an edge in small wave contests, as well as the local crew around So-Cal, who are always ready for a something new. “An everyday modern shortboard, for small to medium surf, designed around the feedback and input of Kolohe Andino.” ~ Matt Biolos
Magically fast high performance shape small to medium wave accelerator
Magically fast Horsepower shape: short, lower rocker, straighter rail line with a speedy thumb tail and a high performance nose for aggressive modern surfing and acceleration in small to medium waves. Grovelation!
