In this episode, Noel puts the “Swordfish” through the paces with special guest Nate Yeomans! The Swordfish is a Kolohe Andino model inspired from the Lost RNF Retro. After riding the Swordfish, I noticed some similarities from the RNF Retro -- most noticeably is down-the-line speed and excellent traction through big carves.
In this episode I put the Lost “Rad Ripper” through the paces in 1-5’ surf. Lost sent two stock 5’5” surfboards down for review. Both boards are the exact same dimensions with PU Foam and polyester resin. One board has green Mayhem logos with Futures fin boxes that I surfed only as a Thruster and the other board has blue Mayhem logos with FCSII fin boxes that I surfed only as a Quad.

The new Lost “Maysym” is a great introduction to Asymmetrical surfboard design. This board has a Rocket tail with a longer rail line on the toe side and round tail with a shorter rail line on the heel side.
In this episode we have special guest Nate Yeomans join us to review the Lost RNF Retro Fish. Nate and I enjoy good conversation around the attributes of the Retro Fish and our experiences riding this model in two different constructions with multiple fin set ups.
In this review I get two Puddle Jumper HP surfboards from Lost to test. Both boards are stock 5’3” x 19.63 x 2.35 Liters of volume 26.75. The waves we got for testing were ideal for this model in the 1-3’ range.
