Lost MAYSYM Surfboard Review

Lost MAYSYM Surfboard Review by Noel Salas:

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.

The two different tails put together make it an Asymmetrical design to offer a different feel underfoot compared to your normal Symmetrical surfboard. On my toe side I could generate speed easily due to the longer rail line. It also has a single channel on the toe side adding extra tail rocker for traction, drive, and vertical pocket surfing.

The heel side of this board has a round tail with a shorter rail line that enables you to turn faster on your front side cutbacks, top turns, and round house cutbacks. I also noticed the quick bottom turns backside due to the shorter rail line in addition to the drive and hold a round tail offers.

The Maysym goes good front side and back side, and I highly recommend it as a small wave Groveler for 1-4’ waves. This board is ideal for intermediate to advanced level surfers looking for a fresh feeling under foot. Ride it as a Thruster for more pivot or ride it as Quad for a looser feel with a little extra speed.

Channel Islands Ultra Joe Surfboard Review

by Brian Brown May 06, 2019

In this episode I get two stock 5’3” Ultra Joe boards in Spinetek. Both boards are set with 5 fin options and I put them through the paces in 1-6’ surf. Even though the Ultra Joe is made for 1-4’ surf I like to find the top end on these type of Grovelers and it held it’s own even in overhead surf.

In this review I test out two boards, one stock 5'5" and one custom 5'5". The Miscellaneous is designed for a 2+1 fin set up which uses Twin Fin sides with a small center trailing fin. The large Twin Fins give this board incredible speed and the small trailing fin offers hold and something to pivot off of.
