Lost RNF Retro Fish Review

Lost Round Nose Fish Retro Surfboard Review by: Noel Salas

In this episode we have special guest Nate Yeomans join us to review the Lost RNF Retro Fish. Nate and Noel Salas enjoy good conversation around the attributes of the Retro Fish and their experiences riding this model in two different constructions with multiple fin set ups.

"The Retro Fish is very versatile and goes GOOD in 1-4’ surf with multiple fin configurations. The PU construction gives it that classic retro fish vibe feeling solid on big carves and down the line speed. Nate and I also talk about Lost’s new construction called C4 that has an EPS foam core with a thin layer of Cork covering the entire deck. This layer of cork acts as a dampener to reduce chatter, and strengthen the deck to extend the life of the board. The C4 construction has a livelier feel due to its EPS foam core."

"Nate and I both agree that it gives the Retro Fish a more performance feel compared to the PU adding a bit of flare or X Factor in every turn. The Lost Retro Fish is a really fun board and I highly recommend it for surfers that range from beginners to the advanced levels."

Surfboard Wars - Rocket Wide vs Neck Beard 2

by Brian Brown June 18, 2019

The idea of Surfboard Wars was created by our community in a very organic way. The more surfboards we reviewed in one Class (ie. Grovelers 1-4’ surf), the more questions we received as to which board performed best in that Class. Surfboard Wars is a platform where surfboards battle for the rights to be crowned “Champ” in their Surfboard Class.

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.

Hayden Shapes Misc. Surfboard Review

by Brian Brown April 09, 2019

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.
