…Lost Pelagic Surfboard Model Description: After four years of tweaking and testing this most radical of fish designs Lost is proud to finally announce its release. Pelagic species are known as “The fastest, most stream lined and agile of all open ocean fish”. Side cuts in surfboard outlines are not new. The concept has been dabbled with for decades. In surfboards, everything is balance. Curvy rockers need to balance with straighter outlines and curvy outlines need flatter rockers. These principles became very apparent in the development of the Pelagic. Beginning with a fairly standard RNF template, Lost added a point at 12″ from the tail and carved a reverse, side-cut, outline from there forward, into the wide point just above center. This effectively creates a reversed curve outline between the riders stance. To balance the negative outline curve, they have added a tremendous amount of rail rocker through the center of the board. The final component is a very low, straight and fast centerline rocker, which cuts a massively deep concave through the rail rocker.
