Choosing a board that has just the right amount of float and maneuverability for your specific weight and skill level can be tricky.

The Pocket Rocket is the culmination of our work with many WSL surfers, primarily Kolohe Andino. After a stellar start on the 2015 WQS (with a win at the Australia Open) Kolohe's momentum had slowed by mid-season. He was ready to try some different curves under foot. I offered up examples of alternative curves we were supplying other WT surfers with success- one in particular, code-name "WLG". The board featured a moderate continuous rocker, with no discernible flip or break, and more curve in the center of the board (with less in the tips) than usual. For Kolohe, who was used to boards with more overall rocker, I knew we needed to maintain speed and control in tight radius turns to surf more critical in the pocket than currently, all without losing speed and drive.To do so, we really hollowed out the stringer line between his feet and into the rear third of the board, while maintaining the already healthy amount of rail rocker. This made for a deeper, almost exaggerated concave (for lift and speed) but with enough overall curve to still surf radical in the pocket. Somewhat jokingly, I scribbled "PocketRocket" on his first one. 5'11" 18.75" 2.32" 27.05cl. He rode it to a QF finish in the Azores WQS 10,000, then won the Cascais Pro-WQS 10,000 on it, texting me after some heat wins "PocketRocket". Next came the QuikPro-France WCT and his heat in small Hossegor, besting King Kelly, on the same board. Staying together in France that week, we figured out this would make a great board for surfers looking for a modern HP surfboard based off feedback from competitive surfers. Kolohe has always preferred boards with built-in drive and a little extra surface area and volume, so we feel this design is not too "Pro" or extreme in any way. The deep concave and curvy rail rocker work well to provide lift and pop in even smallish, sloppy surf. The conservative overall rocker and outline lends itself to a feeling of confidence to push hard in good, powerful sections, as well. It's fun in small snappy beach breaks and excels in chest high to 1.5x overhead.

The Lost Surfboard brand began in 1985 with now legendary shaper Matt Biolos and a bunch of school friends started up 'team lost' that would spend their time between snowboarding at Mt. Baldy, skateboarding in Upland at the Pipeline and surfing Dana Point. Team Lost scribbled their name on books, shirts, tables and eventually, a clothing brand was born. In 1987 Lost Head Shaper Matt Biolos began sanding surfboards fresh out of high school. Adopting the name "Mayhem" (an ode to the second model he shaped). Matt 'Mayhem' Biolos shaped 20 boards his first year. Not too many people were ordering boards from “Mayhem” yet, so to make money he continued to sand surfboards and began to paint designs on them along with a handwritten LOST wherever he could. Surfers like Christian Fletcher and Matt Archbold were getting Biolos paint jobs. Working with some big shaping names in the California scene like Timmy Patterson, Jim Fuller, Terry Senate, and Randy Sleigh and getting plenty of feedback from top surfers, his shaping ability was able to develop and from there grew the Lost Brand into a world wide phenomenon.
