    The Lost Round Nose Fish Retro launched in 2018, The RNF_RETRO was Lost's spin towards a more classic, almost 1970’s inspired, fish. Generous dims, low rocker, flat deck, steep rails and wide tail, made catching waves and speeding along, easier than any fish we’d ever designed. They set the RNF_RETRO apart from the endless schools of fish, was the use of a snowboard inspired design element, reverse radius side-cut, in the outline. Matt first used side-cut, in our “Pelagic” model, a decade or so earlier. Side-cut outlines are nothing new in surfboards, San Diego pioneers like Mirandon and Caster had used them for ages. The Lost team feel the sidecut enables a flat rocker’d and generally parallel outlined board, to turn sharper and retain speed in tight radius turns. They “lock in” to the wave face and carve, off the rail, without sliding out or digging. The RNF_RETRO uses not one, but two side cut radius’. One between the feet, starting just behind the wide point and another, shorter/tighter one, right under the rear foot, in place of a hip, or wing. They believe this outline lends the RNF_RETRO a truly unique ride in a sea of relentlessly similar “fish”. After five years unchanged, it is still one of our most popular models, especially in areas plagued with small and soft surf.

    Here's what Lost did for the RNF_RETRO-Revamp’23:

    • Moved the wide point slightly forward, for front foot drive, but gently narrowed/pulled in, the forward 12”of the nose, to get it outta the way, in tighter turning situations.
    • Deepened the rear side cut, for bite and control, right under the back foot and also added a hint of width to the tail block, for horizontal trim.
    • Without changing the tip or tail, we adjusted the rocker curves, both fore and aft. The tail rocker hangs lower in the rear third of the board, but then swoops up quickly, though the fins, creating more curve under the rear foot without actually adding rocker. Up front, we did the opposite and took a more direct route to the nose, cutting out some of the curve in the forward 1/3rd of the board. At the same time, we eliminated the slight forward vee.

    These rocker adjustments allow for a more modern, dare say, vertical, approach, with a forgiving feel under the back foot, for more precise pocket turns, without catching the nose.

    • We carried the thickness foil further forward, adding more paddle power, ease of entry into waves and front foot drive, to balance the now more curvaceous tail rocker.
    • Finally, we deepened the double concave that runs through the back half of the board and the vee thats already in the tail.

    These advancements on a proven design have slowly evolved though 5 yrs of production and custom orders, but have never been implemented into our public program….But now they have. Since most these refinements are subtle and often times even barley seen to the untrained eye, we decided to design a new logo, tints and sprays, to give the RNF_RETRO  a fabulously fresh, full re-vamp and makeover. The stock dims and volumes are still very close to the original. If you loved a certain size in the past, the new version in the same size will certainly be on a par, dims and volume wise.

    About Lost Surfboards

    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.
