Libtech Round Nose Fish Redux
…LOST RNF Redux in LIB TECH TECHNOLOGY
It’s been nearly 20 years since LOST’s groundbreaking film 5'5" x 19'1/4", which showed all of us what could be done with a wide, short template and a bit of creativity.
When 5'5" Redux came out recently, it gave us the updated version of high-performance surfing on tiny boards, and that got the guys at LOST thinking that maybe it was time to update one of their most popular models as well. Combining design elements from the RNF Classic and the RNF Quad, the RNF Redux is a post-modern throwback for the modern shred-head.
The rocker, bottom contours, and forward outline are all based off the Classic, but tail is a hybrid of the Classic and the Quad, with an MR-influenced fluted wing leading into a narrow swallow tail. The board has a very low rocker and light concave under the front foot for super fast down-the-line speed. There is a radical change from concave in the center of the board to vee in the tail, providing maneuverability and looseness when the board is put on rail.
The RNF Redux features a classic twin-fin placement for the front fins, but is equipped with five boxes so that it can be ridden as a TWIN, THRUSTER, QUAD or 5 FINS.
Twin fin: MR (FCSIi & Futures)
Twin with Drive: MR thruster (FCSII & Futures) or AMT for more hold (Futures) these set up are really good for small days.
Quad: The Mayhem Split Keel (FCSII) SeaWorthy (Futures)
Thruster: Mayhem fins (FCSII & Futures)
