DoubleDart Surfboard Construction from …Lost
Carbon fiber surfboards are all the rage, but that wasn’t always the case. In fact, a short 10 years ago, there were hardly any carbon boards available. …Lost was one of the first surfboard companies to offer a full-deck carbon fiber construction offer with it’s BlackDart construction, and in many ways helped to usher in the current era of hyper-futuristic board construction.
And now that the rest of the world has caught up and there are dozens of carbon fiber boards available from various brands, …Lost has upped their game once again with a refined process called the DoubleDart.
Using the same carbon/S-glass hybrid as the BlackDart, DoubleDart boards offer carbon on both sides of the board—the deck and the bottom—for added strength, durability, and memory. Because carbon is stronger than fiberglass, this runs the risk of creating a board that is too rigid and doesn’t flex well, but to overcome that challenge
…Lost uses shorter cut laps and a 4-oz fiberglass wrap on the rails rather than extending the carbon all the way around. This provides torsional twist that replicates the feel of a traditional poly board, but with all of the added benefits of space-age carbon construction. In other words, you get a borderline bulletproof board that performs like your favorite magic board!
