THE RNF ’96

ROUND NOSE FISH 1996

 

Surfboard shaper and cofounder of Lost Enterprises Matt Biolos has interesting things to say about the re-releasing of RNF '96 👇

 

------------------------------------------

Model: RNF ’96. An updated tribute to the first generation of …Lost’s fish shapes, the RNF ’96 is a fast, fat hybrid that puts the fun back into surfing.

Ability: Intermediate to advanced shortboarders looking for a groveler or something retro to put some spice in their surfing.

Type of waves: Soft, waist- to chest-high+ waves, although the board can be ridden in bigger, hollower waves as well.

Fin setup: FCSII and Future 2+1.

Recommended Fin: FCS 2+1 / Performance Twin FUTURES 2+1 Neutral

Construction: Polyurethane with a volan patch under the back foot.

Description: …Lost helped reinvent the fish in the mid-1990s, combining design elements pioneered by Steve Lis in the ’70s with modern tweaks that essentially started the hybrid movement (comprehensively documented in the seminal film 5'5" x 19 1/4". The RNF ’96 is a throwback tribute to those early boards ridden by Cory Lopez and Chris Ward, with minor refinements to make them ride even better. These boards represent everything that is fun about shortboarding. They are short, stubby, wide, and flat-rockered, giving them tons of speed no matter what the wave does. At the same time, the modern refinements allow them to be surfed in a high-performance manner that belies their traditional roots. The 2+1 fin setup provides options, depending on what the waves are doing and how you feel on any given day. Surf it as a twin, a single fin, or a 2+1.
