THE RNF ’96

LOST RNF 96 SURFBOARDS

To celebrate …Lost’s 25th anniversary, Matt Biolos is re-releasing the RNF ’96—one of the surfboards that first got …Lost started. This round nose fish was the star of the 1995/1996 film 5'5" x 19 ¼", and helped start the fish renaissance in the late 1990s. A hybrid shortboard with a rounded nose, swallow tail, extra width through the middle of the board, and was ridden a few inches shorter than a normal shortboard, making it a great performance groveler back when grovelers hadn’t even been invented yet!

FEATURES

  • Rocker curves: Remain engrained to the original proven curves.
  • Outline curves: Both nose and tail were usually the same width at 12” and remain true, but with more precision, including added curve and width around 6” from the tail. One “secret” about the original’s success was that unlike most all other “fish” the tail width on ours was closer to that of a typical HP Shortboard. This allows much more control of the tail than typical fish designs.
  • Bottom Contours: The classic single concave to double concave, accelerating vee combination are defining design elements and hold true to adherence.
  • The Thickness Flow, Deckline, Rails, and Tail Foil: They were all over the map in those rudimentary hand shape days. Each board was different, with most of them having noticeably different curves and thickness from one rail to the other.
  • In re-creating these boards, which one is correct? In the end, I went with a gut feeling on what would work best.
