The Puddle jumper is the very first board Lost made with Libtech. It’s been the #1 selling model since 2015. Catches waves like a fish, but surfs like a performance shortboard. You can take off steep and go vertical 90 up the face and turn it hard off the top. It has a wide tail but the v through the bottom holds like a pulled in tail, so you can surf this aggressively.
When you surf this, you’ll almost forget you are riding a fat stubby board. It will surf in knee high and handle 8’ faces. We have several customers that surf this country, and let me tell you— it handles solid overhead waves and fits into the barrel no problem.
It does not feel like a bulky board like most you’ve ridden. Matt has been building these wide nose boards since the last 80’s. Back then, it was NOT cool to be riding these things. However, Matt knew these boards were the best for those who just wanted to get out there and enjoy th surf. In that way, you can say he had built and designed these boards, not just for profesional surfers, but for your averae everyday surfer.
He knew the value of simply enjoying your ride, and he implemented this well into the "lost" surfboards you see today.
The Puddle Jumper comes in 7 sizes. From 5’1" - 6’1". If you click here, we have a list of the boards with dimension and volume. Use the Volume chart to figure out what size you need. Getting one a little larger or more volume than you normally ride is okay. These things surf well and offer a lot of flexibility. Plus, with the new fins boxes that fit both FCSI and FCSII finding the right fin to make the board work is a non-issue.
For small days, if you want a Thruster, we recommend the MR Fins for speed and loose turning. If you like Quads for the pure speed, the Matt Biolos Keel Quad is a good choice. For waves that are over head the Al Merrick or Simon Fins are a good choice.

Thanks for checking out this Lost Puddle Jumper page, it’s been our #1 Selling model since September of 2015. Personally, we have tested this board on small town waves to bigger country ones, and we will say without a doubt: it works. Plus with the Libtech strength, it’s a board that is incredibly hard to ding. And... well, even if you do, the inside foam is 100% waterproof. It’s easy to repair if you need to.
