The Libtech and Lost Surfboard collaboration boards. Proven shapes by world-renown Matt Biolos one of the top shapers and currently has more team riders on the professional tour than any other shaper in the world.
LIBTECH & LOST "PUDDLE JUMPER"
The Puddle jumper is the very first board Lost made with Libtech. Itâ€™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 '80s. 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 the surf. In that way, you can say he had built and designed these boards, not just for professional surfers, but for your average everyday surfer.
He knew the value of simply enjoying your ride, and he implemented this well into the "lost" surfboards you see today.
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 overhead, 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, itâ€™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.
THE NEW LIB TECH MLB
The new Lib Tech MBC construction perfectly blends the best characteristics of epoxy: durability and liveliness with the best performance characteristics of polyester: flex and dampness. The addition of magnesium fiber improves our overall impact resistance, and the carbon composite stringer exactly matches the flex of a new high-performance polyester and holds it for the life of the board. The world's best surfboard construction just got even better!
