Matt "Mayhem" Biolos is of course, the man who stands behind the surfboard designs that you get to choose from when buying a ...Lost surfboard. Firewire and Matt have been collaborating to bring you great shapes and designs in the latest technology and materials.
“The Lost Rocket proved to be a pivotal board in the history of our brand and its influence on the surfboard world is something we are very proud of,” explains Matt Biolos. “The various offspring we created from the design are some of the most popular boards in our fleet. The V2, a refined version of the original Rocket has been a favorite and we are completely stoked and flattered that Firewire has collaborated with us to launch it in their Futures Shapes Technology. The results are impressive!”
Matt explains “The V2 ROCKET has a bit less tail rocker, with less concave through the fins which creates a faster rail line under foot. I actually deepened the concave out of the tail as well. The soft wing helps retain the quick redirection off the top and lends more control in the bowl. The nose rocker is bent up more in the first 12” and the concave is brought further forward. Overall an easier board to ride for an average surfer in sub-par waves. it has more down the line drive and a bit less skateboard kick tail feel.”
FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY
FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than the traditional PU surfboard. Please note our boards are definitely not indestructible and if slammed by a thick lip, or if you land incorrectly in the flats after doing an aerial, it is possible to break them.
The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures boards maintain their lively feel for longer.
With a retail price point slightly above premium polyurethane surfboards, FST offers an extremely high performance, durable surfboard.
