Matt “Mayhem” Biolos, shaper for Lost Surfboards, and our friends at Lib Tech have teamed up and we couldn’t be more excited. Announced at this year’s Sima Surf Expo, Lib Tech will release one of Matt’s newer shapes, the Puddle Jumper, in their revolutionary waterboard construction for Spring. Also part of the collab are two retro fish snowboards.
Shown here is Marshall Alberga on the new Lost Collab.
“Since I first saw Lib Tech’s Eco-ism construction, I wanted to build a board with it. The weight to strength ratio, eco minded materials and techniques, and the fact that some thing this tech was being done in the USA was incredibly interesting to me. I am stoked that time has finally come and hope people enjoy riding them as we have been enjoying building them.”
We hope that the Puddle Jumper is the first of many collaboration boards to come from these two legends. It is a short and stubby board with a squash tail and single concave bottom that v’s into the tail. Puddle Jumper will be offered in 5 different sizes and will be the first Lib board not to feature their standard concave deck. Since the deck will be a more traditional style, they have also included volume measurements for the first time.
Look out for these this Spring 2015. And now… Cleanline is offering FREE SHIPPING on all Lib Tech surfboards in the continental US!

I went down to Pacific City for a couple of days to hang out and compete in the 16th Annual Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic this past September. The comp has been going on for a while and is a rare longboard gem for the Northwest now that the Lincoln City event has been decommissioned. There’s something pretty cool about a bunch of big boards (9’0″ and up) all getting together for some surf. The competition is also a benefit to help build a skate park for the Coastal Oregon town of Pacific City. Hosted by Moment Surf Shop, and Pelican Brewery, these guys know how to throw a party.
