mayhemb3_mattbiolos THE V2-GRINDER:
Short n wide…with tons of glide. The “V2-Grinder” is a V2-SB squished into a stubby, squatty little firecracker. First built for a few of my “Domestic” buddies whose surfing can be described as “ former pro level, now grown up, with kids and a job, surfing crappy beachbreaks with my kids...whenever I get a chance”. Pleasantly surprised by rave reviews from the older,local heroes, we placed a few under the feet of some WCT and QS “Grinders”. Ends up, the board is a superb small wave contest machine. With the likes of Carissa Moore and other world class competitors using them in lackluster conditions to great
success,. To the V2s distinctive low entry and noticeable tail lift, we married an outline that resembles the classic SubScorcher. The wide tail block provides drive, lift and a stable platform in meager conditions. The short rail line and healthy amount of tail lift (paired with full and forgiving rails) still permeate the water and allow proper rail turns in small, tight, quirky shore pound. Don’t be afraid to go Short n fat with this one!

mayhemb3_mattbiolos The #PuddleJumper is a con-caved, planing surface speeder. Domestic bliss with a twist. Based off the outline of the Bottom Feeder, but with reversed bottom and rocker curves. This board, unlike the past Domestic models
(like The Bottom Feeder and RV) features a concave bottom that transitions to vee in the tail. The wide outline makes for easy wave catching and down the line glide and stability. The concave bottom adds lift and increased rail curve, which
allows more radical top to bottom surfing. The straight rail line and vee in the tail keep the board moving forward and hold in during hard carving maneuvers. This is
the most excited I have ever been about
a small wave surfboard. Personally, its the best small wave board I have ridden.

mayhemb3_mattbiolos THE R.V. SPLIT TAIL
Features a fresh, fun, flashy tail added to a tried and true favorite. Nothing groundbreaking or earth shattering here. The Split Diamond tail has been growing in popularity among many shapers lately. I became interested in it as soon as I saw first them on boards like Mandelas and Tomos a few years ago. Adding this tail to the R.V. creates a longer, straighter rail line in the back half of the board….generating a touch more drive off the tail. The surface area is increased, adding more lift, the notched out "split" gives a little bite and release, to hold in and grip some, at speed. As a fresh twist update to an already popular board, The Split Tail R.V. is as equally fun and squirty in small, connect the dot, gutless dribble as it is effective in high-lining and down carving arcs across long speedy walls.

mayhemb3_mattbiolos From the team here at ....Lost Surfboards, I would like to offer to the close friends and family of Ricardo Dos Santos our sincere regrets at the loss of such a fine young man. Today is a dark day for the Brazilian surfing community. I am proud and fortunate to have known and worked with Rico. He was a bright , positive , honorable, talented and accomplished human being. 5d

mayhemb3_mattbiolos I dig this shot of @shanebeschen.
It really illustrates his endless commitment to form and technique. Still ripping after all these years. Although I was already working with teenage phenoms, @corylopez and @psycho_ward137 for a few years prior, it was Shane who was the first to push me to build boards at an elite competition level. It paid off, when he won the 1998 Coke Classic, at Manly ( defeating Sunny Garcia in the final). I was fortunate to be on the sand to witness Shane to be the first win a WCT event on a board I built. Thanks for pushing me so hard. It's still paying off. @liebervision

mayhemb3_mattbiolos THE SHORT ROUND:
Our latest high performance hybrid. In the
tradition of the Rocket and its many knock offs, the Shortround bridges the gap between easy riding "cheater" boards and the HP Shortboard. Tested all around Southern California in the summer of 2014, this board has more than impressed. The buzz about it is spreading. The speed comes from a low entry rocker and wide-ish nose, with a forward wide point andgenerous concave throughout. The performance comes from a moderate, but not flipped up, tail rocker, a double concave through the fins and the same sort of modern bump squash tail that you would find on a typical contest style, small wave HP shortboard. All combined, it doesn’t look like anything fancy and there are no gimmicks, but some times less is more, and there is a lot packed into this little board.

mayhemb3_mattbiolos Super twangy Green Machine thangy: This stringer-less #BeanBag was shaped from a PolyUrethane blank and glassed with good ol' fashioned polyester resin, which was saturated with neon green tint. Adorned with @futuresfins #Slingshots for the full effect....This build was inspired by my little buddy @tyler_warren and a Stringerless PU/PE keel fin, SoapBar he made me. 1w

mayhemb3_mattbiolos Evidently there will be enough size along the California Coast to ride boards like this, over the next couple days. This is The #DoubleUp, and can be your new best friend. 1w
