A great every day, all around utility board, to semi-step up/travel board. 80’s inspired, with modern updates, making for effective fun in the widest variety of conditions.
The RETRO RIPPER is a scaled down version of the Retro gun, with a wider, more playful, winged, round pin tail. Designed as an everyday utility board to semi-step up. A great travel board, that can handle some size, and a wide variety of conditions. The target surfer for this board is once again the guy who tends to rides wider, thicker, high volume, relaxed rocker boards in small, daily surf…and struggles to find a suitable board for bigger, better, or more challenging days. Very well suited for solid East Coast hurricane and winter swells, crowded head high beach breaks, long winding points and really excels in strong offshore winds, or choppy, windy conditions.
Similar features to the RetroGun:
• Flat, stable deck with full, steep, low apex rails = Paddle power and edge control.
• Low entry rocker with accelerated tail rocker. Fast out the gate, yet turns tight in the pocket.
• Rolled vee in nose, flat under front foot, and a deep double concave vee cutting through the tail rocker. Slice though windchop and allow the higher volume to sit low in the water.
• Winged round pin tail = A release point to keep the board loose. It quickens up turns in moderate surf, without being detrimental in larger waves.
The overall look, feel and vibe is once again very reminiscent of boards I built for myself (and a few brave friends) in the ‘80’s, for surfing in better days from Trestles to Salt Creek, and down to Mexico. A very user-friendly board, suited for surfers looking for a fast, fun, easy to paddle, alternative, that really works best when most hybrids are reaching their effective wave size limits. Adding to the fun, the RetroRipper comes standard with era specific, vintage ‘80’s “Mayhem”, …Lost spiral and rail logos.
No advertising firm was hired to design the LOST logo.
Lost began in 1985 when Matt Biolos and a bunch of school friends were into snowboarding at Mt. Baldy, skateboarding at the Pipeline in Upland, and surfing in Dana Point. They weren't too worried about winning this football game or that contest. They were "team lost". Thus the name ...lost scribbled on books, t-shirts, benches, tables and eventually clothing.
We could say "Since those wild beginnings, ...Lost has spread slowly across the world. The Company has matured internally but continues to run off the same philosophy it started with. The Lost thinking now flows through its art, music, films, athletes and clothing" ...but that sounds like some PR firm wrote that for us. So ...Lost is whatever you think it is
