A look at the Lost Blunt. This retro looking board is one of Matt Biolos' personal favorites. "While surfing the mushy point and beach breaks of San Clemente, I'm always looking for a board that paddles easily, doesn't stall on the flat sections, carves the mush, and can still go vert and snap in the pocket". Taking influences from the jumbo wide tails of 1980's Laser Zap, the Blunt was designed around a modern thickness flow, rails, and bottom curves, but with an extra wide round tail to stay on top of the water. The outline at the nose is wide and curvy as well. The wide round tail encourages flowing turns and rolls tight in the pocket. The rocker is low throughout, but with an aggressive acceleration in the tail. The rail rocker is lower than the center line in the rear half, creating a radically deep concave and curvey rail line through the fins. This gives heaps of lift, and super fast tight arc'd turns out of the tail. The bottom rail is tucked all the way through the fins, so you can get it 'stuffed in' and it'll hold and not slide out. "Riding this board is the most fun I have ever had in typical waist to chest high Trestles surf. I couldn't recommend it more".
