Lost Pro-Formance Series Pocket Rocket models are now in store at Zak Surfboards – full size run hanging on our racks at present!! The aim of this new Pro-formance series is to allow customers to purchase exactly what is under the feet of the many top level athletes that Matt ’Mayhem’ Biolos shapes for.
Over the past 12 months, Matt has narrowed down a single magic design from top surfers quivers, for each of these Pro-formance board models. He has then scaled that design up and down to create full size runs. In the case of the Pocket Rocket, the “Pro” dims are based off the best boards Kolohe Andino and Griffin Colapinto have ridden in the 5’10-6’0” range.
These Pro-Formance Series Pocket Rocket models are glassed using the exact same high end materials used on these Pro’s competition boards. These shapes are cut out of Pro weight foam blanks that have 3-ply, black pigmented, bass stringers. The blanks are glassed using a composite of 4oz “S” glass cloth and direct size glass – giving these boards the strongest possible lightweight PU/PE construction.
New, fade carbon tail patch are used on all of these models, engineered to add better impact resistance precisely where your heel and toes go- while allowing the tail to flex naturally.
The Pocket Rocket design was developed for WSL surfer Kolohe Andino back in 2015. Ready to change up the bottom curves under his feet, this shortboard has a moderate even, continuous rocker, without any distinct flips or breaks compared to his previous signature board designs. The Pocket Rocket model has constantly been fine tuned since then, with feedback from the vast array of high quality surfing talent that have put Matt Mayhem Biolos’ shapes under their feet in the past 2 years you can be pretty darn sure this is a winner.
The Pocket Rocket when compared to many of Matt Biolos’ shapes has more curve in the centre of the board with less of his usual kick out the tail. This new curve has enabled Kolohe & many other team riders to approach the critical part of the wave with more aggression and most importantly, without losing speed and drive. To make sure the rider maintains lift and speed, Matt has also subtly deepened the concaves in this board model somewhat from his other hp shortboards.
The Lost Pro-Formance Series Pocket Rocket models are a great high performance shortboard with built-in drive that won’t shy away from critical sections. We currently have the round tail incarnation of this design on our racks– for smoother turns and a little extra hold and control. Drop by the shop and check them out or grab one from us ONLINE!!
