The Voodoo Child by Lost Surfboards is a really fun and versatile board. I reviewed it in two different constructions, one in the EPS Carbon Wrap, and the other in Polyurethane foam core.
Both of these boards felt really good in the 2-4+ surf we got for this review. The Carbon Wrap felt very lively under my feet with a lot of spring in and out of turns and down the line. The PU felt solid and predictable on every wave I caught.
The Voodoo Child can be ridden in 2-6 foot surf because of the aggressive tail rocker. It drives off the bottom very well, with exceptional speed and control.
Both boards were epic and I am sorry the review is over because these board goes good!!
Here is what Lost surfboards has to say about the Voodoo Child:
The “ VOODOO CHILD “ …Mason Ho’s first ever Pro Model. Designed with creative input and vision from the freewheeling, freethinking freesurfer… Mason Ho. The “VooDoo Child” is Mason’s mash-up of classic and current performance surfboard characteristics. Mason likes effortless forward glide projecting from his front foot, but demands quick and loose release off the tail. To do this we started with a lower than typical nose rocker, a relaxed curve through the center and a healthy kick in the tail.
The VooDoo Child features a modern, cutting edge, high performance, concave hull. There is a generous single and double concave cutting through curvy rail rocker, with the deepest concave being through the fins, directly under the rear foot. These elements work together to easily generate speed, and whip tight radius carves, still allowing controlled release for tail free surfing. Other elements include a more noticeably parallel outline through the center (for drive) that blends rapidly into a pulled in nose tip. There is a noticeable bump/hip into a wide squash tail, which encourages quick, angular surfing and harkens back to some classic lines from late 80’s design ethos.
