Built around a more traditional high performance shortboard nose template, my Lost V3 Stealth is 6’2 x 20.75 x 2.69 at 38CL of volume.

This design results in a board that blends Lost V3 Rocket design with the quickness, performance and visuals of a standard HPSB shortboard.

Technically, Matt Biolos of Lost Surfboards added length and rocker to the nose, and pulled the forward outline in to more closely resemble a modern shortboard nose template.

The tail has more pronounced, fluted wings and a more radical “Rocket” diamond at the end.

The deeper wings add grip and control by reducing surface area. The flutes help the rail to permeate the surface, as well as reduce the rail volume, for more precise and surface permeating carving.

The bottom still contains the V3’s relaxed centerline rocker, for glide and down the line drive, and a healthy amount of concave. The concave adds considerable lift, and creates a hyper curved rail rocker under the rear foot, allowing the surfer to turn freely and precisely when the board is rolled onto a rail.

The Lost V3 Stealth offers high speed, wide tail glide for fat faced fun, combined with the ability for fast, vertical, precise pocket surfing…in even marginal conditions.

Hope you enjoy this Lost V3 Stealth Surfboard Review for CompareSurfboards.com!

All the best,
Benny

Interesting review. Always wondered about it. Love my V3 Rocket. As a rule I don’t get a board with channels.

38 centiliters… squirrel surfing…lol !

Sherkhan says:

How did you size this compared to your V3? When I sat down with Matt to get my custom Stealth he pretty much pulled up my V3 from the prior year and shaped the stealth outline so that my V3 fit into the stealth. You could see where the nose of the stealth extended. I went in expecting to get a stealth with same or slightly less liters, but instead he added an inch and thus a liter or two. He tweaked the thickness and rails so it wouldn’t balloon too much off the V3. Off the rack I would have totally picked the wrong size. But Matt really knows how to fit a board to a person (even an average surfer like me). Gotta trust him on that. I also love how much time he takes when he sits down with you. I always wait for his local shapers night events, to sit with him personally.
Also, I didn’t put channels into mine. Both Matt and Nate Yeomans commented how a stealth with channels tends to get air underneath if the wave has some bump. Maybe that’s where you experienced some of the instability?

Youdig says:

I noticed too that lost shape are so friendly with guy like me 189lbs 86kilos ,’maybe because the master shape are based on matt biolos , not skinny regular pro surfer 😉 plus their two size system bro and pro dim are really good.

Justin Bordwell says:

Also lost boards are way smaller than they look. The nose and tails are super thinned out.
