Looking for what the Black Friday…and Saturday…and Sunday deals will be at Catalyst Melbourne Beach? Look no further.
The guys at …Lost Surfboards have a couple new models that have either just recently been released or are about to find their way into the shop for the first time this fall. The Sub-Driver, Bottom Feeder, Mini Driver, and the Sub-Blaster. Check out the details below:
Right now, when you pick up any new, regular priced …Lost or …Lost FST board at Catalyst Melbourne Beach, we’re gonna throw in a brand new set of Ratio performance fins on the house! You’ll need to hurry, because at the time of this posting, we’ve only got 1 FCS tri set, 1 FCS quad set, and 4 Futures sets left. Check out the photo below for an example of one of the Futures sets remaining.
In our last shipment of boards to the Melbourne Beach shop, Jeremy received a custom version of a new model from …Lost, due to be released this coming January. Called “The Black Sheep”, the board is similar in dimensions to a Rocket (this particular board is exactly the same as his previous Rocket @ 5’6″ X 19″ X 2 1/8″), and is essentially a Rocket front half with a Sub-Scorcher swallow tail back half. This reduced tail width allows the board to come off the bottom and the top a bit quicker than the typical Rocket without sacrificing too much of the Rocket’s ability to glide across flat sections.
Also, note that the board is built with the newly available “TFT” (Twin Fuselage Technology). These boards have parallel stringers running about 3/4 of the length of the board and carbon wraps on the nose and the tail that reinforce the areas where the stringers end. This allows the board to have more flex in the tail while actually being stronger throughout the center. It’s a great option for those who want a board that’s stronger than an average poly board, but less expensive than the available epoxy construction options.
We just received a shipment of the newest …Lost Surfskates and they look sick!. Cruise by and check out the new Mini Rocket and Minigun Swallow, along with new graphics and colors on the Pelagic, Blunt, and Round Nose Fish. We also have several more new models on the way, including the Motivator Surfskate which also looks insane! Those should be showing up any time, so cruise by and check ‘em out!
In our last shipment of boards from the crew at …Lost , we received the first of a new series of boards that were made using what Mayhem is calling “Twin Fuselage Technology”. The boards are made with traditional poly materials, but the blanks being used have parallel stringers running through about 3/4 of their length. Also, to reinforce areas that do not contain stringers (i.e. the nose and tail), carbon fiber strips are used which provide both strength and a lively, reactive feel. So far, feedback from the the …Lost team has been great, so now it’s time for you guys to give it a try. The example below is the first and only board we have received thus far, a 6’0 Scorcher. We do expect to have more on the way very soon, and as always we are taking custom orders as well.
There’s been tons of good waves out there recently, providing lots of great imagery for the local photogs to capture. Here’s another great video that we came across from this past Tuesday at Sebastian Inlet, courtesy of FLShredCast.com. Be sure to look for Catalyst team riders Blake Jones (yellow wetsuit) and Mike Persichetti (red wetsuit) in the clip, as well as for Mark Dawson (pink and black board) and Phil Watters (Reef rider) and Kyle Garson (green wetsuit), all three of whom are riding …Lost boards grabbed off the shelf at the shop.
Congrats to sometimes Catalyst team rider Aaron Cormican for taking out this year’s King of the Peak at Sebastian Inlet. Gorkin ended up winning eight skins to take the win over Jax beach’s Evan Thompson. Along with eight skins worth of prize money ($200 a piece this year….we think), he also pocketed another $3000 for the taking the overall win. Details are still rolling in at this point, so we’ll have more for you tomorrow. In the mean time, here’s a few pics of the red headed step child himself from the event courtesy of Mama G.
