This week's board is the ROCK-UP from LOST.

As a micro surfboard addict myself, I know how hard it can be to switch from your super fun, fat 5'2 fish to a super pointy 6'5 mini gun when the waves go well overhead.
 
Usually, the conversion equals an adjustment period- rich with missed waves and sloppy turns, leaving you slapping your forehead as you paddle back into the lineup wondering why your surfing is so off.
 
The Rock-Up was invented as a solution to this problem. A step up shape for people who love their small boards and don't want to deal with a huge transition in foam when they need to handle bigger waves.

Featuring a lifted pin tail, low entry rocker, tapered full foward outline rails, and a nose that's a perfect halfway point between gunny sharp and hybrid wide, the Rock-Up is a big wave board for people who like the option of leaving their gigantic guns at home.
 
Lost suggests the Rock-Up is best used in good surf (it especially likes bowly waves) from 4 feet to a bit over 10 feet, but due to its relatively high volume and forward nose, some people might be able to grovel the small stuff with it.

The Rock-Up from Lost. Definitely worth taking a look at.
