V3 Rocket Carbon Wrap
Designer: Lost - Mayhem

V3 is an extension of the Rocket collection and a continuation of the Rocket tradition. We were looking for a one board quiver type of design. Starting with the V2-Rocket, the most notable difference being the double wings cut in the tail outline. These wings accelerate the reduction of surface area in tail curve, resulting in a noticeably narrower “Rocket” tail. Less width behind the rear foot equals more precision and more control in the pocket. It also allows for functionality in a wider range of wave size. The tail width at 12″ is still substantial, netting a board that still feels fast, stable and squirty …even in smaller surf. When ridden as a quad, the narrower tail is freed up, allowing the surfer to stand a bit further forward and still remain loose and free in small surf. The nose outline was also pulled in a bit, in the 12-18″ area, netting a more elliptical, catch free, overall outline that fits into curvy wave faces better than Rockets of the past. A more freed up and quick reacting outline that handles a wider range of waves, even powerful and well overhead, but still easy to paddle and surf in small or crowded conditions. Inspired by the positive performance feedback from the “Grocket” version (with single wing and pulled in swallow) that we released years ago. The “Grocket” was, and continues to be, a custom order favorite. Like the Grocket, The V3-Rockets higher performance characteristics in relation the other Rockets (and their wide tails) makes it the “fishy” board for guys who don’t ride fish!

The Carbon Wrap is a performance driven glassing technology that uses a strategically placed carbon and epoxy glassing construction to finish the board. Designed to reduce the weight of the surfboard whilst maintaining strength and the optimum flex. Unlike many carbon epoxy glassing hybrids the Carbon Wrap is designed to prevent stiffness in the flex, in particular the flex through the tail.
