Lost "Maysym" - Review by Noel Salas
The new Lost “Maysym” is a great introduction to Asymmetrical surfboard design. This board has a Rocket tail with a longer rail line on the toe side and round tail with a shorter rail line on the heel side.
The two different tails put together make it an Asymmetrical design to offer a different feel underfoot compared to your normal Symmetrical surfboard. On my toe side I could generate speed easily due to the longer rail line. It also has a single channel on the toe side adding extra tail rocker for traction, drive, and vertical pocket surfing.
The heel side of this board has a round tail with a shorter rail line that enables you to turn faster on your front side cutbacks, top turns, and round house cutbacks. I also noticed the quick bottom turns backside due to the shorter rail line in addition to the drive and hold a round tail offers.
The Maysym goes good front side and back side, and I highly recommend it as a small wave Groveler for 1-4’ waves. This board is ideal for intermediate to advanced level surfers looking for a fresh feeling under foot. Ride it as a Thruster for more pivot or ride it as Quad for a looser feel with a little extra speed.

THE PERFECT GIFT!
Have you ever seen yourself surf on video before? Ever wonder if you’re riding the right board? How about your fins… do they even matter? Can a couple minor changes in your technique get you to the next level in your surfing?
My brother Aarron and I would like to invite you to experience a VIP session with us.
Come spend 2 hours getting the VIP treatment as we dial in your boards, fins, and surf technique.
Aarron will capture your waves on video, and I will be in the water with you working on surf technique and dissecting your surf equipment. After the session is over, I will take the captured video and break down technique and equipment adjustments as needed. more

Soloshot 3 is a tool to better our surfing. Studying yourself surf is a great way to see what you are doing well and what you need to work on so you can surf better. Shooting video is vital to growth in surfing along with dialing in your equipment.
I am also inviting our surf community to join us in surfboard reviews. Pretty simple.... get a camera man or Soloshot to shoot you on 5-6 waves then a quick interview of how the felt under your feet. Then send them over via Wetransfer so I can edit them into our review.
