CARBON WRAP TECHNOLOGY

CARBON WRAP™ Is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Originally created by Gold Coast surfboard manufacturer, Dan MacDonald, to be light weight without sacrificing strength and provide #nextlevel performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-envisions the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled. Ultra-light, EPS cores are “wrapped” in an exoskeleton of strategically positioned, carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward towards the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins. The carbon then “wraps” from the bottom, around the rails and onto the deck. This unique method creates Carbon Wrap’s lively flex that loads and releases…resulting in nextlevel speed and drive. Running along the rails, on the deck, the carbon acts as a rear foot power point, (increasing drive and control) and a patch to minimize pressure denting. Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are encased with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and our exclusive carbon deck inlay, which is strategically positioned to add fast re-flex memory under the surfer’s stance and allow subtle, natural deck caving around the arch of the front foot. By tapering the carbon into long, pointed ends, forward and aft, the flex blends out naturally towards the nose and tail.  A full layer of 45degree “X-Glass”, encases the deck. The X-Glass’s flat, bi-axel weave dramatically adds strength without rigidity, or excess weight and allows the board to maintain flex while alleviating crease points created by standard, 90degree fiberglass. The 45degree weave radiates foot pressure outward, directly connecting the foot to a longer section of the rail, adding greater edge control. CARBON WRAP TECHNOLOGY: Lightweight, without sacrificing strength.  Increases drive and provides and unique and lightning fast re-flex effect,  propelling your surfing into the #nextlevel of performance.

BUILD PROCESS

Ultra light, fused cell, EPS blanks provide the core for our unique construction. They are shaped and then “wrapped” in an exoskeleton of strategically positioned, carbon fiber bands.

Aligned together at the nose, our exclusive carbon fiber bands run the length of the board, curving outward towards the rails, creating and controlling our unique longitudinal and torsional flex pattern.

The carbon bands “wrap” around the rails and onto the deck. It’s this unique method that creates our lively flex that loads and releases…resulting in speed and drive.

The carbon that runs to the tail acts as a power point (for drive and control) under the rear foot and also as a tail patch to minimize pressure denting.

Using optically brightened EPOXY resin, the boards are then laminated with a proprietary composite of  fiberglass and carbon fiber.

45degree “X-Glass” ™ adds impact and longitudinal strength, with minimal weight and encourages flex. This radiates foot pressure outward to a longer section of the rail, adding greater edge control.

“Web-fused” carbon deck reinforcement: Adds strength and drive, smoothly tapers flex and prevents the deck from caving rail to rail.

CARBON WRAP increases drive and provides and unique and lightning fast re-flex effect, propelling your surfing into the #nextlevel of performance.

cwstickerAt …Lost, we are obsessed with custom surfboards. We feel that every surfer should be able to custom order the board of their dreams. Our primary priority is building custom designed, hand signed, one-of-a- kind surfboards. What you see in this catalog are standardized, moderate dimensions, based of constant feedback from athletes and customers, offered in our latest or most time tested models and constructions. If you don’t see some thing that fits your needs on the rack, or in the stock dimensions, we can build it.   All of our models, and variations of, are available in Carbon Wrap, C-3, Black Dart, EPS/Epoxy, Varial Foam, HydroFlex, XTR, or even the tried and true PU/PE constructions. We can design and build any model in any reasonable size, shape, volume and dimensions. We offer a myriad of logo choices and placements and can airbrush, hand paint, resin tint and paint pen almost anything you can dream up to provide surfers with unlimited options.
