The Lost Short Round surfboard by matt Biolos. The Short Round is the latest high performance hybrid. In the fine tradition of the Rocket and its numerous impersonators, the Short Round bridges the void between these easy riding hybrids and your regular high performance shortboard. The summer of 2014 saw the Short Round tested all around So Cal where it has more than impressed and created quite a buzz. The speed comes from the wider nose and low entry rocker, with a forward wide point and generous concaves throughout. The key to the ShortRound's performance is the moderate but definitely not flipped up tail rocker, the double concave through the fins and the regulation, modern bump/squash tail popular in high performance, contest, small wave shortboards. This simple approach to the modern hybrid doesn't have any gimmicks, but there is a lot to be said for the old adage "less is more". The Short Round has a lot packed in to its modest template, but don't be fooled, this is a board with a heap of built in Grin Factor.
