2021 Lib Tech Lost Rocket Redux FC Surfboard
Before Instagram and the endless charade of social media surfboard model marketing melted our minds, real word of mouth made one little board iconic through the surfing world... The Rocket
Birthed from a broken blank and the brains of Beschen (Shane) and Budroe, the original Rocket was to simply be aboard for baby Beschen (Noah) to learn on. Once ridden by Shane, everything changed, and he felt compelled to bring us hig fabulous find to be refined.
Happy accidents have been a staple of surfboard progression since the beginning. As we started fine-tuning and building them for the boys, we knew we had something special. Fast forward a year, and the 2009 video release of 5'5" Redux". The Rocket was a star of the show, ridden by a parade of guest rippers cutting loose on the little weapon. From Bros to Pros. the Rocket was soon a global hit, being enjoyed by surfers of all shapes, sizes and skillsets. Now, more than a decade after its initial release, the Rocket returns. A re-incarnated Redux for the new generation to enjoy another run of fun... The Rocket Redux.
Lib Tech strives to retain all of the original Rocket design details and magic: The extremely low and fast entry rocker, counterbalanced by a hyper-extended tail curve, for instantaneous down the line drive and playfully precise turning. The deepest of concaves, created by a straight centerline stringer and curvaceous rail rocker lends lift and liveliness. The wide rail and parallel, bullet-like, outline provides plenty of speed and hold. The hooked diamond "Rocket" tail adds bite and holds in firm, rear footed carves.
While the Rocket Redux stays true to the original Rocket, to bring a serious performance boost we've: refined and cleaned curves made the rails a bit more refined. and updated some details just enough to keep up with the things we've learned since. For our Lib x Lost colab they have bumped up the width and volumes just a hint for extra speed and power in a wide variety of conditions including super slop.
