Funny thing is when I came across the board ad on Gumtree I googled "Lost plank" to refresh my memory about the board and my original post was one of the few relevant search results...hence the zombie thread.

As I'm in Australia when I click on those links or the Google search it automatically takes me to the Lost Australia website and the planks are gone. Even a search on the website draws a blank.

Forecast looks good for waves this week as long as we get offshores. Reckon you are correct and it's going to be a keeper.

When it’s really small and mushy you can forget the long board. Originally inspired after trying a friend’s “Mini Simmons” twin keel, retro board in knee high lumps. The board was fast and fun, but I couldn’t really lay into it. Motivated to do better, I hand shaped a “Green Foam” recycled fish blank and attacked the 6’0″ blank like a high school sculpture project…. keeping in mind the unique glide of that “Simmons”. The blank was pretty thin, so I left the deck flat. It’s really wide, so no concave. Looking for ridiculous glide, but demanding aggressive turning, I left it really straight rockered, but did a little flip out the back. I made it a strong bump, diamond tail. In place of the twin keels, wanting a more reliable feeling, I chose to make it a quad, and used a Future Fins solid glass fin we have been playing with as the template. That first “Plank” was about 6’0″ x 22″ x 2.5” full, and was the easiest board I have ever ridden in waves I would normally only bother with on a long board. The “Plank” catches anything and does full rail roundhouse cutbacks on 10″ high lumps of water. If you like the way it looks, and want a truly unique and extreme small wave tool to keep you off that log, then think about custom ordering one of these. I guarantee you won’t be let down.

Same rocker and foil, but with updates in bottom curves and outline to increase performance. Wing “Squallow” (swallow set into a squash) tail adds bite and increases precision. Nose tip is pulled to reduce un-needed volume, swing weight and quicken up turns. Bottom now features single concave set into a rolled Vee through middle, increasing lift at low speedswhile still being easy to roll onto a rail for hard carves in the smallest of waves.
