Matt Biolos is one of the global leaders in surfboard design and technology, always on the cutting edge of design and new material construction. With a global surf team of note providing constant feedback, you can be sure that your board is packed with years of research and development, to give you the maximum amount of help while surfing. This ensures hours of fun in the water and the ability to improve your surfing rather than fighting with equipment that is not right for you. Matt visits South Africa at least once a year to check in on the factory and off course surf the amazing waves we are blessed with here in South Africa. He knows and understands the various wave set ups here in South Africa which is priceless when it comes to getting you the right board.
The Lost Surfboard brand began in 1985 with now legendary shaper Matt Biolos and a bunch of school friends started up ‘team lost’ that would spend their time between snowboarding at Mt. Baldy, skateboarding in Upland at the Pipeline and surfing Dana Point. Team Lost scribbled their name on books, shirts, tables and eventually, a clothing brand was born.
In 1987 Lost Head Shaper Matt Biolos began sanding surfboards fresh out of high school. Adopting the name “Mayhem” (an ode to the second model he shaped) Matt ‘Mayhem’ Biolos shaped 20 boards his first year. Not too many people were ordering boards from “Mayhem” yet, so to make money he continued to sand surfboards and began to paint designs on them along with a handwritten LOST wherever he could. Surfers like Christian Fletcher and Matt Archbold were getting Biolos paint jobs. Working with some big shaping names in the California scene like Timmy Patterson, Jim Fuller, Terry Senate, and Randy Sleigh and getting plenty of feedback from top surfers, his shaping ability was able to develop and from there grew the Lost Brand into a world wide phenomenon.
