LOST 5’5” x 19 ¼” REDUX PREMIER

With tri-fins and 360’s to spare, Lost 5’5” x 19 ¼ Redux proves that it’s not the motion of the ocean, or the size of the board, it’s the pure shredability of the stick. The remake (redux) of the early 90’s surf film, dedicated to thick barrels and short fish, features heavy beach breaks shallow enough to bring the manliest of shaper to tears, some 90’s punk tunes, and butt loads of neon. Held at the classic La Paloma theater in Encinitas, the throwback surf video loads up on heavy rippers, including Chris Ward, Shane Beschen and Dane Reynolds, putting sub 5’6” boards to their limits. Ending with Cory Lopez and Ian Walsh surfing some epic, endless tubes, numero dos of 5’5” x 19 ¼” doesn’t disappoint. And after Kelly Slater’s recent Pipemasters Victory with “Deep Six”, a 5’11” shred stick, the film reaffirms bigger doesn’t always mean better.
