Progressive Pilgrim: …Lost x Pilgrim Surf + Supply

Head on over to Pilgrim Surf + Supply for a look at their latest project, a collaboration with famed …Lost Surfboards founder and shaper, Matt “Mayhem” Biolos.

It’s a great marriage between the gentler aesthetics of Brooklyn-based Pilgrim (I’m just trying to avoid using the word hipster, but alas, there’s no way around it) and the irreverent Orange County punk stylings of …Lost. …Lost has established itself as a fixture of the Southern California high performance shortboard scene, but it hasn’t lost any of its rebellious nature. It’s a tough act. Look no further than Volcom, whose rallying cry of “Youth Against Establishment” in the late 90s and early 2000s segued into an IPO and then an assimilation into a faceless luxury conglomerate shortly afterwards. …Lost has the luxury of having Biolos at his helm, and as long as he is making boards for the world’s best surfers, the brand is likely to stay true to its roots.

There are some really cool boards there that might seem a little out of place here at Shred Sledz HQ, where things tend to skew a little more vintage. But Biolos is a shaper who knows his shit cold, and you can see the great care and thought that went into every aspect of these boards. In particular I love the clean Pilgrim / Lost logo on each board, which is a refreshing departure from …Lost’s usual cartoonish vibe. Check out the listings on Pilgrim for detailed notes from Biolos about the design of each board and the carefully considered design decisions that were made.

Finally, you can see a video interview between Pilgrim co-founder Chris Gentile and Biolos here.
