Backyards of Key West Podcast with Mark Baratto 86: Lost Boy Creations – Apparel For The Wanderlust

In this episode, Mark Baratto sits down with Lost Boy creator and leader himself (no not Rufio) Matthew Atkinson.

We learn how Matt made his way to St. John, how he became a shaper of wooden boats and boards, how he made his way to Key West, and how the origin of Lost Boy Creations came about.

Live like a Lost Boy

Lost Boy:{lost boi} noun

We count ourselves among a hand full of brave, wild, and fun-loving explorers who followed their wandering souls to the land of sand and sun. We strive to bring a sense of youth, style and paradise to all through our “adventure” woodworking, apparel and wanderlust lifestyle.

  • A Lost Boy knows what it means to truly live.
  • A Lost Boy follows his or her passion.
  • Lost Boys do not fall into one religion, gender, race, orientation, or title.
  • We roam until we find our path.
  • To conform is not in our DNA.
  • Our passions are our professions.
  • The lifestyle of a Lost Boy is not bought, taught or learned.
  • A Lost Boy lies waiting to be discovered in all of us.
  • We’re adventurers, dreamers, and friends; boarders, boaters and builders.
  • We’re one of a kind and kind to all.
  • We’re far from where we started but never alone.

Our roots can be traced from the mainland to the small island of St. John, in the US Virgin Islands and beyond. After nearly a decade on St. John, Irma came to claim her bounty. We had to make some difficult decisions but rolled with the punches.

These days you can find us at the end of the road. We’ll be bumping quality tunes and handcrafting our custom surfboards, paddleboards, and whatever else we can dream up down at 225 Petronia St.

We’re here when we are, and adventuring when we’re not.

Join the movement. Find your Neverland. #livelikealostboy and share it with everyone…
