Lost Driver 2.0 Squash LightspeedLost Surfboards
The latest Pro-formance Shortboard model from ...Lost is the DRIVER 2.0 The design is a result of an ongoing process of direct feedback, refinement and rigorous testing from team riders (specifically Kolohe Andino, Griffin Colapinto, Carissa Moore and Caroline Marks) to meet their performance demands.
Despite the pro focus in this model's development, the Driver 2.0 (in the right dimensions) is actually somewhat easier to ride than many of the HP shortboards on the market. With it's moderate “no flip tip” entry rocker (for plenty of board speed off take off) and the touch of extra area in the front end (for even more front foot drive) this isn't a board you'll have to be super precise with positioning to get it going. These features also make it more appropriate than many HP shortboards for our local slopey wave faces.
The extra area up front also creates a stable platform for your front foot, for landing late drops and manoeuvres in critical parts of the wave. The rocker and outline combined with a bit of extra foam along the stringer (with a more pronounced “vee” deck) and low, yet forgiving rails gives you great paddle power and drive, while retaining enough sensitivity and the ability to easily engage the rail and knife it into the wave face. As a result, the added thickness does not feel overly “corky”. The thinner, yet boxy rails, with, with more edge through the tail gives you quick reaction times from heel to toe. With plenty of control over hold and release at high speeds.
A touch of extra rail rocker through the tail has been added for ability to break line and draw nice, tight radius arcs. This combination of rail rocker with a deeper concave under the rear foot has been used for extra POP. Overall, the dimensions and volume are slightly more generous from previous incarnations of this design, affording you more momentum and extra glide, while still retaining a proper HP responsive ride.
