Lost Sub Blaster Review

What the Lost Surfboards site says about the Sub Blaster:

‘A blast from the past. Spawning from the “Flashback” model of 2010. It features the Flashbacks rocker, foil and volume and dimensions, smashed together with the Sub-Scorcher’s hugely popular outline. The Flashback in one of my all time favorite mushy wave boards but many people were put off by the radical tail shape. The 1980’s influenced bottom, featuring low rocker and a slight vee throughout, allows you to ride much more volume than you normally would (making waves easy to catch and connecting slow sections a breeze) and still be able to get the board on rail. Even though it’s thick, it doesn’t ride flat or boaty. Another benefit to vee bottoms is how they cut through chop and slop like a knife through butter. The squash tail is a perfect summer time toy and and I also made a round pin version that opens the design up to waves well overhead and even tubes. I made one for myself and surfed all over the Menatwais with it this spring. Rock it with bright neon colors, a 5 fin convertible set up and blast away summer boredom.’

What people think about it:

When I think about great paddling and the ability to deal with chop, I immediately think this board would be a blast(er) on the windy NE swell days at The Lighthouse here in Cape Hatteras (or any place similar). You can order this board squash or upsize it 2” with same width and thickness for a roundtail. The roundtail version will have more top end on the bigger days.” – Real Watersports

It’s a perfect summer time toy and Matt also made a round pin version that opens the design up to waves well overhead and even tubes. Matt made Sub-Blaster’s for himself and surfed all over the Menatwais with it. Rock it with bright neon colors, a 5 fin convertible set up and blast away summer boredom. Everything.” – Hydroflex

The Lost Sub Blaster is as the name may suggest is a Blast from the Past for Biolis & a follow on from the Flash Back of 2010. It’s a mixture of the Flashback & the Sub Scorchers super popular outline. This board has volume but doesn’t ride too much like a boat. Get it set up with some bright colours from yesteryear, take yourself back to the 80’s & enjoy the fun the Sub Blaster can bring!” – Tradewind Surf

A spin off the Flashback the Sub Blaster is a small mushy wave weapon equipped with the Flashback’s rocker, volume, and dimensions, but has the Sub Scorcher’s outline. Add a vee through the bottom and a squash tail and you have the Sub Blaster. A fast board which connects flat sections with ease but can still be put on rail. Ideal for your small to average waves but find/custom one with a round tail and it will lend itself to bigger and hollow waves into the head high range.” – Catalyst Shop

This 1980’s influenced blast from the past will work insane in mushier surf. Not only will you be able to catch heaps of waves, but you’ll be able to connect slower, flatter sections with ease.” – Swell
