Lost Sub Driver Review

What the Lost Surfboards site has to say about the Sub Driver:

‘The board that Kolohe Andino rode as a WQS surfer, and used to qualify for the WCT (at 17 years old) . Probably the most popular and successful small wave contest board we have ever made. Similar to The Driver, but with a wider nose and significantly wider tail block. The low tail rocker works with a generous nose lift. It commands and demands a surfer to really use their rear foot, and commit to turns. Not for a flicky, front footed snappy surfer, but for proper rail and tail driving. This is also the board that Mick Fanning pulled out of our rafters, and used in the Hurley Pro 2012, at Lowers. It basically forced him to re-think what his idea of the modern contest surfboard was. Kolohe qualifying on, and Mick’s performance on and praise of The Sub Driver, are two major points in …Lost’s competitive board building history.’

What people are saying about it:

“Shorter than the Driver with a little bit more width in the nose and tail, plus a little more foam out on the rails makes this board incredibly fast and powerful in gutless to “average” surf. Just like the Sub Scorcher, you can take it bigger surf than you think, so don’t be surprised when you’re getting some of your best waves on head high days.“ – Hydroflex-Surfboards.com

“The Lost Sub Driver has been designed and refined with Kolohe Andino as an all round option for small to medium waves. The Sub Driver is the love child of the Sub Scorcher outline and the rocker, concave and rails of the Driver model. It fits in-between these two models as a versatile performance shortboard, perfect for knee high beach breaks or playful hollow reef breaks.” – BoardCave.com.au

“The Sub-Driver is another magical concoction made by Matt Biolos and Kolohe Andino. It’s a great all-around small to mid-wave sized wave board for both average and exceptional surfers.” – Swell.com

“If you think of the Scorcher/Sub Scorcher relationship and then apply to the Driver, you can imagine how sick this board is. Shorter than the Driver with a little bit more width in the nose and tail, plus a little more foam out on the rails makes this board incredibly fast and powerful in gutless to “average” surf.“ – RealWaterSports.com
