Lost Sub Scorcher Review

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

‘“I wanna board for 1′ mush. Something really short and wide, but still a short board…..something like Dane’s board.” –Kolohe Andino

The challenge was laid down. Starting with an old SD2: We squashed the dims to 5’5″x18.63″x 2.13″, lowered the entry rocker and shallowed the concave through the center to straighten the rail line for drive and make it easier to lay such a wide platform over on a rail. “Viola!” Our stubbiest short board yet, but it still carves like a real board. Kolohe wanted to call it “The Trashcan Lid” because you don’t need to go dumpster diving to get one of these!’

What people are saying about it:

“The Lost Sub Scorcher is your hybrid cross traditional performance shortboard for those looking to ride something shorter and wider but still performance focused. The low entry rocker, shallow concave with straight rail line allows you to surf this wider from rail to rail with ease. “ – BoardCave.com.au

“The Sub Scorcher is based off the SD2 but has been squished down and widened, making this the stubbiest short board offered by …Lost. Made for Kolohe Andino for 1′ foot mush while keeping its’ ability to be surfed progressively. Ideal for the surfer not wanting to ride a thorough bred hybrid/groveler when the waves are lack luster, however the Sub Scorcher will hold its’ own when the waves are chest high+.“ – CatalystShop.com

“This is actually a go-to when it is belly-high to a little overhead. The subtle hip in front of the fins makes it really snappy, and a moderate single concave through the tailblock keeps it powerful coming out of turns.” – Bobby Oliver on TheInertia.com

“The Lost Sub Scorcher surfboard is the stubbiest stick in the brand’s quiver. Don’t let the stocky look fool you, it carves like a true short board but still gives you drive in 1 foot mush.” – SurfDome.com
