What the Lost Surfboards site says about the Sub Scorcher 2 (Hip Squash):

‘The squash was actually the original tail when developing the SS-2. Developed with Kolohe and Julian, as a flat, fast, no bullshit small wave toy. I got side tracked and added the DoubleWing Swallow before launching in 2013. During the course of two years, a few top athletes have nailed massive results on this bump squash tail version. Most notably Carissa Moore and Tyler Wright winning back to back US Opens, in HB (in 2013 and 2014 respectively) With its low rocker, it requires a surfer that commits to their turns. It likes soft, open faced waves and pushes back at the surfer. It reacts well when surfed with a powerful rear foot. Pound for Pound, “Riss and Tyler are two of the most powerful surfers on earth, and the results show what this board is capable of with the right pilot. The stock dims are tweaked to be closer to what a young, advanced…not so domesticated, surfer would ride. They are not necessarily set up for retail sales.’

What people are saying about it:

“A fresh twist to the extremely popular Sub Scorcher. The premise is simple: removal of the Sub-Scorcher’s trademark 1/4″ vee from the last 6″ of the tail and increasing the rocker about 1/8″ and lowering the rail-line 1/8″. This loosened up the board to better allow a more vertical and in the pocket attack. At the same time, to counter any possible loss of drive, the outline was straightened with a touch wider nose. The overall volume is similar to the original, but the thickness flow has been held further forward to allow it to be ridden very short. All of these subtle changes add up to make a board that features extremely effective use of the rocker, foil and rail line in a small package. Despite Pros such as Julian and Kolohe being so involved in the development of this design, it is actually a great every-man’s small to average wave shortboard, with a relatively pulled in pointed nose, in place of a full nose hybrid or traditional fish type design.” – Surf Station Store

“…a board which will vertically attack the pocket better without losing any drive. Ideal for small to average wave size.” – Catalyst Shop

“A high performance shortboard that’ll allow the average surfer or older guy to compete for waves in crowds instead of reaching for the hybrid.” – Boardshop

“That looks so sick.” – user tigher_westhill on Instagram
