What the Lost Surfboards site says about the Lost Sub Scorcher 2 (Single Wing Swallow):

‘Ok, This was my favorite Shortboard all year. I wanted to make a board with all the positive traits of the SS2 (easy paddle and glide into waves, down line drive and holds speed though carves) but add more snap and release in the tail. A little more whip! I also didn’t want to change the rocker or positive attributes of the board. Taking influence from Mark “MR” Richards, and his “Super Twin” outline, I added a pronounced single wing, which reduced the tail area, then foiled the rails overall (especially through the tail ) making it easier to roll from side to side, and surf more on a rail. The dims are tweaked a bit from the DWSwallow, on most sizes, but the main ingredients remain. I would call it the easiest riding, all around pointy nose shortboard in our line. I ride them at 6’2″ 21″ 2.75″ (for groveling) to 6’4″ 21″ 2.75″ for every day surfing, and even have a magic 6’6″ 20.50 2.88″, which I rode in solid surf all over Europe this fall. Domestic bliss at its best.’

What people are saying about it:

“The Sub Scorcher 2 Single Wing Swallow is an updated version of the Sub Scorcher 2 with all of the same drive, glide into waves and paddle power. The single bump in the outline takes out some of the width in the tail giving you more maneuverability in your turns. It is a refined version of the popular Sub Scorcher. The 1/4″ vee in the tail has been removed, the rocker increased by about 1/8” and a lowered rail line, making the board looser to allow for a more vertical, in pocket style of surfing. To compensate for any loss of drive, the outline has been straightened by increasing nose width slightly.

The Single Wing Sub Scorcher 2 gives you all you want in an all rounder. Plenty of paddle power into waves with drive down the line and an added hip in the outline and foiled rails to really let you surf more on the rail.” – Boardcave

“The Lost Sub Scorcher 2 Single Wing Swallow is a mix between a shortboard and a fishboard, designed for small waves and easy to surf with.

Medium rocker, soft rails and concave on the hull. This board helps you to generate and maintain speed.” – Mundo-Surf

“Sick board! Rory tried to get me to buy that one — now I wish I did!” – andyevansparker on Instagram
