Ian review the Lost Pro-Formance Driver 2.0 Surfboard: https://www.boardshop.co.uk/surfboards?brand_id=82&style=2093
The Driver 2.0 is the result of some rigorous testing and fine tuning by Lost’s star spangled pro team; specifically Kolohe Andino, Griffin Colapinto, Carissa Moore and young gun Caroline Marks. The Driver 2.0 directly reflects the teams requirements for the very latest needs of a performance surfer competing at the top tier.
Over the last couple of years the Driver has been subject to almost constant refinement on a monthly basis in an attempt to keep up with the evolvement of modern competition, performance surfing. Dozens of boards have been tweaked and fine-tuned benefiting not only the team riders but these improvements trickle down to the average Joe’s and Jane’s wanting the best they can get for their hard earned cash.
The latest refinements include; a slightly more relaxed entry rocker with the “no flip tip” delivering more glide and speed out the gate with no need to pump and the ability to carry speed through drawn-out turns. The nose has been slightly widened in the from 18″ for some front foot drive and also gives a stable platform for landing reverse and nailing those ‘tail wafts’. A bit more volume has been hidden through the centre with a pronounced ‘vee’ deck but still maintaining sensitive rails and does in no way feel corky. The rails are thinner but more boxy through the tail for quick heel to toe transitions and added hold when slicing through high speed turns. The rail rocker has been slightly increased which creates more curve and a deeper concave under the back foot, delivering increased ‘pop’ and much better performance off the tail.
Overall the Driver 2.0 benefits from a little extra volume and slightly more generous dimensions giving the pros more glide and momentum and the Bros get to ride a forgiving shortboard the same as their idols.
