Lost Sub Scorcher 2 REAL Pro Review by Toby Diggens
Sometimes when you are browsing surfboards you come across a shape that you just can’t resist and it was basically this that drew me to the Lost Sub Scorcher 2. I was looking to switch out my old small wave board which I loved (Roberts Modern 80s) and wanted something that had a little less nose volume in order to have a little more performance versus the previous shape.
Once the board was in my hands I knew it felt good. Nice rails that felt not too beefy and still like a shortboard but a very flat rocker that would be getting me into waves early and with quick speed to take on the summer small wave standard.
The first impressions on the board were great, super easy paddle ins left me so much time to get two good pumps in to generate down the line speed for a turn. I have the double wing swallow tail which when laying into a rail feels really solid and compared to a squash requires a lot of back foot pressure to break out the tail into a slide. If you want a looser feel then ordering this board as a squash will give you an easier fin break.
Into Cutbacks and the board generated speed through the turn which I was most excited about as for Hatteras it tends to be that you get a good initial powerful section to hit followed by a tailing off of the wave that you can put a cutty into. Solid rebound and then into a speedy release back into the power section of the wave. I felt that this is due to the flatter rocker in the board and I was able to accelerate away for the next turn.
A word on sizing, I am 6’1 185lbs and bought the 5’11, its 30.11L and floats me perfectly. I can’t wait for summer when we are out of wetsuits and the board will get even more lively!
Definitely a must for anybody’s quiver who wants to surf fast and maintain a performance feel this summer.
