The …Lost Sub Scorcher is Kolohe Andino’s small wave rip stick for maximizing gutless surf with a high performance design. This board is shorter and wider than your standard shortboard with a wide bump squashtail design. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a pro-only board. The Sub is EASY to surf and catch waves on due to the wider nose and flatter entry rocker.
Kolohe Andino’s grovel board… and ...LOST breakout hit of 2010. A blend of the old SD2 and the Scorcher, but squashed-n-wide. Low entry rocker, with a bit of tip flip, into a low tail rocker with shallow concaves through the center to straighten the rail line which makes it easier to lay such a wide platform on a rail. Our stubbiest shortboard yet, but it still carves like a real board. A forward wide point and the strong hip in the outline combine for drive and turning. Kolohe wanted to call it “The Trashcan Lid” because you don’t need to go dumpster diving to get one of these! Ride ‘em short-n-wide to feel the glide… it’s the easiest pointed nose board you will ever ride.

HYDROFLEX SUPERCHARGER TECHNOLOGY
Hydroflex 3D rooted vacuum bag tchnology infuses the fiberglass INTO the blank. This creates an ultra-strong bond between the two reducing the chances of delams that eventually lead to buckles. Made in the USA.
SuperCharger construction combines a hand shaped EPS blank with Hydroflex epoxy vacuum bag technology. Tune the flex by changing the air pressure inside. This is the lightest, most technologically advanced surfboard available.
Lasts 3x longer than standard PU/Poly boards.
"Small wave boards and bigger, high volume boards excel when they're really light. Hydroflex SuperCharger technology combines the lightest weight with a very strong build." ...Lost Shaper Matt Biolos
With Hydroflex Supercharger Technology, the flex of the board can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of compressed air within the surfboard. The board comes complete with an adapter and pump that connect to a valve on the board. By connecting the adaptor and pump to the valve, you can pump compressed air into, thus stiffening, the board… giving it less flex. To allow the board to have more flex, you simply press down on the needle in the valve with your finger to release air out. This allows the surfer to find their own optimal level of flex for the conditions, as opposed to boards that do not feature adjustable flex. A fringe benefit is that the outward pressure expels any water that might otherwise be absorbed if the board is dinged or cracked in the water. The boards are made from stringer-less EPS blanks and epoxy resin, but with a patented 3 dimensional glassing. The glassing anchors the fiberglass and epoxy resin laminate into the foam core, creating a root like structure, which greatly increases bonding strength and prevents delaminating. Advantages include…. Optimal flexibility and acceleration, high strength to weight ratio, no delams, and fewer breaks and buckles, completely customizable shapes and glassing, easy to repair and recyclable.
*The original Hydroflex pump is equipped with a custom pressure gauge and is included with the board for no extra charge.
