REAL Review








Taj took a few contests off the WSL Tour schedule to be at home for the birth of his first child. This meant surfing for fun, rather than surfing in competition heats. He used this time to pair up with Matt Biolos and design something shorter and more fun to surf than your standard, ultra high performance shortboard. The result is a smash hit, and what could become …Lost’s best selling shortboard in the 2016 season and beyond.

Tech Specs:
Carbon Wrap Technology
• Full figured, shorter length, shortboard design
• More foam than what you’re used to seeing in “pro model” shortboards
• Conservative rocker
• Generous tailblock width
• Single to double concave bottom shape
• Thruster design, 5-fin available on custom orders

What We Like:
Let’s get straight to the point of what most of you are concerned with. “Is this a board I can surf?” If you look back at the Taj lineage of ..Lost pro model boards – Whiplash, Beach Buggy and Sub Buggy – they were all lower volume boards, designed to be ridden aggressively by the highest caliber of surfers. Outside of that group of talented individuals, they were pretty narrow and chippy for most.

The ...Lost Baby Buggy (left) and Quiver Killer (right).


The Baby Buggy is a completely different animal. It’s shorter, wider, fuller, flatter and has a nice sized tailblock for extra drive. It’s a VERY accessible design for most surfers and a board that clicks with you and makes you a better surfer. The overall design of the board is tuned for the waves that normal human beings get to ride (not pro surfers at fantasy locations in a heat of 2-4 people). This means the board excels in average surf, but can also be taken in surf outside the norm, due to the balanced feel and the confidence it inspires. It works in small waves, better waves, mush and punch. For those of you that have been turned of by shortboards, thinking hybrids are easier and more forgiving, the Baby Buggy gets you thinking about shortboards again. Not only thinking about them, RAVING about them. It’s a solid “go to” performer is a wide range of surf.

We got to surf our Baby Buggy for 8 days in Nicaragua while staying with the crew at Surfari Charters. We surfed it in everything from thigh high zippers up to overhead, thick spitting beach breaks. This board never disappointed and had everyone without one, ordering their own by the end of the trip.

Dialing in the ...Lost Baby Buggy on some dreamy Nica points.

Coming primarily from the hybrid camp, this board just makes shortboard surfing super easy and “high performance”. Every one of your turns is faster, sharper and more vertical. You also find yourself fitting in more turns per wave, finding more barrels and throwing more spray. It’s a bad ass board that you don’t have to be a bad ass to surf. If you’re already coming from an all shortboard quiver, this board has a nice balanced feel, is super fast, and can cover an insane range of conditions, all the way down to metro reality mush.  

Insider Info:
The …Lost V2 Shortboard has been a perennial favorite at REAL and around the world for the last several years. The Taj Baby Buggy has that same type of all around feel, but in a fuller package, with a touch more rocker and a wider tail block. The wider tail block is key to extending the reality wave range, and that’s something the standard V2 shortboard didn’t have for sub pro surfers.




Just about the only thing that went “wrong” when surfing this board was under-sizing the fins the first session. With the normal fins we would use (FCS2 Mayhem Larges) this board felt like it needed to be driven solely off the rail, with no squirt from the fins. It also had a slightly “wobbly” feel to it on high-speed bottom turns. We switched to a slightly larger fin (FCS2 Performer XLs) and this corrected the problem and made the board pure magic. Goes to show that fins make a difference, and even if you ride the same fins in everything, that you shouldn’t be closed minded to try something else when your go to set isn’t working. Obviously, this board and fins are for a larger surfer (215 lbs) so take the info gathered and apply it to your weight and fin sizing to dial in your Baby Buggy.




Why You Want This Board:
You want a no nonsense shortboard that brings high performance to the masses and to reality conditions. This board is a blast!  

...Lost Description:
After 18 or so years of non-stop World Touring, it’s fair that Mr. Burrow would want to enjoy himself a little. This past summer, with the upcoming birth of his first child and knowing he would be passing on a couple events to be home for the big day, Taj requested “Something short ‘n fun, but still a (normal) board. Nothing too fishy. Right about, or just over, my typical volume, but just squished down and playful”. Going to work, we started with his 5’9 18.25” 2.25” 24.50cl (personal dims) BeachBuggy, and re-visioned it at 5’6” 18.63” 2.25”. We filled in the rails and foil until it sat at 25 liters flat, then relaxed the entire rocker, so the new bottom curve nestled perfectly within the curve of the original 5’9”. We hoped he would still be able to draw the same lines in spite of a much shorter rail line. We sent the first one to Tahiti and after his unfortunate exit from the Teahupoo event, I received the best kinda text you could ask for: “That little board is ludicrous. I just surfed a soft little beachy here in Tahiti, and the thing went bananas”. After a couple subtle requested tweaks to rails and tail thickness, we made a couple more, and decided on a fitting name. Like every new father, there’s impending daddy duties and Mr. Burrow needs a new ride….The Baby Buggy! Domestication with a High Performance twist. If it’s good enough for TB…It’s good enough for anybody. Taj rides his 3” shorter and with a bit more volume than his typical stick, but average surfers can be more generous and go with added volume and maybe only 1"-2” shorter than a typical HPSB. For custom orders, it’s also just fine to order this board in your typical dims.

Carbon Wrap Technology:









Carbon Wrap is a patented surfboard technology, structurally engineered for optimum flex and performance. Originally created by Gold Coast surfboard manufacturer, Dan MacDonald, to be lightweight without sacrificing strength and provide next level performance. Carbon Wrap eliminates the standard wooden stringer, alters traditional flex principles and re-envisions the way a surfboard’s flex patterns are created and controlled.

Ultra-light, EPS cores are “wrapped” in an exoskeleton of strategically positioned, carbon fiber bands. Aligned together at the nose, they gradually curve outward toward the rails. The curve creates and controls a unique torsional flex that livens up as it nears the tail, just in front of the fins. The carbon then “wraps” from the bottom, around the rails and onto the deck. This unique method creates Carbon Wrap’s lively flex that loads and releases... resulting in next level speed and drive.

Running along the rails, on the deck, the carbon acts as a rear foot power point, (increasing drive and control) and a patch to minimize pressure denting. Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are encased with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and our exclusive carbon deck inlay, which is strategically positioned to add fast re-flex memory under our surfer’s stance and allow subtle, natural deck caving around the arch of the front foot. By tapering the carbon into long, pointed ends, forward and aft, the flex bends out naturally towards the nose and tail.

A full layer of 45 degree “X-Glass”, encases the deck. The X-Glass’s flat, bi-axel weave dramatically adds strength adds strength without rigidity, or excess weight and allows the board to maintain flex while alleviating crease points created by standard, 90 degree fiberglass. The 45 degree weave radiates foot pressure outward, directly connecting the foot to a longer section of the rail, adding greater edge control.

Carbon Wrap Technology: Lightweight, without sacrificing strength. Increases drive and provides and unique and lightning fast re-flex effect, propelling your surfing into the next level of performance.

Build Process:



• Ultra light, fused cell, EPS blanks provide the core for our unique construction. They are shaped and then "wrapped" in an exoskeleton of strategically positioned, carbon fiber bands.
• Aligned together at the nose, our exclusive carbon fiber bands run the length of the board, curving outward towards the rails, creating and controlling our unique longitudinal and torsional flex pattern.


• The carbon bands "wrap" around the rails and onto the deck. It's this unique method that creates our lively flex that loads and releases...resulting in speed and drive.
• The carbon that runs to the tail acts as a power point (for drive and control) under the rear foot and also as a tail patch to minimize pressure denting.


• "Web-fused" carbon deck reinforcement: Adds strength and drive, smoothly tapers flex and prevents the deck from carving rail to rail.
• 45 degree "X-Glass" adds impact and longitudinal strength, with minimal weight and encourages flex. This radiates foot pressure outward to a longer section of the rail, adding greater edge control.


• Using optically brightened epoxy resin, the boards are then laminated with a proprietary composite of fiberglass and carbon fiber.
• Carbon Wrap increases drive and provides a unique and lightning fast re-flex effect, propelling your surfing into the next level of performance.
