    Lost Driver 3.0 Stub Light Speed Surfboard - Futures

    Size

    All new, every day, step-down, performance player, developed with Kolohe Andino. The 3.0_STUB is a direct derivative of the long time developed, but recently released, DRIVER3.0. A board designed with elite level surfers, looking for the  “Ultimate Driving Machine”. Primarily tested in and around the waves of the World Tour (not necessarily the typical 1′-3’ soft slop that most of us suffer through, daily) the DRIVER3.0 still left room at the lower end for higher performance in lesser waves. Enter the 3.0STUB.  A stepped-down and “stubbed”, low end/high performance, smaller wave-ripping machine. Unlike the Sub-Drivers (Lost's other step-down performance boards) the 3.0_STUB does not use any vee in the tail. Instead it features a continuous rocker/concave combination. This is the primary difference between the two. While noticeably relaxed from DRIVER3.0 rocker, it is still loose and lively,  quick and easy to release, under the rear foot. Fitting more effortlessly into small pockets or quick dumpy sections that the SubDrivers. Perfect for small beach break. The similarities in rocker, bottom contours and outline, maintain a closer feel, when switching between the DRIVER3.0 and 3.0STUB. That was the goal and that is the result.

    FEATURES: …When compared to the DRIVER3.0

    • Relaxed entry rocker, with a slightly wider nose area.
    • Relaxed tail rocker, with a slight hip and wider tail block (but not as wide as the SubDrivers.)
    • More width overall, with thickness carried further into the nose and under the rear foot.
    • Deeper single and double concave combination, for more lift, with plenty or rail curve, in lesser surf.
    • Slightly flatter deck, with soft , forgiving rails.

    Working with Kolohe, who after riding DRIVER3.0 in proper surf, wanted to feel like he was riding the same board, out at T-Street, or small Trestles. Riding SubDrivers “felt almost stiff”. He wanted board that required no adjustment to technique and coupld swap seamlessly back and forth with the DRIVER3.0.

    “Why not just make a step-down board off of that?”

    Which is exactly what we did. We got them under the feet of our WQS crew: Crosby Cola, Cole Houshmand, Eli Hanniman and Michael Dunphy, who immediately responded with positive feedback and now carry in their small wave, Challenger series, arsenal. If you’re passionate about performance surfing, riding performance surfboards…and tend to do so in average to sub-par surf, then the 3.0STUB is for you. Designed to be ridden just 1” shorter than a DRIVER3.0 and our stock dims reflect that. Ex: If you ride a 6’0″ DRIVER3.0, the 5’11″ 3.0STUB, should slide in perfectly. Together they make for a perfectly paired duo of modern, high performance vehicles.

    About Lost Surfboards

    The Lost Surfboard brand began in 1985 with now legendary shaper Matt Biolos and a bunch of school friends started up 'team lost' that would spend their time between snowboarding at Mt. Baldy, skateboarding in Upland at the Pipeline and surfing Dana Point. Team Lost scribbled their name on books, shirts, tables and eventually, a clothing brand was born. In 1987 Lost Head Shaper Matt Biolos began sanding surfboards fresh out of high school. Adopting the name "Mayhem" (an ode to the second model he shaped). Matt 'Mayhem' Biolos shaped 20 boards his first year. Not too many people were ordering boards from “Mayhem” yet, so to make money he continued to sand surfboards and began to paint designs on them along with a handwritten LOST wherever he could. Surfers like Christian Fletcher and Matt Archbold were getting Biolos paint jobs. Working with some big shaping names in the California scene like Timmy Patterson, Jim Fuller, Terry Senate, and Randy Sleigh and getting plenty of feedback from top surfers, his shaping ability was able to develop and from there grew the Lost Brand into a world wide phenomenon.
