…Lost Beach Buggy Surfboard Model Description: Designed specifically with input and feedback from world tour veteran and high performance surfing icon, Taj Burrow. This collaboration/collection stems from the work done to satisfy TBs needs for his trademark brand of razor sharp and explosive, cutting edge competitive and free surfing. With two World Tour wins (Snapper Rocks and Steamer Lane) in Lost and Taj’s first full season (2012) of working together, the results more than speak for themselves.
Derived from the Whiplash-TB. The TB-Stepdown is more of an “every-mans” high performance shortboard. Used by many WT and Qualifying Series competitors, because it works equally well in small junk surf. Featuring the Same WL-TB, hyper extended tail rocker (for tight radius arcs off the back foot) but a significantly more relaxed entry rocker, which combined with a wider nose allows for more drive and forward momentum , and stability, with a bigger landing platform from reverse and tweaked airs. A wider hip and tail block is added to the outline in the tail for more lift at low speeds, but the tail width at 12″ is relatively the same as the WL- TB. This allows for superior precision and control than most all other “grovel” boards. With the centerline and rail volume is carried farther into the rails and out to nose and tail the TB-stepdown is designed to be ridden 1-2″ shorter than the WLashTB. In the right size, this is a HP shortboard that can be ridden and enjoyed by most surfers of average to above average ability…not just for skinny kids and pros.
