This surfboard review is on the Lost "Driver" surfboard. The Driver was originally launched in 2010-2011 and became a favorite amongst Lost team riders and surfers around the world. The main purpose for the release of the Driver in 2017 was to give the surf community the opportunity to purchase a board off the rack in surf shops with the same glass lay up as the Lost Pro team riders. With this option the boards are lighter, more responsive, and better flex. The one major draw back to this Pro-formance glass job is they don't last as long. I ordered two Drivers with the exact same DIMS in two different constructions. My thoughts around this were to see how the Driver performs in small waves with the Carbon Wrap EPS/Epoxy construction compared to the PU/Polyester Resin. Throughout the entire review I switched off riding them both but in the end I gravitated towards the PU/Poly as a favorite for this board review in 2-6' surf. I will say that the Driver is one of new favorites for 2017 and I recommend this board for surfers in the intermediate to advanced skill levels. This board is user friendly, very fast and responsive, and it has great flow too.
