"Surfboard trends tend to move in circles. The last few years have been highlighted by a move toward shorter, wider, higher volume surfboards.Because of shapers melding these elements, with creative combinations of rocker, foil, bottom contours and fin clusters, the everyday surfer has benefitted dramatically. But what’s next? In the end, we feel it comes back to a user friendly, high performance, modern shortboard. A shortboard that isn’t impossible to jump onto after riding a stubby hybrid everyday for a month… doesn’t feel long or stiff, or paddle like an Alia. A short board that works in everything from 2’ mush to 6’ grinders. The Driver…Developed when one of the bigger, more powerful, yet still new school, surfers on tour came looking for something special for the California contest season. The design concept wasn’t new, but the resulting board is. Defined by a long, straight rocker through the middle of the board that then lifts to a healthy nose rocker (so the board redirects when put on a rail) and a low, but curvy tail rocker that’s moved way back under the rear foot (for quick turns in tight sections). The same goes for the outline: It’s long and straight through the middle (netting a wider than average nose and rear hip area, allowing it to be ridden close to traditional shortboard widths with a lot of curve from just in front of the fins, through the tail. The wide point is pushed further back, creating a turning fulcrum between the feet. These elements, combined with a flattish deck line, full rails and a thickness flow that holds volume into the tips, nets a board that glides through flats, holds long arcing carves and still snaps in the pocket. Unlike any other board in our line and is not only being quickly adopted by top team riders pros looking for something new, but we honestly feel that the Driver is the board that can get us all back onto a modern High Performance thruster shortboard. Recommended to be ridden close to typical shortboard dims, with higher volume than normal due to the design." -Lost.
