  • The SUB-DRIVER is Lost Mayhem's most consistently successful “WQS” competition board.

Year after year, competitors around the world request Sub Drivers as a special weapon for the varied and unpredictable surf of the World Qualifying Series.

They first developed in 2010, for Kolohe Andino. In 2011 Kolohe won 5 WQS events during his WCT qualifying season...all on Sub-Drivers. Mick Fanning took notice, and that same year, famously grabbed one of Kolohe’s old discarded SUB-DRIVERs and blazed through many heats at The Lowers Pro, claiming the board “completely changed his perception of what a competition board can be”. He later carried, and used one, multiple times during his 2013 World Title run. Since then, the list of surfers finding success on this design is long.

The SUB DRIVER SWALLOW loves small to moderate surf. It’s stable, with plenty of built in drive, and easy to catch waves and generate speed on. The wide nose and tail make for a stable platform in small waves and at low speeds. Combined with low overall rocker and full rails, the board can be ridden pretty short. The SUB DRIVER SWALLOW not only benefits the Pros, it really is perfect for most of the “Bros” too”. Over the course of 2018, we found repeated team success with a new “Hip Swallow” tail, and are now offering them for 2019. Somewhat radical in its design, its most prominent features being the slightly wider hip and tail block, and noticeable spiral vee behind the rear fin. The full nose provides stability for landing airs. The wide hip, and tail block creates a sort of bite to the wide tail. It works well with hyper extended rail rocker and spiral vee, to allow the SUB DRIVER SWALLOW to be surfed more tightly in the pocket than the traditional squash tail. The wide nose and tail make for a stable platform in small waves and at low speeds. Combined with low overall rocker and full rails, the board can be ridden pretty short.
