Hi Matt I currently have a stock driver 510 at 26 ltrs vol, I was thinking of getting a step down and the sub driver springs to mind. Do I keep the same vol and go shorter and a touch wider. I was thinking a stock 509, or ticker 508. I am 39 fit advrage surfer living in the cold north of Scotland . Cheers paul.


Boardcave.com April 22, 2014 at 1:17 am

Hi Paul, Yea the 5'9 would be a good option in the Sub Driver. If your happy with the float and volume of your current Driver. Going a little wider will add surface area under your chest so it will also plane a little easier in the paddle and when your up and surfing. If you want an option for smaller weaker waves, also check out the new V3 Rocket: http://www.boardcave.com/surf-brand/lost-surfboards-mayhem/shortboard-performance/v3-rocket/ email info@boardcave.com.au if you have any further questions.


Nick Davies June 6, 2014 at 8:30 am

My names nick. Im interested in 2 models, the v2 shortboard and the taj beach buggy and mainly the differences between them. eg, at 6'0 the v2 sb is narrower then the bb and both have the same thickness. WOuld this mean the v2sb is slightly more manouverable in the smaller stuff but due to the rocker and the deeper concave the bb will handle bigger, more critical waves better ? If you compare the nose width of the 2 boards at 6' which is wider ?
Im an intermediate surfer 6'1 and 79kg and im after a board to do the 2-4,5 ft beach breaks and occasionally point. Id just like your opinion on what would be best for me. At this stage im leaning towards the bb, however I think the 19 1/4 standard bb width at 6'0 is too wide for me. Was thinking about ordering a custom with 6'1, 19 1/8, 2 3/8. Just wondering what your thoughts are on that and an estimate at the volume. Im very keen for your advice and dont be afraid to tel me if you think im totally heading down the wrong path with this ! :)
ps i notice T 6' the bb is a 1/4 of an inch wider, they both have the same thickness, yet the bb has almost half litle less volume… is this because it foils out in the rails towards the nose and tail way more, and cos of the deeper single concave ?
Thanks for your time. Nick


Boardcave Australia July 3, 2014 at 8:39 am

Hi Nick, sorry about the delay in getting back to you. Your comment was private. There are two versions of the V2 Shortboard. The V2 Domesticated is designed for a range of surfers and it's a high volume option that's a bit more forgiving for a range of waves. The standard V2 Shortboard is the pro version which is thinner and more responsive but not as versatile as the domesticated version of the V2 Shortboard. I wouldn't go too thin if this will be your go to everyday option. Please can you send through your current board size and how often you surf to info@boardcave.com.au we can then recommend the best Lost model and size.


Kathi Dy July 4, 2014 at 7:19 am

That didnt answer my question at all…
Thanks for your "help" boardcave but I think ill take my buisness elsewhere


Boardcave Australia July 5, 2014 at 12:10 am

Hi Kathi, We have no record of your question. Please email info@boardcave.com.au and we will get back to straight away.


Agustin Cabanillas July 11, 2014 at 8:44 pm

Hi, My name is Agus. I will buy really soon a Lost RV and a V2. So im a beat confused about best quad set up…..I love FCS fins. I will like to have feedback about FCS compressor fins. Are they the best choice for the RV? Thanks for your time!!!!


Nick Davies July 13, 2014 at 5:07 am

Didnt answer my questions at all either, now id rather buy direct from the shaper or from a surf shop anyday ! Thanks but no thanks boardcave


Boardcave Australia July 16, 2014 at 8:28 am

Hi Agus, yes you are spot on, the FCS Compressor fin template goes really well with the RV for quad surfing. Will you be ordering the board as a 5 fin or just a straight Quad? http://www.boardcave.com.au/surf-brand/lost-surfboards-mayhem/hybrid-concept/the-rv/


Bruno Alva September 22, 2014 at 3:09 am


I recently bought a Lost Rock Up and I used it in a really hollow barrelling wave. The drop was very difficult, my nose stuck in 3 out of 5 waves aprox. I think its because of the low nose rocker… I was wondering if the lost mini driver will work better for this wave?



Pietro Zanaboni November 3, 2014 at 11:12 pm

Hi guys can u tell me the volume for a v3 rocket 5.5 19 2 1/4 please?i asked Lost a Question on the board page the 9th of October no answer ….should I get a #4 lol?:)


Craig Bemrose January 15, 2015 at 1:36 am

When are the 2015 lost models available on this site?


Boardcave Australia January 15, 2015 at 4:38 am

They are available now. We are currently in the process of uploading them to the website. Is there any model in particular that you were after? If you send through details to todd@boardcave.com.au we can get your order sorted!


Boardcave Australia January 15, 2015 at 4:50 am

Hi Bruno Alva. The mini driver is basically like a small wave version of the rock up model. The mini driver has a low entry rocker which means more than likely you would have the same issue with this board. Maybe you could look at getting something with a bit more entry rocker like the whiplash or beach buggy model.


Boardcave Australia January 15, 2015 at 4:56 am

Hi Pietro. We apologise for the delayed response. It is very hard to calculate exact volumes as volumes for custom dimensions need to be calculated using CAD systems at the Lost factory.
I would say that the volume in a 5'5 x 19 x 2 1/4 V3 rocket would come out to be between 25.7 and 26.2 litres roughly.


Craig Bemrose January 15, 2015 at 5:56 am

Cool. Was emailing Todd last week. He was very helpful. Deciding between sub scorcher 2 single wing, v2 grinder and v2 domesticated


Carl Pawling March 4, 2015 at 11:12 pm

Hi how come it's extra for five fins on some boards and not others lost boards

Boardcave Australia April 9, 2015 at 1:50 am

Hi Carl, this is because Lost recommends these boards with the 5-fin setup so it's included. Please, email service@boardcave.com.au


Oliver Hawksworth April 18, 2015 at 8:56 pm

Just wondering if you had thoughts on driver sizing… I wanted to go 5'9 18.63 2.20.. Vol? Maybe around 25 I think..
I'm 5'9 67kg true intermediate.. Just can't decide.. Thanks


Boardcave Australia April 20, 2015 at 3:24 am

Hi Oliver. It is hard to calculate exact volumes without inputting these dimensions into the Lost CAD system under the driver file but I can give you a close estimate.
The 5'9 x 18.63 x 2.20 driver model would come in around 25.3 – 26 litres. This is spot on for the amount of volume you should be surfing. Hope that helps!


Oliver Hawksworth April 21, 2015 at 11:26 am

Thanks guys..
Very helpful and pretty much same response to others..
Again thank you.


Boardcave Australia June 24, 2015 at 6:41 am

Hi Johnny, sorry we don't deliver to Taiwan at the moment. However, international customers can select to organise their own shipping. Let me know if you need further advice on this. Email service@boardcave.com.au or chat live.


Darkey Treadwell August 3, 2015 at 9:11 pm

What would work best as a step up to a puddle jumper?
A E Z up or a Stretch RV and will they work in " slim dims " to get a little more length. Idealy i would like a 6' 2" at about 36 litres


Boardcave Australia August 4, 2015 at 3:22 pm

They are both similar, but compared to the Puddle Jumper, the Stretch RV is probably a better step up…a lot of the same characteristics, but with the double bump pulled in tail to keep you floating, but able to hold in a steep face.


Nicolai Notter January 21, 2016 at 10:39 pm


I'm a big Lost fan.
But somehow I don't get used to the Round Up.

What do you think about a Beach Buggy (Round Tail), or Whiplash, or Pocket Rocket for 4-8 ft as my step up from the Sub buggy, if it's firing?

I have been on a big trip and bought the Round Up for WA and even surfed the big swell end of June in Indo with the Round Up. It's my first ever Step Up. It really holds incredibly well, but too well somehow haha. I had the feeling, that I couldn't turn it easy enough, but I guess for a step up it turns really well – it's just how step ups work I guess and I know that one of the main ideas of the board is, to make it userfriendly.

I am only a intermediate landlocked surfer, so I am 99% of my time not in a barrel situation, but I like to surf at all wave sizes on my trips – its just more down the line outside of the barrel and open face carving, when it gets really big.
I was to unstable, when surfing 6-8ft G-Land on my Misfit Truffle Shuffle (5'10 Roundtail Custom order), thats why I bought the Round Up for the bigger days.
I was happy to have more confidence for Margies Main break and North Point, but for example in Fiji, when I was surfing Frigates and it was not crazy big, I prefered riding my 5'7 V-3 Rocket instead of the Round up and chose large fins instead to have more stability, because you could do a lot of turns usually, after the first hollow section. The same in Raglan, although it was big, but not perfect and barreling. Only on the really big days (8ft+) I thought the Round Up is the better choice to get in earlier and to have more stability, even though it's not meant for 8ft+.

This is why I think about buying a Beach Buggy (Round Tail), Whiplash, Pocket Rocket because I guess they would maybe feel more like a standard short boards but still hold well on 4-8ft. If it's really 8ft or bigger I would probably buy a 6'3 Double up.

I am 38yrs, 180cm, 70kg and intermediate (to advanced maybe).
After leaving my Misfit 5'10 truffle shuffle (25,5l) in Bali my quiver consists of:

5'7 v3 Rocket (28,3l)
5'11 Sub Buggy (27,3l)
5'10 Round up (28,6l)

Many thanks in advance!



Boardcave Australia January 25, 2016 at 12:17 am

Hi Nicolai, I would recommend going with the pocket rocket for waves between 4-8 ft if you want something that rides a bit more like a shortboard since you don't like the feeling of the round up. I would recommend the pocket rocket with the standard squash tail which will be better for turns and will have the board feeling a little looser than your round up. You could go for the pocket rocket in the 5'11 or 6'0 dimensions.


Nicolai Notter January 25, 2016 at 12:30 am

Boardcave Australia Thanks a lot. Do you think it's far enough ahead of the sub buggy in terms of better/bigger waves? I actually prefer round tails for bigger surf. Will there be a round tail option? Any other advices which board could be good fit? Somehow it's crazy how many boards are on offer from Lost, but at the same time, if you are not the biggest hybrid fan on the one hand (or you have already one like my v-3) and you are not a semi professional high performance surfer on the other hand, you don't have the feeling that it's easy to find a shortboard for bigger and better waves…


Boardcave Australia January 25, 2016 at 4:28 am

Nicolai Notter The whiplash and beach buggy models are other good options if you want a high performance shortboard that you can turn easier than your round up. I think you'll be better with a squash tail as any other high performance board with a round tail or rounded pin will more than likely feel similar to your round up which you didn't like.


Nicolai Notter January 25, 2016 at 12:13 pm

Boardcave Australia thanks guys!

Paddles well and catches waves easily. Turns well and easy to generate speed. Only issue is when it gets a bit steep but board is not built for that.

Incredible in mushy / small surf below 3ft. So much speed. Wide enough to push around sections and through weak parts of waves. But compared with other grovellers I have surfed it seems to be much more responsive and manoeuvrable. Probably because I'm riding it 6 inches shorter than what I would normally go for. I struggle to harness the speed and looseness at takeoff on larger more powerful waves though. On punchier 3ft+ days it wants to skate out a bit from under me, I have some larger fins on order to try and combat this issue.

Trent - / 45Yrs / 188 cm / 92kg / 4 - Intermediate / Advanced Beach Buggy by Taj Burrow 6' 3" x 19 5/8" x 2 9/16" x 33.3L
The Taj Burrow Beach Buggy lives up to the hype. I really like the lower front and extended tail rocker which means the board is fast under front foot and will go anywhere you want it to in a variety of waves. This board has a lively and responsive feel and I am impressed with the quality of the build. By far the best of the three boards I have bought this year. Surfed it at the local reef breaks and Indo as well. Highly recommended.

I have 2 Beach Buggys. The 6'4 is the only one that I have changed from stock dimensions to suit me as a step up. This board performs awesome in over head surf & loves being surfed as a quad set up. I ride this board at 36 litres after 35 years of surfing. I find beach buggy to be one of the best boards I have ever surfed and couldn't be happier with quality of Lost boards!

MICHAEL - / 30Yrs / 185 cm / 80kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced V2 Rocket 5' 10" x 19 3/4" x 2 7/16" x 31L
Paddles superbly. I'm getting into waves earlier than on my old shortboard (6'2" John Carper NX-1) with speed right from take-off. Finding I can hold much more speed through big drawn out carves. Feel like I'm surfing better and really driving through turns rather than nursing them. Had some incredible surfs in 3-5ft beach break. Holds really well in punchier low tide waves and I've had enough volume to carve up the faces when it's been fuller-tide. Only time I haven't loved it is when it's been barely 2ft. Thought I'd see how it went and it was ok, but would have had more fun on my Seaglass Albacore finless. Didn't buy it as a proper groveller and it's not. Been riding it as a thruster with Futures AM1 Blackstix. Haven't tried it as a quad.

Jon - / 19Yrs / 170 cm / 60kg / Intermediate - Intermediate V2 Rocket 5' 7" x 19 3/8" x 2 1/4" x 26.90L
Super fast, nimble board! Haven't even considered taking any other board out since this guarantees maximum fun in 1-5ft surf!

Leo - / 22Yrs / 181 cm / 86kg / 3 - Intermediate The Rocket 6' 2" x 20 1/2" x 2 5/8" x 37L
An excellent step down from my previous 6'8 short board plenty of foam and is so easy to turn. Creates speed effortlessly and has a great amount of float for a bigger guy (86kg). Will work in average small conditions to well overhead and clean, couldn't be happier Thanks guys!

Stephen - / 48Yrs / 178 cm / 80kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced Puddle Jumper 5' 8" x 21 1/2" x 2 5/8" x 36.9L
Good very small wave board. Drives down the line well, even on mush. Seems to prefer a flatter face to barrelling waves. Turns well. Wide tail, works well as a quad (extra speed), but benefits from the nubster to stop the tail drifting too much.

Greg - / 47Yrs / 181 cm / 95kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Puddle Jumper 6' 0" x 22 0" x 2 5/8" x 40.15L

Jake - / 30Yrs / 179 cm / 76kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Puddle Jumper 5' 5" x 20 3/4" x 2 7/16" x 31.45L
Board felt great right from the start. Goes just as they say it will, very easy to surf and seems to generate its own speed. I went for a couple of Litres higher volume than my normal board short board and it suits perfectly.

Great surfboard for those smaller days, it feels very lively and manoeuvrable, although I was surprised to find out it is not a groveler really, it paddles well but not great, it might be due to the addition of more rocker. You can't have it all! Great board overall.

Alden - / 25Yrs / 184 cm / 90kg / Intermediate - Intermediate V2 Grinder 6' 0" x 20 0" x 2 1/2" x 32.6L
Successfully making runs down the line and out of the barrel on fast pumping beach breaks, making sections I never made in the past. In my experience it's definitely less of a front foot board, which is how I usually ride. But found it forgiving on my first couple of sessions.
2015-11-18 14:23:45
Ashley - / 27Yrs / 175 cm / 75kg / Intermediate - Intermediate V3 Round It 6' 0" x 20 0" x 2 1/2" x 33.33L
This board is a good all rounder, from small beach breaks and up to 4 foot indo. Great for fast down the line waves.

Michael - / 39Yrs / 180 cm / 75kg / Intermediate - Intermediate V3 Round It 6' 1" x 20 1/4" x 2 9/16" x 35L
This board is my fav board at the moment! From small fat waves to nice hollow barrels this board is awesome! Went the 6'1" for the 35l of volume for some extra paddle power and to get on the wave earlier in crowds. My wave count is now up therefore my surfing is improving. Super stoked and can't wait to take this board to Indo!
2016-10-06 11:47:28
Shane - / 36Yrs / 176 cm / 72kg / Intermediate - Intermediate Round Nose Fish 6' 2" x 20 1/2" x 2 5/8" x 38.4L
I love this board. There is enough volume for me to catch almost any wave and it is still very manueverable. I no longer have to wait around the dregs of the long-boarders that congregate at my local surf spot.
2016-11-01 10:07:39
Rodrigo - / 39Yrs / 176 cm / 84kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced The Round Up 6' 4" x 20.0" x 2 5/8" x 36L
Great step up board if you are looking at something that will resemble the boards you are used to for smaller waves, I have got a few shorter and wider boards, so the Round Up actually makes it easier for you to jump on your step up and feel comfortable straight away. The board itself goes fantastic, I ordered it as PU because I wanted the extra weight for bigger surf, I really feel that the board catches those long period swell / fast moving waves easier than everything else I've got, and once you are on the wave it feels solid and responsive. Great addition! I am taking it to the Mentaways soon.

Brett - / 31Yrs / 188 cm / 96kg / Intermediate - Intermediate The Round Up 6' 8" x 20 1/2" x 2 3/4" x 40.65L

jerome - / 33Yrs / 180 cm / 83kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced Quiver Killer 5' 10" x 19 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 30.50L
Surfed on the Gold Coast point & beachies in small to pumping conditions. Even managed to contest long boards at Arrawara for a week-end. Take-off easy in weaker conditions and hold in fast hollow waves... this board does it all!
2016-04-05 15:46:26
DAVID - / 60Yrs / 185 cm / 84kg / Intermediate / Advanced - Intermediate / Advanced Quiver Killer 6' 2" x 20 3/4" x 2 5/8" x 37L
The Lost Quiver Killer is just a great board for me with extra volume but it doesn't compromise speed and maneuverability with enough rocker in the nose for steep drops. Goes well on small and big days and as I'm now past 60 its perfect for every sort of session and loads of paddle power for older tired arms!!

Ashley - / 26Yrs / 181 cm / 75kg / 4 - Intermediate / Advanced V3 Rocket 6' 2" x 20 1/2" x 2 5/8"~37.86L
Best board I've ridden, great in the tube and on smaller fat waves as a quad. Once it gets over head I would ride as thruster. It's supper fast with heaps of volume which makes it very forgiving!

Josh - / 29Yrs / 173 cm / 74kg / 4 - Intermediate / Advanced V3 Rocket 5' 8" x 19 1/2" x 2 5/16" x 29.06L
This board flies down the line set up as a quad on chest high and a little above waves, i've not had to many chances to use it in above head high as a thruster but love having the option to switch it up when I want to with the FCS 2 plugs. It's a great summer board in Sydney so far!

Lee - / 40Yrs / 190 cm / 90kg / 4 - Intermediate / Advanced V3 Rocket 6' 0" x 20 1/4" x 2 9/16" x 35.24L
I have ridden this board exclusively for 3 months trying to get my head around what it is doing and to be honest can't figure it out! Being a new board and shape to the Aust market I read allot of reviews that raved how good it is etc; I beg to differ I find the board lacks manoeuvrability and feel under foot. I have tried multiple fin combinations to try and get it to agree with my style of surfing but nothing has worked. I think allot can be said for home grown talent and shapers. The American Market is allot different to the Aust hence the boards are accordingly. I ordered the board with strong glassing and the deck hasn't got a flat spot on it. I am currently trying to sell the board as it doesn't work! Well for me anyway. Give me a DMS any day!!!

this board carries speed over flat sections and paddles well above its weight. More responsive than my dumpster of the same size

Performs amazing. I'm used to riding standard thrusters but the shorter/wider model is incredible. Really fast in smaller stuff and real manoeuvrable in bigger surf. I'm verging on a one board quiver. I bought the 5'8" which is perfect for me. Although I'm probably still a bit heavy to duck dive it as well as I would like to.

I am very happy with this board. Seems to perform well in conditions 2-5ft both clean and messy. I love it.

Awesome board that perfectly suits my style of surfing. Builds speed easily and has incredible release even as a quad. Highly recommended.

Board is great! Cassic 5 fin setup. Ride as thruster below 4ft for pivot and as quad 4ft & above for more hold. FCS2 fin setup makes swapping easy. Its actually EPS carbon and handles chop/wind better than my old Webber SLX.

Sick board in knee to shoulder high waves as a quad. Heaps of paddle power extra volume doesnt make the board clunky tho. Cant wait to get it into some decent waves!

Good fun board for smaller days but can handle the medium size stuff with no problems at all. A lot more maneuvreable than I would have thought.

Performs as states in model description online, consistent, fast, fluid and plenty of drive. I have surfed it in 1ft-4ft in the last month, pretty happy. One of the rare boards that i've ridden and wouldnt change anything

ordered a sub driver as a step down from a driver to surf in 1-2 ft surf, good idea in theory but it's really ...lost. no real spark in it, no pop, not really happy with it altogether. have boards with identical dimensions that are way better. not happy with finish on and around fin plugs either.
