All round performance surfing the Lost Beach Buggy is perfect for the intermediate to advanced surfer looking for an everyday performance shortboard. It's been designed to handle a range of conditions from weak small waves to more quality steep waves. This Beach Buggy has a more relaxed rocker than the Whiplash for planing speed and the thickness in the deck is extended to the rails for extra speed and float in average conditions. Derived from the Whiplash-TB. The Beach Buggy 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. This is the board that TB used to win the Hurley Pro, at Lower Trestles, in 2013, but has been refined and updated slightly over the the last year. The 2015 version featuresTBs hyper extended tail rocker (for tight radius arcs off the back foot) but a significantly more relaxed entry and central 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 al 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. This board will be stocked in limited numbers and is recommended as a custom order model.
