Driver x Mayhem Surfboards

The Driver has been designed to be a forgiving, progressive shortboard that is easy to hop on after riding a fish for the last 6 months. The Lost Driver has been designed to be an all-rounder to be surfed in just about anything, perfect for the one board surfer looking for a trusty and versatile performance shortboard. This board trims over fat sections and will still surf top to bottom with critical snaps in the pocket.

All round performance surfing the Lost Driver by Mayhem will light up in a range of conditions. The outline extends straight through the middle with an extra nose width and area in the rear hip for extra paddle and planing speed. There is an extra curve in front of the fins through the tail of the board and the widest point has been pushed back creating a turning point between both your feet for extra response and feel through the board.

The DRIVER has been a mainstay of our competitive, high performance line since its initial release in 2011. The accomplishments on, and accolades for, The DRIVER are too many to list. It was first designed in 2010, in response to Kolohe Andino and Julian Wilson’s requests for a “stiffer tail, that pushes back with more drive”. Julian netted some of his early career wins on board a Driver, and to this day, the Driver continues to be Kolohe’s go-to board for surf between 3’-6’. Carissa Moore rode Drivers predominately to both her second and third World Titles, and Tyler Wright rode Drivers exclusively during her 2016 World Title campaign. The Driver has morphed and evolved continually over the years, but the basic concept remains the same. Designed around a low tail rocker, balanced with a more generous nose rocker, it’s meant to be ridden “off the tail”. Because of its built in drive and the fact it easily projects under tail pressure, the Driver is an easy choice for average ability surfers who stand heavy and rely on the rear foot for drive.

The outline is “modern modest”:
Smooth, with no noticeable hip, or bump, and nothing extreme in terms of nose or tail width. It has mid volume rails, nose to tail, with a slight box in the tail. Along with the low tail rocker, the Driver features a modest concave from centre, increasing through the front fins and blending to flat off the tail. This concave adds lift, and also ensures plenty of rail rocker curve under the rear foot, which loosens up the relatively straight tail rocker, and allows tight radius turns when put on a rail. Overall, the Driver is a user friendly, tried and tested design, productive and proven around the world, by a wide variety of both top level and every day surfers.
