Matt "Mayhem" Biolos is of course, the man who stands behind the surfboard designs that you get to choose from when buying a ...Lost surfboard. Firewire and Matt have been collaborating to bring you great shapes and designs in the latest technology and materials.
The Mini Driver started with the original Driver. The initial adjustments incorporated a fast, low nose rocker with a forward placed outline, both of which added drive. After adding a rounded tail for control, but with additional width at 12" up from the tail, the Mini Driver emerged.
The clean and elliptical outline moved freely on the face and inside the tube, which is true to Kolohe's challenge when we started on the design. We were soon surprised by how well it performed in smaller everyday surf. The Mini Driver has quickly been recognized as one of the most versatile designs we’ve ever done.
FUTURE SHAPES TECHNOLOGY
FST relies primarily on the PARABOLIC Balsa Rail to control flex while the high density aerospace composite vacuumed to both top and bottom decks provides significant impact strength, and is stronger than the traditional PU surfboard. Please note our boards are definitely not indestructible and if slammed by a thick lip, or if you land incorrectly in the flats after doing an aerial, it is possible to break them.
The Parabolic Balsa Rail features 12mm balsa built from 3 x 4mm strips, which as mentioned not only control flex and add strength, but also act as a buffer against rail dings. Furthermore, the long-term flex memory supplied by the balsa rails ensures boards maintain their lively feel for longer.
With a retail price point slightly above premium polyurethane surfboards, FST offers an extremely high performance, durable surfboard.
