Sub Driver

The Sub Driver is something Kolohe Andino specifically asked for this spring. Most his small or mushy wave surfing had been on 5’10 x 18.88 x 2.25 Sub Scorchers. In solid or curvy, more powerful waves he has been riding his 6’0 x 18.25 x 2.25 squash tail Drivers. He asked for to make him something in between his “Driver with a Sub Scorcher outline”. Using the AKU shaping program I simply imported the Sub Scorcher’s outline onto the Driver rocker, bottom, foil and rails. We then sized it just between the Sub Scorcher and his Driver at 5’11 x 18.75 x 2.25. The result is a board he’s been riding in all sorts of waves from knee high San Clemente beach breaks to fun sized Indo. We came up with a cool new logo and rushed this model into the US stores for summer 2011. More nose rocker and less tail rocker (with no vee) than the Sub Scorcher. This is a great all around small to mid sized wave board for both average and exceptional surfers. Early response has been fantastic. Mick Fanning rode one of Kolohe’s 5’11 Sub Driver trade-ins into the quarter-finals (he lost on a count back) of the Hurley Pro at Trestles this year.
