Lost Baby Buggy R-4C surfboard 6ft 1 FCS II - White
This R-4C incarnation of the original BB comes with a very pleasing rounded tail and the revolutionary radiating channels. Traditionally channels have been associated with down-the-line drive and improved hold in larger more powerful waves. This original parallel channel system whilst nice and "drivey" can cause a board to track and be reluctant to release when executing tighter turns. Matt has completely changed all the angles with the two outermost channels aligning themselves with the front fins and the inner ones being slightly more "toed in" a bit like the difference between front and rear quad fins. All four channels point directly at the nose and exit through the new rounded tail creating a more grippy feel with extra thrust through turns. This new setup has resulted in a board that not only thrives in glassy conditions but also manages to add spark in mushier surf.
The Lost Baby Buggy is Taj's now go-to board when the pressures of competing take a back seat and he's looking for a little more fun on average days at home.
With fatherhood looming large, World Tour veteran Taj Burrow approached Matt Biolos with a request for something short and fun, nothing "fishy", but a normal shortboard with roughly the same volume as his regular board, just squashed down and perfect for some fast fun.
Matt took Taj's 5ft 9 x 18.25 x 2.25 24.50 litre BeachBuggy, and re-modelled it at 5ft 6 x 18.63 x 2.25. A little more foam was added to the rails and foil leaving the board at 25 litres dead, the entire rocker was reduced and relaxed, so the new bottom curve could fit perfectly within the curve of Taj's original 5ft 9. Happy with the results, the prototype was despatched to Tahiti where Taj had suffered an early and unexpected exit from the Teahupoo comp. A few days later Matt received a text from Taj....the best kind of text, "that little board is ludicrous. I just surfed a soft little beachy here in Tahiti, and the thing went bananas".
Taj requested a couple of minor tweaks to rails and the tail thickness, Matt shaped a couple more, and christened their creation The Baby Buggy....a suitable name considering the imminent arrival of Taj's first born with his model girlfriend Rebecca Jobson.
The Baby Buggy is the perfect blend of domestication with some built in High Performance. Taj rides his 3" shorter and with a bit more volume than his regular shortboard, but an average surfer can be more generous and go with added volume and maybe only 1 - 2 inches shorter than his typical high performance shortboard.

The board does exatly what it say in the lost review. Thisboard will suit everybody who need a surfboard without compromising on the volume. I surf it in the south coast (where the waves have less power and more shoulders) this board get me through flat sections without pumping the hell out of my legs :)-
I am super stoked to go for the 5'11 instead of the 6'0.
Surf it with fcs2 tri large carver fins which works perfectly.
I recomend this board from 1ft up to 5ft.
