Product Details

The Lost Baby Buggy surfboard by Matt Biolos.

The evolution of the Lost "Buggy" series continues with the introduction of the Baby Buggy, 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.

For the competent surfer in the UK and northern Europe the Baby Buggy would realistically make the ideal performance shortboard with a little added volume to counteract the additional weight of a wetsuit etc.

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.

5 out of 5 stars

Very well balanced
One rule I've had over 2 decades of surfing is, if there's a pro's name on a board avoid it, glad I bought this one though. Ordered a custom carbon wrap, 5 10 x 19.5 x 2.5 31.2l. Without being unkind there's nothing extraordinary about the Baby Buggy, everything seems just right. The width in the nose, middle and tail is right, the nose rocker is low with just enough flip and the tail rocker is probably at the high and of low (low medium?), plenty of foam in the rails means you get a great amount of glide but you can also turn it very easily when you want, it's just so responsive and easy to surf. Only had it in small waves so far but amazed how well it goes with the carbon wrap. I suspect it will be at its best from thigh to overhead surf with medium or upright fins. I'm pretty happy with it and can't wait for my next surf. But be warned if you want a custom job delivery could take a while, so give it plenty of time if you want one for a trip otherwise buy off the virtual rack. Great daily driver.
Very fast and responsive
It's a very lively, fast board to ride. It has a lot of squirt straight off the bat due to the rocker profile and foil distribution. The other thing is that this is incredibly responsive, it has a very loose feel and loves the pocket and feels very sharp on the rail! (deep single concave). Not quite as forgiving as other boards i've ridden in its category (i.e lost rocket), it is still essentially a high performance shortboard, just squished down. thumbs up :)
