Lost Baby Buggy surfboard Carbon Wrap 5ft 8 FCS II - White
The patented carbon wrap technology is designed to increase drive and allow positive tail flex providing a lively, next level performance based board that will propel your surfing into the next level. It adds speed to the Baby Buggy without siffening up the performance.
The Carbon Wrap is a performance driven glassing technology that uses a strategically placed carbon and epoxy glassing construction to finish the board. Designed to reduce the weight of the surfboard whilst maintaining strength and the optimum flex. Unlike many carbon epoxy glassing hybrids the Carbon Wrap is designed to prevent stiffness in the flex, in particular the flex through the tail. The patented Carbon Wrap construction eliminates a standard wooden stringer and alters all traditional flex principles. Flaring the carbon out towards the rail utilizes the contortional twist creating optimum flex and drive. It is the unique method of wrapping these carbon bands from the bottom of the board, and around the rail onto the deck that provides the unique load and release.
After more than 18 years of non-stop surfing at the highest level on the World Tour, it’s more than reasonable that Taj Burrow should want to enjoy himself a little. With the impending birth of his first kid and knowing he would be passing on a couple events to be home for the birth, Taj requested "something short ‘n fun, but still a (normal) board. Nothing too fishy. Right about, or just over, my typical volume, but just squished down and playful".
Matt started with Taj's 5ft 9 x 18.25 x 2.25 24.50 litre (his personal dims) BeachBuggy, and re-modelled it at 5ft 6 x 18.63 x 2.25. The rails and foil were filled in until the board sat at 25 litres dead, the entire rocker was relaxed, so the new bottom curve nestled perfectly within the curve of the original 5ft 9. The hope was that Taj would still be able to draw his same trademark lines in spite of the much shorter rail line. The prototype was despatched to Tahiti and after his unfortunate exit from the Teahupoo event, Matt received the best kind of text he could of hoped for: "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 subtle tweaks to rails and tail thickness, Matt shaped a couple more, and decided on a fitting name. Like every new father, there’s impending daddy duties and Mr. Burrow needed a new ride….The Baby Buggy was born!

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.
