The Scorcher Surfboard from Lost was developed with Kolohe Andino for his all around contest needs. Kolohe had been riding the SD2 exclusively in contests for years. The low tail rocker and spiral Vee out the back gave a great combo of drive and maneuverability, but sometimes felt sticky in tight pockets.
In '08 they had been playing with The Stealth and Kolohe loved the quick, tight radius pocket surfing it allowed, but never felt confident using one in heats. His trademark carving style relied on the SD2s drive. In an effort to loosen up his surfing, and retain drive, Lost combined the two into the Scorcher.
Featuring the same low entry rocker, forward outline and rear rail line rocker of the Stealth, but the wide bump squash, and Vee out the back from the SD2. By lowering the Stealth's center line rocker and keeping the rail line the same they created a deep Vee out the tail (with more carving drive) hybrid of the SD2/Stealth.
