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.
