Best tide Type: Rides well on any wave, but feels best in mid-range.

To stand on Lost Sub Buggy surfboard, you need special training. Beginners shouldn’t ride these types of surfboards straight away, but here’s what you need to know and be able to do first.

Surfing was the first type of activity that people began to use specifically for entertainment, not for survival.

Today, to learn this fascinating extreme activity, you only need a tide and a desire to learn how to ride.

Obviously, it’ll be easier and faster for a person in good physical shape to succeed in riding the waves. But in any case, no matter what level of sports training is, it is advisable to undergo special training before surfing and in general to learn more about the sport.


The best place to start is with a surf school.

Even if there are friends or acquaintances who are involved in this sport, the teacher’s help will be needed, if only because many newcomers have gone through him. That is, he’ll approach teaching individually, the program in specialized schools is drawn up taking into account various details.

Instructors have a lot of experience, therefore they’ll immediately show mistakes, it’ll be easier to learn how to operate the Lost surfboard than with independent training.

The school also provides security, which is very important. Plus, learning from professionals, you won’t be able to slip away from classes, and the number of classes will soon turn into quality.

Classes are considered ideal both in a group and individually – a combination is important.

Group lessons show the success of others and want to repeat them, their mistakes are also visible, there is an opportunity to see them and no longer step on their own “rake”.

On an individual basis, their own problems are considered and solved as soon as possible with great efficiency.

Each person’s training can last for a different time, it depends on the level of sports training, learning ability, courage. On average, they are limited to 10-20 lessons.

It is best and most effective to combine schooling with self-study. In practice, it is worth repeating what you learned in school, reinforcing the actions so that they are accurately imprinted in the brain.

You can skip school and consult with a friend who is familiar with surfing, or just watch video tutorials, read recommendations.

In this case, the training may be somewhat delayed and mistakes are possible, but if there is no opportunity to study with an instructor, these are the most affordable options.

It is imperative to learn safety precautions in both normal and dangerous conditions, learn all possible mistakes and try to avoid them.

For the basic level, skills such as:

  • surfing along the tide on a large or medium Lost longboard;
  • the ability to perform simple turns;
  • know as many surfable areas (surf spots) as possible

Having learned the base, you can independently continue to train and improve your skills, learn other, more complex, surfing details.

surfing bali

When choosing a place to study, you should pay attention to Bali. Few can allow surfing on the islands, but it’s worth it.

Any other place where there are stable tides is also suitable, so that you can train on almost any convenient day at any time, and not wait for the right weather.

Well, if the tides are not monotonous, then it’ll be easy to choose a tide for yourself according to your skills.

Water and air should be pleasant to the body in terms of temperature, otherwise classes may not bring pleasure.


After the base has been studied, it is worth making a plan for which elements you need to learn.

The plan should be as detailed as possible, you cannot deviate from it, study and train everything in order. Just getting on the tide and surfing is not an option, it’s a path of slow progress.

If you cannot master the planned on your own, you should ask a professional for help – then everything will definitely work out.

At the initial stages of surfing as such, most likely, it’ll not work, the beginner will simply catch the tides and roll off them.

Learning to surf is much easier with the guidance of an experienced surfer.

Choose your first surfboard

The larger the Sub Lost surfboard, the more waves you can catch.

It is also very important that you can surf along the tide , and not just move off it. Because the more practice on a long LostΒ  Sub Buggy surfboard, the better.

When it turns out, among other surfers, to catch about 15 tides in a couple of hours and from half of them it is not easy to move out, but to go along them, to make several following turns, then you can think about getting a shortboard.

When choosing your first Lost shortboard, you need to pay attention to the dimensions. It should be as comfortable and large as possible, that is, its nose should be thick and wide, you can not pay attention to the stern.

There are 3 or 4 fins, this does not play a decisive role.

When choosing such a sub short surfboard, it is possible to feel all the advantages, but at the same time it’ll be possible to catch waves, turn and roll along them, and not just slide.

first surfboard

If you buy a Lost surfboard that is too small, surfing will practically not work, you’ll only have to slide down the waves or not catch up with the tides.

After mastering the first Lost Sub Buggy shortboard, you can go to a smaller Sub Buggy surfboard and gradually reduce its size.

Here, too, it is advisable to start with classes with an instructor.

If in the case of a long Sub Buggy surfboard it was necessary to take mostly gentle waves, since they are less dangerous and easier to surf on them, now you’ll have to master steep waves, since you’ll not even be able to row a gentle wave.

The way of catching the tides will also change, and with it the location. You won’t be able to pierce the waves on a shortboard, unlike a long Lost Sub Buggy surfboard, but turns will come out much easier.

Best shortboards


If you’ve outgrown your chalkboards or are just thinking about purchasing a Lost Sub Buggy shortboard, here are four 5’6 pieces.

Firewire rocket

The V2 Rocket has a smaller aft rocker with less deflection in the fin and faster rail lines. The padded wing helps with flanging and provides increased control in the rolls.

The nose rocker is more elevated in the first 30 centimeters of the nose, and the deflection is moved forward.

Sub surfboard will make it easier for mid-level surfers to ride on less usable tides, having high speed without the obvious kicktail feel of skateboards.

Sharp eye disco

Sharp eye disco shortboard

Most popular design in the Sharp Eye line.

The Disco is designed for low to medium waves and has a high performance to ride like a normal shortboard.

The bottom is distinguished by the most curved rocker of any similar Buggy surfboard, and the outline is wider than that of a glider.

Get ready for high speed and tight turns on small but fun waves.

Choose a Lost Sub Buggy board that is 8-10 centimeters shorter than your usual shortboard.

Pyzel PyzAlien

Pyzel Pyzalien PU Surfboard

One of the best selling brand designs. This Sub Buggy surfboard may well serve as a replacement for any high performing shortboard.

A single channel in the bottom extends from the bow under the forefoot, and then gently branches into a double deflection and a “V” in the last 15 cm section aft. This combination provides high acceleration on wave entry and excellent handling.

The contours are composed of a fairly full bow and wide stern to maintain very high speed with increased control, making it easy to transition from rail to rail at high speed.

A flat deck and full rails increase the volume of the Buggy board, which should be considered when placing an order.

It is recommended to choose Sub surfboards 3-4 millimeters thinner, 7-10 centimeters shorter and 5-12 millimeters narrower than the usual shortboard. Riding pleasure is guaranteed.

Channel Islands New Flyer

Surfboard Channel Island New Flyer

The specific characteristics of each Lost Sub Buggy board are determined by targeted variations in the application of the TL Pro Carbon technology.

This advanced, hand-tuned design allows you to squeeze the best out of your session and has higher durability than a typical polyurethane sub surfboard.

Al Merrick created Flyer in 1999, revolutionizing the design of high-performance low-wave surfboards.

For 2014, Channel Islands upgraded the Flyer to a shorter and wider Buggy surfboard. The new architecture allows you to maintain the same volume with shorter rails.

The mistake-forgiving double rocker remained a part of the structure, to which a spiral β€œV” was added in front of the fin and to the stern, which simplifies the changeover.

Merrick’s signature hip (a slight bulge above the front fin) serves as a fulcrum when taking tight turns.

shortboard surfing

In surfing, the transition from a long board to a short Lost Sub Buggy board is usually very long and difficult. There is no problem to buy yourself a small board, but you will not be able to use its potential with an initial level of riding.

Anyone can ride in an ugly stance on foam, and this is what beginners usually look like when they take a short board.

It takes a long time before the level of stamina and balance becomes necessary.

The shortboard loves big and sharp waves, but a beginner most likely still cannot cope with such waves and the level of balance does not provide an opportunity to accelerate himself to the required speed.

Plus, it can always happen that a lichen rupture occurs, or breaks the board, not having good endurance to be able to swim ashore, trouble can happen and it is good if there are people nearby who will be able to help swim.

Large waves always give a fast current, due to the movement of large masses of water, this current is created, for a person without a board it can be an insurmountable factor.

Only long serious workouts will give the necessary balance and endurance so that you can go into big waves and start from it without fear, showing your mastery of the board and squeezing out of it everything it is capable of.

Ideally, an athlete who wants to reach a serious level needs to give up alcohol and smoking, this strongly poisons the body, which lowers progress and overall tone.

It is advisable to have a lot of time for sleep so that the body has time to recover. And of course, the food that the surfer eats will also affect the physical condition, and it, in turn, will give good results in surfing and visible progress, this will give the necessary positive attitude to continue training.
