The new Uber Driver Lightspeed EPS is a great everyday surfboard. Matt Biolos designed this design to further blend the barriers between hybrids and his "Pro-Formance" surfboards.
The Uber Driver Lightspeed EPS outline and rocker/concaves are from the back half of the high performance Driver's currently ridden in smaller waves on tour by his team riders Kolohe Andino and Griffin Colapinto.
It is then blended to a lower, wider, faster, more forgiving and playful nose. The tail features a low centreline rocker with a curvy rail line rocker under the rear foot, that transitions from a generous single/double concave through the front fins, to a noticeable vee behind the rear fin and out the tail.
The nose rocker and forward outline was imported from the Rocket series outlines and allows this board to be ridden shorter, with more speed out the gate and more drive and stability for everyday surfers. The outline and rocker are blended in a way that enables the board to still be surfed like a modern shortboard. It just feels like you’e cheating a little.
The Uber-Driver Lightspeed EPS is best described as a high performance everyday shortboard.Perfect as a Sydney all-rounder.
