The Mini Driver started with the original Driver. The initial adjustments incorporated a fast, low nose rocker with a forward placed outline, both of which added drive. After adding a rounded tail for control, but with additional width at 12" up from the tail, the Mini Driver emerged. The clean and elliptical outline moved freely on the face and inside the tube, which is true to Kolohe's challenge when we started on the design. We were soon surprised by how well it performed in smaller everyday surf. The Mini Driver has quickly been recognized as one of the most versatile designs we’ve ever done.
