This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of Mark ‘Occy’ Occhilupo’s monumental breakout year on tour, when he showed the surfing world that a seventeen year old can rattle the best. His backside surfing at J-Bay and diverse mix of power and style earned him the nickname, ’Raging Bull’ and fans across the globe.
The whole time he rode a magic board, shaped by Rusty Preisendorfer – the model we know today as the ’84. Over the last month we’ve been promoting an exciting collaboration between Occy and Billabong to honor Rusty and the amazing board he made Occ. To celebrate the anniversary, we’ve made a limited number of exact replicas of the original board, complete with Retro Rusty and Billabong logos, which will be available for order on July, 1.
But for anyone wanting a second way to get their hands on this slice of history, Rusty Surfboards is offering fans the chance to win one of these limited edition 84′s. Entering is simple.
