Rusty and Rusty Surfboards teamrider, Jake Halstead, have been working together over the last 6 months to come up with a performance/comp board designed to be ridden a little bit shorter that works well in any conditions knee to head high.
The design has a little more area overall relative to the Redline, R1, or Bender with an emphasis on a slightly fuller front end and a wider tail block. The wider squash tail maintains extra area aft and the outline is a little straighter through the fin area, adding drive through turns.
The rocker features a relaxed entry with a fair bit of exit curve that is evenly distributed in the back half. Bottom is a light single concave.
With the fuller outline and extra area, the board generates plenty of lift. Because of the extra back half centerline curve, there is already plenty of arc in the rail to compliment the drivier outline. It has a deck that is a little more domed than average and adds some extra volume while allowing the rail line to have a lean, even flow, nose to tail.
All these elements work together to make a board with a bit of skate, launch, and still carves.
