The Blade

Warranty Information

The Blade is a direct descendant of the famous 1984. In 2014 Rusty Preisendorfer hooked up with Mark “Occy” Occhilupo and did a 100 board reissue of his famous signature “84” model. A year ago Rusty started getting asked to lean out the nose and lose the beak. In addition, he modernized the bottom slightly. The surfers who tried them freaked.

Since then Rusty has made them with 4 deep channels. He also decided to give a very modern bottom with a deep single to double concave a shot. Bottom line is that virtually anyone that has tried any of the different bottoms has been psyched and have also ordered them longer as well. The Blade works in a wide range of conditions. For now we are offering the Blade in a mellow, subtle single to double concave, that bottom with 4 deep channels, and a modern deep single concave.

  1. Blade (shhh don't let everyone know)

    Posted by on Jul 12th 2019

    Seriously one of the best boards I've ever ridden..been a frotha for 30 odd years, shed full of boards, this one is up there.

  2. Such a Score!

    Posted by on Jan 22nd 2019

    I got one of these mid summer and have nothing but great things to say about it. One of my all-time favorites to ride in just about anything from 2-6ft+ beachbreak or 4-8ft reefs thanks to easy paddling. The placement of channels are such a game changer, defiantly feel the water more when its traveling through the tail. The board works insanely good, hope they keep this model around.

  3. What a versatile small wave shape!!

    I've only been on this for a few days now, but already know that this will be a favorite when the waves are small going forward. Use this board at your local beachbreak with a more vertical/upright fin and you won't be disappointed. Be warned, the blade might become your favorite board in the rack...
