Happy Shovel

(4 reviews) Write a Review

One of the newest edition to the Rusty quiver, the Happy Shovel will command the lineup. Ideal for the knee to shoulder -high day, but its limits are yet to be determined. Designed with high surface area and the volume that goes with that, it creates a board that paddles and planes with ease. Combine the double-barrel concave and shortboard rails and it allows you to explore new lines and traverse flat sections easily. We designed it with the five fin setup for even more versatility. Our team riders across the globe have been giving the Happy Shovel two thumbs up… a fun board to surf when you want to change things up.

  • Oh Happy Days

    I ordered this board sight unseen except a for video reviews. I chose to go with my usual volume of 31.5L, which put me on a 5-8. It handles all my central California point break needs up to head high. Same purpose as a fish or simmons but with short board style drive from tail. As reviews say, the thickness foils out nicely towards edges of rails, tail and nose. Board does not feel tippy, extra volume is distributed down center line using a slightly domed deck. It has a wide profile but does not feel overly thick or bloated. I can surf less than perfect waves with this lively little everyday board. It responds well in the pocket. I would recommend this board to someone who wants a high functioning hybrid and alternative to a performance short board.

    This board planes so nicely and has great volume for its size, this means there is no problem catching any wave and it is still very manoeuvrable.

    Picked up the 5'5. Lots of volume for its size, and gets into waves with little effort. I've been surfing this board in overhead waves and haven't felt under gunned yet.
