New for 2016, the Heckler is a Fish with some new ideas. We've utilized a "fishy" outline with a shallow dovetail and pronounced wing to produce a lightening fast small wave wonder. The proven Venturi bottom design that has been so well received on two of our other models. The Rooster and The Hustler, adds a new dimension for fishing and Fish lovers.

Got a 5'6" heckler 150-155lbs 5'-9". Only been surfing 6 months since moving to Costa Rica. Spent about 4 months on a 9 foot and 2 months on a 7 foot. I thought about getting a 6' or 5'10" but didn't want to be ready for a smaller board in another few months. I figured I would go small even if I had to struggle for a while trying to figure out how to surf on such a small board. Surfing on day one! Paddles surprisingly easier than I imagined for such a small board and when I pop up it takes off like a rocket! Extremely responsive. Felt a bit squirrely at first compared to my 7 foot but after the first few rides I felt pretty well in control. It was 4-5 foot and, after 10 days of glass, fairly choppy. I was getting tired of such nice conditions so I bought a new board. Magic! Cant wait to get it out on a clean day!
Just got my custom Heckler in XTR: 5'10'' x 21'' x 2.37''. I'm 5'9, 190lbs and surf mostly south shore, Oahu. This board is the by far the best small wave board I have ridden. It catches everything and can rip in small to med size waves. To put it in perspective I have a PU/Piranha and wanted to get something to replace it since its 13 years old. This was my go-to small/med wave work horse, its literally yellow and has about a dozen ding repairs, but I still love it. I also have a RNF, Pig2, and maybe not comparable a Flyer F. But this is by far the best small wave board of the bunch. The wide nose and volume up front makes it seem effortless when getting into waves you think you might just be a little bit to deep for. I've never ridden a venturi bottom but it seems to have just slide through the face of a wave. This board is amazing and where ever I look it seems to get me there without much effort. There is nothing like a magic board. It's very evident by the performance of this board that there is a lot of experience and engineering that was put in in this design. Thank Rusty for another small wave workhorse! Mahalo
Got a 5'6" a few months back and it's now my go to board. Use it in small mushy surf and works great and also in 6-8 ft surf in clean lined conditions, and the board catches and creates speed like nothing I've used before (the rest of the surfers were using 6'8 and bigger boards). It's an amazing board, use it as a twin and twin+trailer, super manoeuvrable anywhere on the wave.
Excellent board , very versatile ,good turn, very good in small nedium waves .
