The Panda is a HPSB designed for a heavier surfer. Good amount of rocker combined with a expressive single concave plus a kick in the last 3 inches of the tail; All that combined enable you to go vertical in tight arcs. The board has a curvy outline, a pronounced bump and a not so wide squash. The rails are tapered to sink in the water for powerful turns, keeping the thickness at the center with an accentuated dome deck. For waves waist high to double overhead.

I have been surfing for over fifty years, so I'm a little slow on the jump up these days, and I'm not going to win any paddle battles. I weigh 175. The 6'4" panda fits all my needs. It is extremely responsive and an easy paddle.
I´m a 160 lb, 5´10, 45 years old,good shape, once a week warrior using 5/4 hoodie,boots,gloves. Riding Rockaway waves(NYC) (mostly 4ft close out vertical to cylindrical walls) I am not heavy weight but really needed something that floats like my favorite summer fish (5'6, 33 lts) but moves and go vertical like my best short board(5'10, 27 lts). I couldn't find anything like that until I came across the RUSTY PANDA!!! Its so lively, so nervous, but at same time is so stable and user friendly. I love this board ( I bought the 5'10) Now I can go very fast and with a vertical approach but no paddle sacrifice at all.
Nigel shaped me a Panda as my everyday shortboard for Croyde, UK. It handles everything from waist to double overhead. It goes in onshore mush and hollow clean conditions. Its really fast down the line and manoeuvrable. I'm a big guy, 97kg and the 6,2 floats me great. The extra volume really helps me in the UK winter when I am wearing a 6/5/4, boots, gloves and hood. Probably one of the best shortboards I have owned. Read the reviews and then buy one. You wont be disappointed. Thanks Rusty and NS.
I got Aido to sort me this board down under. As soon as conditions are a little ruffly or not top to bottom, I get the panda.
The reviews don't lie. Get one.
