Kevin hails from San Clemente Ca where he would be graduating this week with his class, but elected to follow his dreams and join the US surf team for the contest to try and help secure a victory with the rest of the team. Kevin made it through the first 2 rounds of qualifying heats before getting edged out in round 3. He pushed through his rep heat taking first place with a 12.67, and is up in heat #3 the rep 5 heat against fellow American Parker Coffin, Elliot Ivarra from France, and Hiroto Arai from Japan.
The Slackerr is part of the Kerrection series from Rusty. Josh Kerr was looking for a board between a performance shortboard (Jokerr), and a groveler (Dozer). A shortboard with comp attributes but a little bit of grovel friendly personality… something for everyday surf with easy transition back to his comp boards.
Josh (155lbs) rides the 5’8”, Check out the size chart below to see what dims you should be riding to get the most out of your Slackerr

Check out this short edit of Rusty central California team rider and all around shredder Clay Johnson. Clay is a man on the move constantly scouring up and down the central coast in search of wedgy beach break drainers and slabbing rock dodging drops! This was from one short session in Big Sur.
Check out the latest featured surfboard model, the Neil from Rusty. This stout performance Shortboard is designed for those average days of surf from knee high to head high.
It has a moderately full template with a wider nose and added volume for the ease of paddling. The Neil’s bottom contour has a deep single concave with a subtle vee of the tail that generates drive and speed quickly. The shallow angular Diamond tail gives the Neil its distinct look.
The Diamond tail shortens the rail length which makes your board feel a little smaller, easier to turn and a whole lot more alive in sloppy average conditions.
Bottom: Deep Single Concave
Fins: Thruster / upgrade to Five-fin is optional
