The Billabong Rio Pro kicks off this Wednesday May 8th at Barra Da Tuuca in Rio De Janeiro Brazil. The top surfers on the planet will be taking to the lineup to battle it out for points and the first place spot, while thousands of spectators take to the beach to root for their favorite pro!
Rusty team riders Josh Kerr and Willian Cardoso have been down in Rio for the past couple of weeks prepping and training for the contest. Be sure to watch live and root Kerrzy and Willian on as they take on the rest of the CT and show off their competitive surfing skills.
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
