The Misfit is a performance/comp board designed to be ridden a little bit shorter that works well in any conditions knee to head high.
The design has a little more area overall relative to the Redline, R1, or Bender with an emphasis on a slightly fuller front end and a wider tail block. The wider squash tail maintains extra area aft and the outline is a little straighter through the fin area, adding drive through turns.
The rocker features a relaxed entry with a fair bit of exit curve that is evenly distributed in the back half.
Bottom is a light single concave.
With the fuller outline and extra area, the board generates plenty of lift. Because of the extra back half centerline curve, there is already plenty of arc in the rail to compliment the drivier outline
A deck that is a little more domed than average and adds some extra volume while allowing the rail line to have a lean, even flow, nose to tail.
All these elements work together to make a board with a bit of skate, launch, and still carves.

Check out this recently released clip from Elsegood Productions featuring Rusty team rider Jay Davies going mental around his home area of Western Australia. Jay is a giant large human who surfs with amazing effortless style and the power of a nuclear submarine.
These clips show off Jay's technical abilities in less then ideal surfing conditions, not to mention there are a couple of moves in the edit which will have you screaming at the screen and frothing, and wondering how he manages to have such cat like balance abilities.
Follow Jay on instagram @jay_davies and be sure to visit Elsegood productions to watch the other flicks of Jay tearing it up around the world!

The ISA World Juniors Surfing Championship has been under way this past week in Nicaragua and Rusty team rider Kevin Schulz has been slugging it out and posting up scores against some of the top junior surfers on the planet.

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.
Check out the fresh clips from Rusty team rider Jacob Szekely ripping around his local neighborhood breaks in La Jolla California, rightfully entitled Home Sessions, shot and edited by Brian Baucum.
Jake recently took home the NSSA west coast explorer championships in Huntington Beach, and his natural talent both above and below the lip shows is these clips. Hopefully this gets you mind surfing or out in the water!

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
The contest has ended, congrats to Rusty team rider Josh Kerr for pushing through the contest to make the quarter finals before getting edged out by CJ Hobgood. Kelly Slater takes another one, next stop is the Oakley Pro in Bali Jun 18th - 19th.
The Volcom Fiji Pro has begun on the island of Tavarua! Click on the banner to visit the live streaming site and be sure to root for Josh Kerr surfing in heat #9 of the first round this afternoon!
Kerrzy is always a standout and one of the most exciting surfers on the tour to watch at this contest, and you better be sure he'll be putting on a show and getting as deep as he can. He is up against a slew of seasoned pro's who have spent just as much time as Kerr has charging this magical surf spot in fiji, but look for him to put up a good fight to post scores and push through heats!
