The T-Dwart is a narrower thinner version of the original Dwart, coupling a performance rail and slightly more rocker. In addition, the double wing round tail produces a quicker more agile surfboard. The board works perfect in the smaller and more challenging conditions, and is easy to whip around. Most ride the T-Dwart 3-6 inches shorter then their standard shortboard.
Tons of local surfers and Rusty Surfboards enthusiasts flocked to the shores of Ocean Beach on Saturday morning to attend the Rusty Surfboards Demo presented by Pride Surf and Skate. Several Rusty tents, along with a FCS tent to try various fins, were set up in front of Avalanche Jetty and, although the waves were not super clean, there were some fun sized corners coming through- making it a great day to demo Rusty Surfboard models in average California surf. Have a look at some event pics below...

Let me introduce you to my little friend. This is my Rusty 5'4" Dwart. It's full dimensions are 5'4" x 19.85 x 2.05. It has four fins, and it likes to fly.
"I didn't always like quads. I thought they were fast, but for some reason I didn't like the way they felt when hitting lip. I used to think a solid off the top on a quad didn't feel like it had the same satisfying *smack* that I would get from a thruster. Now that i've gotten used to the feeling of the quad, the speed and looseness has more than made up for anything I used to think was lacking. It's a perfect small wave board, but lately I've been riding it in hollow waves too. The short little board can take off so late and just drop straight into the tube."

The U.S. Championships were held at Huntington Beach and the finals took place on Saturday in clean and peaky shoulder to head high surf south of the Pier. The fun and rippable waves were a pleasant surprise for a Huntington surf contest, however, next year's US Championships will be held at Trestles (SIMA just obtained the permit!). Rusty Surfboards was on site with a fully stocked quiver of demo boards...Toads, Dwarts, Hustlers, Piranhas, Redlines, you name it. Everyone who took out a board had a hard time returning them, "This thing goes insane!" announced one content Dwart rider. Keep your eyes on RUSTY.COM to find out about the next surfboard demo near you!
