Couch Surfing in Hawaii with Hunter

San Diego stand out, Hunter Lysaught, spent the last month and a half house hopping and couch surfing on the North Shore. Hunter doesn't care where he lies his head, as long as he gets a few waves under his feet...

On the Road: Hunter Lysaught

Rusty Surfboards team rider, Hunter Lysaught, is pretty much living out of his board bag now-a-days. Good thing he knows what to pack at... with a 6'6" Traveler for camping in the tube, a custom 5'11" R-1 Shortboard with a thumb tail for when the waves are good- but not huge, and a 5'9" Jokerr for making the most out of groveling conditions, and a few pairs of boardies- Hunter is pretty set to tackle any situation that presents itself, whether it is competitions, free surfing, or just living. From Puerto, to England, to France, to Virginia... Hunter always has a one way ticket going somewhere to harness his skills. Free surfing on his 5'11":

Hunter Graduates College and Enrolls in the WQS

Congratulations to Rusty Surfboard team rider, Hunter Lysaught, who just finished his last college final yesterday!  When Hunter was asked what he plans on doing with his degree in Business Administration he replied, "Surf professionally".  Makes sense.  Hunter is a smart kid a he knew that he wanted to obtain his college degree so he can have that to fall back on and he has been the captain of the Point Loma Nazarene Surf Team for the duration of his college career,  but now that school is out of the way he can focus on putting all of his energy into battling it out on the WQS.  "I knew if I didn't go to school right away I could easily get sucked into never wanting to go back, but I figured it would be smarter to get my degree out of the way first.  I didn't really plan on competing when I graduated, but I have been doing really well in the collegiate series and the job market is pretty meager at the moment, so I don't really have a lot to lose." In a few short weeks he is off to Mazatlan to compete, followed by a string of travel and competitions.  We wish Hunter all the best in his endeavors...

Ripping Through College with Hunter Lysaught

The 2010-11 NSSA West Coast College Team season came to a close with event #4 on Monday, January 17 at D St in Encinitas.  The college competitors were greeted with super fast steep lefts and rights from a west/northwest swell.  The size ranged anywhere from 2-6 feet with some bigger sets coming through.  Conditions were clean and glassy all day with summer like weather.  Twenty college teams were on hand to enjoy the day...

Rusty Surfboards team rider, Hunter Lysaught, put on a very solid performance all day long and wound up on the winners podium with a second place!  Congrats to Hunter for ripping his way through college!

"This was our last regular season event before States and Nationals.  The Redline roundtail works insane!  One of the best boards I have... I keep it on ice and bring it out only for comps because it is lethal!"
