Rusty's Sammy Orozco won the Belmar Junior Pro this weekend with Rusty teammate Mikey Ciaramella coming in 3rd. Sammy was riding his Rusty 5'6" WTF which he claimed was working amazing in the small surf. Congrats Sammy and Mikey!
Noa Deane has a killer attitude and surfs with all the uncoached raw style you could ever hope for. But, did you know his pops is Wayne Deane, legendary surfboard shaper? Here, a father with a not-so-dark past shows his son with a bright future how to feel out the volumes, rockers and concave. Then, Noa flows the board down the line at Snapper. Lineage!
Josh Kerr was just voted the 'Flight to the Flats' Champ! Thanks to Chippa Wilson for putting the video contest on. The Flight to the Flats competition was based around the rider's best air + maneuver combinations. The final was held in Bali after Kerrzy edged Mitch Coleburn. Kerr was up against tough competitors in Dylan Graves and Balaram Stack with Chippa adding his own air combo's off the record. Kerrzy's aerial talent set the bar and was chosen as the clear winner.

Congrats to Rusty team rider Josh Kerr for taking home the runner up position at the Reef Pro in El Salvador this past weekend! Kerrzy was on fire throughout the entire event, laying down some massive turns and airs in each heat to push all the way through to the finals, but in the end it was Brazilian Peterson Crisanto who ended up taking the title.
Kerr has been on a terror lately, racking up an immense amount of points and well placed finishes in both the WCT and other events. The next stop will be in Tahiti for the Billabong pro at Teahupoo taking place August 15-26 2013. Be sure to check out Josh Kerr's profile on rusty.com here, and root him on as he continues his push on the WCT tour!
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.
