Del Mar:
This is Rusty Del Mar’s 25th anniversary. We are the original Rusty store. Rusty Del Mar is the hub of surfing in Del Mar. You have groms watching the latest surf movie in their wetsuits, tourists renting boards, and locals checking out the newest shapes. The store opened in 1987 at about 500 Square feet and has grown to over 2000 now. Our staff is always eager to tell you about their morning surf session and the new Rusty Shape they are riding.

La Jolla:
Rusty Boardhouse (RBH) opened its doors in 1992. Rusty Preisendorfer surf industry legend and Angie Presiendorfer marketing and retail guru started RBH with the same mission in mind that stands today "It's all about surfing". Having grown up and surfed in La Jolla his whole life Rusty opened RBH to create a local presence. As our name states we are a Boardhouse and our goal is to supply the surfer with all of his/her surfing needs. We take pride in our inventory of surfboards,surf accessories, hard goods, footwear and men's and women's apparel.

RBH Team Challenge: Charlie Sheens Winning

This past weekend the Rusty Boardhouse Team Challenge went down in fun, shoulder high surf on the North side of Scripps Pier. There was a great turn out of local talent that made for a really exciting and close event. The contest had a unique structure... four man teams where chosen at random in the morning, consisting of two groms and two adults. The event was tag team style and points were tallied for a winning team. At the end of the day the winning team was The Charlie Sheens, consisting of Jacob Szekely, Bryan Guter, Miles Toner, Jay Christenson. Congrats, each team member won a shaped blank from Rusty Surfboards...
