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.
Just in case you stopped frothing for a second on all the unbelievable barrels ridden at Kirra this past couple of weeks TransWorld Surf just posted an edit from themadhueys.com featuring an all star line up including Rusty team rider Josh Kerr getting shacked off their heads repeatedly!
Check out the keg that Kerrzy gets at the end of the edit, if that doesn't make you want to grab you board and get on a plane to Australia to get barreled nothing else will!
Check out the feature on Transworld Surf with Rusty team rider Josh Kerr showing and explaining the step by step moves to stomping Alley Oops. Kerrzy is an air master and there are few professional surfers who can pull these off as smooth and gracefully as he does. Check out the photos on transworldsurf.com, then get in the water and keep hucking until you get it!

This post weekend Transworld Surf Magazine and SurfRide Board shop put on Camp Shred, the world's largest surf demo at the San Elijo campgrounds in Cardiff Ca. The event went off with tons of people and families joining in to test out the latest in surfboards, wetsuits, fins, skateboards and more!
The event helps bring people to the California state park and help spread awareness and raise funds for the CA state park program. Rusty was on hand to stoke out the crowds of surfers wanting to try the latest shapes and designs. We spent the weekend hooking up our test pilots with custom made hats, stickers, and posters. A little sun burnt but it was awesome to see how many people made it out to support and test out all the surf gear.
Come join Rusty and a ton of your other favorite Surf brands at CAMP SHRED for 2 days of the world's largest Surf demo presented by Transworld Surf Magazine and Surf Ride Sports! The event will be taking place this coming Saturday March 16th and 17th at the San Elijo Campgrounds in Cardiff by the Sea to help raise money and support the California state parks.
Rusty will be posted up all weekend at CAMP SHRED with our newest and greatest surfboard shapes for everyone who makes it down to test out and demo on the beach. We will also have a ton of giveaways, contests, and games going on all weekend so come down, hang out, and support your state parks while having some fun!
The campground will have Music, Movies, Food Trucks, a Beer garden, and tons of giveaways and products for you to try out both Saturday and Sunday.
Here’s what our friends at Transworld did while down at the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast asking our very own Josh Kerr what he has to say about being called a seppo by his mates and what it’s gonna take to beat Kelly Slater.
We teamed up with the band Le Blorr for our musical inspiration and decided to embark on a serene little collaboration of their music video Seven Sister and our dudes getting super steezy on their single fins down in Costa Rica. The boys didn’t just get groovy and cruisey on the one, though, they went absolutely nuclear on them. Our team pushed the boundaries of alternative board riding and took one fin where it has never before seemed possible. Fully rotated airs, inverts, blowing the back out of the lip, getting deeper in the tube, and just slashing harder than GnR on these things.
You’re going to fall in love…our movement is unique, as what’s old is now new again. However, our old is newer. The Single Life is about to take over your body and your soul.

I think he wants a new Rusty sled... Sounds like the Bali Single Fin has been very lusted after by our dear friend Chris Cote. Found this on Mr Rusty Preisendorfer's FaceBook wall... We feel you dudeman. H A P P Y | B ! R T H D A Y
