Rusty Surfboards is the brainchild of Rusty Preisendorfer.
Born in 1953, Rusty began designing surfboards by the age of sixteen. It was not long before he started shaping surfboards for major brands such as Canyon and Gordon and Smith. His profile grew as boards he had shaped became the choice of the champions earning ads and editorials in Surfer and Surfing magazine.
In 2008, Rusty Preisendorfer was declared Shaper of the year by the sports leading publication, Surfing Magazine. Apart from its footprint in North America, today, the company has spread its reach to Australia, Europe, Japan, Latin America and even parts of South America.
Rusty Surfboards come in different shapes and forms. Each item is tailored to either meet the needs of a particular class of surfers (for example, taller surfers), an experiment to gauge the markets inclination towards a particular shape.
Models offered by Rusty Surfboards include high performance surfboards such as the Rusty Predator, alternative surfboards like the new Rusty Dwart, and Specialty boards like the El Dorado.
