I didn’t want to point out the traction pad just in case you hadn’t noticed it yet.

I like 2 piece pads because they’re harder to flub.

Asymmetrical traction pads will be all the rage in 2020, Racer's just ahead of the curve.

I just put a traction pad on my asym. That was an engineering feat on my part. It felt weird to offset the pad to one side.

Looks good Racer! That thing is thick!

As far as the logo goes, I was playing around on the Rusty website, and they would only let me use the gothic logo for the Blade. No other logo was available. Not sure if placement could be changed. Could just be something that Rusty demands with this particular board. shrug

That board trips me out. I feel like it will either be awesome or horrible. Not to be negative lol
I like how mayhem will let you have a no logo ...lost but keeps his mayhem tag near bottem.


Rumour is that Slater has a full-size tattoo of himself over his entire body

Yeah, I've been fondling it every couple of hours. It's either gonna be a banger or a dog. There's some chest high onshore waves today, I might take it out. Lots of waves coming over the next 2-10 days, so I'll have lots of feedback.

I made my board on the Rusty website and moved the logo down to the bottom. Screen shot it. I should have emailed that to XTR with my confirmation email. Oh well.

Also FYI: the Rusty shaper software isn't 100% accurate on volume. Mine was almost a liter less and the other guy in this thread who ordered a blade (he made it on Rusty site) said that his board arrived 1.5 liters less.

Ride Report

A rollercoaster of emotions. Chest to head high, with light onshore winds, mushy outside with steep double ups on the inside. First three waves the board felt like a dog. Slow, boggy and no glide. I started to panic but kept an open mind as the wind was making the waves a little messy and I didn't want to jump to conclusions map. The other variable was that I was trying a new set of fins, not my usual. On my fourth wave, I took off and did a wheelie down the face so I could find the sweet spot. Found it and connected three wraps and a finner on the inside. Okkkkkay. Here we go. Had a bunch of fun waves after that and on my last wave did the best carve of my Summer, couple feet overhead take off, roll in to a head high double up, back door the inside peak, bottom turn and wrapped it going up into the lip, through the lip and down to the bottom, came right back up and hit the closeout section, proned it in. Felt incredible. I think I need to switch back to my usual go to fins and this one looks like a keeper. Regarding the thickness, I don't mind it being thicker than I thought - it doesn't feel thick in the water, in fact the rails feel great. I do think I could have went wider and maybe a half inch or full inch longer. Gothic nose logo still pissing me off.

Digging the shadow, why no black fin boxes? Your name is really Rodin? Do they call you Rod?

I'm thinking a bust shot of Glenn Danzig would look sick under the logo.

A sweet arm tribal tattoo would go great with the nose decal. YMMV.
