Not all of them are that way, and yes I've had good ones from them.

When you have several guys shaping under a label I feel you never know what to expect.


The couple boards I have had, close to 10 years ago, were blady as fug so maybe things have changed. I haven't seen them on the racks in awhile.

My SD is so pinched in the rails. In the best way. More so than any other board I have and its for average conditions. Im sure they havent nailed every board but from what I've seen and experienced, they tend to foil their more performance oriented boards much more than some other big labels.

I've never felt up an SD.

This was just my experience the few times I've been to their warehouse over the past few years.

I can't name all the models I've fondled, but the Mi Amigo and If I remember the Sista Brotha among others were both were too full for me.

Really? I know Rusty has been using CAD for a long time now and assumed consistency between shapers there would be really good.

I ordered mine online

I wanted epoly and they didn’t have any in stock but they had it shaped in a week

I would say the rails are medium

Definitely not as full as CI rails tend to be for example

I don’t have a problem with fuller rails though

There are several R models I’d like to check out— SD, Blade, Model 8

Wish Rusty would respond to your negative comments .

I doubt he has 6 ghost shapers

He has had some really great ones too

Isn’t the Amigo an 80s type full figured design?

Happy Shovel opened my eyes to pro rials on a goofball outline.

I wouldn’t knock Rusty. They’re a quality shop experimenting with their designs.

Just for the record, Rusty personally sent me a CAD file before shaping my board, and the board itself turned out exactly as advertised, including the rails and foil. In addition, I was told that the board may take up to 8 weeks because I ordered torsion spring, which is more labor intensive, but the board was delivered less than 3 weeks later.

It was a great ordering experience, and the board itself is flawless.

In terms of Rusty's shaping team, I didn't even ask who would be shaping my board because their roster and QC is impressive.

YMMV, as it does for every custom order of a handcrafted, artisan product.

I know three people that ordered rusty's in the last year. All came as ordered in a very short amount of time with great customer service. My 50 year old buddy rips on his sista brother. 50 years old and riding 26-27 liters.

Really like Rusty's experimentation and open mindedness. His boards really appeal to me, and he seems like a nice, intelligent guy.

If I were in the area, I'd try to build a customer/shaper relationship.
