Had the opportunity to feel one of these up the other day. Intriguing to say the least. Such a radical departure from anything else out there. You think Rusty makes some flat decks... this deck is flat to an extreme. Down rails through the nose.

A few days later I'm still tripping out on it, cannot imagine it's easy to surf and it was actually a bit intimidating but for man I want to try one so bad...

I couldnt pay attention to anything in that video because that kids haircut was so effen stupid.

That being said, would bang (the board, not the kid with the stupid haircut).

Put deep double concave instead of channels and you have a CI Dagger.

The foil looked/felt quite a bit different than the Dagger. Dagger is much more foiled.

Most excited about the subtle single to double version


It's on my 2019 wish list

I love that Rusty makes boards that are different to the CI/Lost/JS/DHD standard fare.

I don't see that unless you can explain. Lots of different outlines, bottoms, and rockers from all. AND you can order custom from all of them. CI will put channels in a Flyer if you ask. That's been available for years. And they can add foil to a Dagger if you're inclined. Sweet board but R.'s with channels got to be kinda pricey.

As far as stock boards, if you ever have chance to visit the warehouse the boards have a noticeably different style than pretty much everyone else out there.

And as far as performance boards go you're not going to find anything like the Whiplash there.

I totally agree that the other big manufacturers have a custom arm which can make whatever you want. My point was that Rusty is doing it more in stock boards - super flat decks, venturi bottoms, etc.

Anyone riding one of these? Considering a channel bottom one. That or a Lost Rad Ripper.

I fondled one. I was disappointed in the foil.

I was hoping it had the 80’s outline with a modern foil, but the foil is pretty 80’s as well.

Wow, I'm kind of surprised to hear that considering the volume for the dims seems very low for generously foiled 80's inspired boards.

Instead of going for a stock blade or stock rad ripper, I took a little bit of inspiration from both shapes and ordered a narrower rad ripper at 5'10 x 19.5 x 2.4 and asked for 4 channels. Let's hope it takes lost less than 5 months to get this one done...

80's foil doesn't bother me tooo much. I'd have to go custom though and I'm pretty sure Rusty has a much quicker turn around than Lost and I can get it in E-Poly.
