Rusty Heckler Review

What the Rusty Surfboards site says about the Heckler:

‘New for 2016, the Heckler is a Fish with some new ideas. We’ve utilized a “fishy” outline with a shallow dovetail and pronounced wing to produce a lightening fast small wave wonder. The proven Venturi bottom design that has been so well received on two of our other models, the Rooster and the Hustler, adds a new dimension for fishing and Fish lovers.’

What people are saying about it:

“Excellent board , very versatile ,good turn, very good in small medium waves.” – Fran on

“Just received my new Rusty Heckler and absolutely love it. I’m 57 and weigh 185 and live in Texas so I ordered a 5’10. We just had a two day ground swell that was 2-4 ft and super lined up with offshores.. This board is one of the fastest I’ve ever ridden and is good in the pocket and great off the top. Can’t wait to ride it with the 2/1 setup next. Works great as a quad! Thinking about ordering the new twin next.. Thanks Guys!” – Brett Hopkins on

“The Heckler, WOW. I’ve been surfing since I was 10 years old and competitively surfing since I was 12. I’m 39 years old now so I’ve surfed a ton of boards in my time and the Heckler is hands down the fastest board I’ve ever surfed. Not only that it takes very little effort to get it going and it paddles great with energy saving floatation. I ordered The Heckler for east coast (USA) small waves like weak waist to chest high and less, which we often surf especially during our hot summer months. I was a little concerned with the responsiveness throughout tighter top to bottom turns with such a wide tail block but I haven’t felt any stickiness with my preferred quad fin set up. I also ordered mine in EPS epoxy construction which gives it a lighter snapper feel while surfing and adds a little extra float when paddling. Another bonus to the epoxy construction is the resin has a longer flex lifespan in the glass that makes your board feel fresher longer. If your a middle aged surfer and want to surf smaller waves fast and feel like a grom again then this is the board for you. The Fountain of Youth is found in the Heckler.” – Blue Spivey on

“The Rusty Heckler has a full fish-like outline with a winged swallow tail to give you plenty of control. With a beak in the nose and a flat rocker, you can get through smaller sections.The Heckler is a fun board designed to be ridden small to catch small waves. Very quick and very responsive.” –
