What the Rusty Surfboards site says about the Model 8:
‘For the Model 8 we added more rocker coming from the Sista Brotha which translates into quicker and shorter arc turns. The deck is flatter, creating more natural flex, paddling power yet making the board more sensitive.
A bit fuller nose helps transitioning through flatter spots and dead sections but not compromising the lip attack. The board is fast, loose and surfs a great variety of conditions from punchy beach breaks to long points.’
What people are saying about it:
“Only writing a review because there was none when I bought this board. Im 6’1 and 70 kgs and bought the 5’11, it goes like an absolute dream. Rode it today for the first time in 2-3ft aussie east coast beachie like waves and it held its line, went well in the barrel and is definately the quickest board iv ever riden. Id say this board could hold its own in big surf and at the same time is whippy enough for some big airs and turns.” – Cale on Rustysurfboards.com
“The Model 8 is best in waves around the chest – just over head high mark. It’s been designed with a lower entry rocker to provide increased paddle power and added tail rocker for surfing in the pocket and drawing nice tight arcs and snappy turns. Best for those nice clean days at home when you want a performance shorty you can trust. The fuller rails make this board nice and forgiving through turns, landing floaters and airs.” – Boardcave.com.au
Ideal Wave Height: 2-6ft.
