Big Cat – Rusty Surfboards

The Big Cat has a mid to late 80′s vibe and is designed for surfers who want a board that has plenty of volume to catch waves, but won’t compromise versatility. The Big Cat’s firmer/fuller rail helps with reaction time. It rides kind of like a bigger shortboard.

Surfers who still charge and shred but could use a little extra length and volume really like the Big Cat. Surfers transitioning to shorter boards as they improve also like the Big Cat.

Motorcycles have Enduro models, surfing has the Big Cat.
