Rusty Slayer

Over the past few years Rusty has been fine-tuning a board that handles solid surf, but is short enough to fit in the pocket. Slayer is the product, and the results have been incredible.

I like to ride a Slayer in hollow head-high to double-overhead, hollow surf. Great board for Hawaii, Caribbean, Mexico, and your local Southern California wave when it’s doing it’s thing.

“Start with a board designed as a next one up and take 4″ off the front end. The wide point is now 2″ forward of center instead of 2″ back. Add a touch of width to the center. Re-blend everything so the front end has a little fuller nose and relaxed rocker. It paddles well, makes the drop and fits because it is shorter. The back end of the board is meant for better waves. Pulling the wide point forward gives you a rail line that feels a little longer yet offers you more control with less board up front. Proven track record. Feedback is super positive. Little tool, big job.”

Order a Slayer from Rusty by calling 858 578 0414.

Customize it with grab rails, and EPS or PU foam, and your favorite fin configuration. I recommend getting 5 fin boxes so you can play with a 3, 4, and 5 fin set-up to see what you like best.
