Meet our shapers

Rusty Surfboards has a longstanding reputation for building high quality performance driven surfboards. Rusty Preisendorfer heads up his team of established innovative designers and shapers that includes Rick Hamon, Hoy Runnels, Mike Russo, Pedro Battaglin and Clint Preisendorfer. Honorable mention: Steve Barto, Roger Beal, Terry Goldsmith, Greg Sauritch, John Carper, David Barr and Chris Borst. Working collectively these craftsmen continually strive to refine the Rusty shapes and designs to the highest level of quality and performance. Each Rusty model produced has been researched and tested before being released to our customers. Our boards are handcrafted here in San Diego by our shaping and glassing teams made up of individuals that all excel at their craft. You can rely on the crew at Rusty Surfboards to build your next board and know without a doubt who shaped it.
