the board turns very well in small surf and will also go good when the swell picks up. the versatility is great.
I ride this board exclusively at spots when I know I'm going backside. This is the BEST board I have ever ridden for surfing backside. Theres something about the fluted rails and the single that gives me an amazingly tight turning radius and the rail to rail is effortless.
I've been riding a 6'2" Rusty Bali Single for over 2 years now and it's one of my favorite boards. It's fast and turns really well; and can hold in bigger waves too. It's a different feel and I always have FUN on it!
