Over 20 years ago I made the first Moby. I had ridden fishes in the early 70’s. I wanted to revisit the glide and speed of a fish. The first Moby I built, 1999, was 7’10 22.5 3.1. Volume? No idea. No matter.

It did the job in smaller surf and I rode it on some bigger days. I was quite happy with it. It made the cut on the 2 or 3 board quiver I kept in the back of my truck.

In 2005 I made my first 4 fin Moby. I really liked the feel of this ride. I had ridden it in surf up to approximately 5 foot. One day I thought the surf was pretty small, so I took my Moby down to Blacks. Nothing else. I was very fortunate to have a key. When I got to the bottom of the road, the surf looked as I thought it would. Pretty small but clean. I put on my wetsuit, pulled the Moby out of the back of my truck, closed the hatch. I looked out at the lineup and did a double take. A solid 6-foot set. Fu#k! Well, it was the only board I had with me, so off I went.

My first wave, I was trippen, because I thought I would really have to pull back on the reigns. No. The board took off like a bat out of hell. It had no top end. After a few more waves, I was completely sold on this design and the versatility it had.

It’s been very popular, some of my good friends had them. What was interesting, their sons, some of the best LJ reef surfers, tried them and didn’t want to give them back. They ordered duplicates. Not smaller, leaner versions. The same boards. They actually rode them on the bigger days.

Because of it’s size, it is a great board for beginners and is a great alternative to a longboard. As it turns out, it’s good for all ranges of ability and surf. The entry rocker is relaxed which helps with the paddle. The exit rocker is on the average plus side which helps with turning and fits into the waves better. The fuller outline provides lots of surface area: glide and speed. The rails are fuller but somewhat angular with a lower apex providing lift and control.

I were relegated to one board, this would be it. Fun.

    7'0 Moby Fish

    7’0 Moby Fish is my favorite board post hip replacement surgery. That thing planes so well. And it goes on rail. It proper rips - which I never expected from such a big fish. Even when I’m ready for shorter boards, I don't think I will switch. I've ridden it in double overhead Razors and 1 ft Scripps. It rips in both. Quiver Killer. Thanks again.

    I ordered a custom model of this board and I can honestly say that it is the most fun I have ever had on a surfboard. This board will catch any wave that comes your way. It surfs like a dream! This board turns and cruises effortlessly down the line. The quad fins are perfect and allow for so much speed and control. I would highly recommend this board to anyone of any skill level and in any condition.

    A labour of love

    Team R. - Thank you so much for the custom surfcraft! It rides beyond what i hoped for. I had Oldmans to myself today and was like a kid in a candy store. It even works as a twin fin. You guys are the top of the industry! Surfing has been my passion for 50 years. As an aero-engineer i obsess over quality and details. Quality is always hit or miss in this industry, but Rusty has proven to be a sure thing. Even the color work is crisp, evenly opaque, and perfect. It can only be a labour of love to maintain this level of quality. Proud to ride the Rusty’s.

    Great Transition Board

    I'm a 40 year-old 6'3" 190lb. advanced beginner/intermediate surfer who started a bit later in life. My first board was a 9'3" Takayama In the Pink, which is a great, stable log for a beginner (and a great noserider for better longboarders). I was looking for a solid transition board that would allow me to shave like a foot and a half of length off without sacrificing too much volume/stability or paddle power. Royce helped me narrow down some finalists to this board and it was a great choice. The MF paddles like a longboard but offers more versatility and a lot more responsiveness with the 2+2 set up. It's a really stable, smooth ride but much more agile than a longboard. It took a few frustrating sessions to figure out where the sweet spot was in terms of positioning, but now that we've got to know one another, I'm absolutely loving it. Huge THANK YOU to the whole Rusty crew; customer service is atmospheres better than other shapers my buddies have ordered customs through. Thanks so much for all the hard work and assistance, guys - I'll definitely be back.
