For the Model 8 we added more rocker coming from the Sista Brotha which translates into quicker and shorter arc turns. The deck is flatter, creating more natural flex, paddling power yet making the board more sensitive. A bit fuller nose helps transitioning through flatter spots and dead sections but not compromising the lip attack. The board is fast, loose and surfs a great variety of conditions from punchy beach breaks to long points.

User friendly and easy to ride

The model 8 is related to the sista brotha but is geared towards more firing conditions. User friendly and easy to ride like the sis/bro, it turns great but can handle steeper waves more easily. (Although you can push the sis/bro in some juice!) The model 8 I love to grab when it looks like it’s steep and hollow.

Custom 6'6" Model 8

I picked up my Model 8 a few weeks ago and thanked Pedro and the other guys at the shop. I haven't had an opportunity to write you a thank you email yet so I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know this board rips! Not only does it look better than I was expecting but it's also the best board I've ever felt under my feet. You and your team nailed it. I'm a customer for life and can't wait to work with you guys again.

great board

Got a custom 5.10 just a touch thicker than a stock. Got it to replace my 5.9 Sista Brotha as a good waves board and was the right move. Got it in E-poly. Bright white, lighter than PU/PE, perfect rails and foil. Been riding it in waves shoulder to head high + and it is just a rippa. Very fast and can be surfed more aggressively than my other boards. Rusty seems to know a thing or two about shaping good boards. For me, I see his expertise in the rails and foil/ volume distribution. To get the rails and the paddling volume like this from a different shaper I would have to get a thicker board which I did not want. Hats off to Rusty and his crew.

Love the board and team behind it

I had a trip scheduled and the rusty team went above and beyond to get the board to me before my trip. Tracy, Pedro, you guys are my heroes. I am surfing the Genevieve hurricane swell in Cabo bc of you!!

Perfect compromise between performance and user friendly

Bought the Model 8 off the rack in Europe (there is a factory in Portugal making Rusty boards) and was so happy with it that I ended up getting another one online. So yeah considering I have 2 of them you can imagine I like the Model 8. It paddles great and works in punchy French/Mexican beach breaks just as much as on your regular California point. Being the average intermediate surfer I really enjoy how forgiving the board but without sacrificing speed or performance in general. Ordering from the website was a first for me, but not a last. The team followed up via email and phone calls to make sure they'd build a board that would work for me. Rusty made some adjustment to the stock dims according to my age/weight/level, suffice to say he nailed it. Oh and yeah ion case you're wondering he did sign it, how cool is that? I got a PU build, my dims ended up being 6'3 32.9L /19.35"/2.45" I'm 6'1/178 (1m84/79Kg).
