I really like this board........it was made for me about 12 months ago and I have enjoyed it every time I have paddled out. I'm 51 years old, average to slightly good surfer.... This board works best for me from head high to double overhead and is a very capable paddler. The board is fast and fun and will hold rail when needed. i bought the torsion spring model and have not seen a ding yet!! I also surf a 5-8 Dwart Too on smaller days, which I highly recommend....... Get a SD, its not just for San Diego!
I order this board custom , Pedro did great job. This board is works perfect for SC. I am 51 years and 177 pounds and did not want a long board, the board is 5'10'' / 28.8 liters For my next surfboard will be pretty much the same I would just ask refine the tail a little bit, overall is very good
Firstly customer service and turnaround time was insane. From the date of order to the day of receive was two weeks. I got the 5'10" SD, and man oh man! The best board I have ever ridden! I am so happy with the board. It feels loose under my feet, holds a rail really well in turns. When Hitting the lip there is no doubt the board is coming back down the wave with you ready to hit the lip again. Never have I felt so comfortable on a board. Thank you! I will be trying the Torsion Spring technology next for sure.
I live in Santa Cruz but I’m from Orange County. I paddled out at Little Wind n Sea yesterday for my first session on a stick dims 5’8 in an E-Poly construction.I had the best time! Waves were chest to overhead and glassy with some barrel sections. The board is very fast and loose but has a good amount of hold. You can throw 100% at any turn and it will stay in track without losing any speed. The combination of low entry rocker, moderate single concave, and foiled rails work perfectly in Santa Cruz waves. The wide squash tail with a hip in the tail template make for fast easy turning. Can’t wait for summer. It does red line a little bit in overhead surf but bigger fins helps that (I’m riding it as a thruster) Great Job Guys! Also I’ve got both traction pads front and rear on it and they work great with booties. No sticking. You can easily slide your feet around and not lose traction. A+
Could be the best Rusty board I've had yet, coming off a Catfish and a Dwart. Board catches waves with ease and really sticks to the face of the wave with tons of drive and control, but still super maneuverable. Although it's called the SD, it's found a home up in NorCal and will be my go to board!
