Flat deck makes for a more stable feel,paddle power and carry through turns.The rail feels thicker than dimensions stated. The continuous rocker releases well without losing drive and projection The board is very versatile and functional. Frothing!

This is the first Rusty board that I have owned, so I didn't have any preconceived expectations as to the build quality and finish of the Rusty product. As soon as I unpacked the Heckler, I was stoked. It looked right; it felt right. You could tell straight away this was a top shelf product. It felt it was a bit of a shame to fit it out with the tail pad, leggie, fins and the first coat of wax. That feeling evaporated on the first wave. It glided in effortlessly. A quick response off the bottom set up the rest of the wave. This board is so versatile. I'm looking forward to pushing this board to find its limits. It will probably be my limits reached first..HA!

So bad strength wise. The epoxy doesn’t bind very well with the foam at all and is ver weak in construction. Went through a couple of these boards very easily. Never experienced anything so weak glass wise on my 30 years of surfing.

For starters, this thing looks sweet. Its got that old retro look to it but also a very modern take on it. The flat deck and wide nose makes it easy to paddle and get into waves quick and early. The channeled bottom makes the board insanely fast, drivey, and manoeuvrable. This board makes the most out of those small, mushy waves and it has turned into my go to board in these California waves. It’s the greatest combination of speed and responsiveness. You gotta give this thing a go!

Overall

Epic board, really fast and drivey down the the line. Paddle monster, my wave count has gone through the roof. Tends to hold a line but can be a little stiff to throw around because of the channels. You need to rip it but have got the hang of it it’s all time. Can ride in all conditions Bought 6’2 with 32.5L. I normally ride a 33 - 34L board but still feels like plenty of foam and heaps under the chest with the flat deck. Channel runs through the tail rail. Frothing would buy again in a flash

Board is super fast and extremely responsive. Venturi bottom contours make this board extremely fun. Best board I've ridden in a long time!
