Rusty Surfboards has been leading in surfboard design and innovation since 1985, based out of San Diego, California. Rusty Preisendorfer shaped his first surfboard during the winter of 1969/1970. The years that followed were full of study, practice, experience and testing. By the 80's the world began to take notice of the innovation coming out of Rusty's shaping and by the end of '84 more than half of the top 16 surfers were getting boards from Rusty. Since that time creation has continued to flourish from Rusty's hands and his brand continues to grows and expand globally.
