30 years ago, a 17 year old erupted onto the world tour. His backside surfing at Jay Bay was, and still is the best ever seen. He stole the spotlight from the era’s most popular surfer, Tom Curren. And the whole time, Mark “Occy” Occhilupo had a Rusty Preisendorfer surfboard under his feet.
Its now 30 years since Occy’s electric intro into the surfing world and to celebrate Rusty, Occy & Billabong present the descendant of Occy’s magic board, an exact replica of the Rusty 84 model, complete with retro Rusty & Billabong logos. An anniversary gift, but also a little slice of history. Because, perfection endures. Occy replica 84 boards available at selected surf stores July.
