The Blade is a direct descendant of the famous 1984.
In 2014 Rusty Preisendorfer hooked up with Mark “Occy” Occhilupo and did a 100 board reissue of his famous signature “84” model. A year ago Rusty started getting asked to lean out the nose and lose the beak. In addition, he modernised the bottom slightly. The surfers who tried them freaked. Since then Rusty has made them with 4 deep channels. He also decided to give a very modern bottom with a deep single to double concave a shot. Bottom line is that virtually anyone that has tried any of the different bottoms has been psyched and some have also ordered them longer as well.
The Blade works in a wide range of conditions. For now we are offering the Blade in a mellow, subtle single to double concave, that bottom with 4 deep channels, and a modern deep single concave.
Construction: Epoxy Resin.
Epoxy resin is a much nobler resin, used in the sailboat and aerospace industry. It is more expensive and harder to work with, taking much longer to dry and requiring a more sophisticated process to build a board. But, It has way better flex, does not get brittle and keeps the flex for as long as the board lasts. It keeps that same “brand new “ board feeling.
*All boards are custom shaped, so please allow up to 6 weeks for shaping and delivery.
