The Keg Designed By Wade Carmichael & Rusty Preisendorfer.
The Keg is a stout brew designed by Rusty Preisendorfer and Wade Carmichael. It’s most distinct feature is the high nose and tail rocker as well as the USA made apple core black stringer. The bottom features a fairly deep single concave through the board. The deepest point is a third of the way up from the block. Rusty typically measures tail blocks 1 inch up so he can get a more consistent read meaning; that the measurement is not as affected by the overall tail curve.
The Keg measures in at a hearty 7.8 inches one inch up. That’s almost an inch wider than most typical high performance short boards. The foil is shifted back. On most of Rusty’s boards he prefers a neutral foil or 0.1 inch more in the rear of the board. The Keg is 0.2 inches thicker than the nose. Significant.
Wade’s dims on his weapon of choice out of the rack for most conditions is 6’0. Slightly bigger than average because Wade is an all Australian bloke, built from Young Henry’s lagers and steak and veggies. 19.5 wide, 2.55 inches thick and 31 litres of frosty volume.
The Keg is the pro model for Wade Carmichael and his go-to board competing in the WSL. Built for conditions all over the world, from point breaks, beachies, punchy slabs and everything in between. We can’t promise you that you’re going to be able to throw as much spray as Wade does but at least with this board under your feet you’ll know it’s your fault and not the board.
