I was lucky enough to get to visit Rusty Preisendorfer yesterday in San Diego and sneak behind the curtains and get a look at where the magician perfects his tricks. A kinder gentleman you will never meet. A true poet warrior.

Knowing of my passion for 80's twin fins, Rusty showed me a recent acquisition of his, an early bat tail twinny he shaped back in the old days at Canyon.

Where the magic happens.

Scary big boards.

There was history everywhere.

Half the top 44's home numbers are up on that wall.

Local break.

Local culture.

Trip planning.


  1. We have EXACTLY the same taste in surfboards. It's really rather spooky. Did you happen to ask Rusty about his C5 design? I always wanted to see more of those. They looked badass.
