Size matters according to Rusty Malinoski. His new Rusty Pro shape provides the surface area for massive airs but he says "My board feels lighter than anything I've ever ridden." With more length comes a wider overall profile, creating a more poppy feel, "Light & poppy & snappy" says Rusty. As with previous shapes from Aaron Stumpf for Rusty, this board will take you swiftly to the wake holding edge all the way. New for Rusty is a set of shorter .7" SS Beam Fins, which when desired will allow you to break free or save landings when you're a tad off the mark.
Shaun's vision for the perfect plated binding has quickly become a team favorite, the Team X Binding. If you're a seasoned pro or just getting comfortable standing sideways, this is the perfect binding for you. The Team X closed toe binding offers mid-range support for the rider looking for a little extra flex with solid heel hold thanks to its heel retention strap. This feature pulls the riders foot into the heel pocket as the binding is laced for reduced lift. Dual quick cinch lace zones and seamless liner construction allow for a fit that produces no pressure points. The Team X also utilizes the new Fusion Plate System for a lightweight feel and the closest binding to board connection possible.
