Surfing Magazine has honoured board shaper Rusty Preisendorfer as the shaper of the year
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 November, 2007 : - - With almost four decades of board building experience, thousands of surfboards, and a lifelong dedication to craftsmanship, Rusty fits the bill nicely. While the passion and excitement remains the same Rusty says:
The feeling you get from a new board
a better board thats the one thing thats stayed the same - and the thing that Im enjoying now more than ever is just the pursuit of passion and how much I have at my fingertips now in terms of resources, thats what makes it such an amazing time.
Rustys board shaping partnerships stream from Aerial innovators like Josh Kerr and Jamie OBrien, to tube gurus like Kalani Chapman. There is no question that good shaper/teamrider relationships are important and the success and consistency of Rustys shaping has earned him the respect he deserves.
The January 08 Issue of Surfing Magazine showcases a 10 page article with Rusty himself covering the evolution of Surfboard design, where its been, where its headed and what to look for in the coming years.
