The T-Dwart is a narrower thinner version of the original Dwart, coupling a performance rail and slightly more rocker. In addition, the double wing round tail produces a quicker more agile surfboard. The board works perfect in the smaller and more challenging conditions, and is easy to whip around. Most ride the T-Dwart 3-6 inches shorter then their standard shortboard.

The Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach has been cranking through this past week and weekend with some amazing surfing going down at the legendary Australian break. Rusty team riders Josh Kerr and Willian Cardoso have both been standouts in the event pushing their way through the heats to rack up the points.
Unfortunately Kerrzy went down yesterday in round 5 against Santa Cruz's Nat Young, even though Josh had put on an amazing show, it came down to the last 15 secs of the heat.
Congrats to Rusty team rider Willian Cardoso for taking the win in his round 4 heat and advancing to the quarter finals! Look for him to blow up and continue his momentum when he goes toe to toe with Nat Young to try and get through to the semis.
Rusty team rider Josh Kerr has been on a terror in the contests down under, taking 2nd place this past weekend at the Margaret River Drug Aware Pro in Australia! Kerrzy was able to blaze through heats to make it to his second final in three weeks!
Kerrzy was up against Hawaiian charger Dusty Pane in the finals, and despite an incredible display of surfing power, Kerrzy was inched out of the first place spot taking home the 2nd place win. Kerrzy now gets to add to his collection of growing Margaret River Pro trophies (he won in 2010 as well) and prep for the next stop.
