Designing a new shape to carry the Marek name was a process that took months of development. After many prototypes were shaped and all of the testing was done, Rusty could not be happier with the end result. Beginning with the overall volume of the board, now reduced by 15%, the Marek is lighter than the original generation. Maintaining a responsive edge and speed into the wake was key in the new design. The Abrupt Continuous rocker line produces great pop off the wake while allowing the board to maintain the quick feel it has been famous for. The next generation Marek features slightly mellower base features resulting in a quicker release off the wake, allowing a rider to initiate a trick sooner. This new generation of Marek is everything you have come to love about Rusty??s shapes in a leaner more responsive package.
