Two days in one state, being the southern-most of Australia, and infinite kilometers, and excellent waves starring Noa Deane. Cut to Dirty Beaches’ Golden Desert Sun, by Shane Fletcher. Dislikers of back-to-back spins should find this to be digital splendour.


Rusty Australia in Collaboration with RUSTY PREISENDORFER is stoked to release the limited edition “HAPPY SHOVEL”

Josh Kerr has reached another Pipe final at the Volcom Pipe Pro. Just over 1 month ago Josh was narrowly beaten by Joel Parkinson in the Billabong Pipe Masters final. Josh continued his amazing form at renown break over last few days during the 5* QS event.
Josh scored a perfect 10 pt ride during his 1/4 final and was narrowly beaten by John John Florence in the final, finishing 3rd behind John & Chris Ward.





Take a glimpse into the competitive (and otherwise) mind of OUR KIND Josh Kerr.
 The Gold-Coaster turned Cali local and 2012 Pipe runner-up talks air shows (the good life!), skating (backyard ramps!), Indo (heaven!), boards (shorter, fatter!) and more..

Rusty team rider Josh Kerr finished 2nd place behind newly crowned World Champion Joel Parkinson at the Billabong Pipeline Masters and capped off the year ranked 8th on the World Tour.

It wasn’t an easy day at the office for Josh as he feared the worst after the Banzai Pipeline spat, hissed and threw him onto the reef in round four. Alarm bells rang for Kerr when he felt pins and needles thru his neck and shoulders and tingling fingers followed by a loss of movement down the left side of his body. Kerr with injury still won the heat and before his next heat being the 1/4 finals he was rushed to hospital for X-rays to see if any serious damage had been done to his neck.

"It was so scary", Kerr said. "It was like my whole left side was paralysed. I had pins and needles, tingles every where, it was insane. They told me I needed to get to hospital immediately and have an X-ray to make sure my neck wasn’t fractured".

Kerr returned to the beach in time for his 1/4 final and progressed to the semi's where he would end Kelly Slaters 12th World Title hopes.

The final could of gone either way but the newly crowned world champion Joel Parkinson was on a roll winning both a world title and the Pipe Masters in one day.

Congratulations Kerrzy on your 2nd place at the Pipeline Masters and your 8th place on the World Tour for 2012.
