The Rusty Yes Thanks is a pretty surfboard, not too aggressive, just a gentle rocker throughout the board, but it is a performance shortboard so it does have a bit more rocker than some of those more forgiving boards out on the market today.
Josh Kerr’s pro model, this is the Rusty Surfboards Yes Thanks Surfboard Review! A good wave board for better days (and more skilled surfers) the Yes, Thanks can still handle slightly smaller, weaker waves.

However, the Rusty Surfboards Yes Thanks comes into it’s own on the standout days when it’s bigger, better and more critical!
Hope you enjoy this review of the Yes Thanks by Rusty Surfboards!
Have a question? Wondering if the Rusty Yes Thanks Surfboard is the right board for you? Let’s talk about it in the comments…
+ It keeps a lot of speed and flow through the board, even in some less than great conditions.
+ The board holds a lot of speed and holds a good line.
+ The foil in the fin has been good and board generates speed fairly well.
– If you’re looking at that grovelly kind of stuff when you get on a little fish or whatever, this probably isn’t the board.

Hey, I’m Craig for CompareSurfboards.com and today I’m doing a review of the Yes Thanks by Rusty Surfboards. I’ve been riding the Yes Thanks in 5’11”, 18 7/8″ and 2 7/16″, which comes at 28.2 liters. That’s the stock 5’11” dimensions for the Yes Thanks. The Yes Thanks has pretty, not too aggressive, and just a gentle rocker throughout the board, but it is a performance shortboard so it does have a bit more rocker than some of those more forgiving boards out on the market today.
Flipping the board over, on the bottom, the Yes Thanks has a single concave through the center of the board that goes through most of the board and it has a really light double concave through the fins. The Yes Thanks is Josh Kerr pro model by Rusty and I think as you would realize it is a bit more of a performance shape.
I think for the person that wants a board its kind of an all around shortboard, lends to more performance or when the waves get a little bit better in low conditions or someone who is more of an intermediate to advanced surfer, this is definitely a good board to try out.
The pluses of the board is when your local conditions get a bit better, maybe having more than maybe one board in the quiver.
I think the Yes Thanks is a really good board and also like some of the reef break waves that are bit punchy and hollow its definitely holds it’s own. It has a fair rocker through the nose but nothing too aggressive and it is quite forgiving considering the rocker.
On the minuses, I’ve said if you’re looking for groovely kind of stuff when you get on a little fish or whatever, this probably isn’t the board for that but I think you’re looking at it for more of a performance shape for better waves. That’s definitely where it’s strengths are.
Experience in the Surf
Lately I’ve been riding the Yes Thanks in a variety of conditions around our local beaches and a few of our local reef breaks and we’ve had a bit of a swell and waves have been pretty good. I must say the board’s been holding it’s own in between average swell conditions but also we’ve had more bigger, more solid waves. It’s definitely been a good board to ride.
We’ve had some pretty hollow, kind of longer waves. The board holds a lot of speed and holds a good line. It has been good.
When you maybe look at more of a step up board, as a shortboard, it’s been pretty good. It does lend to when the waves are a little bit better, have a little bit more push and I guess the local spots are on a bit better.
I’ve had the Yes Thanks with features and I’ve been riding the Rusty One. I didn’t ride anything else. I just saw it a bit quite fitting putting a Rusty Fin and Rusty board. The foil in the fin has been good and board generates speed fairly well. I haven’t tried any other fins with it but this has worked really well.
That’s my review today of the Yes Thanks by Rusty Surfboards for CompareSurfboards.com. If you’re in the market for a performance shape for when your waves get a little bit better under low conditions, I definitely would recommend checking the board out.
Thanks for watching.
