    not likely. i'm pretty sure whomever is making them now bought the rights to the name outright & owes nothing in royalties to rusty or the other guys who used to shape under that label.

    Yeah the sell them so cheap cause they move them fast . Soon as u go over the brigde into Wildwood thats the first place you see. Most shoobies dont wanna shop around they just wanna get a board and get there tennis racket re strung while they wait.

    If you go the the water park on the boardwalk you will see hundreds of canyon's hung up as Decore LOL. They didnt they didnt even care how they hung them . Drilled screws right threw the foam LOL

    I had one about 7 years ago for a year or two. It was a good deal and i was looking for a wide fat fish for the summer. It was a super fun board for knee to waist high surf and had no complaints with it, especially the price.

    This has come up on this board before... Rumor was this guy on Long Beach, NY bought the rights to all those old school labels, Canyon, Surfboards Australia, Spoiler, basically all the really cheap labels you now see the beginners on. Heard he was a real d-bag too.
    My friend bought one, and as much as I protested, he couldnt resist the price. Got 2 dings through the glass the first time out. Said he'll listen to me next time...

    good read up on the history of these boards. gotta love 7 year old threads!!

    However, If you think about it, its a good business plan no matter how much you hate it. Summer people who don't want to plop down 700 on a new board see these as attractive. They give surfing a go for a season or two and usually decide to give it up. If they stay with the sport, they sell it and get a real board. If they don't get a real board they should be sent to china to get kicked by a mule.

    that being said, shame on canyon, challenger, ect for selling the rights tho their names. They really give those proud old names a black eye, but it probably improves the value of the originals too.
