Jacob tore the bag out of his local spots and together, helped cement the reputation of a group of riders north of Los Angeles as...to use a cliche...a force to be reckoned with.

    The Reale Deal Show #92- Rusty Morrison

    Rusty Morrison lives a spartan life of a traveler. He works long, hard hours as a FIFO guy (Fly In Fly Out), squirrels away his savings, and then goes on global odysseys to warm waves- a life we all aspire to. I wanted to find out what makes this DK specialist tick, so I sat down with Rusty during Bodyboard Holidays' El Salvador trip to get the down low on one of Oz's nomadic legends. http://www.bodyboard-holidays.comhttps://www.ebodyboarding.com/pages/bodyboarding_travelhtt...

Awesome podcast.

Been bodyboarding for years and this is such a great podcast. Jay was my favorite bodyboarder growing up because he was from the east coast. Been following him for years on videos, Mags, contests and also commenting. Seems like a good dude with a lot of knowledge and has a great voice for podcasting. Hopefully he’ll keep putting content out , selling Bodyboards and supplies on ebodyboarding. Listen to this podcast especially if you grew up in the 80s, 90s and etc.
