Hailing from the shores of Maul, this regular-footin’ do-gooder needs little introduction. The name Dusty Payne is synonymous with progression and style: whether it’s small wave trickery or charging a heavy swell, this young gun can dance through it all. Dusty will be filming with Taylor Steele and competing in select WQS and Pro Jr. events this season, with the goal of qualifying for the WCT in the next few years.

'We are super excited to have Dusty on the team. He’s pushing the forefront of surfing, plus he has great style. This year he is striving to win any competition he enters, and is really focusing on putting together a good video part and gaining editorial coverage.' - Surf Mentor, Jason Kenworthy

Dusty joins Nike 6.0 surfers Casey Brown, Nat Young, Koa Smith, Monyca Byrne-Wickey, Riley Metcalf, Evan Geiselman, and Kai Barger.
