Todd and Charissa,
Well this email is horribly late but I blame that solely on the board you made me. The lime green 5’9″ x 19″ 7/8 x 2″ 3/4 Rascal II you built for me is in a word…. “insane”. I have literally ridden it for 4 weeks straight every single day of the week and am continually impressed with how it performs.
It has turned around what would normally be a boring surf sessions in gutless surf into killer sessions.
The board just kind of lifts up underneath your feet giving you a gliding/ skimming feeling that I have not experienced before.
My surfing has never looked or felt better and I can’t thank you enough for that!
I know that this board is reported as a “small wave / gutless surf” board, but I have to say
it is one of the most versatile boards
I have ever ridden.
With the 5 fin setup, I can make adjustments for when faces start jacking up to give the board more bite into the wave (It ripped right through pumping head high to HH+ waves). The waves have gotten quite a bit bigger the last two days and I moved back to my standard shortboard……
I lasted for all of 4 rides before I pulled the Rascal II out again.
That would be my only complaint about this board,
I want to ride it in everything!!
I will definitely be calling upon you in the future for another board.
Thanks again to both of you! Todd for making the board I always wanted and Charissa for being hands down the coolest person to do business with.
