took my Rascal 2 to Nica last September and I was blown away

Per our conversation,

I took my Rascal 2 to Nica last September and I was blown away with how fun a fish could be in powerful surf.

We had a great week there, with the smaller days running chest to head and the larger days running just under double over head with perfect conditions the whole time. I brought my Rascal and my Monsta and loved them both.

The Monsta handled like a magic carpet,

better than any shortboard I’ve owned,

but the Rascal was probably my favorite to ride.

I love riding a fish and the Rascal was like a high performance board in a fish shape…full rail turns, could stall on a dime, top to bottom, it let me surf to the best of my “limited” abilities haha.

Clearly I liked it so much that one year later I am ordering another one the same day I snapped the original Rascal’s tail…

On a side note, I’ve been seeing more and more of your boards getting recognition and I think that you absolutely deserve it. Stoked to see your hard work and AMAZING customer service is paying off and getting the recognition you both deserve.

Cheers from the Panhandle,
