Yes, you guessed correctly; the Rascal II is an offspring of the original Lil’ Rascal. Don’t worry, it’s not meant to replace the trusty, tried and true design of the original Rascal….
It started as just some thoughts…..ideas for a new board design after contemplating just how much fun I’d had on my Lil’ Rascal over the last year and a half. So, here’s what I came up with….and you know what? ….it goes gangbusters:
Rascal II – I added a slight bit more curve in the last 12 inches of the nose rocker so it rails nice and tight in little nook and cranny pockets.
I put in a concave deck. It feels like your riding a skateboard and responds super quick edge-to-edge. The caved deck also gives you this insane feeling like you are riding “in” the board and “in“ the wave…you gotta just try it to understand what I mean. I also shaped in four “parabolic” (fancy for curved) channels that give extra lift, drive and directional hold. The moontail releases the water being compressed through the channels in a way that keeps the tail crisp and free to break it loose when you want to.
channels at an additional $100.
It has also been set-up to ride as either a quad or thruster…..keeping your fin options open. In a nutshell…..it’s more versatile, faster and looser; skates though the flats quicker, and surfs tighter and more responsive in the pocket than ever before.
