This squatty firebrand has all the speed of a retro-style shape, but with the holding power of a modern board. Using a bulby outline with a flatter rocker, full boxy rails, and new generation hull contours; it loves to rocket on 2 foot gutless days when most people are running for their longboards. This design has better traction than your typical retro-style speeders. Should be ridden 5” inches shorter and 1” wider than your standard shortboard. This is the fastest, funnest board I make for those of you who find yourselves surfing in small, weak, mushy, slopey, sectiony pointbreak waves ala 1st point Malibu, Leo Carrillo, Churches, etc… You don’t have to ride a longboard on those days anymore
Check out the Rascal Movie to see how the Lil’ Rascal will have you flying past the longboarders at your favorite spot.
