The Quest Rorshack Longboard is made by the company, Made in Mars, same as the Quest Super Cruiser which we wrote a review on here. And the similarities don’t end there. This board behaves a lot like its brother. One difference between the two boards is the size. The Quest Super cruiser is 44 inches while this board, the Quest Rorshack is only 34 inches. These 10 inches make a difference in the board’s style, though.
The Quest Rorshack is best used for short distances such as when commuting because the short board length means that riders have to use their legs more while riding. Another aspect that makes it great for commuting is the weight of the board; at 6 pounds, it is easy to carry around with you while you are out and about.
Now normally, shorter board lengths have other advantages such as better carving or better maneuverability. This is primarily where the Quest Rorshack falls short. It doesn’t display the nimbleness of other short longboards when riding and it is harder to carve and turn than expected. In all aspects of longboarding, the Quest Rorshack acts more like a penny board than a longboard. And there are definitely advantages to that!
Penny boards are great for commuting and going short distances quickly. In all of these, as stated before, the Quest Rorshack excels. And when you get tired of riding or have to go into class, you can just pick it up because it’s light weight means you can carry it for a while with no problem.
