Nailed this shot in the new Transworld surf riding my 6’3 Lacerator.
That board is like riding a magic carpet. Jarrah

magic boards by Proctor Surfboards
Just surfed over here down at bird rock in Torquay.
New boards work insane. I rode the g4e + with more rocker and it was working really good.
Really solid drive turns and very responsive.
The weight on them are perfect and feel so whippy and smooth.
I can’t even imagine how good they will work once my ankle is better and I get them in some fun surf. Yew

The ghost is fast, freaky fast. That was the first thing I noticed about it. I also noticed how smooth it turns from rail to rail.
I’ve ridden a couple of these shapes and I really enjoy how effortlessly you can surf them.
You don’t need to pump, chop, hop, or flail to generate speed.
The shape seems to do all the work for you,
as if its trying to help you create a smoother style.
I’ve noticed a big change in the way I surf since riding The Ghost. Todd noticed it too when we were in Peru.
It’s helped me link my turns into one continuous motion
without the wishy-washy pumps and hops in between maneuvers.
The width runs a little higher towards the nose, sort of similar to Da Monsta but yet has a standard shortboard size.
That really helps me with two things: when doing airs or throwtails and my weight is on my front foot, and second,
I can take this board out in waves knee high to double head-high.
It rides responsive like Da Monsta but feels more reliable in large surf because there is more board under your feet.
Needless to say, I’ll continue ordering Ghosts because I love em’ and I know what I’m going to get every time.
Todd, keep on pumping these puppies out cause’ I can’t get enough!
I’m a fan of the short and stubby boards that are dominating the line up these days, but some of them are too stubby, and get squirrely in anything more than small, mushy surf. Enter Proctor’s Monsta v.2. It’s an awesome mix of a shortboard that can coast through summer mushburgers, but will also let you unleash high-performance turns in the pocket when the surf picks up or gets steeper. On their site (proctorsurf.com/Surf-Boards/Monsta) there are cool descriptions of three different rockers Proctor uses for this board, depending on what the surf is like in your area. It’s meant to be ridden 3-4 inches smaller than your normal shortboard, and 1/2” wider. And actually, if your go-to blade is a chippy board that’s 18 1/4” x 2 1/4”, the Monsta just might change what you think of as your “normal” shortboard.

Todd Proctor…whatup….dude, that board is magical. It’s one of my favorite boards I’ve got definitely.
That thing’s riding so good, I’m so pumped on it.
Yea, I was stoked I got that shot on ESM and the one on Surfline…
the waves were soooo good here for a couple days.
Hope all is well. Give me a ring back whenever you get a chance.
Ever since I got this board, it just feels sick….
and I don’t even really know why….but for some reason, I tried these other little boards
and my buddy who I always surf with said to me,
“Peter, what are you doing? Get back on the Proctor.
You surf the best on the Proctor.”

You know the epoxy Carbon Rail Titanium board, whatever it is you call this thing…. I gotta tell you a crazy thing about this board. I took it into some super heavy barrels right after I got it where I thought I had broken it for sure a few times, anyway… it did get a subtle crease on the bottom in the middle, but not out to the rail, just inside.
But I’ve been riding it all the time still for the last two months and it hasn’t affected the way it rides at all. It still works insane…. it hasn’t affected the flex or anything. Still real springy and lively. But I’m trippin’ because I’ve never ever had a board that gets creased right down the middle where it ends up that the board’s not just totally ruined.
How ever you set up the stringers and the carbon or whatever you do on the rails and how this thing is made it has kept the board from snapping and the buckle hasn’t gotten any worse. I haven’t even tried to fix it. I’ve just been riding it as it is.
People have even been coming up to me thinking I don’t know about it and telling me “wow man, did you see your board is buckled?” and I tell em “yea, I know, it doesn’t matter, it still rides great, you can’t even tell.”
So I thought that was pretty crazy and wanted to let you know.
That board is so good! That is the best board ever.
It works amazing….got a couple waves on it today
And boy oh boy, it is the board.
Best board I think I have ever had. Don’t lose that file.
5’11.75″ x 18 3/8″ x 2 5/16″ rounded squash tail Super-Typhoon
Yo Todd, just wanted to say thanks for the board! That Super-Typhoon is such a sweet board!
Everything you could want a shortboard to do and more.
Took it down to Barra de la Cruz last month and the board went absolutely mental.
From the dredging barrel take off,
to the big steep open walls where I was
gouging into some of the biggest, hardest
and fastest turns I’ve ever made.
Cannot wait to get that board into the water over in Nias later this summer.
Stoked out of my mind. Keep that one on file for me…it’s a keeper for sure.
