Thanks for helping me elevate my surfing
Todd & Charissa,
Love the boards! Have been cutting up the waves on both.
The MonstaChief is way more maneuverable than my C6.
Pulled off a nice floater yesterday and released the tail off the lip on my first wave.
Thanks for helping me elevate my surfing!!!!!!

I knew it was the board and not me that saved what I thought was a going to be a major fail
Picked-up the 6’4″ MonstaChief from Hawaiian South Shore and got to surf it in 1-2+ ft. (Hawaiian scale) at Threes Waikiki yesterday.
The board catches waves so easily and I caught a ton of waves.
I rode it with the honeycomb AMT Futures fins and
the board had heaps of drive and speed.
What surprised me the most was how quickly the board recovered in a tail-slide (unintentional) cutback.
On that cutback, I thought I dug the inside rail and was about to backflop and waste the wave,
but, wow, the next thing I knew,
I was banking off the foam and shooting back down the line
In that instance, I knew it was the board and not me that saved what I thought was a going to be a major fail.
Todd really is a shaper extraordinaire,
please send him my regards.

It’s a great feeling to surf with confidence
Just wanted to say how stoked I was
out in Maui this time around
It’s a great feeling to surf with confidence in the super bad ass equipment under your feet.
I think I surfed better on this trip than I ever have.

best south shore barrel of his life
Just talked to Gerran -
he was blowing up about the sick south shore pits he caught this morning (including the “best south shore barrel of his life”) and raving like a wild man about the super typhoon!
I should have recorded him – it was pure stoke – raving about how well it fit in the pocket and how deep he was getting and pumping and making impossibles!
And we went on with the Monsta and the Typhoon covering all conditions he surfs – a perfect complement.
Pllease pass along the giddy buzz — another surfer loving the journey!

hands down the best board I’ve ever ridden
The Monsta I got for this summer
is hands down the best board I’ve ever ridden.
I haven’t had so much fun riding small waves in years.

3 years (?) old and going strong. Not a single ding. Amazing.
It’s 3 years (?) old and going strong.
Not a single ding. Amazing.
I should go a little smaller but hard to beat the paddling and drive in weak summer surf. It has been my go-to small wave board for so long that my longboard is resigned to loner duty.
Your proxy gear is legit – nothing else like it. Only thing I’d trade it for is a carbon footsie proxy
BTW – Dave Kelly is SOOOO stoked on his CF Apache Ghost he can’t stop talking about it — classic.
MAHALO and happy weekend!

this board IS MY MAGIC BOARD!
Surfed my Rascal 2 couple of times
and found this board is FAST.
I was always skeptical about buying boards other than our local shapers here in Hawaii.
I always thought how different could a surfboard be with just so many ways to shape it.
Well just to let you guys know
this board IS MY MAGIC BOARD!
Thank you. Aloha Eddie, Mililani, Hawaii

thanks for the killer Monsta quiver
I just wanted to write and say thanks for the killer Monsta quiver.
I have been surfing daily since I returned to San Diego
and just came home from a week long North Shore trip
where I paddled out the Monsta Step-up into 6 – 8 foot Hale’iwa.
Hope all is well and I will talk to you soon.
