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 killed it over there on the El Pavote
My new board was awesome in Namotu.
Have a look at the attached photo!! Hehehe. I’m still getting used to it though but
the paddle factor is just what I expected compared to my El Pavote, so it’s perfect.

Fyi, everyone commented/asked me about my boards. Everyone asked who the shaper was and commented on the outline and materials.

Never thought that I’d be surfing better at 46 than I ever have before
Hi Todd & Charissa,
I have tell you how much I love my Monsta. I’ve had it for a month and have been getting used to it in head-high+ waves.
That board absolutely flies, is super maneuverable,
loves being in the steep, fast waves.
My surfing abilities are going to take some time catching up to this board.
Never thought that I’d be surfing better at 46 than I ever have before (despite being heavy & bad knees!).
Starting with the Pavote you made for me about a year and half ago, and now with this Monsta, my love for surfing, enjoyment of it, and ability to surf bigger, tougher waves have increased tremendously!
Thanks for all your help, the fun times talking to you, the patience you show explaining & re-explaining how the shapes/fins/rails/etc work!
…huge fan of the Proctors & Proctor Surfboards
…enjoying the journey!

Thanks Todd for making me another AMAZING board
Thanks Todd for making me another AMAZING board, my Pipsqueak was working really good today.
Surfed it in 3-4′+ waves that were offshore, glassy, onshore, slopey and some fast grinders and it exceled in all those conditions.
It got into the waves real easy, made drops on steeper waves easy, goes fast, turns really fast and responsive and cracks the lip real good!!!! So stoked!!!
Chris surfed with me on his new MonstaChief and he was surfing really good on his new board too!! Full on Proctor Party, Yeeeew!
Thanks again and also to Charissa for all the exceptional customer service, you both Rock!!!!!!!

at the reef I felt like I was walking on water
I am writing to review THE APACHE. As a guy with 18 years in the water, lately, I have been on the search for boards that challenge my sessions and style. Don’t get me wrong but, a good shorty definitely has its time and place in space.
The Apache is just as it spells itself out to be…a compact vessel that can take off and/or land anywhere that the pilot decides at a moments notice.
So far I have surfed it in clean overhead point break surf, very large reef surf and my fave chest high shred baskets. In the point stuff the board allowed me the speed to pick and choose what corners I wanted to bank off of, at the reef I felt like I was walking on water and the chest high beach stuff I was able to hack it up and keep up with the groms.

I ordered my board with the concave deck for a unique feel. It takes a lot of the foam out of the deck, which is why Todd suggested to order it at least 1/4” thicker than normal. If you are a beginner or are looking for paddling power I would not suggest the concave deck. For those daring to try the concave deck I think it feels really different. It puts you closer to the water and has a cradling effect under your feet. The back foot area almost feels like two gas pedals and are very sensitive. Also, the mid rail areas really give you something to hold onto in critical areas. I ordered mine with quad futures only. I would suggest ordering with a 5 fin option for experimentation purposes.
Thanks Todd and Charissa for your stellar work!
I think this is my magic board finally.
Went yesterday to Huntingtons in 3-4 foot waves.
Board is awesome.
I think this is my magic board finally.
It feels good and looks good.

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.

I always think of the Proctor team and how truly amazing the boards are
Charissa, well your aim is dead on cuz you have blessed me tremendously and God truly did some amazing work pairing the two of you together, no doubt!
I haven’t surfed in two months due to schedule, family and then hurt shoulder but forced my self out this weekend. I surfed 2 x’s at Pitas Point and I am pretty sure that I caught some of the best and longest waves of my life.
I rode my Monsta both times
and felt that I surfed my best ever
and never fell or stuttered on my 100+ yard waves.
Getting to my feet wasn’t always pretty since my arms are so out of paddle shape but once up and going
the board was jamming and fluid.
The Monsta skate has kept me sane when I am out of the water that long and keeps my legs in shape as well as lets me go through the smooth carving motion.
My legs were so strong on those super long waves with lots of turns and floaters!!
I know you have probably got too much feedback from me by now but just know that
after every session I always think of the Proctor team and how truly amazing the boards are as well what great people you are!!
I have never thought about boards or the shapers in the past after having great sessions.

It feels like a skateboard on the water
The Rascal II- OMG !!!!
He was right. The Board is amazing. The extra curve in the NOSE ROCKER WOW !
It allows the board to glide and kills those rails in any pockets.
The CONCAVE DECK make it so easy to paddle, pop and maneuver.
Tight turns, crazy cut backs, quick respond .
It feels like a skateboard on the water.
Having the channels on this board allows you to keep control and at the same time give you that quick reaction. No matter the wave conditions.
Trust me, come to visit New York during the winter. You will get my point.
My man Todd……. (2) things for you.
1. Keep working your Magic
2. Keep your phone close to you. I’ll be calling soon . Your Magic is addicting !
Aloha from your New Yorkers Patricia and Rafael !!
Happy Thanksgiving from Pauli and Rafael.
Here is the first picture taken after Hurricane Sandy.
Sorry it took so long.
Rafael loves the board. He’s already thinking about upgrading perhaps this summer.
Have wonderful holidays!
