Hi Todd, Charissa,
Got the board… finally. Took it straight to the Ashram.
Pictures taken of all the Swamis gathered around it in total appreciation, screaming, whooping and gazing in admiration.
Even the kids from the village nearby came to see it. Here are seven initial pictures. By the way, it looks like they will be contacting you for some custom boards too. I asked them to simply drop my name ) ) more pictures to follow….
… and here are some more. The last few are of Swami Narasinga (Jack Hebner) who was kind enough to “bless” the board and share a moment in a picture with me. “When are we taking this to the water Mahesh?” “Maybe Thursday?” “Right, let’s go out together.”… He turns 67 in August!
So.. .that’s that. A dream come true. A splendid thing of beauty comes down from the sands of Ventura to be with me in a village in Mulky, Mangalore.
Hope to ever be the nomad travelling the coasts.
Mahalo guys, keep in touch
You are the man!
I finally took out the 9’8″ “Tiger in the Tail” you made for me today.
I am sorry but yes, it has taken long to get into the water because I missed the last season (with that board) by a day and had shelved surfing activities afterwards for various reasons.
The board is simply amazing! It’s as if it has been tailor made for me and sort of fits like a glove!
I don’t know what you’ve done,
but it carried my 260 pounds on the very first wave
after nine months of no surfing without a single wobble.
I did catch two waves after that but only body surfed them. Same story. In fact, it’s hard to fall off that board.
Dhruva from Mantra Surf Club asked me if he could try it and I let him have it for “ten minutes”. He hung five on the very first wave (a puny 2 footer). He also did a pirouette on the board on a later wave.
I’m sorry I dont have photographs for your website because I discovered the batteries were dead after I hit the beach. But will get some next time.
I don’t think I will be using any other board ever. I’ve found my magic board. …
and like I told Charissa, maybe a Monstachief at some point.
Keep it alive, and happiness to you and yours,

Hi Charissa and Todd,
I surfed all weekend and the
board was simply unreal.
I had two really great surf sessions.
The proxy epoxy G4e just feels so good
when I paddle and simply
incredible when riding.
I changed up the tri fins and quads set up and just amazing.
I’m selling two of my old boards, so I can’t to wait to get Lil Rascal II for summer. I have the order form that Todd wrote out for me. I’ll probably do this sometime soon.
You two are truly a Blessing and happy to have met you both!!
Thank you Jesus!! I’ll be keeping in touch.

Dear Charissa and Todd,
WOW! I just got Brandon’s board today from Fedex. I pick him up at midnight tonight at the Airport. I’m sorry, I couldnt resist opening the box, I justified it by telling myself that I had to check it for shipment damages from the deliver, (of course there were none, but I knew this ) and I must say I was blown away by the design! Todd did a great job with the paint job! At least he’ll be camoflauged from all the Tiger Sharks on the North Shore now.
Y’all continue to impress. Thanks for your kind words and prayers. Hopefully when I return I’ll see Proctor surfboards making their way into local shops around the island. I have a feeling that these two boards will generate some more business from the island for y’all.
Tomorrow when we hit the surf we’ll be sure to take a picture to send yall of the terrible twosome with the sickest boards on the island!

Just wanted to say that
the board is perfect!
Rode it at C-street
the day I picked it up
and it flew down the line.
Thanks Todd for making me the one board I needed in my quiver.
I am already thinking about ordering another one from you guys this summer that my girlfriends sister can take back to Norway for me.
Thanks again for the perfect board.
Mr Tom is really happy. Aloha.

I just love this board!
Over the last four years, it has been on every kind of wave
between Rincon and “C” Street and even finds the time
to teach my kids at Mondos….
it will be a sad day when Todd say’s it’s not worth fixing anymore.

Hello Todd,Charissa,and Katie
Just wanted say how great it was to see you at Sacred Craft. You guys had a sweet booth! Hope it was a success!
Also wanted to
thank everyone for the personal attention paid to making my new board.
I surfed Tuesday and Wednesday morning in shifty, offshore Hueneme barrels, and the board is amazing!
It’s light, loose, and responsive.
I am looking forward to ordering
the big brother soon!
See you all soon

The boards that you guys made were better then expected.
The construction of them both are flawless and I couldn’t be happier with them.
I haven’t ridden the g4-c board yet but
I have ridden the greased pig 2 and that thing is sick.
Just wanted to thank todd with his help on that one and look forward to ordering more.
The wait was well worth it – so stoked.
Thanks to everyone involved hope all is well take care.

Thought you would like to know that I absolutely love my Proctor board, and just wanted to take a second out of my day to thank you and Todd for it.
It’s such a faithful board, and I have been having so much fun on it lately.
It’s made perfectly to suit my needs and I just want you to know how much I appreciate it.
If you have a second, check out my blog and you can see how I have been riding–I posted a video!!!!
