valenciasteve I’m not an important person in the surfing world. Just a normal surfer/PE teacher. I have two boards from Mr. Proctor. Unreal is the only way to describe how much they helpedme back in the water. Thank you so much.

jay7seas My Monsta has 10lb of sandy brown wax, multiple buckles in the nose, and yellow as can be and it is by far still the best board that i have. Todd’s a mad genius! Gracias @proctor_surfboards

Todd Proctor’s boards are by far the best boards I have ever stepped foot on

Let me start off by saying that Todd Proctor’s boards are by far the best boards I have ever stepped foot on. I feel that my words were a little misconstrued during this interview and a lot of the finer details were left out. So with that said let me explain what I meant by, “No boards are magic.” When someone uses the term “MAGIC” for a surfboard it usually means that the board that they are riding is SUPERIOR to anything they have been riding in their current quiver. There are boards that work good, really good, and are just too good to be put into words which in this case majority of people like to use the word MAGIC!

In my case, each and every surfboard I receive from Todd can easily or potentially be a MAGIC (or in other words amazing, superior, best board) board in my quiver. But! A lot of this MAGIC comes from within. Being healthy mentally, physically and having a good mindset can make all the difference in making that really good board into a MAGIC (or superior, amazing, or best board) in your quiver. Have you ever had a board that you thought was MAGIC, and then one day its not working like MAGIC anymore? Well that X-FACTOR is most likely you! Whether its your mindset, the waves, your physical health or whatever…the surfboard never changed and it is still a really good board, superior board, amazing board (or in other WORDS….***drum roll***….MAGIC). It is your mindset and your physical ability to make that board work the way you want it to.

The surfboards that Todd creates are all potentially MAGIC (or superior, amazing, favorite) boards but I feel that without a good mindset and a healthy body you are limiting yourself to tap into the full capabilities and performance (or MAGIC whichever word you may prefer) of any board for that matter. So with that said every board I receive from Todd is by far the best boards I have ever ridden, looked at, or placed my human feet on. If you are looking for surfboards that contain MAGICAL attributes and the potential to take your surfing to another level PROCTORS are where its at.

P.S. Dont worry if you break your MAGIC proctor, Todd can duplicate MAGIC boards better then any other shaper out there.

beginning the journey

i’ve been at witch’s rock for a a few days.. stayed an extra week… b/c its awesome.

waves are amazing.. instructors are really cool… i was walking out with my board… some locals came up and asked… ” is that a custom board… we’ve seen these a few times.. what’s the name?” so i explain… they asked about logo.. i explained… they laughed.. saying “that’s cool bro”.

they were looking at both of our boards real close.. they totally understood to design etc… very smart guys..

so we’re having a blast with the boards.

thanks so much… boards are crazy… i may get a long board from you some day…

daniel is killing it. going down the line now…

It’s funny.. When Daniel paddles for a wave some adults are faster than him.. But once he pops up.. Wooosh, he races past them.. Lol.

The monster is good in all waves.. It’s been small the last couple days.. It he’s still popping up just fine.

I was having trouble with my pop up in LA… Instructor fixed it on the first day.. He had me pop up on the sand to check me out.. Soon as I popped up, he says “boom, there it is, I found your problem”. He points at my feet, I look down down, my front foot, my right foot, was landing to the right of the stringer. He made me pop up 6-7 more times.. Made me get it right before he even took me out. He worked with me out there fixing other problems.. I’ve been popping up fine ever since. He’s awesome. Pako, is his name.

Glad you love the pics!! And again, thank you guys so much!!

drives off the bottom so fast and comes off the top so smooth

Todd, I love the Monsta!

It drives off the bottom so fast and comes off the top so smooth.

I really like the way the board helps generate and keep speed, I never feel like I am bogging down.

It has definitely helped me progress and improve my surfing

(landed a pretty nice air the other day, but only fell cause I was so surprised at how it easy it boosted).

I am so stoked on the way this board surfs, and glad my buddy Josh recommended you.

I look forward to getting more boards from you in the future.

Thanks,

The rails have amazing hold and the V2 rocker gives it an aggressive feeling while still being forgiving

Hey Charissa and Todd,

Just wanted to follow up and let you know I finally got to get a few days of good surfing in on the new Monsta.

Typically it takes me a few sessions to dial in a board at different spots, but I can honestly say I have not had a bad/weird experience on this thing yet. I have surfed it all over Oxnard and Ventura the last few days, in different conditions, every time it performs.

It worked in smaller mushier point waves, as well as hollower overhead beach break very well.

The rails have amazing hold and the V2 rocker gives it an aggressive feeling while still being forgiving

It is already proving to be very versatile and is a better replacement to the old beat up board in my quiver that I loved. This model was a perfect suggestion and I am glad you were able to take the time and set it up in the shaping room with me.

Of course it wont work in everything…

so the great thing is once the surf gets really solid, I have my super typhoon ready to go, which is another great board that has proved itself at home and in Bali in good waves.

Both boards have amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. It might be a while until I need another one, but I know where I will be going to order it and look forward to adding another Proctor to my quiver in the future. Thanks again for everything!
