Overall, best surfboard I’ve ever had!

My 6′-8″ Monsta chief is certainly my go to board for most days

curt-seymoreand as such a lot of my friends have asked about it in the water. Just like everyone says it catches waves easily and

at 57 years and 220 lbs helps me surf like a much younger man.

I’m in pretty decent shape for a guy my age and weight – nevertheless the well placed extra foam is a big help. This board is very loose and is tons of fun. I have experimented with various fins set ups and find I almost always prefer it as a thruster (3 fin).

  • For me it does get a little loose on the back end when the waves get well overhead with some punch.
  • That’s when I bring out my sleeked up round tail version which hold very nicely but of course isn’t as loose.
  • In smaller waves I much prefer the standard Monsta Chief.

When this one gets done, I will definitely order another. The only thing I will ask Todd about when I order a new one is if bringing in the the squash tail just a little at the very end would give just a little more hold in better surf or if that would change the ride up to much.

Honestly. This thing is pretty bulletproof so far. So unless something serious happens it won’t be necessary for to order new one in the near future.

Overall, best surfboard I’ve ever had!

Just wanted to send a

Thank You for one of the

BEST shortboards I’ve ever owned.

I have to admit that I was a little bit nervous about the board when I unpacked it due to how small and light it was – I thought “well, here’s another board that I’m going to sink on hard turns.”

Rode it last Tuesday during Hurricane Bertha (3′-4′ clean conditions) and

it was PERFECTLY balanced.

The board was amazing and super responsive on every inch of the wave – never caught a rail all day. I’m able to catch every wave I paddle for and it’s super fast right out of the gate allowing me to set up on the wave instead of trying to generate momentum like other shortboards. Another surfer even paddled over and asked me what board I was riding because

I was catching EVERYTHING coming in with little effort.

Can’t wait to try it with the quad set-up next surf.

Love the board and thanks again for the Jesus fish on the tail. I’m a happy customer!

Sincerely,

pretty sure this will turn out to be the best board I’ve ever owned

I bought a 7’0″ MonstaChief from you about two months ago.

Immediately my wave count went up!

The thing paddles so incredible, way better than my old 8-0.

There has been a definite “Learning curve” as it is so lite and — OH BABY — so loose.

First day I struggled as I spun out on every wave or just got squirly and ate it. Slowly I’ve been figuring it out and loving it more each time I ride it.

Today I finally got it in some good surf, my wife asked me how it was and

I proclaimed ” My board and I are one.”

I’ve surfed for almost 40 years and I’ve always noticed that if I struggle on a board the first day, they usually turn out to be magic.

I’m pretty sure this will turn out to be the best board I’ve ever owned.

I got a few cracks of the top today, and you are right–

It throws buckets of biblical proportions!

paddles into waves better than my longboard and makes me a much better surfer

I just wanted to send you my gratitude and praise for the MonstaChief. I surfed a mushy, waist high Texas day earlier this week.

For me, at 200lbs, this session would normally have been on a 9-0 longboard.

I bought the MonstaChief a little bigger than recommended because of our weak surf.

This board paddles into waves better than my longboard and makes me a much better surfer.

That day was one of those rare moments when you know that you have just scored a magic board.

I am really looking forward to riding this board in good conditions. You will likely have more orders from me in the near future for a couple of different sizes.

Thank you for being such a craftsman and for the unique design that fits me perfectly.

Thanks again,

Tim Carter

this thing just schooled me right through it

Hey there you two, Dan here with a testimonial to the new MonstaChief board your team made for me.

First trip out on a small day but glassy and fair shape, I got the new board into waves with ease,

the part in your video when you discuss the slightly pushed forward entry rocker is sooo awesome,

i could not believe how easy this board caught waves.

Being so used to surfing bigger longer boards i was worried just a hair about the step down to the 6’8″.

“no worries”

I found myself in the curl kind of chillin like i was on one my bigger boards and it occurred to me in that moment,” bro what are you doing you ordered this board to get a bit more aggressive on the waves”, and

with just enough curl left made a couple of sweet turns and a lip snap at the top,

something I’ve struggled with on my bigger boards

but this thing just schooled me right through it.

I can’t stop thinking about my next trips to beach because of that board.

Gotta say i was looking for the goto perfect Cali board and your team delivered. All this while not even being in my ideal surfing shape, the board paddles so well and even though at 3 1/8″ thick i could still duck dive it just fine.

I’m stoked to get this thing wired over the next few trips out, hope your business remains good because i can’t see myself ever buying a new surfboard from anyone else. By the way love the hat too.

Take care, I’ll check in again in a few weeks after riding it several more times, and also as a quad.

I might nickname this board my 7 iron.

Sorry for the long wind, had to be done. Todd & Charissa thank you

Did exactly what I needed. Get me into waves of consequence and minimize the risk of bodily harm

Spent 2 days at Blacks with overhead high waves & high tide.

Took a bit to get comfortable with the size of the board but once I figured it out–

ARE YOU freakin serious!!!!!???

Did exactly what I needed. Get me into waves of consequence and minimize the risk of bodily harm!!!!

Simply awesome.

I’m gonna make banana floats for everyone next time I see you just so we can celebrate!!!
Can’t replace your short boards but for a step-up its crazy good!!

I’ve never enjoyed surfing like I have on the Proctor boards!

chris-bruynzeel-monstachief-lip

Now that I’ve surfed the MonstaChief in varied conditions, different types of breaks, I’ve got a little more to say than “wow!”

I’ve never enjoyed surfing like I have on the proctor boards!

Intermediate surfer, 47yrs old, bad knees due to a lifetime of soccer, 210lbs.

I had some old boards that were okay, but I wanted to see what good board felt like–but–didn’t have the money to throw away “testing” one.  Met Todd, he let me borrow one–loved it…ordered my first Proctor–the Journey began…

Hence…the Chronicles of a Middle-Aged Pastor-Grom…

Sept 2011–

My 6’6′ x 21″ x 2 7/8″ Pavote got me back into surfing after a long haitis–

rediscovering the thrill of gliding along the pristine walls of water.

The board has incredible paddle power, fun carving lines, down the line speed–

connecting sections I would have never made in the past, and handled remarkably in 8′-10′ CStreet winter swells.

My skills and confidence and stoke surged.

Dec 2012–

After a good year of progressing, I was ready to step up my game (I hoped!)  Met with Todd & Charissa and voila, a new board was born.

My 6’4″ x 21″ x 2 7/8″ Monsta is amazing…

at some of the more technical local breaks, this board has helped me navigate the steeper drops and pull off quicker and harder snaps.

This board makes me feel like I can pull off harder turns in more critical conditions–that previously intimidated me.  The stoke grew!

June 2013–

With the weaker summer swells, I was looking for a board that would give me the paddle power of my Pavote yet the responsiveness of my Monsta.

Todd let me borrow one of his new MonstaChiefs for a few weeks.  Loved it–bought it.

My 6’4″ x 21 1/2″ x 3 1/8″ is pure joy!

I’ve surfed Oceanside, Salt Creek, HB, Secos, Strand, Shores, CStreet, Faria–from 2ft to 8ft–and

this board truly is the one-board-quiver.

The board fits each of the locations and gives me all the paddle power, speed, quick responsiveness, great carves, etc that I could ever hope for.

In crowds, this board helps me find waves even amongst the lightweight, energetic groms.
In steep takeoffs where simple mistakes lose long & fast & fun rides, this board provides a stable takeoff and can immediately fly.
In sloppy conditions, it has the speed & power to keep in the wave and fight through the chop.
When getting too excited & outrunning a section, it delivers speed-holding, rail-carving turns to get back to the wave and enjoy the re-form.

The coolest thing–I’m getting better slowly but surely.  Floaters, barrels, snaps off the lip, long carves…backside…bigger waves.  Wow!

Obviously, I could go on…

Thanks Todd & Charissa for such a fun return to the Journey…the boards are great–but you all there at the factory are better!

your pal, Chris
