MONSTACHIEF step-up/gun:

 

Are you a large human that wants to unleash buckets of biblical proportions in pumping well overhead conditions? A goliath who wants to step inside a mansized cave of folkloric dimensions. Well, then get some foam under ya and git out there and live. Leviathan dimensions for the giants of the tribe doing battle on a larger than life scale.

The uniqely refined rocker and distinct concaves of the MonstaChief allows it to catch everything super easy (other people in the lineup actually get a bit disgusted with how many waves people are able to catch on this board), and the heavy concave under the front foot combined with a flatter area in the rocker between the feet provides a one of a kind performance that allows for incredible speed off the front foot, but with powerful turns that hold through when you jam on the tail to rail it through. I have been doing a version of this board with a slightly more pulled in tail actually lately quite a lot from people requesting just that….and the feedback is very good for quicker turning. I’m pretty much sticking to the wider tails for surfers wanting plenty of planing area mostly at mushier waves spots.

The MonstaFish:

“Gut that fish” – the all new modern retroactive Quad Fang uses progressive rocker & deep heavy concaves for a board that gets up on plane, and holds a rail through full-speed carves like none before it. This one comes in at a gargantuan yet fetching 6’6″ x 23 1/2″ x 3 3/8″ 60.5L MonstaFish. I’ve literally gutted the belly of the beast so she has more efficient water flow, making her speedy as all get out with no lack of fast-twitch muscle fiber rail response. Go on, and manhandle the baby. Other features include 80s style flat deck to pack on the liters combined with sloped, downrails and hard edges to knife your corners at zip-stitch top velocity. Nose features a subtle beaky buzzard.

This board combines a modernized, sleeked up retro fish outline with a progressive rocker and one-of-a-kind freaky hull contours. Glide or gouge, float or carve, crouch low with five on the nose, or stand tall and arch the back.

Popular Rocker Options
even single with inset doubles to slight vee off the back fin. a predictable drivey feel that caters to a front footed approach;
deep single to super deep single with inset double bonzeresque concaves through the fins, with single concave running off the tail block; “exhaust pipe”. Ideal for small scale to full throttle waves; incredible back foot control through on-rail full-speed cutties.
For flatter faced slopier waves that tend to lack power. A flatter, drivier rocker also featuring Todd’s new jetstream/ hydrofoilized hull concept. A favorite for surfer’s wanting a lot of smooth speed and lateral lift and exceptional hold through turns from their board. I use a flat deck with down rails in this model to put maximum foam and liters into the board while still keeping the rails sensitive and able to knife into the wave face, keeping them nice and responsive. A very unique, futuristic new design of Todd’s that is transforming so many surfer’s experience in the water. Favors the wide squashtail for maximum lift in waves that lack energy.

Tubes, tubes and more tubes. Barrels and buckets and buckets of barrels. In Hawaii, in Mexico, in Australia where they’ve all gone feral. Shacks at dawn and dusk, even under moonlight and threat of the musky musk and the tusky tusk. Barrels for beebops and toddlers and grownups. We’ll navigate the future with religious zeal, riding holy rollers and watery chariots following on @keepittropical ‘s heels 6'1" x 19" x 2 9/16" 31L #holyrollersurfboard

I’ve always admired the surfers that go to the places where everybody else isn’t. Watching the swell charts and the winds and tides, getting intel from the boots on the sand underground expats. Waiting till the masses flock to the next tour stop to pull the trigger on going to an off season under the radar swell that’s the farthest away from the melee. @petemendia seems to have always had a certain penchant for watching the wheels go round and round, no longer riding on the merry go round. People think he’s crazy doing what he’s doing (that was the Beetles btw) …but when you find empty peaks that are guttering out and running down the trench for tubes longer and deeper and emptier than a world that’s got it’s focus diverted away from the mystique of adventure basqued in solitude…that’s where you’ll find the yeti. Here he rides a 7’8” x 19 1/4” x 2 7/8” #Pipecleanersurfboard with orange air spray, black racy rails, glassed strong, with plenty of paddle power, carbon for strength, shallow single to double concaves to vee, and a quad to get an extra gear of speed to roll right through three foam balls, eight speed bumps and four chandeliers on the way to an exit 100 yards from where you pulled in.

Backhand carve in Da Islands by @petemendia 
6’3” x 19 1/4” x 2 11/16” 32.5L #Flyinlionsurfboard roundtail slight step-up in poly construction. This model is currently our most popular high performance step-up. It threads barrels, yet does in the pocket like a shortboard. Glide in paddle so you get in early. It has heavy concaves through the fins that provide for a clampy grip off the bottom that holds and drives into the lip with maximum drive. It’s snappy with controlled release through carves too. So if your looking for which step-up out of all my different shapes this winter this is the one for that overhead+ ripping range.
