Accelerator

This board is specifically designed to make small wave performance surfing easy. You get fast-driving speed bursts off the  front foot and hair-trigger, tail whipping warp-arcs off the back foot. A wider nose outline and low entry rocker get this board into waves quicker and blast it down the line faster. A bendy tail rocker sweeps off the back fin making it quick and responsive in tight rail-arcing hook-turns. An even single concave runs through the midsection of the board making for a “wide open sweet spot” i.e. the board wants to go even if you don’t have your feet right in the perfect spot every time.

Right at the fins the rocker ‘drops out’ and the single concave goes deep….this creates what feels like an engine under your back foot. The deep concave forms an air pocket as well as a straighter path to compress the water through the extreme rocker of the tail….this air pocket acts like a gas pedal or “accelerator”…push back on the tail and it rockets through turns like a piece of ice on wax paper.

Here’s the dimension I suggest based off your normal “good waves” shortboard: ride this board one inch shorter, 1/4″ wider in the middle, 1/2″ wider in the nose, and 1/8” wider in the tail. Go with the same thickness just with a fuller, boxy rail. This creates a flatter deck which gives the board a springier flex pattern….key for that extra little thwang in small waves.

Oh yea…as a bonus, it also goes looneybinsmental in everything up to slightly overhead.

Accelerator L.E.

Basically the same overall design as the original Accelerator, but with all the entry rocker dropped super low. This works surprisingly well as the board gains a whole new easy trim speed and glide between maneuvers. This is something kind of lost in surfing right now, and I’ve noticed with all the high flying super rad maneuvers that there is some weird wide stance wiggling going on that in my opinion is looks ugly. ….so, without taking the freakish fins flying maneuvers out of the equation, but adding a smooth stylish flow of speed to connect them, I’ve dropped the entry down, left plenty of rocker in the tail….and come up with a design that let’s you just stand there on the tail between maneuvers….without wiggling or wide-stancing it….and let the speed flow roll while you set-up to mega blast the next vert ramp that comes your way.  This board is best in your average waist to shoulder high, slopey and less than favorable conditions, but also goes mental in good waves too.

Skill level: intermediate to advanced

Type of waves: primarily designed for knee high to shoulder and weak, but it goes great in everything up to slightly overhead.

There’s a tangible sacredness to every board when you pour all you got into being a blessing. And we are super stoked on this mellow stylemaster’s precision ripping. @jonahcarter_ is one of San Clemente’s finest and rides the new #Maximumvelocitysurfboard in 5’8” x 18 5/8” x 2 1/4” 25L dims. This is my latest high performance design, and could be my best work of 28 years along with the #Falcon2surfboard and #Falcon3surfboard that have come to life this year. I’ll be doing an “In the shaping room” board breakdown on all three new models coming soon. Stay tuned here and at proctorsurf.com

This twin fin right here, the one on the left, has a lot of people talking. This latest variant of the performance twin fin model is bringing new, flourishing, joy/filled life and health and glide and speed and free-ness with grip and buckets of glory galore…it’s called the #Twinstitchsurfboard and it uses the bottom line and rocker of the #Zipstitchsurfboard combined with the outline and rails of the #Twinturbinesurfboard / a wider nose, narrower tailed, single-wing swallow with a slot channel through the tail for extra traction. @petemendia tells me, “I feel like I’m losing my mind on this thing!”

Stoked surfer reports: this just in >> “HEAD HIGH COTTONS THIS MORNING FIRST LIGHT … SO GLASSY AND CLEAN … THIS NUGGET IS SOME SUGARY SWEET COTTON POINT CANDY!
Put Machado quad set on and everything worked amazing. So good I didn’t swap any of the other fins I brought down to the point in a backpack (next time I play around more with different setups).
LOVE LOVE LOVE. FAST BUT NOT SKIPPY, SMOOTH AND SOFT BUTTERY FEEL IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS, AND PLENTY OF DIG ON TAP FOR SOME BUTT WIGGLING DOWN THE LINE.
PADDLING? FAGHIDABOWDID. YOUR 10 FOOT MINI MEGA MUCHO MACHO UBER MAGIC DOESN’T STAND A CHANCE. SHE SITS JUST PERFECT UNDER ME AND MY BIG CHEST / SHOULDERS.
 
The tail release and flow through turns was perfect and rather surprising for how wide she is. This baby got back. Twerkin’ on some Summertime peaks!
 
THANKS SO MUCH!!”

Aloha Todd!
Your call yesterday blessed me bro! I caught a really nice one. Dropped in steep in warrior position, aggressive down the line, cut back line super nice with my backhand on the face of the wave, off the lip on the white water 💦 
I am super stoked on the tail, response, glide through turns. I feel the board you made has made me better. Diggin the channels too! Super cool. So glad I brought it over here to Kauai. 

Stoked on your Malibu session too with your bud! Best times are together!

We are driving to Hanalei today. Hoping for a cool church tonight! Wanna worship The King 👑 with the Hawaiians!

Mahalo for the board! I really enjoy riding it! - Mike from San Diego 185-190lb/6’0”/52

Who is this gnarly ripper on a Proctor?? 
6’0” #Falcon3surfboard in a stealthy billion dollar new construction material? 
Obtained from aliens?
Being used by the military? 
Will someone tell me what’s going on!! 
Could this change the power that the military industrial complex wields to run the world?…or should we just keep it a secret for only our friends to enjoy? …After all, living in the hood in Oxnard with real people blows away living in a massive compound in New Zealand surrounded by neurotics.
