Performance Longboard

The performance longboard features additional rocker, sleeker outline, and more tapered responsive rails. The bottom utilizes a concave in the nose for increased lift in noseriding, which transitions to a double concave through the mid-section of the board, then to a concave vee or “spiral vee” through the fins and last 1/3 of the board.

Nobody wants to ride a longboard that feels like it’s pushing water.

So, I’ve kept this design with a bit of that traditional trim speed concept alive and kicking…enabling you to set it on rail and glide and walk the nose. This is done primarily with what’s called a three stage rocker, or bottom curve profile which has a pretty low entry with just enough curve up front to make the late take-offs on bigger and hollower days, and the ability  to make a nice steep redirecting bottom turn…..smooth like butter…not margarin.

The mid-section has a flatter run through it…this is where the flow and trim speed come from.

Finally the last third of the board I have a pretty sweeping crisp and loose tail rocker to keep her nice and responsive. The bottom contours consist of a good amount of nose concave the front 36” for grip and lift during tip-time. The midsection splits to a double concave or tri-plane hull configuration that flows into a pronounced spiral vee apexing at the fin cluster…this let’s her lay over rail-to-rail real nice…drivey like, but not slippy…nice and positive redirectional flow that gains speed out of turns…that’s the beauty of concaves.

I put a subtle chime or bevel out where the concaves hit the rail…this keeps the board from feeling sticky and let’s the water release out of the concaves and jump off the rails keeping the board nice and forgiving out of turns.

This board blends a bit of the old world with the new. A lot of times performance longboards lose all their performance because they have way too much rocker/ bottom curve to make them practical….unless your only surfing bowly beachbreak…and c’mon …really…? Larry Ugale demonstrates.

The mid-section has a flatter run through it…this is where the flow and trim speed come from.

This board is a favorite among veteran traditionalists, pros and beginners alike for it’s incredible performance and versatility; The staple of my longboard line.

Stoked surfer reports: this just in >> “I want to thank you and Todd.
My only regret is that I didn't come to you two decades ago.

Over the last two decades, I have spent nearly 10,000 on surfboards. with 5 custom shaped during that time. 
I have had no progression in my surfing since the late 90's when my desk jobs caused me to "outgrow" my stewart surfboard.
With my MonstaChief, I finally feel like I have been surfing for 30 years. 
I have tons of speed, and the board turns on a dime. Within 30 days, I have went from barely making drops and never having enough speed to make a section on my old board, to round house wraparounds, and my first attempt at an Air. 
Last week, I actually had kids at barbwires (just north of Upper Trestles) applauding my surfing. 
The same day, a surfer in his 60's commented "I can't believe how fast you were going, I thought there was no way you were going to make that section"

The only issues I have is that I am not used to the acceleration or the turning radius. My first real wave after getting the board, I went to do a bottom turn and put as much effort as I used to do on the 5"11 board I was previously riding. Instead of the long drawn out bottom turn, the board literally immediately turned 90 degrees, and I was promptly thrown off the side board. I still have a problem with the acceleration, I will occasionally drop in, start the bottom turn, the board shoots forward and I am thrown off the back.
None of these are issues with the board. They are all due to the decades I have been trying to make due on inferior board designs. 

This board has stopped me from quitting surfing.  This was my last shot. If I was still struggling to surf after getting this board, I was literally going to quit surfing. 
I had been blaming my boards, and knew that this board was going to be made exactly they way it should, and if it didn't work, it was not the board that was the problem.

Again, thank you.”
