For those of you who like the Monsta, this is a high performance shortboard counterpart to that design. I’ve kept the rocker and bottom contours the same as that of the Monsta….so same speed, same positive flow…The outline, rail volume and deck foil is more “shortboardy, but with the wide point moved slightly forward & a bit fuller nose outline than a standard “needled out” perfect waves shortboard. The rails are less full than that of the Monsta; more pulled down, but boxy in shape.
 
You ride this board 1 – 2 inches shorter, about a 1/4 inch wider, & the same thickness as your “shortboard for perfect waves”.
A great all-around high performance shortboard that doesn’t require perfect waves to feel perfect under your feet.
  • FIN CONFIGURATION: thruster or five fin option to ride as tri or quad
  • WAVE PREFERENCES: A great all-around high performance shortboard that doesn’t require perfect waves to feel perfect under your feet
  • AVAILABLE TAIL CONFIGURATIONS: wide rounded squash, wide hip-squash, swallowtail, round/thumbtail
  • RECOMMENDED RIDER TYPES: Intermediate to advanced

A Word from the shaper:

Here’s my friend Andrew, blasting the lip on his backhand. As a grom, growing up, Andrew was one of the legends I looked up to. His smooth Tom Curren-esque style and raw Archie-like lip hacks inspired me. Here’s to all the core locals out there like Andrew; the type of guys that surf all day as long as there’s waves – a surfer through adn through.

Nailed it!

Wow, that board is exactly what I was hoping for. Nailed it! Rad. Thanks so...

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.
