Da Monsta turns 10

A Cali one-board-quiver by Proctor celebrates its 10 yr. birthday.

Three friends, a shaping room, some board banter, and kinetic surfing pepper this remembrance of the first of its kind. Although this shape has undergone many iterations throughout the years, the original design has retained a fond and relevant longevity.

Da Monsta

The ‘one board quiver’. The most versatile board for waves two foot to just overhead; mushy or hollow.It has become most surfers’ “normal everyday board for all conditions”.

The only complaint has become, “I don’t ride any of my other boards anymore!”

This new life form is the high performance great grandchild of the Lil’ Rascal….it has morphed, grown a bit sleeker, but has stayed true to it’s roots of blistering speed through its heritage of a shorter, wider, stalkier persona. Where this offspring has matured and pushed past it’s predecessors is in the area of versatility and in-the-pocket mobility.

The Monsta keeps the speed constant….you don’t have to rely so much on the wave dictating where you’ll derive your speed from….the board just goes, yet has the hold of a normal good waves shortboard when you bare some teeth into your turns. Where the Rascal utilized a spiral vee contour running through the fin cluter,

I’ve plowed all those guts out of the Monsta and left one deep even concave with subtle inset doubles running through the fins…as well there is also concave running right off the tail block; we call it the ‘exhaust pipe‘.

Ride Da Monsta 3-4 inches shorter and 1/2” wider than your standard good waves shortboard

  • FIN CONFIGURATIONthruster or five fin option to ride as tri or quad

  • WAVE PREFERENCESknee high and mushy to head high and hollow

  • AVAILABLE TAIL CONFIGURATIONS: wide rounded squash, wide hip-squash, swallowtail, round/thumbtail

  • RECOMMENDED RIDER TYPES: beginner to advanced

Monstas come in many iterations, constructions & artwork options.

Here are a few examples. Custom tune with Todd & have yours built to order.

MONSTA HD:

‘Through Gates of Splendor’ … in the cathedrals of our soul, we realize there’s something more… Monsta outline & rails with Hideoscillous rocker & bottom. Ideal for small scale waves; incredible back foot control through on-rail full-speed cutties.

MONSTA STEP-UP:

This is the Monsta design ridden a couple inches longer than the standard Monsta, a touch narrower, with thinner rails, a sleeker outline and a roundtail for positive hold through turns with power. If you like the Monsta design and want one for waves slightly bigger or with more power, than this is the board for you.

A tale of two Monstas:

Two boards, same dims, same outline, same rails, different rockers and bottoms. 5’6” x 18 5/8” x 2 1/4” 25L with one being a #Flyinmonstasurfboard (rocker of the #Flyinlionsurfboard with the outline and rails of the #Monstasurfboard) and the other being the historical yet still relevant #Monstasurfboard v.2. They are for Brandon in Costa Rica. It’s a fun design process journey to see what different bottoms do on the same planshape and rails. I’ve found it’s a great way to venture out without veering off…to discover what works good, what works better and what works best for you.

Also introducing some new tailpads by @octopusisreal They are filthy good and we like their organic industrial look. Octo pads now available for new boards and at the shop…punk rock front foot pads too.

The Ghost:ghost shortboard surfboard complement to monsta

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.

Description

the v.1

beginner – advancedbeing the flattest and best for mushy small point surf

the v.1.3

beginner – advanced‘the people’s board’ being the most user friendly from novice to expert and working in the widest ranges of wave types and sizes. The working man’s board. A quick and easy, quick paddling, drivey, plenty of foam, versatile, fast, fun, turns-on-a-dime rippin’ board for those of us that can’t always wait for the perfect conditions to come together. Small and crumbly – no problem; overhead and good….also wonderful; whatever conditions you encounter when you get the chance to jump out there, this model guarantees you’ll have fun. A board for the people.

MonstaSqueak

beginner – advancedblends the low entry under the chest / flip tip of the Pipsqueak with a flatter run through the belly rocker and some extra tail flip off the back fin. Combined with heavy deep single to inset double concave bottom gives this board incredible small wave drive without compromising a nice crisp whippy feel in turns

the v.2

intermediate – advancedhas a wide-open sweet spot even single-to-inset-doubles & a bit more tail rocker to handle the demands of hyperactive rippers who can’t stay out of the pocket – or for surfers who’s local spots tend to be small, but can still be small and hollow at the same time i.e. the N.Y./ N.J. beachbreaks, Newport, Huntington, Texas, Japan, etc…small beachbreaky kind of stuff…found all over really…

the v.3

intermediate – advancedis a pockety Monsta with deeper concaves for more backfooted surfers who like to release the tail & go for airs. The ‘inverted fulcrum’ rocker shift allows gravity’s laws to be bent … even broken. Invert yourself.

the HD

intermediate – advancedcombines the Monsta outline & rails with Hideoscillous rocker & bottom. Ideal for small scale waves; incredible back foot control through on-rail full-speed cutties. Mallet instead of scalpel.

the MonstaJet

beginner – advancedcombines the Monsta outline & rails with Jetstream hydrofoil-esque concaves to generate smooth controllable speed – a paradigm shift for surfers of all ages, skill sets & abilities.

The board was shaped out of a new algae based @arctic_foam blank; a completely green enviro friendly version of polyurethane foam. This one has racy black sprayed rails that turn a deep chocolaty brown from the orange tint that covers them and envelopes the blank. Its glassed with @colanaustralia hi-clear direct size glass with carbon/ basalt woven stringer patch, and tail patches. It’s super lite too so we’ll see how it goes and let you know how it holds up to the beatings under @petemendia ‘s feet. Fascinating times indeed.

A great board for summertime ripping; not quite a full on groveler like the Hiddy, but not as critical as a Monsta. A perfect cross between glide and snappy release.

Have you read up on ‘quantum entanglement’ lately?
It’s a sub-strata of quantum physics and you really oughtta give it a check out. It goes something like this: You know when you randomly think about something or someone for no particular reason they / it just pops into your head; usually kinda like, “hmmm I wonder what’s going on with them / that?” ….and then, out of the blue (even if you haven’t been in contact for years and without any other subsequent pursuit than a thought)….there suddenly is a ring ring or knock knock or a hey you from across the beach, and…it’s that very person or thing you were thinking about. Well according to quantum entanglement we are all connected at some level. Even particles that can be on the other side of the world or even the other side of the galaxy; with quantum entanglement, communication is immediate. It does not require the speed of sound, or fiber optics or even the speed of light; it’s signals are immediate. A very interesting theory to say the least, and this is also a very very simplified version of what the real scientists know about it. Could it be the form of communication of the future? Could it be how the Spirit of God gets our attention? Or could it just be a massive chemical superhighway spanning everywhere and linking everything into relationship? Or maybe both?
Here’s Dane. I hadn’t seen him in years. I was thinking about him and a 5’7” x 19” x 2 1/4” #Monstasurfboard v.2 out of titanium II epoxy construction with an experimental composite stringer and vector net that he grabbed out of stock from the showroom four years ago…I wondered what he was up to and how that board went and how it was holding up. And guess what? A half hour later Dane walks into the showroom and says hey I’m doing great and that board is sick I’m still riding it. It’s holding up great, wanna see it I have it in the car with me right now

This is Pierce from Oxnard who just arrived back home from a year long road trip driving from Ventura through Baja, then mainland Mexico, then through Central America, down into panama, then turned around and drove back home; surfing every surfable spot along the way. Kinda reminds me of a Forrest Gump move, but in a van surfing instead of runningggg.
What better way to celebrate arriving home and the new year than by grabbing up a freshie off the floor and ordering up a new quiver before heading to Indo till 2021.

Stoked surfer reports >> this just in: (From a previous post regarding a 5’10” x 19 1/2” x 2 1/2” 31.2L duplicate of a magic #Monstasurfboard v-1.3 / #Zipstajet (top board) but this time we went with a swallowtail and short channels off the tail – bottom board)…”Wow is all I can say!! I was finally able to ride this board, on this last Cali swell. Went to a local Newport spot where mick fanning was spotted. 4’-6’ beach break barrels on tap. First wave – the board stuck, flew and released when I wanted it to. Now my confidence peaked, I felt as if I was on drugs I was so stoked. This board is beyond magic. After our session a buddy says to me “man, that’s the best I’ve ever seen you surf, you were so confident, charging and ripping”. Having confidence is such a huge part of surfing – like 50/50 confidence and ability. 🙌🏻 thx proctor!! That’s a review btw – I think every surfer should own this board, it’s a well rounded shredding machine!!!” —Christian 36/5’9”/190lb #surferfeedback

Welcome to cotton candy land with a twist of taffy swirl:
5’8” x 19 1/4” x 2 3/8” 27.8L #Monstavarotti for Anika.
The new #Pavarottisurfboard rocker and bottom has been such a hit, that I’ve begun morphing it onto existing outlines, like this swallowtail #Monstasurfboard. My Italian Uncle ‘Salvi’ Salvatore used to work on Italian car engines for Steve McQueen and Elvis Presley back in the day. Salvi’s specialty was with AlphaRomeo’s and Maserati’s. I visited him once in Sicily in the little old world ancient mountaintop town named Savoca where he and my Auntie Anna lived. He would force me to take shots of uzo and anisette with him at age 14, then have me sit shotgun while he leadfooted the latest racecar he was working on, speeding down the single lane mountain pass. I remember whiteknuckling the door handle and leaning over and telling my uncle, “I think you should slow down around the blind curves!” To which Salvi would yell back, “No Todd it’s better we go fast!…more control dat way!”…and so this latest Monsta iteration kinda sounds to me like one of those classic Italian racecars Uncle Salvatore would push the envelope in…thus the “Monstavarotti” has been born. Board video design breakdown coming soon.
By the way, the cumulative work here by our crew with all hands involved from start to finish is what really makes everything tick over here. Charissa on client interfacing, order timelines (and basically making the whole ship run -p.s. she could run a small country / or a big one), Pedro on CNC machine, Todd on board design, shaping, and art concept and custom consult, Charissa again on custom pigment resin color mix, Spencer on resin swirl and cutlap lamination, Nick on fins and sand. So from our little racecar garage to you, we wish you some exhilarating rides on your #Monstavarotti

Just shaped it:
First of its kind for a local Ventura surfer named Brennan. It’s a step-up for a hollow rare gem point that roars to life every now and again. The outline is that of the #Holyrollersurfboard / #monstasurfboard i.e. fuller in the nose to roll in early, swept back roundpin to sit easy crispy in the tube; subtle beak nose; low volume rails to knife into the wave face while the lip pitches out; thickness down the center and under the chest to motor around a wide open playing field; a single to double #Jetstreamsurfboard hydrofoilesque hull; with parabolic inset compression chamber sluiceboxes with side channels that split off sustaining a four pack of glass-on bonzers; capped off with a small center box to hold a five incher…I’ll keep you posted as she gets lammed up, finned up and generally comes all together. I’ve found that by scalloping the sluicebox concaves to follow the outline through the midsection of the board and then angle them to a compression transition zone through the fins, creates this huge wide open sweet spot from under the front foot through the entire board, and the added water flow heading into the fins creates a dynamic vortex enabling the board to generate even higher levels of turbulent-smoothing speeds than previous jet stream / sluicebox combinations. It will be very interesting to see what all this does with the added leverage and surface areas of a bonzer fin setup as well. Keep ya posted mates…

It’s a new addition to the lineup this year. It’s called the #Pavarottisurfboard it’s a high performance uber-groveller, but it’s also is a great all around everyday board that catches waves easy with a fuller nose and lower entry rocker. Ridden roughly the same dimensions as a #Monstasurfboard or an inch shorter. IT MAKES YOU SING IN A WHOLE OTHER OCTAVE.
This one’s headed to Ryan 48/5’11”/162lb for Rhode Island points

In response to overwhelming requests for stock boards that are ready to go, we are instituting a new program here at the factory to keep a steady supply of exact duplicates of our most magical boards from over the years that have been featured in videos or mags and digital stories; or that are simply models we do a bunch of with positive feedback from a broad cross-section of all kinds of surfers. Our primary focus still remains the custom experience and that will never change as long as there’s breath in my lungs and gravel in my gut, but for those of you who have an aversion to planning ahead, we’re giving you an outlet to your “I need a magic board and I need it now!” desires. Here’s a 5’10” x 19 1/2” x 2 7/16” 29L #Monstasurfboard v.2 a staple of the Proctor everyday versatile Cali workhorse breed. The original Monsta that still rings relevant, crisp and refreshing 10 years running. Deep gouges, tail wafts or speed runs she puts a smile day in day out. Ventura factory showroom pickup or shipped worldwide door-to-door insured. ⬆️ link in bio > for more Ready to Ship boards⬆️

This is Frank from Santa Barbara. He’s a cool cat because he’s a mellow cat. Quietly confident, respectful; no lame attitude, just style like ease and power that detonates…surfing that does the talking. Here he is last swell tearing across on his way through the cove.
5’8” x 19 1/4” x 2 3/8” 28L #Monstavarottisurfboard (that’s a #Monstasurfboard outline and rails with the new #Pavarottisurfboard rocker and deep jetstream single-to-inset-double concaves.), with a swallowtail and four short channels. In ultralite poly construction.

When the tight turning whippiness of the #Flyinlionsurfboard meets the drivey versatility of the #Monstasurfboard the resultant equation brings forth the #Flyinmonsta
