For the next 2 hours I had one of the best sessions of my life


Sorry it took so long to write about your boards that you shaped for me before Christmas. I just returned from a 3 week trip down in Morocco and was finally able to put them thru their paces that they deserved. So…

proctor surfboards round nose fish, lil’ rascal
6’1″ x 20 1/2″ x 2 5/8″ Lil’ Rascal

Surfed in head high mushy point surf and what a blast!!!

She was such a skatey, slippery little board that after a couple of waves just worked like a dream. Lot of speed off the bottom, loose anywhere on the wave and a great laugh. All who saw her were very impressed with the shape and fin system. Great choice

6’6″ x 19 5/8″ x 2 9/16″ Groveler IV.p Rounded Squash Tail

My work horse. Surfed this from shoulder high to solid 6-7′ points. Was a great board in the beefier waves. Pushed back when I needed it out on the shoulder for cutties,

paddled like a dream, very fast around sections and held suprisingly well in the hollow stuff.

At my first impression upon opening, she seemed pretty over built and to be honest she is for a lot of occassions. A lot of thickness everywhere. I asked you for an all around board and you did a good job. Next time will probably go a little smaller in size and thickness. Overall, was very pleased with the board, again, another good choice.

7’0″ x 19 1/2″ x 2 5/8″ Ante Up Roundpin

Surfed in 7′-10′ Anchor Point. Now this board was such an amazing ride. Paddleing out on that big day with new board I was a little concerned. But as soon as I made it out the back a wave popped up just in front of me. And from the the paddle in to the finish, I just shat myself!!!! Paddled in soooo easy and early and once to my feet was no kidding and I hate the expression, ‘like a magic carpet ride.’ The board had so much speed and control, glided around sections easily, turning off the bottom was always controlable, was unlike any board I had ever ridden.

For the next 2 hours I had one of the best sessions of my life on that board

and can only wait to ride it once again.

As for the office side of your buisness, I found Charissa very helpful and pleasant. Her side was as good as the boards you made me.

I have to say that when I find myself back in Cali and I need a new board I will definetly be giving you a call for my next shape.

Cheers Todd and Charissa
