Picked-up the 6’4″ MonstaChief from Hawaiian South Shore and got to surf it in 1-2+ ft. (Hawaiian scale) at Threes Waikiki yesterday.
The board catches waves so easily and I caught a ton of waves.
I rode it with the honeycomb AMT Futures fins and
the board had heaps of drive and speed.
What surprised me the most was how quickly the board recovered in a tail-slide (unintentional) cutback.
On that cutback, I thought I dug the inside rail and was about to backflop and waste the wave,
but, wow, the next thing I knew,
I was banking off the foam and shooting back down the line
In that instance, I knew it was the board and not me that saved what I thought was a going to be a major fail.
Todd really is a shaper extraordinaire,
please send him my regards.
