The day the Tiger broke free

Todd Proctor,

You are the man!

I finally took out the 9’8″ “Tiger in the Tail” you made for me today. I am sorry but yes, it has taken long to get into the water because I missed the last season (with that board) by a day and had shelved surfing activities afterwards for various reasons.

The board is simply amazing! It’s as if it has been tailor made for me and sort of fits like a glove!

I don’t know what you’ve done,

but it carried my 260 pounds on the very first wave

after nine months of no surfing without a single wobble.

I did catch two waves after that but only body surfed them. Same story. In fact, it’s hard to fall off that board.

Dhruva from Mantra Surf Club asked me if he could try it and I let him have it for “ten minutes”. He hung five on the very first wave (a puny 2 footer). He also did a pirouette on the board on a later wave.

I’m sorry I dont have photographs for your website because I discovered the batteries were dead after I hit the beach. But will get some next time.

I don’t think I will be using any other board ever. I’ve found my magic board. …

and like I told Charissa, maybe a Monstachief at some point.

Reverence, Sir.

Keep it alive, and happiness to you and yours,

Mahesh Kamath // 9’8″ x 24″ x 3 1/2″ squaretail SuperFortress // Mangalore, India
