The rails have amazing hold and the V2 rocker gives it an aggressive feeling while still being forgiving

Hey Charissa and Todd,

Just wanted to follow up and let you know I finally got to get a few days of good surfing in on the new Monsta.

Typically it takes me a few sessions to dial in a board at different spots, but I can honestly say I have not had a bad/weird experience on this thing yet. I have surfed it all over Oxnard and Ventura the last few days, in different conditions, every time it performs.

It worked in smaller mushier point waves, as well as hollower overhead beach break very well.

It is already proving to be very versatile and is a better replacement to the old beat up board in my quiver that I loved. This model was a perfect suggestion and I am glad you were able to take the time and set it up in the shaping room with me.

Of course it wont work in everything…

so the great thing is once the surf gets really solid, I have my super typhoon ready to go, which is another great board that has proved itself at home and in Bali in good waves.

Both boards have amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail. It might be a while until I need another one, but I know where I will be going to order it and look forward to adding another Proctor to my quiver in the future. Thanks again for everything!
