Vintage hand shaped Proctor Longboard still a favorite after 8 years


Do you remember me?

I bought the first board out of your factory when you opened up.

It’s a hand shaped performance longboard.

This is still my favorite board

after 8 years

I’ve caught some really gnarly waves on this baby.

I love this board!

Thanks for the ding repair –

he is happily riding it again!
