I’ve been working with Todd for a little over a year now and the best way I can sum him up,
“He’s a master craftsman as well as a consummate professional!”
Over the years, I’ve had the blessed opportunity to work with some of the world’s best surfing shapers.
Aside from Todd Proctor being one of these world’s best shapers, the attribute that stands out the most
is the fact that he is willing to listen to you
as the client and make you exactly what you want.
No ego with this guy, just awesome custom building!
All of my boards from Todd work amazingly well
but there’s definately a couple of them that I consider my magic carpets…
6′ 6″ – 6 channel swallow tail:
This board has turned out to be my all around work horse.
It’s the fastest,most responsive board I’ve ever owned!
The thing about this board is the fact that it’s so alive
in small waves but yet it maintains control in punchier surf.
I can push this board in the 7 foot Hawaiian scale with utmost
7′ 2″ and 7′ 6″ – sharp pin tail:
I’ve been working on this design for nearly 2 decades.
Once again, the great thing about Todd is his lack of ego and his willingness to learn new ideas and
concepts. The concept with these two boards is thicker, fuller rails with plenty
of old school V for the bottom design. These boards are excedingly fast and
stable and not only do they work great at Pipe and sunset but they work in
powerful surf world wide.
I wanted to call right away, cause I just got out of the water & I got to ride the 7’2″.
Everyone was crowding the right @ Backdoor,
and I saw some good ones nobody was going for @ Pipe, so I swung into a few.
On the first wave, I took off & thought I was way too deep,
so I railed into it a little &
felt the board take-off like I’ve never
felt a board accelerate in the barrel before.
we are on to a good track already
with these first boards…
not bad for just talking over what I needed on the phone.
