The ‘one board quiver’. The most versatile board for waves two foot to just overhead; mushy or hollow.It has become most surfers’ “normal everyday board for all conditions”. The only complaint has become, “I don’t ride any of my other boards anymore!”
This new life form is the high performance great grandchild of the Lil’ Rascal….it has morphed, grown a bit sleeker, but has stayed true to it’s roots of blistering speed through its heritage of a shorter, wider, stalkier persona. Where this offspring has matured and pushed past it’s predecessors is in the area of versatility and in-the-pocket mobility. The Monsta keeps the speed constant….you don’t have to rely so much on the wave dictating where you’ll derive your speed from….the board just goes, yet has the hold of a normal good waves shortboard when you bare some teeth into your turns. Where the Rascal utilized a spiral vee contour running through the fin cluter, I’ve plowed all those guts out of the Monsta and left one deep even concave with subtle inset doubles running through the fins…as well there is also concave running right off the tail block; we call it the ‘exhaust pipe’. Ride Da Monsta 3-4 inches shorter and 1/2” wider than your standard good waves shortboard

I use 4 different rockers for this board depending on the waves in your area:
the v.1 being the flattest and best for mushy small point surf;
the v.1.3 being the most user friendly from novice to expert and working in the widest ranges of wave types and sizes;
the v.2 has a bit more rocker and can handle the demands of hyperactive rippers who can’t stay out of the pocket, or for surfers who’s local spots tend to be small, but can still be small and hollow at the same time i.e. the N.Y./ N.J. beachbreaks, Newport, Huntington, Texas, Japan, etc…small beachbreaky kind of stuff…found all over really…
the HD which combines the Monsta outline & rails with Hideoscillous rocker & bottom. Ideal for small scale waves; incredible back foot control through on-rail full-speed cutties.
‘Through Gates of Splendor’ … in the cathedrals of our soul, we realize there’s something more… Monsta outline & rails with Hideoscillous rocker & bottom. Ideal for small scale waves; incredible back foot control through on-rail full-speed cutties.
This is the Monsta design ridden a couple inches longer than the standard Monsta, a touch narrower, with thinner rails, a sleeker outline and a roundtail for positive hold through turns with power. If you like the Monsta design and want one for waves slightly bigger or with more power, than this is the board for you.
5 fin install & fins to ride as quad/thruster at an additional $45.
