Developed specifically for heavier surfers and/or those that surf more off their rail; this is the shortboard you can rip on and not sink on. Heavier surfers and those that grew up surfing during the 80’s era tend to surf more with their rails then off their fins. So the fuller rails of this design are essential for a board that “pushes back” and drives through turns. Increased volume, especially under the chest, affords ease in paddling. A versatile rocker and a single-to-double concave bottom generates incredible speed in the small stuff, yet maintains the essential responsiveness for quick direction changes in the pocket. There’s a slight vee off the back fin that gives the board a positive directional hold through turns.
Dimensions: 6'10" x 20" x 2 5/8"
Tail Shape: swallow tail
Glassing: 4oz bottom, 6oz+4oz deck
Fins: comes with Future Fins, AM2
I am attaching a couple of pictures of me surfing my Big Chief in Santa Catalina, one of Panama´s most renowned breaks. The wave offers plenty of punch, and it suits the board really well. This is just the second time I ride this board, we haven´t had much luck with swells this year, and I still have to get it a bit more wired, but I can already tell you that the ride with this board felt like the right balance between maneuverability and control. I was able to place it all over the face of the wave, even got a little barrel (second photo I was just coming out) with a lot of ease.
The construction is great, I am pretty rough on boards and this one took my 240 pounds of body weight right in the middle of the deck in a couple of wipeouts without a single pressure ding.
Again, my congratulations for a great product and great service.
Talk to you soon,

Great meeting you and Charissa last week, real privilege, I had been looking to buy a board in CA. Ray had taken me around the shops and shaper bays in Ventura. I had given up hope on finding my new board, until I met you guys, Ray clearly had been saving the best till last! The `Big Chief` Board is one amazing work, but really it was meeting the artist, the little tour of your your shop, totally stoked about the
hospitality and good vibe I had with you guys.
In Mauritius there are three things for certain, 1. I have the only Ray Moss 9'6 long stick here. 2. This is the first Proctor to wash up on these shores and 3. With these hollow,
wackin reef breaks I amped to be trying my best on the Big-Chief.
Ps. There was a good Proctor section at the back of the special edition `Surfer` Feb issue.
My next board is a custom Proctor- Twin Fang.
Jah bless brother. Hope to see you in Santosha!
I just returned from Rincon Puerto Rico. I scored great waves at Maria’s and Domes(solid 6-8). I used the board that you made for me this past Spring. I had the best sessions I have had yet do in large part because of the magic board. I had a major break through in my surfing and I can’t tell you how excited I am about that. I will be ordering another board from you this Spring.

Been awhile since I bought this board but I wanted to let you know that I took it out for a session and was pleased with the results. A few warm ups and it was like I was back to my old surfing self when I was 17 and on. The board is a great blend of old and new. A great feel.
A highlight for me was a floater over a section, and a close out hack. OH what FUN!
I'll be up in the next few months to pick up another board for my trip to the Mentawais in May.
All the best,
I love my new board! I just wanted to thank you and everyone at Proctor Surfboards for building me a great board. I am convinced this board is made of the finest materials and represents the finest quality workmanship available today. I especially appreciate the time you took discussing the design with me so the board will work the way I expected. You shaped me a board that works for me for the type of surfing I do. From the first wave I caught I got very positive feedback that built my confidence in the board while feeling a very fast and loose board under my feet that wanted to get up and go. I also get many compliments on the airbrush work. It really turned out nice.
Thanks again. I look forward to many good sessions on my new Proctor surfboard.
