Mile 22


Serious watermen and waterwomen trust Mile 22 Monsters to transport their prone paddleboards, big-wave guns, SUPs, outriggers, surf-skis, surfboards and sports gear. Monsters are the last tie-down you’ll ever need. You don't have to take our word for it — this is what the pros and bros say.

“I’ve used other straps, the buckles always rust and fail. Those can be costly failures. That’s why I choose Monster Straps; maximum durability and reliability without worries.”
— Mike Dilloughery
GhostRyders Waterman’s Club & Steamer Lane lifer

“The M22 Monster is my go-to tiedown strap set up. The ease of use is “handy” especially for someone in my shoes. Simplicity of use and durability are unsurpassed with the Monsters! Best tie down around for sure, and a must have in any serious water enthusiasts quiver.”
— Jeff Denholm
Patagonia ambassador & GhostRyders Waterman’s Club

"They (Monsters) are by far the best straps I have ever used in my life. There's no comparison. That's what happens when people who actually give a s#!+ see a problem (with the products in the marketplace), and then make it themselves."
— John Beausang
Co-Founder, PDL MNSTR & Distressed Mullet

“You wouldn’t buy a cheap car seat for your baby...why would you buy cheap tie-downs for your boards? To keep those things secure on your rack, you need Monster Straps. I’m talking about the boards, not the baby.”
— Mike "M3" Roberts
California fireman and conscientious parent

“Owning a paddleboard shop has logistical considerations. What is the safest, most secure way to transport multiple, high value SUPs over 10 feet in length? We brought in Mile 22’s Monster Straps. Strap down 4-5 boards? No worries! So glad for a product I can trust with precious cargo. The best part; every customer that has bought them says the same thing, ‘I love them!’ And I love happy customers.”
— Jaime Caluya
Owner, SUP California, Folsom CA

“If I had a penny for every board I strapped on the roof of my truck I could buy a sick van and keep them inside. Since I don't have any pennies, I am lucky that Mile 22 Monsters came along. Super-strong and easy to use. Solid product.”
— Zach Wormhoudt
Mavericks lifer & GhostRyders Waterman’s Club

“The guys at Mile 22, who call one of our most amazing marine protected areas — the Monterey Bay — home, are putting great products out in the world to help the rest of us explore our waters closer to home. The new Fuel Dock is awesome!”
— Bruckner Chase
GU team ambassador & ocean endurance athlete

“I've used Monster Straps for years. I love their length, and how easy they are to tie down. They are perfect for going in and out to the beach, and for my surf school because I can strap down up to five boards with one strap."
— Zane Schweitzer
Maui waterman, SUP/surf/foil/windsurf professional

“Mile 22 Monsters have kept our SUP race boards safe during travels throughout California and Hawaii for years. The length, ease of use and durability is awesome. The plastic buckles won't ding the paint on your car, unlike metal buckles. Hands down, best straps out there!"
— Kali’a and John Alexiou
California fireman and father/daughter super duo

"I use Monster straps on everything from a single paddleboard to three longboards stacked up. Super secure and strong—never had a problem. And they double as an emergency shoulder strap when your board bag fails in Mexico."
— Josh Pederson
GhostRyders Waterman’s Club, 'This Ocean Life' podcast host

“We've used a lot of different straps over the years—Monsters are the best. The webbing is supple but super strong, just feels good in your hands, wraps around board contours, and is non-abrasive. The buckle is simple and very easy to manage tension. The Fast Snap loop makes us happy to fold the excess strap neatly for storage. We love to support companies that put their heart and soul in to the sports we love.”
— Brian Peterson & Sabine Dukes
Prone & SUP distance junkies, MTB racers

“Mile 22 Monsters have made loading and securing my boards a breeze. I no longer trust skinny surf straps with metal buckles. I just drove from California to North Carolina and my Monsters never loosened, moved, or left scratches or dents in my boards. They are now my go-to gift for all of my watermen friends.”
— Sarah Knie

“Doesn’t matter where you’re going, what you're riding or what is on your rack. Mile 22 Monsters hold your gear down tight. Surfboards, paddleboards, dirt bikes, rooftop gear, whatever. I don’t travel without them. They have saved my ass more than once.”
— Kayman Benetti
MTB/Moto-X racer, surfer, GoPro ambassador

“I drove from Huntington Beach, California, to New Jersey with ten new surfboards on the roof of my truck, for my surf school quiver. Monsters keep them snug all the way. I’ve been using the same set for years, they are nearly indestructible. They go with me everywhere; Mexico, Barbados, Nicaragua… I don’t go anywhere without em.”
