    What's everyone's all-time favorite board?

    What's your favorite board to take out? May not be necessarily the one which gets the most use but the board that you just squeal with Giddiness when you're loading it up.

    6'6 round tail HPSB... 'cause that means it's pumping.

    Other than that, my fish... makes even a mediocre day a blast.

    So far I like my funboard. WRV shaped by Mike Doyle. Floats well and catches everything so far. I just need to improve my pop up timing and ride it better. Planes smoothly with a lot of forgiveness toward my novice techniques.

    best board ever...Hot Stuff Kong model circa 1986 from BB Bombers. LOVED that board. Best in current quiver...6.2x20x2.5 Ashton squashtail. just magic in almost every condition.

    20080215_154116_18.jpg20080215_152831_7.jpgMy all time favorite board is my (don't laugh) step-up longboard. 9-4x21.5x3 speed nose, pin tail 7.5oz volan glass. Had it custom made by Mark Brog in Redondo Beach four years ago. Works equally well as a single or a true thruster with 4.5" sidebites and trailer.

    Hey Pump I have always ridden 6.2x18x2.5. I have toyed with the idea with going wider to a 20". In your opinion what are the benefits of going wider? Thanks

    pros=paddles easier and as an older guy, I like that. Definitely has way more float and that is a big help with mushy sections.

    Cons=doesn't have that 'knifeyness' that an 18 inch width would have.

    You said it, brother... My 6'6 is 20"x2 9/16 but thin railed and thinly foiled in the nose and tail.

    my first wider board was like that and worked great. this board has a wider tail ala 80s style and it rocks:
