    I'm a fan of the wider/thicker/low rocker shortboard trend going on. Not ideal in tiny mush or overhead bombs but for the majority of the swells we get on the east coast they go great.

    i second this. these types of boards work well in even slightly overhead stuff too. an rnf type of board would be a good choice as well. for me, it's a 6'0"x20 1/4"x2 5/8" dumpster diver type board...full rails, wide nose, & wide tail.

    if you want to surf most every day and were limited to 1 board you couldnt go wrong with a 7ft funshape. easily duckdivable,able to catch the big stuff and useful as a log. of course id prefer to ride a hp shortboard daily but thatd be too frustrating

    i gotta go with my trusty old 9'4". cross stepping to the nose on small days, nice big looping carves on the bigger ones, nothing better.

    CI sashimi, or something similar (i.e., stealth, rocket, etc.). Healthy amount of nose rocker lower tail...wide tail...etc.
