    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.

    impossible to have one board.

    You need at least three to surf all the time. A longboard for anything, a thruster for steep walled breaks, and a fish for everything in between.

    My 5,7 rusty dozer. Its probably the best allround board iv ever owned. I can surf it in anything from 2 foot to 8 foot. Its like a more standerd shortboard version of a dumpster diver. and its a 5 fin, that board set up as a quad can handle some juice! iv had it out in just about everything jerz can throw at you,

    My 6'4" WRV Nugget seems to be one of the best overall boards that I have. I've been riding it with the quad setup...i think i should have gotten it slightly shorter, in the 5'10"-6'0" range, but no worries. I contemplating on picking up a Slayer or a Chronic, but not sure which one yet...if anybody has ridden either or, or both and can give me some insight, that would be great!
