    If i still lived in socal i could probably just use the rock up as an all arounder.

    31 Years. 18 on and off surfing. 5'10. 180-185lbs... lots of boards most beaters but lately I've riding these 4.

    5'8 20 x 2 1/2 5 fin rocket fish
    6'0 20 x 2 1/2 retro twinzer fish
    6'3 18 3/4 x 2 1/2 pulled in round pin thruster
    6'6 19 x 2 1/4 Baby swallow step up with glass ons

    are wrv boards any good? seems like they produce so many aimed towards the tourists that flock down here. I see so many people with wrv stickers, foam racks, boards, accessories out the wazoo. I haven't seen any that I was like "wow that looks like a lot of fun to ride." anyone have some good experience with them
    not sure about who does their boards now but many a quality shapper mowed foam for them in the past Bill Frierson, Tommy Moore, Mike Daniels, Redman, Jim Fuller, Lynn Shell & Jesse Fernandez all come to mind among others. Had a board from most of them at some point in my life with no issues (in fact the Fuller SB was one of the best I ever owned and there's been too many good Frierson's to count).

  4. I'm 6'1 175lbs,

    I'm about 5'7" and 135 lbs give or take a few of each...

    I started out on a 6'2" very thin shortboard...a "friend" gave me to have. He decided to take it back so I bought a used 6'5" 2" 1/2 18' 3/4" Rusty shortboard with a round pin tail instead of a squash which is what I started with. I must say it has helped me get a bunch of waves. I truly enjoy this sport of surfing and hence consider myself to be "ripping" already. I suggest everyone chooses their board wisely to get the most out of their surfing experience. It's my "go to board" since that is all I have at the time being and do not consider buying a new one until I figure out all these little details that allow one to maximize their performance. I might consider something fishy in about 3-5months to enjoy the small east coast "chop" we get during the summer over here. I'll probably have to get a solid ocean canoe for the summer so I can get the waves way out in the open. Figure I'll just anchor down out there and hopefully not get bitten by anything "fishy" hehe . You can surf anywhere if you really want to! I'm getting educated through this and can't wait to get a new one and hopefully one day shape my own. Well, that's my two cents. If you are a real surfing enthusiaist, you gotta get this right, and not always just back off a wave to have to paddel less to get back out. Do a front flip or a back flip and feel the water dude !

    5-7 and 190(ish) and 44years old

    7-6 single fin pintail--home shaped for chest high and up
    9-0 Bing Trimulux for anyting under the eyebrows
    9-4 Soul Performance custom high performance longboard--set up as a thruster--my 'hurricane chaser'

    I also have a 6-8 Rusty Piranha, a 7-4 Ashton squashtail thruster and a few other boards that get thrown into the mix. Also have a couple of ideas I plan to shape over the next few months.

    I usually bring a couple of boards to the beach and make gametime decisions based on conditions and mood.
