    see if you can keep all three, tell your wife that the smallest complete quiver a surfer can own consists of 3 boards

    Anything a funboard can do, a hybrid can do better, especially for the experienced surfer. But that's a very small niche in the board-building world, and many manufacturers don't even produce them. But every label's got a funboard line.

    Being married and having just gotten my third board I would say that it is up to you to convince her how important a quiver is for areas with not much surf. It sounds like you already failed at this when getting the new board, but I understand the bargaining principle. Selling my boards is just not an option we entertain. She does get mad because its never enough. But I always fall back on the fact that I'm gonna teach the whole family(we have three kids) so I am actually 2 short of what I need for that. I would say find something else to sell, or a quick side job so you can say "look honey, this makes up for it". Next time use a different bargaining chip, not one of your other boards. Just my 2 cents.

    I think you guys are right. I used the wrong bargaining chip. Seems like it's time to renegotiate the terms. Since I got the log saturday before last I've been out 5 times. That's a whole lot more than normal for me and I'm surprised at how much things are starting to come together. Don't get me wrong, I still suck but now instead of trying to figure out how to quit riding in the white water I'm trying to figure out where to be on the face of the wave. I'm thinking that's progress. Point is, now that I'm starting to work some things out I want to try different things.

    A good pipe layin' ain't a bad idea either. Plus, that's a win win.
