    Whats your Daily driver?

    What have you been surfing on lately?
    What type of waves does it excel at?
    Dimensions?
    Fin Set up?
    What you like about it and what you don't.

    here on the east coast, i don't think there is such a thing as a "daily driver". that being said, the boards i ride most frequently here in jersey are:

    5'8" bing puck (quad)
    6'0" ci neckbeard (5 fin set up as a quad)
    6'3" wynn roundtail (5 fin set up as a quad)...this one is going to have to be cleaned up & retired for a bit in order to make it last until my honeymoon next year. so instead of riding this board, i'll be riding a
    6'4" roberts black thumb (thruster)

    Three boards in my quiver that get the most water time:

    good waves... chest high to just overhead... 6'6 round tail thruster

    small/mushy waves... waist to shoulder high... 6'0 fish

    small and clean... knee to waist... 9'3 single fin noserider

    On the biggest days of the year... head and a half to as big as it gets... 7'0 rounded pin thruster

    variety is the spice of life. Unless the waves are of consequence I grab whatever I'm feelin. Fish, the six fo, a retro, whatever, I try to spread the love. Real waves I grab the pin tail 6'6 or gasp... the step up travel board 7'2 bushman

    Agreed... variety, my go-to lately has been my McTavish, but that's what the waves are calling for right now. I'm sure i'm going to be getting a lot more time on the WRV Fish here real soon though, and then hopefully this winter i'll pick up a true shorty and get back to where I use to be, on a 6'4" thruster. Looking at picking up a custom COIL, so hopefully things go as planned.

    6'2"x20.5"x2.5" Ashton squashtail thruster. its basically an 80's shape with more modern foils. the board works insane in anything from thigh high to head high. it gets a bit skittish when it gets overhead.

    5'4" FST Firewire Sweet Potato, FCS H2 quad fins...best board I've ever had for East Coast surf, & I've been surfing 20 years...having the right fin for the board makes a big difference as well.
