    Call or stop in at Greenlight... look at the SPUD or one of Brian's Subway Series boards. The SPUD is similar to the Sweet Potato, but with a couple modifications for local surf. Main features: flat rocker with a touch of flip in the nose; thick, flat deck with an angular rail that rolls over into a thin, performance rail radius (gives added volume, but without that full, corky rail); nose-to-tail vee with full double concaves the whole way; short (5'4-5'6 are typical) and wide with quad setup, plus an extra plug for the Nubster; Beak nose; super wide tail that's pulled in at the end into a full rounded pin. Kinda hard to explain, but it goes better in our local beachies than the full round tail of the Sweet Potato. EPS/Epoxy. Great, funky little shape...

    Awesome man, i'm almost ready to pick my 1st one up in about a month, just waiting to hear back from MD. 6' 4" Flashback Fish, cross between a HPSB and a Fish, so it's got a very high end, but can do some groveling too, but i'm sure you know all about it if you own 4. You on Sways?

    Anyone ever ride a Lost Monkfish? Looks like that could be a fun summer board. Or a Round Nose Fish?

    I have a bunch of these types of boards. My favorite by far has been the Airglide, Surfboards by Y or "catch surf"
    It is a pretty dope boards. I ride a 5'10 and am 182lbs. This board rips turns, airs, goes fast down the line.. and its not super expensive. Watch the videos on Catchsurf.com

    Thanks Scotty. Versatility is very important. I wish I could afford a different board for every condition, but not in the cards. Want something that will work in the small stuff, but still hold when there is a little size.

    Check out Solid Surf Co. I found a post here and asked what boards they had available. They have a board called the Sasquash that works well in smaller surf but can still handle larger waves. I just got one brand new for $425 and Nick delivered it to me in the Boston area. Very happy with it.
