    I have a Rip back zip... they're about $100.

    Go to boards for small summer surf are the twin keeled fish and the log. If it's got some juice, the groveler... basically a flatter, shorter, wider shortboard. The market is flooded with them these days.

    I picked up a Chemistry Disk last spring that i've been riding a lot. Its basically a short wide egg, quad fin setup. 5'10" x 22" x 2 3/8" I could undoubtedly have gone shorter, but by keeping it on the bigger sider i had some real fun sessons in punchy waves this winter in 5 mm rubber.

    When it gets smaller than waist high and soft in the summer, mini simmons are my go to boards. I havent found anything, including a log, that lets you do as much on a 1-2 foot wave.
