    4/3 mutant is great, like two suits in one 5mil booties + gloves
    3/2 + 3mil booties
    2 mil top

    5'8" Fish
    6' 6" Zero
    9' Log

    This is my ideal minimum.

    Adding to it a SUP and probably a more high performance board soon... just for fun.
    I have tried to get to "a minimum" and constantly accumulate boards. I think I'm going to give up on keeping the quiver thin.

    Thank you...these "minimum necessary" quivers that contain four surfboards and four wetsuits kind of crack me up. Hits a bit close to home.

    I've got at least a dozen boards, and probably have at least three of them that if i had to only surf that board for the next year, it wouldnt be a major issue.

    just a surfboard is not enough to surf year round. in the northeast, you need at least 2 wetsuits, one with hood, plus at least one pair of boots and gloves. I agree that more than 1 surfboard is really unnecessary. what I think is interesting is what people would pick for that one board. I would err on the longboard side so that I could still surf small days. Some people would rather just skip small days altogether if they had to make that choice and keep the shortboard and only surf occassionally.

    well, the question did contain the phrase, "to surf year round". a surfboard & a pair of trunks might be all that's needed if you live someplace like costa rica or hawaii, but certainly not here in the northeast/midatlantic region.

    Thats true about the wetsuits. Definately need the 5/4 and the 3/2 and 5mm gloves and boots.
    But definately could get by with one board all year. In my quiver right now i have a 5'10" Chemistry Disk quad and a 6'2" Jon Ashton 6'2" quad fishy nose/bat tail. If I surfed 100 days last year, 90-95 of them would have been fine with either of those boards.
