    Ok, if I had to go with one board and one board only for the rest of my life I'd put all my money on the SwellInfo message board. It's often a rough ride, but it'll get you through any swell and any flat period.

    started surfing in 1965 on the old logs ,went through the shortboard revolution and eventually back to modern performance longboards . they can handle any surf we get in north jersey ,knee to overhead ,barrels or mush . however I recently picked up a bing maui foil 7'4 single fin retro style , contemporary rails and bottom . and loving it . ps I'm 62 and still surf year round so I guess these would be my choices for the rest of my life .

    I just bought a used motivator on Craigslist. 6'0" x 21 x 2 5/8. Only rode it a small day once as a quad and it will catch anything and still go vertical. Can't wait until I shed the 5 mil and ride it more in the spring.

    Either pick one board like the scenario says or dont pick any at all... who needs four 9'+ longboards anyways?

    Would probably be my 5'6 RW, the board has control on any wave.

    You have to consider where you live and surf... you want a board that you can ride in the majority of the waves you get. For around here, it's waist to head high surf. With that in mind... a fish. As long as you stay reasonably fit, it will give you the biggest bang for the buck.
