Boards I actually ride:
5'9" ...Lost Bottomfeeder
6'0" VEC custom shortboard, very traditional shape with a little extra thickness
6'1" ...Lost Tataki that appears to have finally ridden it's last wave, pretty bad buckle.
On rare occasions... 8'6" WRV mini-LB of some kind, my neighbor pulled it out of his basement and gave it to me.
Almost never ride:
7'6" Stewart mini-LB (first board)
6'10" Sharp Eye similar to what is now the Big Guy (2nd board)
6'4" Watercooled Tour Toned (I know, pop outs suck, I was young and foolish)
5'8" Channel Island MX (way too big for this thing, bought it used for the fins). Side note, anyone in the New England area interested in a beat up MX for dirt cheap?
Stoked to fix:
6'7"ish Lightning Bolt

5'8" bing dharma (on loan from a buddy)
5'10" campbell bros. octafish
6'4" bing bonzer 3
6'4" campbell bros. hpsb (aka "shelter" model)
9'6" wynn si si slider
14' bark prone paddleboard
laying around waiting to be sold:
5'8" lost layzboy $375
5'8" wynn quad fish $500
5'11" roberts white diamond $450
6'2" rusty bali single $375
6'4" ci fort knox $350
octafish gets the most use by far...pretty much my go-to in anything waist-slightly OH (which is why i have so much on the chopping block...trying to go as minimal as possible). i have a couple things on order, but have to sell those boards before those come in. would like to add a 12'6" expedition/touring style SUP for use on the back bays. not interested in using the thing in the surf zone.

All my own. There's no better feeling in the world for me than walking down to the beach from my house, going for a surf, and getting barreled on something that started out as an idea in my head. There is no greater satisfaction in my surfing life, and it's right in my own hands... It's not a wave on the other side of the world in some tropical paradise... it's not sublime perfection from the hands of a shaping legend... it's right out there... fresh of the rack in my garage, and down the street at my local.

I have an Orion (Greg Geiselman) swallow tail 6'6" - it may be an inch shorter now due to many nose dings - that is old an yellow but still surfs in good overhead waves to about chest high. I took it down to Costa Rica and caught DOH plus at the point in Dominical, and it handled it. Also surfed it in perfect lined up Pavones, and here locally at big Reef Road. It's old and dead, and I need to replace it.
My favorite board right now is one I made myself. It is a 6'4" fish, 22" wide, with a fat mini swallow tail. It is really loose, and has a pointed nose, not a round one, so it duckdives really good. It wont go straight, just rail to rail, up and down. It is good on anything choppy, and will float me in 2 foot crap. It starts to get all slidey and sketchy in shoulder high juice. It was made for most of the in between days we get here, when it is too choppy for a longboard and too small for a shortboard. It is really cool to surf on a board home made, and have it work well.
I use my daughter's 9' single fin on those lined up knee to chest high days, but am building a 9'3" hplb that can go out in bigger days so I can hog some sets at the Juno Pier. It will be a rounded pin thruster set up with lots of rocker. I am too busy working, surfing and wasting time on this site to glass it, but it is shaped and ready.
