    I went minimalist this season, cut the quiver down from 7 boards to 3.
    6-2 mini simmons (in the shapers factory being built) by Mystic for 90% of the east Florida swells we get
    7-0 big guy shortboard by Stu Sharpe when it's too big or choppy for the mini
    10-2 singlefin log for when I wanna go logjammin

    7'10" Turbeville funshape - Board I first learned on, still have it and use it on the small summer days.
    6'6" JC Equalizer - A good step up board for the bigger days. I buckled it on a well OH day but it's still surfable.
    6'2" JS squash tail - My go to all around shortboard.
    6'2" JS rounded pintail - My toothpick board. Sits and collects dust for the most part.
    6'0" Brian Wynn swallowtail - Newest board to the group, only surfed once. Shaped for good knee-waist days.
    5'8" Channel Islands Fiscuit - This board is the sh!t. Plenty of speed with the quad setup, rideable in mush to head high.

    I currently possess a 8'4,6'8,6'4,6'2.iv always wanted to ride one of them small biscuit looking boards that's like a 5'5 but I think im too tall.my 6'2 comes up to the bottom of my neck,either the diminsions are wrong or idk because im not 6'10,im a solid 6ft.i had a 7'2 gun but traded it in because the waves never got that big to ride a gun.the 6'2 is my everyday board,the 6'8 is my step up for big solid 8ft(23ft Belmar( days.all my boards have massive dings I need to fix except the 6'2 so that's why I stick with that.

    id love to surf on a real surfboard like a ci or lost.all my boards are bs companies I nevr even heard of.maybe they were big in the 80s,anybody ever hear of "croyle?"

    Beware of the big names that mass produce boards. I've been through too many of them due to poor build quality. I had a lost round nose fish and the glass job on it was like paper thin. I got a new ding literally every time I went out. And I'm not talking normal pressure dings from wear and tear, legit holes into the foam. After fixing it over and over again, I said eff it when the leash plug popped out on a knee-waist day on my first wave and had to swim all the way in. The glass job on my JC was solid when I bought it, but after like 2 years of use it started to slightly delaminate and it buckled on a bigger day. I still have that board and I'm waiting for the day to take it out and have it snap in 2 on me. My two JS' have been pretty solid in all areas though, no real complaints so I gotta give it to the Aussie's on that one. But for the most part I feel like it's hit or miss with the big name brand boards. You can get a gem, or you can get a dud... Just my two cents.

    I'd prefer to support local shapers more from now on, or browse the used board rack more looking for something in good shape that I won't be upset if something happens to it as I would if I blew $700 bucks on a brand new board.

    Don't have any good pics of my boards... but here's one that's pretty much the same model as my 6'6 in a 6'0 I did recently for a fellow SI member... Not too good with the uploading... sorry

    9'6 Allison log. My first board still kickin. Has various forms of cancer but refuses to die and is still fun. Has easily ridden 5,000 waves and at least 50 people have surfed it.

    6' Perfection fish....getting pretty old. Been all around central America. Thin rails was fun in its time
    6' Sharp Eye disco. Fun board. Got some big ones in Mex with it. Wish it was an inch or 2 longer
    5'4" Sweet potater....love this board. Only really ride it and my log these days but I need one more board for good waves.

    5;10 OP single fin...more or less a wall hanger
    5'8 yellow "surfboards by Don" single fin. Looks and rides like a banana....cost 60$
