    i'm finding this thread very interesting, as i'm used to posting on the surfermag design forum, which is mostly west coasters & a few scattered east coaster (who i'm seeing now have incredibly open minds).
    i feel like all i've really seen on this thread is big name companies; ...lost, ci, jc, firewire, etc...when there are so many incredibly talented local shapers & companies that, w/ the exception of the firewire tech, could make you any of those boards you wanted & prob. make them better for your particular region of the east coast.
    i pretty much get all my boards from brian wynn...he's literally right down the road. i'll have to see about posting some pics of my quiver, but for now:
    i've got a 5'10" diamond tail that is the spitting image of a rocket/dumpster diver/white diamond. i've got a 6'6" pintail that is a modified ci black beauty outline. my single fin egg shares a template w/ the ci msf, but rides better b/c the bottom contours it has fit the board better than the ci's did.
    i'll be honest here...i ride bonzers mostly, w/ a quad & a pair of single fins thrown in. i hate how thrusters surf in the majority of conditions. so the big companies are generally not an option for me.
    my quiver is expansive & even a tad ridiculous. & i won't lie & say i've never had a board from a big name company. i have & i still do. i think if you've got an open mind & are willing to look around at what's out there, instead of focusing on what the mags tell you is cool, you'll find yourself enjoying surfing more. & that's what it's all about, right?

    Wow if you think they are uncreative I pretty much have what I want with exception of the long board and they are all surftechs
    a rf 6'y6 fish
    a Wayne lynch 7'2 freeform
    6'6 boardworks walden cd
    and a 9'1 herbie Fletcher Tommy Witt
    the only two things I would change would be to add a 6'10 stretch f4
    and a takyama in the pink instead of my Tommy witt
    so there you have it all pop outs all of them

    Speaking of local shapers - I had a 9.0 Heritage that was a GREAT all around board. Brian Heritage can taylor make anything you want without a long wait.

    At 30 years old & 200 lbs. and the fact I surf the Bay and VB, I tend to ride boards with a bit more volume, but...
    1. 6'4 PU round pin shortboard- doesn't matter who- I've have had plenty of good ones for big companies and local shapers
    2. 6'0 PU 7S Super Fish- I know they are pop out machine shapes but they work so good
    3. 5'11 Epoxy Mike Hynson Twinzer- A must for east coast surfers- all doubters and haters must try... on second thought don't so I can continue catching all the waves
    4. 6'6 CI Black Beauty- For fun head high+ days
    5. Hmmm...either a 9'0 PU round pin cruizer shape longboard for the super small summer days or a 6'0 foam INT fish with the rubber fins for shore break shredding

    I haven't seen much love for epoxy as far as top five boards. I have local shapes and buy from local shops ..the REAL shops not the frat boy cool guy hang outs (any one from VB will know which ones I mean) but the average PU board lasts me a year before its full of dings but I have an epoxy that is still watertight 3 years later.
