5'6" old school fish
5'10" firewire quadraflex
6'1" webber ? -with extra length and rocker for when it's mackin
10'ish single fin waterlogged monster from the 60's
a step up
3 deep...6'3 Channel Islands Flyer I use for the larger stuff 6' quad-fin Firewire Quadraflex I just got that I've only used a few times, great for small-a few feet overhead. Then 7'2 funshape I will use for the ankle slappers in the summer
6'2" Greenroom Whiskey Fish. Thick and wide, swallow tail. Local shape, my go to shortboard for almost any day, fat and wide to get going on mushy little waves. Amazing board. A bit too long though.
6'5" Hickman squash tail. I ride this board when the waves start tipping head high, when I need something with a bit more length. Real old so I don't feel bad about banging it around or anything. This is the board my dad taught me to surf on. It used to be his.
7'2" Walden Mini Magic model. A longboard shape/style board minus about three feet. I got this several years ago and my surfing improved exponentially because it enabled me to catch waves on my own. I still ride it occasionally. Easy to walk on.
7'6" Takayama Egg. A fun mid-range board. Kind of a weird shape, and egg with a nice pintail. Tracks well when the waves are bigger, catches and turns easy when it's small. Fun with sidebites or as a singlefin.
9'6" Alison high-performance longboard. This is the board that I was introduced to longboarding on. Not great for walking, but a very forgiving transition and a wave catching machine. I've had more fun sessions on this board than any other listed here.
9'8" Hobie. Shaped in the early 60's. Picked it up relatively cheap and fixed it up. Big, wide, thick, heavy, truly a classic log. Big D-fin made of redwood. Ten times harder to ride than any other board, but ten times more rewarding as well. This is my favorite board of all.
So I have a quiver of 6.
