    You'll notice that the one board I have kept is the good old 9"0" rides knee high to head high!

    I have only rode it a handful of times I actually have been moving towards boards that are shorter and wider, they just work better for me. So its kinda just been sitting there collecting dust.

    yeah i figured you were...i was just being a d*ck plus i think there are actually quite a few people who think all east coast waves are basically the same deal. BTW i agree with mreuther on the shorter wider boards working...

    A 5'7 Diamond tail quad that I shaped myself with the help of Dave Yearwood and got it glassed at Wrightsville Glassing. Just got done yesterday, I'm still anticipating my first ride with this baby. I made it for summer mush but with any luck it may actaully perform on some better waves too.

    A 5'11 Jimmy Keith Whiskey Fish thruster that I ride for basically anything... it's extremely versatile actually. I ride itin anything from waist high to as big wrightsville will get. This board has been through a lot with me since May of last year. It's not too old yet, and is still in great condition, I just hope it stays that way - this board has taught me a lot.

    An 8 foot longboard-ish thing. three fin. I basically learned to surf on this board after trading in a crapy pop-out board for this. I credit it for teaching me how to use the rail of the board and how to turn off my back foot. It's still really fun to ride on small days, and you can actually do some nose rides if you get it dialed. So even after it taught me how to surf and I've moved on to shorter boards, it just keeps coming back and teaching me more things. This board is is a dream to ride when it's knee to waist and glassy, it just glides so well.

    looks like i need a 3 fin.
    the bonzers and minami are fluff at this point,as i'm more into riding In The Eye.
    Scott is an excellent shaper.

    refinement has me considering selling off a 9'4" Bing Silver Spoon,7'0"In The Eye quad,6'6"In The Eye single and 6'5" In The Eye twin fish.

    i've hacked away quite a bit at my quiver quite a bit lately...the 6'4" single fin, the 5'10" dwart, & the 5'10" hsd quad fish have all been sold off.
    my quiver consists almost entirely of bonzers now, except for my log. this is about as minimal as i'm interested in going just now. maybe one day i'll continue to simplify, but i doubt it.
    there's something about the minimalist quiver that appeals to me...a log, a small wave board, & a good wave board...theoretically, that's all you really need on the east coast.
    but it's really fun to experiment w/ other shapes & designs!! :D

    on that note, beachbreak: how do you like the 6 channel single fin? i've been kicking around something similar & having scott build it, since i haven't gotten a board from him in a while.

    njsurfer42-i sent you a message.

    and no,we don't need rehab,we need to keep refining and keep these shapers busy.
    honing and tinkering,learning and growing.
    as we grow in surfing our boards change

    what technically is a bonzer... new to surfing what is the main difference between that and a short board and what is the pro and cons when should you use a bonzer compared to days you would use standard short board. I know its all preference but like just to get an idea.
