[b]What board do you ride the most (specifically), and how do you rate it?[/b]

The board I ride the most right now is a 6'2" X 18.5" 2.28" Rounded Square Tri-Fin, it's got slight single concave with vee in the tail. I like the board, it turns fast, but isn't a good board if your into surfing stomach high or less. It can hold in surf as big as 10 ft, any bigger than that, and I go over to my 6'8 X 18.5" 2.28" Pintail and that thing can rip in bigger surf.

[b]This is my longboard.[/b]

There are many like it, but this one is mine. My longboard is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My longboard, without me, is useless. Without my board, I am useless. I must ride my board true. I must drop in on a kook who is trying to drop in on me. I will...So be it! Until there is no enemy but peace!

oops! sorry, too much 'Full Metal Jacket' viewings! :oops: I have a 7'6" fish and a 7'4" hybrid, that i just dont have the same familiarity with as my longboard. But when the waves pick up a little, the fish has a double concave that's just built for speed on punchy beachbreak waves!

my own shape. 6'0" x 18.75 round pin 4 fin. great board. ive been riding 4 fins for 10 years cuz they r faster and looser than anything i have ever ridden in my 22 years of surfing.

Quad fins?? rode them 15 years ago. They were very much the thing here in jax bch fla for quite sometime. Very loose, fun in small to medium surf. I wouldn't attempt LARGE surf with it though. I almost drowned one year taking one out into a hurricane. Much too loose to take down a big wave.

My favorite board at the current time is a 6'6 jeff klugel thruster. I also have a thing for my old mans longboard. 10'0 bob white. Circa 1960's. too many to name with a special place in my heart!!
