    I think I could top most of you and I can't remember a lot of boards. I will have to sit down and really think about this. I do a lot of selling and buying, but let's face it, I could probably bought a brand new $30k Tacoma for what I have spent on boards in the last 10 years.

    For example, last year I bought THREE brand new Christensons. None of which I currently own.

    My head explodes just thinking about this. I'm not even sure of what I currently have. Good for those of you that can remember.

    Found my call to the ocean late in life and probably have the shortest list on the forum:

    1. Short cruddy WRV with a broken nose. (good ding repair practice)
    2. 8’6 South Point epoxy 2+1
    3. 9’0 Wardy remake 2+1
    4. 9’0 Stewart LSP 2+1
    5. 9’10 Stewart Tipster
    6. 9’8 Takayama Model-T *
    7. 6’3 Rich Pavel quad (a brief relationship, unfortunately)
    8. 7’8 Trimcraft re.bowls *

    Can you guess the # on the list where I joined this thing? :D

    I've never had a ton of boards, but here are some...

    1. 9'6" Ole (my first board)
    2. 7'2" Petrillo Gyro (couple boards down)
    3. 6'4" Pacific (thick and paddled like a block of concrete but I liked it)*
    4. 7'6" homemade board single fin.*
    5. 10'0" Velzy (20 years fast forward - custom from 90's, maybe shaped by Dale would like to find out)*
    6. 10'2" and 10'0 custom Infinities
    7. 10'5" Becker Malibu*
    8. 10'8" Harbour Cheater II (was little Al's)*
    9. 10'0" Cooperfish Device (was our son's)*
    10. 10'5" Infinity single fin*
    *still have

    We still have various family boards 70's & 80's and some of our son's boards which include a couple of Hunts and a Hobie Vintage.
