.... hmmmm, where to start.
A lot of neat boards on that list...
At my size (6'5"), the only sub-six foot board that I ever enjoyed was a 5'8" G&S twin that my friends thought was so-out-of-date in around '84. It was a buddy's who wouldn't sell it, wouldn't ride it out of shame, but let me ride it a bit. That board got me carving figure eights all the way to the beach at the Pumphouse and really jumpstarted my surfing.
jeeze... probably better fun to ask how many jamboarders have or have had one of my old boards.
I used to keep track.
All I can say for sure is a lot less than Vet.
Funny thing is it's only been the last 15 years or so that I've made it a mission to try acquire and surf anything that interested me. Living in the northeast where quality used boards are few and far between meant that most of boards I've owned were acquired new. (...if only I'd bought Apple or Google stock)
Before that it was 2 boards: a Takayama Double Ender and a Mabile (KG label) twinzer long fish.
Before that an 10' Olympic speed shape by Bob English
Before that a Plastic Fantastic bonzer
Before that a pair of Churchills
now let's list cars lol
