    So.....had a good conversation today with Brazilnut from Ventura about how many boards and type of boards for the ideal quiver....sort of came up with three as the minimum and maximum.

    1. shorter board
    2. midlength
    3. longer board

    For me, that means: 6'9 McCallum modern Simmons quad (shorter board), 7'6 Aleutian Juice 2 +1 and 8'5 Klaus Jones EVO pin single.....absolutely love this nice tight quiver...

    any other Jammers want to post on their picks?

    9’-3” Hilbers SAM
    9’-9” Hilbers ANT
    10’ 1967 Hannon signature
    These 3 can cover any wave I surf with ease. If it was only that easy to just have 3 boards. :confused:

    Haven't found my perfect 3 board quiver, but it's been fun trying over the last few decades!

    3 Boards right now:
    10' Tyler Point Model
    9'6'' JP Phil Edwards Model
    7'9'' Fowler V-Machine
    Thinking about going a little shorter within the Fowler realm...

    That's funny you mention that....I started with an 8'0 Fowler V-Machine, then 7'8 and finally got it right at 7'4 for me at 185 lbs....much easier to duck dive and more lively without giving up too much paddle power... I think the final dims were:

    7'4, 23, 2 7/8 but nice full rails and I opted for the 5 fin set up, if ever again, I think I would either do a single box or just a Futures quad set up..
