    I've got 2 right now (plus a couple of retired boards)

    8'2" Hilbers Hot Generation
    9'4" Vintage G&S

    Looking for an alt short board to round it out... maybe a keel fish or a speed egg. I love glide!

    three boards really is the magic number. something for small to big waves and mush to lined up conditions. its tough to pick one, and the one thing Im sure of is that I would regret my decision as soon as i made it. surfing in RI, this moment I would keep:

    - 6'8" round pin thruster
    -8' single fin egg
    -9'6" wide point back longboard

    I'll change my mind in 5 minutes

    I think it was the Daydream Surf Shop podcast with Andreini where he mentions 3 as the magic number too - 'a hotdogger, a longboard and a board for solid surf' to paraphrase him...

    And the best thing is that they all fit in a van at once.

    2' and onshore
    9'8 Junod Log
    9' Vaquero
    8'4 McVee

    Got a baby coming next month so the quiver will more likely be...

    Changing pad
    Car seat
    Breast Pump (for her, not me, but I guess in a pinch I'd give it a shot)

    This is tough...
    5'8-5'10 Fish or smaller simmons for junk surf
    6'8-7'0 quad fish or pulled in egg(I have a Josh Hall fish Simmons quad at 6'8 and a Mccallum PDX quad at 6'7)
    9'6ish wide point back log
    (if I am allowed to add to 4th board, I'd add a 7'6 egg)

    feets.jpg egg.jpg piggish.jpg asym.jpg feets.jpg egg.jpg piggish.jpg

    ok i'll play. Since i'm a chicken and only surf small waves......

    5'4 GS asym ( or my 5'4 Mandala superchunk which is almost the same thing really)
    9'4 widepoint back modern piggish log with a 4a
    Paipo and fins ( we call them wooden belly boards though!)

    ( 4th would be a 7' ish 2 +1 egg devon howard kind of template)

    Ive often thought a log and some kind of fish is a great two board quiver
