    I'll play, in no particular order:
    9'6" Frierson semi gun-my go to big wave board.
    9'8" Justin Quintal nose rider by Ricky Carroll- rare epoxy, I ride this when I don't ride the 9"6"
    10' Justin Quintal pig model by Ricky Carroll-(known locally as the Snout rider). Volan glass, epoxy blank so it's mid weight. My small wave board.
    10' Hobie Terry Martin Vintage. Sold it years ago, wish I still had it.
    9'2" Donald Takayama Noserider. Got it directly from Donald back in the early '80s. It was well loved and used hard.

    Here are the top 5 longboards I have owned, from current to older:
    10' Phillips Pig, current daily driver, excellent board
    10'4" Phillips Ka Po'e Ae'a, current board for bigger days, another excellent board
    9'8" Surfboards Encinitas custom noserider, left in Costa Rica
    9'10" Bob White Pig, shaped in about 1966-67, I bought in about 1980 on a business trip back east, taken to San Diego after business and ridden in North County from 1980 till about 85. This is the best ridding board I have owned. Left with brother in San Diego, he moved and left the board.
    9'8" Surfboards Hawaii Model A, bought new in 1968(?) in Virginia Beach, sure did nose ride.

    9'4 Christenson Flathead. I sold it earlier this fall in a fit of board-buying craziness. I had immediate seller's remorse. Then one day I was going through my nerd surf journal to count up how many days I had surfed this year...(171 today)...and 90% of my sessions were on the Christenson. I emailed the forum member I sold it to and begged and pleaded for him to sell it back to me, which he graciously did!
