Obviously your quiver is always being refined as fitness waxes and wanes, weight gets added and dropped, the things you look to do on a wave varies and just boredom and need to mix things up. I thought I'd post what I have, why, and where I'm headed. So, for winter (now) I'm tending to use more foamed up boards. Pre work surfs end some time early May and I don't do much exercise other than surfing. Also, I do post grad study in addition to working so I do a fair bit of Tim Tam and chocolate monte consumption while I cram for exams. Less fitness, more weight and wetties mean more foam. So for winter my good wave board is again a 6'8" Alternator and small wave board is a 6'4" Dom. Both are paired up with K3 fins. I could use a touch less volume but given all the other factors they're pretty good. Summer/autumn/spring? I surf more. I'm fitter. So a touch less volume. The every day board is a 6'4" Unibrow. A great every day board. My good wave board is a 6'6" Q5. It's a phenomenal board. I love it. Both with Kinetic Racing Parko fins. Where am I headed? Well, aside from my longboard I'm going to go exclusively Firewire. Come Spring I'll be selling my last standard construction shortboard, and selling my 6'4" Futura. I'll be getting a 6'2" Dom, which is probably the better size for me for small waves in all but the tiniest days. The Dom is also a super easy transition to the UB. Chris says the UB could be a Dom replacement and that's true, but the Dom does have that better acceleration in really small waves. There you go!

Your quiver and why?
