And more recent...

7'3" Shroom
7'11" Flow
7'11" Speeed
10'0" Style
12'0" Search
14'0" Search
14'0" Faast

How (and why) would you pick only five?


Casso, in small waves, do you prefer the 12' or 14' Search?
Obviously the 12' will be slightly more 'surfable', but I noticed the clip on Sunova's website of you having a dig on the 14'er and looking like it goes good too.

Which is your go to Search?

CSE - if you read this, what's your thoughts? I seem to remember you saying in a thread somewhere you wish you had bought the 12' instead of the 14'?

Cheers all

MangoDingo,
are you needing to revise your quiver with the Point Break option ?

I reckon so Bighugg!
As you know, the Dry has kicked in up here and with that comes very clean days but smaller. When the swell does manage to sneak in its a stack of fun. But you definitely need more length - which is why I was thinking of the Search.
But, sometimes old mate - the universe provides and hey presto! There's the Point Break - just what the doctor ordered - a bona fide Dry Season ripper!
that, or a 12'6 Blue Planet Bump Surfer.
Dunno - either way, I think we're spoilt for choice Bighugg.
Its a nice problem to have though!

For some a quiver is a daily driver and a step up. Several small variants of a favorite board do it for others. For me it is a range of differences.
At 59yo and 92kgs this is an array that yields performance or ease depending on how the ocean looks and how I am feeling.

9-2x28 120l 10-6x31 148l 10-4x28 145l 9-2x30 129l 8-3x30 120l

Looks like you a quad kinda guy.

I have the PSH quad fins like yours and they are a great setup.

Ha ha.... I only asked for the 3 GenRations
They threw in the Placid and the Flash... so I am super psyched about that

B-Dave... it might be cheaper for you to start with the foil
since most never SUP again, after starting Foil.

Me? I love my SUP.... and I ain't switching teams!

My knowledge is sketchy at best... designed for James Casey.
Has good width and volume at shorter sizes, so seems like a good step-down choice!
Very few pics or info about this board...... which is exactly why I asked for one to review.
But I may not get mine till the next container to the Eastern US.... maybe Feb???

Here's a vid of Jimmy making it look loose and fun as

Yep, I actually have a 7 board quiver... here is its current state:
www.seabreeze.com.au/forums/Stand-Up-Paddle/SUP/The-perfect-5-board-quiver--#2287637



Well, now it has evolved to a 5 SUP + 1 SUPfoil quiver, so updating my post :



Organized by length, right to left:

Foil:
- Short, Simmons-like foilboard 6'10" x 30" x 125l (regular Gong AS SUP + addex box & straps) + Gong Allvator foil. Replacement ordered, a Gong Flint 5'10" 135l (The 5'8" 110l should have been my size if I foiled often, but as I only foil in small weak windy waves, I chose some extra volume). With a Gong allvator L + XL Pro foil wings

SUP:
- A fish-like for small and weak waves board 6'10" x 31.5" x 125l (Gong One). Fins: Quobba L fronts, M rear, and a nubster to tame it a bit
- Powerful board with max acceleration, small/medium punchy waves 7'3" x 29.75" x 105l (Gong Fatal). Fins: Quobba L fronts + M center
- Main performance summer board (when I am fit and short wetsuit) Gong Alley 7'8" x 27"3/4 x 105l. Insane board, works on everything. Fins: Quobba L
- Same, oversized for bumpy/fat/windy conditions, or in winter with the full wetsuit 8'1" x 29"1/4" x 120l. If was to have only one board, this would be it. Fins: Quobba L
- A board with more speed and carve, with a bit of a longboard glide: Gong Karmen 8'4" x 30" x 120l. Fins: Quobba L fronts + M center

Leashes are O&E One XT, and the FCS freedom on the small wave board (the One). Waist + coiled on the foilboard

I use a Gong Pro 8" carbon paddle, cut to my height.
