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

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.
