The Killer Quiver?
 
That duffy/shredstixx/chaos thread got me thinking. RJ and I love getting many different types of boards and seeing how they work behind our boat(s). Whether its RJ riding, or teaching a newb, which we love to do. So as a wakesurf boat owner, depending on who you ride with or how you surf, what is your Killer Quiver? Money not being a consideration, what would be the boards you felt you had to always have on your boat? No need to bash any brand or anything, just for fun.

I asked RJ, here is what he said:
  1. His favorite custom Soulcraft Jetty, probably the 4.8 fangtail at the moment. (3-2-1 twinzer setup)
  2. 4.8 SS Hazen, hopefully the new custom chaos version coming to replace the one he has been riding. Using same fins that CK Jr uses. Can't remember the name. The ones it came with didn't work well.

I was kinda surprised, thought he would add a couple more, but he said those are his favs, and that they surf so differently, its fun to go from one to the other. But he said he had a couple other for consideration.

  1. The new Walker Project Signature edition. It looks like it has evolved from the version he had, and he can't wait to try one, he loved his first one.
  2. Inland Surfer Sweet Spot Pro. He had a lot of fun on this board, and it surprised him a lot that it felt heavy, yet he could fly it well. For a production board, pretty cool.

Now for me as the host/boat owner, I have a lot more people to please. From my 6 yr old Jesse all the way up and then friends like Frank Wolter and Dennis.
  1. The Walker Project Grom with thruster setup. You can't beat this board for little ones, so light but performs well. Easy to flip, not very floaty. Jesse's favorite.
  2. Shredstixx Nano in thruster. Its too floaty for little ones like Jesse, and not as fast down the line as the Grom, but Thomas has great control with it, and he loves it. The thrusters on both of these boards are great because you can take out the back fin once the rider gets better, and its a new board.
  3. Soulcraft Jetty 4.10 with twinzer and additional back fin. This will ride guys in the low 200s with a big wake like ours and works great. The cool thing with this board is you put the back fin in and we taught many people on this board and SUPER stable. Then pop the back fin out and guys like RJ and Chase can seriously rip it up. The extra fin box may add a tad of drag or weight, but not enough to be noticeable to RJ.
  4. Inland Surfer Sweet Spot Pro and buy the extra fins. Same thing, put in all fins to teach, then pull them out to rip it up. This is a real fun board with everyone we have thrown it out to. This is also a great "boat board". Easy rides up to 250 or more on a decent wake, yet 150lb guy like RJ can rip it. Also easy to buy.
  5. The Walker Project Bazooka, like a 5.3 big enough for 350lbs. To date, haven't seen any big guy boards that make fat guys smile like the bazooka does. Oh yeah, tall heavy guys like SlimJim too. ;-)

Anyway, thats a long list, but we really do need all those boards with our large family and guests. Not trying to leave out skim or anything, just don't do that much unless mitch or sean is out with us. But no worries, what is your favorite board list for your boat? Remember, money is no object, only rackspace.

My board: Original Fly Boy. I still have not ridden a board that even compares (at least for me)
Boat board: Inland Surfer Blue Lake (quad fin). Still feel like an idiot for selling mine.

Boards I would like to spend more time on: Any that somebody will let me ride that are light and fast. There are so many good boards out now. Especially from the custom guys. My only issue is how $ they are becoming and how fragile they are.

ragboy 02-29-2012 9:03 PM

yeah, that original flyboy was an amazing board. I still remember holding that thing out with an extended arm the first time, how light it is, and yet strong.

Slayshtank did a "quiver corner" a few years back. Here is a link. My favorite is Johnny. That has to be the best "quiver" of all time!

Johnny does have some nice toys, but I only see three Wake Surf boards, and two ocean boards. The rest are just toys. How can you include a moto cross bike into your "Quiver"?

Quiver
Possession of a number of surfboards combining various lengths, templates, rockers, and bottom contours suited to varying types of surf. Surfing A-Z

I've accumulated a decent quiver, thinking of adding the Keenen Flegel Pro Model [*Not pictured: IS Blue Lake] - the board on the left is a Flyboy prototype from Jeff Walker he sent me late last Summer, and the Shred Stixx Custom was shaped by Rusty and has carbon fiber rails and iBeam. My favorite is the Flyboy prototype!

wofrankwo 03-02-2012 9:18 AM

We also have 6 ocean boards: 11'6" infinity longboard tandem, 9'2" playboy tribal longboard, 9' channel islands fish big guy shortboard, 6'5" bz shortboard thruster w/ glass on fins, 6'2" rusty piranha quad surf tech,merrick eagle wing 6'1" thruster

not so bad for being landlocked ...... picture of all would be pretty cool!!

ragboy 03-02-2012 11:45 AM

@anderson nice pic and nice quiver! Nice to see them all lined up. I should take a picture of this one wall in our hay barn, kinda nuts.

My IS Black Pearl, for me
CWB Tsunami for newbies ( seems like I have never had anyone not be able to get up on this board)
Ronix Koal for whom ever wants to ride it.
And of course the Nubbin Ragboy gave me last year for beginners.
And if I can ever get some spare cash, a custom Soulcraft built just for me! ( surf style )
itsme, that is a great selection! are you sure this isn't the local surf shop?? J/K
