My stack of wave sliding toys.

As your surfing grows so does your collection of wave sliding toys. Bonga Perkins said by riding different boards your surfing skills will inevitably grow due to the way each surfboard performs on a wave. I agree with his statement and remember when I was surfing thruster shortboards and bought an 8'0" fun shape. For one thing living in Florida we get a lot more waves where bigger boards provide more wave time. And with more wave time the better your surfing skills become. As time went on I began walking on my 8'0" fun shape to position myself into better spots on a wave. After the good vibe from the fun shape rides I decided to get a custom shortboard shaped for me. When I first got the 6'10" Thruster it worked great, had a lot of paddle power and good manuverability. During a trip to Costa Rica with a group of surfers I had brought my 6'10" shortboard and 8'0" fun shape. While at Boca Barranca I was given the opportunity to ride a 10'0" longboard. I loved the effortless glide and momentum the log provided. From that point forward I was hooked on riding different style boards.

Shortly after returning from Costa Rica I went on a hunt to find a longboard. Driving and stopping at each Central East Coast Surf Shop I finally made a choice on a red bottom deck, red railed with white deck, one balsa and two graphite stringer 10'0" Square Tail, Single Fin Noserider. The board worked well in all conditions from knee high dribble to overhead speedies. I put a Wingnut Cutaway fin on the board which made it super manuverable and allowed me to do things on it I didn't know logs were capable of doing. The 10'0" Noserider got beat up though the years especially one time when driving down the highway and the strap came loose and the board went ghost surfing in oncoming traffic. What a heart breaker moment that was. I had it fixed as it didn't snap in half but sustained major damage so now it's relagated to specific tasks; back up board, a board my son rides and one for others to learn how to surf.
