All boards and fins by Huie.
In order of wave size, smallest to largest:

Image
6'6"X 21 7/16" X 2 3/8" double ender. Late 60s template, modern contours. Originally a quad, had the box retrofitted and prefer it as a single. Up to 3 foot fat windswell/Moffats.

Image
5'6" x 20 3/8" x 2 1/2" skateboardy sort of thing, 5 plugs. Peaky low-tide windswell up to 4ft, Fast small pointbreaks.
Only ridden it as a quad, fun as hell.

Image
5'10" x 19 1/2 ish x 2 5/8" ish, quad. Some funny contours going on in the tail, based off yacht design. Means that it doesn't get flighty at high speed despite the wide tail. Sydney beachbreaks up to double overhead with a change of fins.
First board I got from Huie, absolute magic carpet. The one I'd grab if there was a fire.

Image
6'0" x 19" x 2 5/8" I think, thruster. My regular board these days for pointbreaks and beachbreaks from 2-5ft, beefed up a bit for the transition to weekend warrior status. Every time I ride it I like it more.

Image
6'4" x 19 1/2 ish x 2 3/4 ish". 2+1 but I ride it almost exclusively as a single these days. Bigger pointbreak board or for when I need to cover a lot of ground or counter a sweep. Early entry, slices like a scalpel. Quite refined in the tail and stiff from Innegra, got a cork deck on it now to add a bit of weight.

Yes I could get by with just a couple of them, but why?

Not shown:
14ft surf ski.
10'4" SUP for fishing.
Wife's 7'4" mini-mal.
Couple of boats. Couple of kayaks.
Few beaters that live under various houses for travelling.

6'1 PCC 1970's round rail single (wedding present from the wife - only surf it in uncrowded waves as I'm shit scared to ding it)
6'2 Miller waterskate (best board I've owned as a day driver)
6'2 Campbell Brothers 5 fin Mini Merk (being shaped as we speak for the good days)
6'8 Miller Waterskate ( don't surf it much anymore. Can't get rid of my first custom! Cruisey alrounder. Had it in 1ft beaches and 6ft boneyards. Would love a 6'6-6'8 bonzer5 egg to replace this.
7'7 PCC single fin midlength - this board inspired a new thread. Bought in honour of the birth of my first child. Classic versatile shape.
9'6 ECS triple stringer log. Only surf if when its one foot or mega crowded. It's a piece of shit, I hate it, would be great for crescent or Byron, not Sydney beaches. If anyone wants to swap it for an 8'6-9'0 worth $350 get in touch.

Pics will come when the bonzer is ready.

Boo that is a bootiful quiver
The 5 10 quad is it a McKee set up or more rail centric

Haven't measured it, but McKee-like if not the full deal. I think a touch wider spread on the rear fins?

Those fins are the really lightweight super stiff summer slop fins. Carbon fibre and silky oak I think.

Nah, more rail centric and normally run with a bit more fin area. Although in summer I'm going to try out a bunch of fin sets.

My quiver consists of boards i've finished with but are still in ok nick, some of them a bit yellowed and a few dings but still ok to ride, although i don't ride them and can't bring myself to ride them, so i get a new one, thinking.... this will be the one.... and it is..... until the next one, so I'm left with a bunch of boards in the garage that i almost never ride. Thats my quiver.

7'6 mini mal - for tiny gutless conditions, or for when I want coverage and drawn out turns on overhead long flatter faced waves.
7'2 outer islands gun - for reefs at 6 to 8 foot and bigger. Use it a handful of times each year.
6'11 single fin - used mostly at 6 foot plus high energy down the line type surf. Goes great out at wanda thru greenhills, high-lining freight train rights on the big winter south swells.
6'4 thruster - clean conditions, little or no winds, 2 to 6 foot and bowly.
6'3 eighties belly channel thruster - anything from 4 to 6 foot and a bit bigger.
6'0 single - for 2 to 4 foot, well shaped with a nice long wall on it.
6'0 twin - for peaky wind swells up to a little overhead

And the 8'0 gun up front, for when it's massive with water moving everywhere, for early entry, hold, bite, and rail drive. Use it maybe once or twice a year.

Who cares what it cost Iggy, who cares if it cost $1000 or $20000 - do you get some kind of bragging rights for spending a lot or a little ? Who gives a shit.

Nothing worse than some pecker in the lineup who can barely bottom turn talking about the performance aspects of their brand new surfboard.

They all go. And they all go good for me. That's what matters. The rest is just window dressing, fluff and glitter. :wink:
