Toots,
Where do you surf?
What do you weigh?
When do you usually surf the bonzer.

Assuming the Bonzer would be your board for the bigger cleaner stuff. Then I reckon for smaller junkier waves it's be going a 7'6-7'10 PCC midlength like my green one or going the Jye Burns Crossbreed (haven't ridden one). With a 2+1 setup.

For my 80kg's my 7'7 x 22 x 2.9 is the most versatile board I have it'll handle 1-5ft.

The JD still up for grabs? Could be a collectors item now.

Nah, but I have wrestled with the thought of selling. Why keep it if it's just sitting there, but at the same time its motivation for getting back in the water regularly, and for getting it in some decent waves it's meant for. The keel fish was the pick of the lot for hanging on the wall, beautiful board, but I sold it after a couple of knee ops.

The JD rocker on the middie would test the knee out

Knees strong as mate (surfing wise), it's not the issue. School aged kids and a dragging, never ending house Reno is sucking me dry for spare time. Early light getting earlier and earlier so water time will increase with the early light. Being an average surfer I always find if I have a good run of surfing heaps in summer, I'm much more keen to have a crack in autumn. More fitness more confidence.

Fair play. It's a sweet board for next Autumn

Correct, so I want a quad/2+1 for a bit more snap in beachies. Considering Goddard, Outer Island or perhaps a Christensen Nautilus, which is a stretched out quad fish.

The agony of choice?!?

For the dollars, you can't go past PCC. Experience shaping midlengths is worth it's weight in gold.

These pics of nulla beachies today - poached off biarms digital
Facebook page.

These - are mid length and single fin waves to a fkng tee. I've surfed these beachies many times breaking exactly like this on my middie and single fins. Each time have had a blast, Tearing down the line, Covering ground,'swooping thru carves.
