Long before the phrase ''One board quiver'' was part of Surfing's lexicon, I was searching for that one surfboard that does it all. I'm sure many others were too. I wanted a board that would function well, in ANY wave I was interested in riding. So, what was I interested in riding? Nothing in the one to two foot range. But, at three foot and up, I'd expect to have some fun. It's the UP, that I was most interested in. Home beach, on the mainland was WindanSea. On Oahu, I had lived at both Sunset, and on the point at Makaha. So, that was my general target range. Three to four foot mainland waves, up to 15 foot Hawaiian size. All on the same board, Did I pull it off? Yes I did. Waves 20 feet and over, I still would ride a classic big wave gun. The one board for me, that did it all, was 7' 10'' x 21'' to a 7 inch square tail. Weight, 12.5 pounds. Low rail, all around, and hard and sharp in the tail. The general design was a classic big wave gun, that had the tail chopped off at 7 inches wide, and the nose chopped off to the finished board length. Redraw the nose, to a 14 inch width, and true up the outline. That final layout and design was completed in the summer of 1969. I rode that board for the next 15 plus years, it was that good. Ultimately it was donated to S H F. Now aka S H A A C. The foregoing, is just a bit of personal surfing history. I hope it gets you thinking about your next surfboard building adventure.
