7'2 x 20 5/8 x 2 3/4 Russ Short round pin B5

The smoothest, most intuitive board I have ever ridden from trimming down the line on weaker but decent days, to outside hurricane set waves - off and onshore wind - you can feel it just eating up the Energy and power with no end to it's appetite.
Glide into bombs with stupid confidence.
Just an unreal joy to surf.

5'11"x 19 1/2"x 2 5/16" quad shortboard from DJ Kane

I've had it since 2018 but had a baby at that time and broke my leg in 2020 so I had been riding boards with more foam but I've been riding this 9x out of 10 lately. Super fast and I feel like a good surfer riding it.

Right now? Based on the waves we had over the past two weeks, I can narrow it down to these three.

6'0" OG MTF for the tubes.

5'8" Maurice Cole Reverse Vee for the tight shredz.

7'4" Mandala Clandestino for the steeze and hipster street cred.

Can't get off of this thing...Rode it in Nica and love it in hatteras for big tubes when you need the paddle power. Just fcked it up at the (Assateague) jetty, but pretty minor (fins got the worst of it). 5'10 19 7/8 x 2 1/2

I guess the one that gets me the most excited is this one because it's for my favorite size waves (thigh to head high). As I said before it's hard to chose one cause my new working quiver is just insane, with each board being amazing. But there's just something about this wild and crazy girl:

Super easy. I have 4 boards from DJ. He answers emails in like a day or two, is easy to work with and down to earth. I'll let him know what I want in detail via email, he gives me a quote and then I meet with him at his factory with my order card ready. There we talk about the board some more and then he lets me know when its ready. He totally nailed it each time. The two shortboards I have from him are two of the best I've ever had.
