Board/s you've always wanted to try and why

Like most surfers I love trying new boards and tweaking fins etc etc

Interested to hear what new board/s that you've wanted to try and why the design has sparked your interest. Also if you have recently picked up a design you have thought about and if it went well/how you thought it would etc

I have recently bought some away from my main shaper/s (Byrning Spears and Maurice) as I was really keen to see how they went... the two designs have been the Webber desert storm that has been well discussed in here (7'6 and 8'8) and I just picked up a NPJ Duo (6'1) on new years day.

The DS has been great (both boards), they have worked well for primarily the reason I wanted them.... to catch waves double overhead and above with ease. They have also made paddling out to deep water waves and out of the impact zone a much more pleasant task.

I wanted to try a Duo put of curiosity for ages so I ordered one....I now have just had my third surf on the Duo this a.m and am pretty much blown away... speed of a twinny/quad with the hold of a single, loves a bit of push not really a groveler but performs well enough in small stuff (like this am).... super smooth underfoot.... cant wait to get it into some hollow waves as I think it will excel. I'm already thinking a mid length Duo would be a winner for pumping days.

On the bucket list/or to try are: Wayne Lynch widowmaker (I love riding singles from time to time because they make you concentrate on staying in the power source etc... I have heard people rave about Wayne Lynch singles and 2 + 1's and want one for the quiv), Freeflight 10 channel single fin (same reason and they look mean), Von Sol Shadow (looks like an epic groveler/all rounder) .... and I do like the look of the Mayhem tube pig for the reefs at home (couldn't see myself ordering a mass marketed board though)

Anyone have any bucket list boards or good feedback from a newbie?

Damn, I like your taste cycd.
My main board is a byrning spear, while MC's are on my hit list particularly the protow and metro.
I also want to try a duo and now from what you just said, I really want to try the duo out. Those freeflight singles I've been super keen to try too. Would like to compare a 6, 8 and 10 channel to see if I can notice anything, (I doubt I could) :).

Damn straight LD. If I had a spare thousand in the kicker I'd stump up for a Phil Myers Free Flight ten channel singley. I had a beautiful 6'8" six channel AB that was unfortnately snapped. Would love to replace that (obviously gotta be second hand). I've seen a few of Corey Graham's shapes that I really like though don't know model names etc. I've never owned a Mackie fish and have recently seen some incredible versions - I'll add one of those to the list thank you very much. Plus a Mitchell Rae V2, say around 6'6" or 6'8". Then top it off with a Jed Done flex tail twinny.

I've got a Webber modern banana board on order but now that Kelly has upped the ante I've got no idea when Greg will get it made. Stu Paterson is also halfway through making a 5'8"/5'10" asymm for me but we've gotta finalise tail design and fin config.

There's another two from my list. Damn you Corey Graham instagram, haha. And assyms of all shapes and sizes, still haven't tried any, and I'm also still curious in the difference between how MC says he shapes them for lefts or rights yet most others shape them for goofy or natural stance.

That little brown fish Rasta rides in castles in the sky looks too fun and i think would suit me.
Also a Josh dowling 6 channel or 4 channel quad.
Id like to replace a banksy fish i once had that i gave away to a mate in indo- well left it at his house and havent seen it since as i havent made it back there.
I have another banksy round tail fish here but it just doesnt have the squirt (: and feeling as the one i left in indo.
An assymetric for left barrels home shaped which i never got around to as a room mate moved into my spare room.

My current asymm was shaped by Chris Garrett and his theory is wave direction - longer rail off the bottom, shorter rail off the top. I had mine shaped for a right point and so for a few weeks was reluctant to take it out in lefts. Once I did, however, I realised that theory didn't work for me, it's longer rail for toe side (to drive) and shorter rail for heel side (for pivot) irrespective of the wave direction. Fact is, the board goes just as good in lefts as it does in rights. I even surfed it at six foot Cloudbreak in July.

This is the theory I'm sticking with on my next asymm though I'm gonna get a thruster rather than quad.

I had a lovely Byrning Spears channel bottom in the early 90's, bought second hand and I'm pretty sure that it was ridden or at the very least shaped for Kong. I got some of the best tubes of my life on that thing including one burned into my brain at Kirra. My little bro borrowed and snapped it at Kirra. I'd love to replicate that.

Boards I'd like to try/own? MC Metro or ATM and classic Banks semi-gun. I'm not really into retro boards or twinnies but I've got a short, fat, wide twin keel shaped by some bloke down in Chiba which is a ton of fun on the right day.

Hey brother Zen, I'll take any excuse for a trip down the east coast and the missus is looking for any excuse for a camping trip. If you stump the cash, I'll do the drive. The missus is also warming to the idea of a Japan trip, so that would save on freight. Would be part of my baggage. Would you want it in one or two pieces (depends on if I surf thumping Kirra again before I come over). Sorry I snapped your board, man. We've had a habit of doing damage to each others boards over the years (inadvertently of course).

As an additional bit of info, your old Byrning Spears was repaired not long after and bought by an old school mate of mine. The repair was very professional with an additional red spray around the snap area so you couldn't tell. Recently came across an old photo of it (pre snap). A great looking board being held by an ugly mug (me mate, not you this time).

Hey Groundswell, I hope your not charging the same prices as Banksy charges for his second hand boards on his website.

Oh man, I'd love too but FR's last sentence rings true for me too: "Gonna be a tough one to hide."

Got sprung at tax time last year when I got a tap on the shoulder and asked to explain the 24 surfboards I bought through PayPal during the previous 12 months. Two thoughts came immediately to mind, 1) no way I bought 24 boards in the past year (turns out I did), and 2) with a joint bank account how the fuck did I think I was gonna get away with it?

Anyhoo, I hocked a few to pay for my boards currently getting shaped but a $700 AB might be a step too far at this point. Thanks anyway LD.

Nothing wrong with that vintage Groundswell. Got a similar vintage (roughly 1991) 7'0 Robert Fenech Town & Country that I picked up second hand for my first trip to Fiji (also around 91). It's been on multiple Fiji and Indo trips. Wouldn't think of leaving home without packing it. Very dependable board.

Got some time off late Feb into mid March for a drive. Could organise a road trip around then.

Back on topic though, I really liked the look of the 5'9 Mayhem that Taj rode to win the 2013 Trestles comp. I read an article on the dimensions in American Surfer mag (online) and wouldn't mind seeing if can replicate (a little). Would love to give that board a try.

Cheers FR76, remember you mentioning this in the Underground Hero's thread. Might check his boards out if passing through. Have had a couple of nice T & C's over the years. The 7'0 is the only Fenech board I've owned but if his shorty's have as nice a line as the gun, well worth picking one up.

Nah, not enough for a board museum. Even though it may sound a lot to some people I know a few people with waaaay more. My mate Damo keeps his collection squared off at 200 and his is truly a collectable collection. Anyone who's given a thought to the changing face of surfboard design would jump at the sight of his boards, which are fully surfed, curated, and studied. He's even got Jurassic Park experiments happening in his backyard shaping bay where old boards - those in very bad condition - get copied so he can understand how they surf.

Damo had a twenty year jump on most collectors, he scored premium boards for a pittance without any competition. By comparison my late blooming collection is limited in scope but I'm focussing on one area of boards and at present I have very little competition. It's why I'm reluctant to photograph them at the moment.

Don't know if you ever met the older Australian bloke on a kneeboard in that area we both used to lurk around in? He rode that thing in double overhead slabbing barrells. I don't reckon I've seen anyone got that fast on a board before and he could really punch it through when waves would start to pinch. It looks incredibly fun.
