I have long held myself to maintaining a three board quiver. Both out of practicality and as a measure of restraint. It makes it tricky when friends want to borrow demo boards, as I don't tend to keep a ton around the house, but it does allow me to be very mindful of which boards I keep in my quiver. When you only have three boards, they each need to fill a defined purpose and need.
Right now, I've got a 9'2 Surf Thump, a 6'6 Pleasant Pheasant and a 5'2 Secret Menu. That pretty much keeps me covered for day-to-day surf needs, and each board provides a distinctly unique approach and experience. Obviously I have spread my options out quite a bit, between a longboard, mid-length and shortboard.
What would your 3 board quiver be?
