I have this Neal Purchase Jnr. Quartet. 6'6 x 20 1/4 x 2 7/16 flat deck. Closest thing to a 1 board quiver I've had. Had it out in 1ft slop to 6ft and pumping. Too many boards and just bought another so I put it up for sale yesterday. Guys coming to look at it tonight and I'm not even sure I want to let it go.




Also there's a fair bit of overlap with the McNeill 6'10 twin I posted in another thread so I thought one had to go

Dvs or vouch, Jye Byrne's make good fishes too...

Atm. In that range i have a 6'4 wombat mk 2 that doesn't get ridden enough..
And a 6'8 Christenson Nautilus. That I bought for good waves but seem to ride in anything.

Other than that there currently either fishes below 6ft, mids in 7'2 - 7'4 range, or LBs.

Others In recent memory in the length you mentioned.

Had a 6'8 sumo for a while but I guess you aren't talking minimals.

Had a CI msf that was 6'4. Nice board but a bit narrow in the nose for my liking at that length.

Its a size range that goes under the radar. Normally any board i see in the surfs shops that size is a massive hunk of foam for the big boys.
Ive always thought a board in that range would be good for say a medium size fullish currumbin Alley or the like . Without going midlength

Agree, MR used to make some great SB style boards in that length. Had a beautiful 6'8 pintail in my younger days.

Mistyped above my Nautilus is 6'10.

bit of a fan of this style of outline too..

Goddard does a sweet stick called the Dopamine that is similar to that outline.

He could make you a really nice board I'm sure.

Keep it 100% Australian

The challenge is ... some of us big guys need that "massive hunk of foam", so dependent on your physical size, this board size could be a "mid - length" style board ... at 6'3'' and 95kg.... aging, a 6'6" IS a short board in 2-5ft and sloppy and my 6'10 is not a stepup , its my go to in 3-6ft clean
Have currently
6'6'' allrounder with good volume, (wide point forward, round tail)
6'10 HP (wide point central, square tail)
6.6 x 22 x 3 fish .... friggin love this board

My step us is new 7'3" squash round tail HP

cheers
