Default How many boards in your quiver?

I am wondering how many of you have a "quiver" of snowboards, rather than just one board.
Different brands, different profiles (camber, rocker, hybrid, etc.), different purposes (powder, carving, freestyle, park/jib), different flex/stiffness, different shape (true twin, directional twin, directional, tapered...).

So how many boards do you own?
Why do you have more than one?
Which one(s) for which purpose?


And if anyone knows, how do I set this up as a survey on the main page?

Thanks.

One Hovercraft for powder, a Yes pick your line for everyday, and a K2 Fatbob for old times sake. Going to be getting a longer gnu Billy Goat next year for speed.

For this season I just had a Rome reverb rocker but as I only carve and ride powder I'm going to be getting a never summer raptor or yes pick your line for next season.

3 decks in the quiver

Why 3? I ride on the ice coast, therefore:

1 Rossi One Magtek to deal with the ice coast 9 days out of ten. My go to deck. RCR profile.

1 Lando Phoenix to ride on the softer days when the bite of the Rossi MT is too much. Mostly spring. CRC profile. Least fav of the three, bit of a heavy weight

1 Burton Barracuda for the ever elusive pow day. Burton S Rocker, camber between your feet, big rocker from front foot forward. Lots of fun in pow and soft conditions.

2 here. Both park boards
Rome artifact mostly for rails and messing around
Rome Graft more for jumps

I really don't need 2 boards at a time, but I wanna be that guy who collects boards and has 50 hanging on his living room wall when I'm older.

145 ride from 93' - back yard jib deck
154 k2 fastplant - park board
157 signal OG - cambered carving board
159 skate banana - fun mess around, little bit of pow stick
162 k2 gyrator - freestyle pow surfer
165 lib tech snow mullet - deep pow makes snowboarding easy board

167 salomon and 159 m3 diy split boards
99 skidoo summit 500 (not a board but part of the quiver, cost less than some boards)

tele
185 k2 lite telemark
175 work stinx

i've rode them all this year, the skate banana gets the most days cause it does everything pretty well

looking to add a split no board to the quiver if grassroots would make me one

out of the five roommates we have around 40 decks in the house, and five pairs of skis but no one "skis"

157 HP Trice- short, playfull and fast
159 Attack Banana- playfull, loose and soft
159 Hot Knife- aggressive, carvy, stable and fast
161 HP Trice- powder, big mountain and carving
162 Smokin Superpark- powder, rocks, trees and anything else in the way
164 Hp Trice- deep powder, big everything and rarely ridden
180 Grocer- deeeeeep powder, massive slashes and top speeds

There's also a couple of samples and test boards laying around at any given time, but I only ride those on "work" days. Also not listing the boards in the collection I don't ride anymore.

As of the count this morning 47 2014 decks ranging in the XV from Rossi all the way down to the Arbor Formula. Then there's a grip of art decks in the hall about 4, a stack of occasional decks which is at last count like 12, there's the graveyard of boards under my bed which is about 9, and then there's the misc. decks in my corner that's 3 or 4, and the couch critter living with us has 4 decks in the hall closet.

NS Proto for everyday use
Capita Charlie Slasher for pow days
Venture Divide splitboard that's used for skinning around the neighborhood because I haven't had time to do shit on the backcountry side of things this season
