We asked surfer Joseph “Mr. Excitement” Rickabaugh from Agoura Hills, California, about his favorite boards (for board reference, Joseph is 6’1″ and 160 pounds).

Surf Wanderer:  What is your current favorite board? 

Joseph Rickabaugh: Currently my favorite board would probably be “The Disk” or anything else that Matthew Sparks shapes up from MDS surfboards. The Disk works great at my local surf spot “The Countyline”. I can fly through the flat sections and go vertical and above the lip in the steep sections. I ride the Disk as a quad 5’6” x 19 1/2” x 2 1/4”. 

SW: What kind of waves do you mostly surf in? 

JR: Mostly I surf beach breaks but I love surfing all types of waves. 

SW: If your not surfing that board, what do surf instead/want to surf instead? 

JR: When the waves are firing I ride a 5’10” x 18 ¾’ x 2 1/8’ M.d.s.* Protocol. It’s a great all around shortboard and has been dialed in to suit my style of surfing.  My problem is that I get hooked on one board and can’t get off that particular board to try something new.  That’s now I am right now with “The Disk” its unreal. If I am not riding an MDS than I am definitely without a doubt riding a Wavestorm softtop from Costco.
