Default Surfing Champion

My Story:
I had posted earlier about missing out on the Boats and Buoys daily challenge. I didn't tell the rest of the story. About five days later I won the Catch a Wave challenge with 500,072 points. Where I had gotten unlucky earlier on the time, this time around it worked out perfectly. I started about an hour and a half before the time limit. I had worked out the best controls to use earlier in the day - which helped a lot - and I figured it out along the way. My previous best score was under 100,000, but this time I marathoned until 11:59 Eastern time. Then, I crashed three times quickly, checked the scoreboard and logged out. The rest is history

After you last for any length of time, you can't outrun the wave when you play your next man, so you a have to score it on one life. I didn't know it was going to take that long. My arm was dying about 30 minutes into it. I switched fingers, then I switched hands, but I almost crashed so I switched back. It's mental, just hang on.

I love surfing, although I've only done it once. I think it's cool to be a pretend surfing champion. My plaque has a place of honor in my bedroom.

Question:
What I'm wondering is how many surf boards have there been in Bearville history? I know of one accessory version, and one furniture version (Rainbow surfboard), but there may have been more accessory versions. I'm not too worried about getting one eventually. It seems like the kind of item that will rotate back into the store eventually. Thanks in advance to those in the know.

I saw the Boats champion, AsherGiggly, online later and congratulated him. It's fun to have a couple of minutes as a mini-celebrity. I got 6 friend requests the day I won. I'll try to win next year and grow my fan club to ten!

Sweet score. Cubgratulations! Yeah I can relate - I received 10+ incoming friend requests in the BearMail. Regarding surfboards, there was also a JCBG surfboard which was previously sold in the HQ a few years ago.
