Howzit? I've been surfing for quite a while on standard shortboards. I have a 6'6" for bigger days and a 6'3" that's my go to on everything from knee to overhead. I'm looking at getting a used 5'6" Malwitz Dumpster Diver clone to try something a little different. Volume is around 29L to 30L. I'm 5'11" and #170. Anyone have advice on the differences in handle and feel on a much shorter board? I'm no air maven, but big turns and snaps are my juice.
the shorter board should duck dive much deeper. so try to stay off the bottom, for your fins sake.
