I am about 5'10" and i weigh about 130. Im thinking about either getting a 5'6" Dumpster Diver, or a 5'5" Pod. Any suggestions? I want a board that can turn and at the same time catch tiny knee high waves easily. Thanks

What is the best small wave board out there?
5'9" 7S superfish and itll prob last alot longer than the designer thin glassed boards. I have the 6'3'' and it is nuts. Dont go too short. Ur not dane renolds and ull prob put on weight at some point.
you should go to 7th Street ,KONA, or Easternlines and check out the Randazzo Industries, look for the lil Joe, Pork Frog, & Chop Sue Wii, & Mysto, and order a Custom, we can dail you in with a board made for you, and a big plus is every custom i keep the file so can email or skype me and make any adjustments you may want in the future .
We would be stoked to make what you want.

Got the pork frog in the summer. Super high performance in little surf, a thinner board but makes up for it in width. This thing is really fast and also has a 5-fin setup. I ride it up to about solid chest-shoulderish high surf.

Stop by Greenlight at take the Groveler for a test drive. Designed and built for the smallest rideable local surf we get. I think the one in the shop is a 5'8, but you can custom a smaller one. I've been out on days and have said to myself, "man... I wish I had that Groveler right now."

I know it's not what you're getting at here, but I really think everybody should have a longboard in their quiver for the knee high days, maybe with a pintail for ease of turn.
If you insist on a shorter board, though, I'd talk to somebody local instead of paying a bunch of money for a board that won't last as long or work as well in our surf...
I second that. If you want to ride knee high surf get a longboard. Whenever I see guys trying to ride small waves on shorter boards it just looks so frustrating and not fun.

dumpster diver--and all other versions--should be renamed "the gimmick"
get a longboard for those conditions.
