I moved to south Florida a couple years ago from San Diego. I bought a firewire sweet potato for the smaller surf. The board was a great go to for the smaller conditions...super rippable and floats over all the flat sections. I moved back to San Diego six months ago and still use the sweet potato more than any other board in my quiver...up to head high. I have been surfing mostly reef breaks and the potato absolutely kills it! I'm 6'3 and ride a 5'4 sweet potato. The new timbertek baked potato looks insane...I want one so bad but can't justify spending $700 on a board so similar to the one I got!
