i was ganna get a ci pod but I ended up with a Lost round nose fish, it is perfect on the smaller days and can handel head high conditions, its 5'8 tall 2 1/2" thick and im 6'3 so if you get a pod or rnf def down size a bit, about 4 or 6 inches.
I have one very fun in crap or small waves, it keeps me off a longboard alot in the summer. My only complaint is I wish I had purchased the tri instead of the quad, but thats just my opinion. Worth the $ to milk most out of typical summer wind slop.
i got the 5 10 pod tri fin. great board easy paddle. fast. not to heavy. not very loose though. fun for summer. it will handle up to around a few feet overhead. if it gets any bigger then when you drop in the board will just take down the line so fast and youll lose control
