I have a 6'0" pod quad fin setup and could not be happier. While it does have it's benefits in small waves it really isnt the fish shape that most people think. The nose is pretty pulled in for a fish and thus rides more like a regular shortboard than you would think. Wave catching is excellent and with a decent amount of rocker you can surf it vertically in the pocket of the wave. The quad setup is super fast but you have to compensate for that when trying to snap off the top in sizeable waves. I highly recommend this board and discourage the fishcuit/biscuit route. Those boards have zero rocker and for ocean city surf it causes problems, because the waves here have a tendency to jack up pretty quick.
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
