Hey everyone, I would say that I am a novice surfer. I'm nearly 5'9, and I weigh aobut 140lbs. I live in North Carolina where the surf is typically 1ft-3ft, occasionally 5ft+. I currently ride a 6'1 flyer, but I know I can go much shorter. My friend has a CI dumpster diver that he loves. I have also heard great things about the CI neck beard. I would trade in my flyer to get a new board.

Anyone have experience with both these boards? How do they stack up to each other? Which one would be best for me to get, given the conditions I listed above?

I was looking at a 5'6 beard, or 5'6 dumpster. Let me know what you guys think. I am also open to other board suggestions.

Thanks a lot!
