dumpster divers anyone?

  • Was walking by burton after work today and saw in the corner of my eye some surfboards. Went in to check it out, turns out they had a full line of merricks since may, but i never noticed them cuz I don't go down spring st that much. Anyway was looking through em and saw a nice board called the "dumpster diver". Looks like a perfect board for our type waves. Looked at reviews and it says good for the small stuff, but that "small stuff" might be our good waist to chest high perfection days.

    Anyone ride one of these bad boys and has some real east coast reviews about it?

  • I've tried both a DD and the Sub-Scorcher a few months ago and couldn't decide which to get... Decided on getting a Sub-Scorcher and if sized right I like it better than the DD. Dane sure makes a good argument for the DD though  :P

  • the dumpster diver is one of my favorite boards ive ever had... what i like about it is that it has the float and speed of my fish but surfs like my regular shortboard so transitioning back and forth between the two is easy.   

    ive tried the sub scorcher and its a great board too but i fell into a great deal for the DD and you wont be disappointed - it generates so much speed and i find myself doing turns on this thing that i would never stick on my normal board...

    my dimensions: 5'9, 160lbs
    my dumpster diver's dims: 5'7 x 19.75 x 2-5/16
    my normal shortboard dims: 6'0 x 18.75 x 2.3
    I got it used off craigslist for $350 (practically new) otherwise i would have gone even smaller because the board has so much volume. 
    you'll be smiling from ear to ear with that board!!

    Agree with boyeee... Could have probably gone a couple inches shorter, but still very happy with the float. Board turns on a dime too!!

  • im digging the gravy, thinking of having nature shapes or Faktion make me something similair in a 5'3-5'5


    and seacliff dont go by Unsound, the temptation to purchase the DD will overwhelm you, I think Dave said they got 12 new ones in last week.
