for me without a doubt my favorite small wave board would be my lost rocket..the placebo rockets are fun too, rode my friends 5'5 the other night in some high tide head high-foot overhead waves and got a few nice barrels and 2 little punt kickouts. i definetly wanna try out a white diamond once i get enough cash, the proctor lil rascal 2 and apache also look sick as fuggggg. let me know what gets yalls stoke on during those less than epic days

My JJ loaf goes flying around in micro junk.
Also, my GH fish works well in about waist high stuff.

Cheers,
Havoc

5'8 20" x 2 5/16 used to be my favorite. Now is my friends board. New boards have since filled that gap.
And if things get really small

Peace,
Kyle

Not sure if there was a specific model, think it was a custom for someone on this forum and I just got it used. Its just a short fat bat tail. It rides great(still ride it when I want basically). Has the fins set out towards the rail so I ran all for single foils. Goes vert great and is very skatey. Put that board in some very critical spots. Rocker is fairly flat, but enough to be able to really punt this thing. Always just referred to it as the football, and rode it in everything from knee high to a little overhead in PR one winter, I'll miss it when it dies for sure.



Me riding it in PR^^^

^^^First wave my friend got on it when I first got it, think he wanted it since then.
Peace,
Kyle

The Falcon has always intrigued me and as far as others:

Mandala 2+1 Stubby
Rounded pin twin fin fish/shortboard that a local guy rips on.
Hull designed for beach breaks to be used when I feel like just cruising.
Roberts White Diamond
Stamps Flare
Lost Rocket

Ask me again tomorrow and it will be something different though. Really do not need anything else because my groveling quiver is already pretty substantial.

What I am riding right now:

The "Spot" model by John Belik under the Shimbawa label has been a lot of fun and been getting a lot of use.







Have a Stewart Fart Knocker, Source Scrambler (Hull/Mini-Simmons), Hynson Black Knight II, Shimbawa Custom Mojo and some others that get used depending on how I feel that day.

Really there are too many choices so pick one and have fun.

5'4" GH twin keel
5'8" MC Bonzer 3 fin bumble bee
5'8" Doug Haut double wing bat tail quad
5'2" ...lost RNF, ridden as a twin
5'8" Dick Van Straalen carbon fiber twin, Rastovich keels 5'6" Akila Aipa swallow tail
5'5" Noah Budroe rocket

All of these boards go off in small tiny gutless waves, but also shine in head high plus barrels.
Hard to get big boards to do well in small mush, but these little boards can hang in there with the bigger boards if you need them to.
Best of the bunch lately, the Haut.

small wave killers.

5'8 20 1/2x2 1/2 twin keel
5'9 20 1/8x2 5/8 mf
5'10 20 1/8x 2 1/2 cheater quad/thruster



these all work great in small waves but really shine when the waves are good. the cheat is quickly becoming of of my all time favorites.

the only other boards that interest me at the moment are the roberts white diamond and the grocket
