Our board designs are direct results of team feedback, so when Dane showed up at the factory in early 2010 requesting a short wide epoxy with single concave and a huge square tail to make the summer bearable, the Dumpster Diver was born. When he came back a week later and wanted one with a narrower nose and a Rookie tail template for the Trestles contest in 3 days, the 2nd Generation Dumpster Diver was created and remained under his feet all the way through to his first final at the WCT Trestles 2009. Voted SIMA board of the year for 2010.
The Dumpster has a ton of curve in a short package, so stick to the pocket and keep it on rail. Ride 1” to 4” shorter than your height.

- Channel Islands - 5'10'' Dumpster Diver Surfboard Perfect performance groveler for someone wanting to make the most of less than stellar surf.Review by Spencer Spencer
RatingI am 6'1" and weigh 185 pounds and was a little weary about picking up 5'10" shortboard for small summer surf. However, what the Dumpster Diver lacks in length, it makes up for in width and thickness. This board is perfect for someone looking to maximize their small surf sessions without having to wax up a fish or a log. The widepoint is forward allowing this board to skate over flat sections. Also, the rookie tail on this bad boy has enough kick in it to allow you to carve in the pocket. Having this board in your quiver will make small/mushy days that you'd normally overlook not only manageable, but fun!(Posted on 9/30/2014) 2014-09-30
