    delmarsurfer, knee to waist high would depend on swell period & tide conditions. If the swell had a lot of power too it, swell period around the 10sec mark or more, I'd go to my 5'8" Hellfire. If it was knee to waist high, swell period under 8 seconds, mid to high tide, I'd pull out the 5'4" Potatonator. Hope that helps in your decisions.

    Hey megsy,
    Currently riding a 5'6 Spitfire and considering moving down to the 5'4. Seems like I bought 1 size too big. 5'3, 140lbs, intermediate and improving, surf SoCal knee to head high.
    Also, thinking of getting a 5'6 Hellfire as I want something to push my surfing and I really like the look, feel and reviews of the Hellfire. Plus watching your video shows what it can do in smaller surf.
    I still want and need something that can paddle well and get me into smaller surf while my skills continue to improve.
    My question is of your 3 boards (5'2" Sweet Potato, 5'4" Potatonator, 5'8" Hellfire) which one is your primary "go to" board in knee to waist high?
    Ultimately I'd like one board that can do it all but it probably is best to have two. Maybe I'll keep the 5'4 Spitfire and the 5'6 Hellfire to see which one I like more or keep both...just not sure if there is too much overlap.

          Nelson GoldCoast, did you end up getting a 5'8" Hellfire? If so, how are you liking it?
