hey im 14 and i weigh 115-120 lbs. im trying to decide whether to get the dominator or the spitfire, and right now im leaning towards a spitfire 5'6. If anyone can help me find out the right board and size that would be awesome... thanks
(by the way im an intermediate surfer surfing waves from 1-6 feet)

For your weight and level, the 5'2" spit is at the maximum recommended volume - go check the volume calculator.
Who do you take after more, your mother or father? Ask them (or if your mother, her brother or father) how much weight they gained from 14 to 16. If you are going to gain but even if you gain 30lb the 5'2 would still float you but you would just have grown into the 5'6 but by then your surfing will have advanced as well so you won't need the volume.
I think you'd be better off on a 5'6 gromflex right now or the 5'8 for now and the future.

If you're after a Spitfire I think the 5'4" would give you plenty of growing room but could feel a bit boaty at first.
Yeah hard to say when you're still at the growing stages.
As PRJ said I think the 5'4" will be a safe bet despite the extra volume.
At your age you'll be gaining pounds and inches in no time
