So I have had my 6'10 addvance for about a year and a half now and have really enjoyed it. I only get to surf on trips at the moment 2-3 a year maybe 4-5 weeks total. the downside is a lack of regular surfing but the upside is quality waves when I do get the chance. Last time was two weeks in Indo, nowhere too heavy but lots of fun. Moral of the story by the end of a trip I am feeling pretty good about my surfing and start to wonder about downsizing my board. My main goal in this is to gain a bit more maneuverability and speed perhaps even the opportunity to duck dive. At the same time I don't want to end up with something that I can't catch waves on. I'm 176lb about 6 foot with decent fitness and I'd put myself as an early intermediate in terms of ability. Boards that have caught my eye and fit me according to the volume calculator are the 6'6 Spitfire and I am also rather partial to the idea of 6'6 addvance as I have enjoyed the 6'10. The Dominator is in there but not too sure about it. I am not looking to build a quiver so much as have something that will go well in most conditions. I know this is not the most original post but I am interested in what you guys think, is it even worth it to go from the 6'10 to the 6'6?
No announcement yet.
from 6'10 to what?
