  • Addvance 6'10 v Potatonator 6'8 or Dominator 6'10 might come down to a coin toss

    New to Firewire surfboards!

    40years old been surfing since the age of 15. I will go out in almost any conditions as I believe even catching one wave is better than none. (weak knee high to powerful over head.)

    I normally surf a 9'2ft longboard but with my feet at the back of the board in an aggressive style. Earlier this year I got a Meyerhoffer 7'4 Lemondrop (53lt Vol) which I loved straight away, super fast, paddles easy and could turn on a dime but as of late feels a little sluggish with no pop off a bottom as it once did.

    So now I'm stuck between the above mentioned boards.

    6'3ft 95kgs average fitness novice to intermediate ability.

      You didn't mention your weight, but I'd say 6' 10" Addvance too, it's an amazing board. Either that or the Dom.

      Thanks for the replies I'm pretty sure I'm after the 6'10 addvance. Is there any definition on the whole beginner, intermediate experience thing? Cheers afain

        I ride the 6' 10" at 80kg, I could ride the 6' 6" for sure.

        Not sure about the definition of a beginner / intermediate.

        You've been surfing a long time (i'm a beginner).

        I'd say that if you want to push yourself get a Dom, if you want a safer option get the Addvance.

          Just another note (not from experience but from reading here)

          The Addvance is a really high volume board and designed to be ridden at high volumes.

          Whereas the with Dominator it's really designed to be ridden at the *correct* volume, so if you go the Dominator route you want to get the sizing right. I'd say a 6' 10" Dominator sounds huge in this respect.
