  • Love my Dominator but want something a little more stable in bigger, hollower surf

    I love my 6'4 Dominator but found it a bit wobbly at higher speeds on overhead waves even with a thruster set up. Any suggestions on something a bit more stable but still fun and versatile?
    Ive been looking at the other performance hybrids. Ill be surfing primarily east coast us waves.
    Im 6'1, 185lbs , intermediate.

    Maybe a Unibrow in the same size?

        Mini Driver is another good option but the UB will feel more similar to the Dom.

          This is what everybody has been looking for ever since they came out with the Dominator. I really wish they would just take the Dom and stretch it out thinner without getting anymore creative with the shape.

            So agree with that. It would be perfect.

                thanks for the feedback. Just bought a 5'7 baked potato and its a blast in smaller stuff, even with a 4/3 n. Do you all think a good addition to the Baked would still be the 6'4 unibrow? Im 6'1 185lbs, surf east coast waves.

                  Daveyj I have tried a Dom, HF, CC, Spitfire all to compliment my BP 5'9" and they were all okay probably the Spitfire was the best but had larger wave limitation. I got a Vanguard 6'2" last week and have ridden it from 2ft to 12ft faces and it's all over it it's such a good transition from the BP it not funny, the board is a high performance however you can ride it as high performance as you want or just cruze, have a think about one.

                    i think the unibrow is going to be the ultimate east coast board.. haven't gotten mine wet though but it just looks perfect.. plenty of volume under chest to get into short period waves and really nicely refined tail to throw some tight turns in the pocket.. hopefully get it into some waves down your way this summer (surf city pier) :)

                      Surfed the UB in very sucky clean surf just a touch above overhead this morning. It went absolutely fine. Great even. Full stop. It's also true to say though that my Q5 would have offered just a touch more control on that first drop in/bottom turn. This board could easily be a one board quiver if conditions don't often get above 1.5x overhead.

                          thanks for the feedback. that shape intrigues me and ive read alot about planing hulls etc. i will check it out for sure.

                            nn66 is right about the VG. i surf it big and small, high performance and old school. u can draw lines or just pound the lip, its a real fun board. i wud typically ride a 6'4 or 6'6, but can go 6"-8" shorter w the VG. its basically the high performance version of the ADD. the ADD is a longboard w/o the nose and the VG is a shortboard w/o the nose. compact flotation at its best.

                              Chris. Why is there no Unibrow specific category on this forum?

                              Makes it difficult to find consistent info.
