I have finally started to get used to my 6'2 dominator but I am now having trouble making tighter turns and pumping compared to my al merrick flyer. My flyer is a 6'8, I exclusively ride my 6'2 dominator now because I feel the flyer is to big. I found that stepping down from my 68 to the 62 was not difficult in terms of paddling and catching the waves, however, I am now having trouble catching speed on the wave and making tighter turns. I find that my flyer was faster,easier pumping and turns better. Any suggestions? Smaller dom? Maybe the difference in characteristics of a squash tail vs the round? I feel like maybe stepping down a few inches may help>?? I am a socal surfer mainly surfing beachbreaks like hb, bolsa, porto and try to go out to churches when I can. I surf mainly on Sat-Sun for about 3 and 1/2 seasons consistenlynow and consider myself an intermediate surfer. I am about 5-10 and 170lbs. Thanks for your advice in advance.
