  • Dominater vs Spitfire vs Proctor Monsta

    hi there,im a bit confused on what to get.i almost pulled the trigger on the dominater a couple of months ago but bought a house so i had to wait a bit.now im ready but cant decide since i read to many fourms lol
    im 6'4 218lbs and surfed for 15 years off and on.took a 4 year break do to being stabbed in lower back.the last 3 years i been surfing a funboard 7'3 quad on small days and a old 6'10 wrv shortboard thruster on bigger days.its mostly 1 to 4 ft and rarely double overhead.i've been doing some reserach and cant decide on what to get.im not a shredder but im no soul surfer.im 31 in good shape and just want to try and step it up this year.i can do cut backs,smack the lip and floaters.
    reason im posting is cuz im old school and not new to all the new board designs.i just want a board that gets into waves early and loose with alot of drive.i also like to catch alot of waves.i like volume! thing is i also want it for those double overhead days that sometimes come around at the end of the year and for hurricane season.hope ya'll can help me out.i surf whenever theres waves...if its a weekend and theres waves im in all day.and if its a work day and i see theres waves i use a sick day...heres my choices.

    i would ether get the

    6'6 dominater
    6'6 spitfire
    6'6 proctor monsta 21'' x 2 3/4

    all ridden as quad since i love them

      The proctor Monsta will get you covered in bigger days I believe. In your case I would go for the Spitfire. Since you lake the "junk in the trunk", 6'6" will float you plenty. The Spitfire will be a bit more performant than the Dominator.
      Have yuo taken a look at the Potatonator?. Could be another interesting option if you want to downsize a bit

              Yeah I agree on the Spitfire although I wouldn't be too keen to take it out in double overhead, but up to 1.5 overhead I enjoy it.
              Are you looking at Futures or FCS?

                  The AM2 5 fin setup is definitely a good candidate which will offer the flexibility of both setups:
                  AM2 5-Fin

                  Front Fins:

                  Height: 4.73 in, 12.01 cm
                  Base: 4.49 in, 11.40 cm
                  Area: 15.98 sq in, 103.10sq cm

                  Center Trailer

                  Height: 4.49 in, 11.40 cm
                  Base: 4.63 in, 11.76 cm
                  Area: 15.32 sq in, 98.84 sq cm

                  Quad Trailer

                  Height: 4.00 in, 10.16 cm
                  Base: 3.88 in, 9.86 cm
                  Area: 12.39 sq in, 79.94 sq cm


                  A popular template for the light footed large surfer. The large base with medium tip helps with powerful bottom turns and releasing the fins off the top. Try this laid back template in wrapping point breaks. Riding the quad rears instead of the center fin will add drive and hold.
