  • Spitfire/Hellfire for 70kg 5'7" beginner/intermediate

    Hey guys!

    Looking for a bit of help deciding on which board and then what size!

    So im on the gold coast looking for something that will hold in bigger surf but pick up some smaller stuff too.

    Im 5'7 and about 70kg.

    Currently im riding a banged up, probably a bit water logged, 6'0 eden Ben Lowe thruster and i actually love it its just a bitch to get smaller waves with... It also feels pretty heavy (a bit water logged?!) but once its up its real nice and its doing the trick for an $80 2nd hand job but.

    So my current thoughts are spitfire 5'6 or 5'8 and hellfire 5'8 or 5'10...

    Im super stoked on surfing at the moment and just want smoething thats gonna be heaps of fun and will really help me progress... I am leaning towards the hellfire as the summer is on its way, i can put up with it on smaller days (or borrow my girlfriends minmal) and i feel like the hellfire would be a better mid point for building a quiver around...

    Any advice would be awesome thanks in advance!

    Hey Nelson, what kind of waves are you going to be in? Size and steepness??

    Thanks!

      It's the Goldie; think Burleigh, Kirra, Superbank, Snapper and D-Bah - plenty of steepish and hollow waves and long points.

      I think a HF would be a good midpoint for a quiver. Save the spit or a p-nator for grovelling in small waves. I'm guessing a 5'8 but check the volume recommendations in the volume calculator. A hellrazor is worth considering too I think.

          ok that worked but it keeps denying my posts! i picked up a 5'8 spitfire second hand really good condition got it set up 4 fins and stoked to go try it! tiny waves at the moment on the gold cast and i figure itl make a great perfomance groveller that i can easily sell on and go for something else! probably demo some stuff down at firewire in currumbin as currumbin alley is pretty much my favourite local spot! thanks for the help!

            Nice man, heard the Spit is magic.

            I must stop reading these posts as I may want a Spit.

            I must stay true to my quiv!

            At any rate, nice work.
