    Great thread. Very helpful.
    I'm also looking at a Spitfire and still trying to dial in the size. I'm 5'8" 165 lbs average surfer. I'm good to about head high. I surf mostly in North County San Diego - Pipes, Cardiff, Fletcher Cove, Grandview. I don't trust the Firewire volume calculator.... especially after reading the posts above. Any suggestions? Firewire wanted me on a 6'0. Reading the posts above seem like a 5'10 or maybe 5'08 would be better. Any insights would be very helpful.

      Depends on your ability and fitness, but if you're at a competent level the 5'8 should be great. If you're ripping and in great shape I'd even look at the 506.
      If you're cruising and just want an easy ride the 510 or 600 would be lots of fun.
