Hellfire 5.10 not sure i chose the right size
Hi guys, my name's dan and comes from rome, italy. Believe it or not we get surf too every now and then!
I just bought a fantastic hellfire 510 but not sure i did the right thing. I'm 67 kgs (147lbs) and 170 cm high and already ride a dominator 5.6. I love it but needed a board for bigger surf. I chose this size (510) beacause i was looking for a board wich would give me more paddling power in bigger but slow waves.
But now looking at your replies in different threads it seems that my ideal size would have been at 5.8.
Before byiung it, i took in consideration that the majority of you surf in better conditions than i do since you all come from fanstastic countries like australia, usa, portugal etc where waves are real waves (faster and more powerful). I haven't tried my hellfire yet but was wondering whether it would be better to try to sell it before putting in the water to get a 5.8. Or maybe i should just keep it and see how it goes. My level is lower intermediate wich means ( just being able to do bottom turns...maybe for you guys this is beginner stuff :-)
Looking forward to receiving your advice!
