I'm asking meself which board will do me right the Spitfire or the Dominator? I'm nothing more then an average surfer trying to get many rides and will be able to progress fairly quick as soon as i get those rides in. I get the impression when reading the forumposts that the boards are just the same only with the Spitfire having the additional bite to it cos of the diamant shaped tail and thinned out rail.
Is it only obvious to take the Spitfire or is this average surfer better of with a Dominator or even a Potatonator?
Plus i'd like to know whether to take the rapidfire one and why choose that over the other one.
By the way, i'm 190 cm tall and about 82 kg of weight.
i mostly surf in Europe and my home break is in the inconsistent Netherlands.
I currently surf a Tokoro Resin8 5'8 quad fish and that goes pretty well. And i won't be able to afford more then just this one board extra.
My thoughts lean towards the spitfire or dominator 5'10 ..
Plz share your thoughts.
I've owned both a 508 Dom and Spit. In my experience paddling and planing at takeoff was the same. Dom could handle the flat sections a tad better -- especially if weight was on back foot. Spit could snap turns a bit tighter.
I sold my Dom and got a Sweet Potato for 1-3 days. Spit comes out 2-6. Although I must admit some days I do miss the Dom. Loved the meaty round tale. Such a good shape.
Damn Iggy. You are gonna cost me another $750 with your Pnator talk! Sounds fun. I may go check one out this weekend. #wifewillbepissed
