6-3 Activator , since i am comfortable with the volume already on my Quadra - five and Hell fire. 37L and 36L (all completely different boards) the dimensions are scaled down tighter than the DOM and its tail is pulled in allowing more play, tighter turns on the waves. I can say this will be my daily go to board.
the 6-4 Dominator I originally got at that heavier volume to be a "groveler" plus board for mushy powerless crowded waves, made it easy on me to paddle into most everything thats not too hollow. I see it as more of a cruiser than a performance board for me.. (most people would have gone to a Sweet pot, Baked Potato, Potatonator or addvance) the wider tail on the DOM makes great heavy carving sprays, but not tight enough for me like a Hell Fire does and now the Activator. I would have consider a 6-2 Dom, but since the 6-3 Activator, I am pleased with the new board.
Do you think a 6'5 Activator for my daily board will have too much volume? I am an intermediate+ surfer. I have 34 years, 6,3 tall, weigth 200 pounds plus wetsuit. The waves out here are mostly beach and point breaks.
I think you could make arguments for both. Fritz rides warm places with no suit and good waves so I am thinking that being a competent surfer, having a slightly larger frame and the presence of a wetsuit, you might benefit from having a little extra volume over Fritz's 603.
The 605 could be a good way to get small wave versatility without sacrificing a lot of performance.
Hope this helps!!
It helps a lot! Already ordered a 6'5 Activator.
stoked on the support!! let us know how it goes!
Tininho, I agree with Chris, that extra 10 pounds of wieght and rubber, youll probably need a floatier board. I could be wrong, unless you get out everyday and are in top shape.
Keep the 6-4 Hell fire in mind, after you get spoiled on the 6-5 Activator.
Prjwebb I just noticed you have a Minnie driver FST ?????? Have I been asleep for that long
Ha! Just sold my Sub Scorcher and pre-ordered one. Won't be under my feet until September time though.
