6'2" MB thin and 5'10" HF as 2 board quiver
I need a bit of help deciding on a 2 board quiver for overseas trips.
I started my Firewire collection a few years ago with a 6’0” Alt and 6’3” FF vent models and really liked these 2 boards but after a knee injury putting me out of the water for 6 months I lost some condition and struggled a bit on them when I returned to the water. Plus the wave quality at Port Stephens is fairly average most of the year. So enter the 5’10” hellfire and some little mates.
The 5’6” Potatonator gets a fair bit of water time sub 3ft and the Hellfire has now become my got to board for 3ft plus waves locally and on a recent Maldives trip. The Alt travelled over but we never got any quality waves to give her a run.
The Hellfire is great most of the time and is good for getting into waves etc but sometimes it feels like it’s a bit something, maybe too wide in better waves. It’s just not as twitchy as the Alt.
Maybe I’m spending to much time on hybrids and need to get the Alt back in the water OR
Morph the FF and Alt into 1 board.
I looked at getting the 6’2” Alt but it appears to have too much volume. Have thought about tweaking the 6’2” Alt with the CBD or getting the 6’2” MB thin.
What do you guys think would complement a 5’10” hellfire for the bigger waves on trips?
I have also toyed with the idea of the 6’0” MB thick and 6’2” thin for a 2 board travel quiver.
Thanks for your help
