Thank @ all.
I think i am going either for a Spitfire 6.2 and an Alternator 6.6 for more performance
or 6.0 quadfish and 6.4 Hellfire for more Retro/hybridfeeling.
Thanks a lot iggy.
The Spitfire seems to be very interestings as well.
Lets say i would go for a firewire two-baord-quiver.
the first one has to be the Quadfish in 6.0 i guess - just for every summerwave up to shoulderhigh (also got an surftech high performance longboard for this stuff).
For everything from headhigh and clean i need a second one.
After some research i had a look at the hellfire, the spitfire and the alternator (the dominator has too much fisch-charakteristics i guess).
in this case i am still very confused about the size.
Volume calculator says everything between 31 and 40 lt.
that would mean: spitfire 6.0, hellfire 6.4 or alternator 6.4 / 6.6.
Spitfire: more hybrid-style.
Hellfire/alternator: more shortboard style.
Isn't the hellfire 6.4 too much volume to duckdive in bigger waves?
otherwise the 6.2 seems to be very short (6.3 high, long legs)
Same with the alternator... i couldn't decide between 6.4 and 6.6..
thanks a lot so far!

Hellfire volume !?Hey guys.
i am looking forward to buy a new board propably the FW HF.
At the moment i am surfing a surftech retrofish 6.2//21 3/10 // 2 1/2 that fits me very well - perhaps a bit too much volume....
Now i am looking for something new for cleaner and hollower (?) waves - up to head high.
As i am living in Hamburg GER i am a holidaysurfer- mostly in France/Spain/Portugal
I got 88kg/190-195 lbs/ and 192 cm/ 6.3
I got to say, that i like those hyprid and retroboards - thats why i am not looking forward to surf a small classic stick one day.
Also had a look at the El Fuego D-tail. Very interesting shape. But same problem : 6.1 or 6.3 ?
But i guess that the el fuego is very similar to my retrofish...
Thanks a lot so far!
and excuse me for my written english...

Hellfire Volume (?)Hey guys.
I am looking forward to buy a new surfboard.
I am living in germany and usually surf in franc, span portugal.
at the moment i am using a 6.2 // 21 3/10 // 2 1/2 surftech retrofish which fits me very well- maybe bit too much volume..
i got 88 kg/ 195 lbs and i am 6.3 high (192cm).
Now i searching for a board that works better in fast and hollower (?) waves up to head high.
I got to say that i am not looking forward to surf a small shortbard some day. i guess i like those hybrids and retroboards...
Now i cannot really decide. Hellfire seems to be a good option. But should i take 6.4 or 6.2?
The el Fuego looks pretty good as well.. same problem: 6.3 or 6.1
Thanks a lot so far!
hellfire volume questionHey guys.
or whats it called in northern Germany: Moin, moin.
I got a question depending the hellfire - why i am not shure which one to take.
I surf a couple of weeks the year, mostly summerwaves in france, spain, portugal.
At the moment i use a 6.2*21 3/10 * 2 1/2 Surftech rendel frensh retrofish fitting me very well - maybe a bit tooo much volume...
i am 192 cm high (6.3-6.4), and got 88kg (about 191-195 lbs depending on the wetsuit). intermediate level, i guess...
Now i am looking for a board to go further- somith for hollower (?) and faster waves to head high.
i got to say, that i like those hybrids and retroboards. (mayby its because of the extra volume =))
i guess i am just not too much interested in a "classic shortboard style" at the moment.
Now i am thinking about a 6.2 or 6.4 hellfire and cannot decide.
Or something more alternative like the El fuego ( 6.1 or 6.3 ? i just dont know..)
Thanks a lot so far.
