Thanks for that.
I'm really looking forward to surfing the bay. Can you recommend any good accommodation ? Preferably right on the point and air conditioned.
Appreciate your feedback

I'm from Cabarita which is notoriously fat most of the time, so looking for something that will perform in indo but also excel at home.
That said Hellrazor 6.7 or Hellfire 6.6?
Hellfire for Nias?Guys, Heading to Nias Feb / March for some very early season waves (fingers crossed).
I have my MC 6'11" and was looking for another board to take if it's small....it is out of season.
Thinking Hellfire 6'6"?
My current boards all run to around 21" wide and 27/8" - 3" thick.......anything to help the paddle in!
Will the Hellfire handle up to 6' Nias?
I want to still be able to surf something back home, am I looking in the right place with this board?
Originally posted by cuttlefish View PostSwapped boards with a friend who's interested in a potatonator earlier this week.
He's a few kgs heavier than me and was on his 6'10" McCoy nugget (21" X 3" I believe) and he was doubtful my 6'2" would float him.
Sitting in the line up I wasn't sitting too much lower than him in the water.
He was thinking a 6'8" potatonator would be the ticket for him being used to the McCoy.
We swapped boards and he was amazed at A: how well the potatonator paddled and B: how well it floated him.
He was always taken aback at how loose it was.
Now he's thinking 6'4" will be fine as he had no trouble catching waves on my 6'2" but wants it for smaller waves and he'll ride his nugget when it's larger..
When you say MC do you mean Michael Cundith?
If so which model?
MC doesn't mind volume but has lovely rails on his boards.
Demo the 6'er.
Michael makes great boards, I have a 7.2 kingfish, 6.6 dart fish, 6.11 and 6.8 islander. All 3 " thick 23, 22, 21, 21". All keepers, my surfing has progressed with all these boards, looking to take another step. I still surf all the MC's and love em. Looking for a board to go faster and looser.
Will see what Demo's are at Currumbin tommorrow.....hopefully the surf is still pumping.
Sounds like the 6.0 is the go.
Just got some nice 4' Snapper. I noticed the wind really effected getting down the face on my tufflite. I'm assuming the PN will be similar?
Also got dome nice hollow sections through Cooly, how does the PN go in a bit of juice?
Thanks in advance
Potatonator...A little help pleaseHi
I am 50...ish, 83kg, 5'10",reasonably fit and looking for a PN.
Average 2 3 surfs a week but in the pool if the surf is crap.
I'm thinking 6'2"?
Currently surfing an MC 6'8" x 21" x 3". and a Wayne Lynch 6'9" Tufflite rounded pin. Great boards but Im looking for more speed and manouverability.
The tufflite has me kind of hooked on the "less weight" thing.
Paddle power is very important in my decission.
Would still like to be able to surf 4-5' Snapper if this is the only board I have in the car.
Thanks in advance for your help.
na didnt see the volume calculator.
Just did it then and it looks like your spot on with the 5'8 spitfire!
I think im leaning more towards the hybrid style boards instead of the stokes,
but open to any suggestions.
I will be buying local so will check out some of the shops to see if they have any demos available.
thanks again for the help
Deciding which boardHi everyone, first post on here.
Im 18, about 170cm tall, 60kg and in need of a board.
Im from Perth wa and surf at trigg/scabs 90% of the time (1-3ft).
Ive been surfing for a couple of years so in the beginner/avg surfer range.
Anyway im after a new board. Had a simmon anderson 6'1 shortboard but am looking for something thats a bit shorter.
ive narrowed it down to these 3 boards but not sure about which one to go with.
Domiator 5'6/8 Spitfire 5'6/8 or Sp 5'0/2
I like the sp but im thinking its not the best board when ive only got a badly dinged up shortboard.
