Hi all I am trying to decide what size md to get. I weigh 155 pounds and am 5'11 and of intermediate ability. I live and mostly surf in Sydney Australia.
I am looking for a board that will take over where my fish leaves off and before I go for my regular short board in 3-5ft waves. I also want this to be a good Indo board which I believe it to be. Given my weight and ability what side would you recommend I was thinking a 5'10? Also will this board handle the mushy days or is it for good waves only?

Maximum Dominator SizeI am still at learning stage and Addvance 606 is the good board for me for now.
However, at our local beach, it is very difficult (almost impossible) to go out with Addvance when waves get higher than chest because I cannot duckdive quickly enough with the board. (There always is a section with 3-4 waves with very short intervals.) A very good surfer there tried with Addvance and he found it very difficult even for him.
I am 6 feet tall and 170 pounds. What is the maximum size Dominator I can handle? I have a lot of mustles for my weight and I need volume at my learning stage.
Please advise. Thank you!
5'4" or 5'6"Hey guys,
I'm thinking of getting myself a sweet potato. I am 33, 80kg and 187cm and my fitness levels are good. I currently have a 6'0" Hellfire which goes real nice on grunty 4 foot + waves. But i find that it a feels a little too big on smaller waves.
I've tried a 5'8" dom which was too small and a 5'10 dom which felt too big. I'm leaning towards a 5'4" potato. Does this sound about right?
Which board?Hi Nev,
I need a bit of help choosing a new board if you can help out please.
I currently have a 6'1 x 18 1/2 x 2 5/16 DHD D2 model for really good days and a Spitfire 5'8 I take out for everything else. I love both these boards and the cant get enough of the Spitfire and the way it holds its rail.
The problem is I feel like I am missing the board to go between the two as the Spitfire feels a little too fishy when the waves pick up but still aren't perfect and my DHD only really performs in optimal, sucky conditions. I feel like the DHD doesn't have quite enough volume or width when I land my turns off the lip on slightly bumpy or onshore days so I think I need something with a little more foam under my feet but I dont really want to go bigger?
I surf every day and live in Sydney and am of intermediate - advanced ability. I am 5'11 and weigh 72kg's.
I was thinking about a Hellfire as the go to board I need for basically most days but need a bit of guidance as to size and different models if you have suggestions?
Thanks in advance and Im stoked on the Firewire range.
