I can't wait to get my 5'6. How much do you weigh? I'm 90kgs and hope the thing will catch everything that mal's catch too. I intend on dropping at least 5-10kgs asap.
Originally posted by buzzy View PostYou could always try a longboard (instead of the SP)! I always said I never would, and I'm still primarily a shortboarder, but longboarding is now my guilty pleasure!
I live in Victoria, Oz. The wave quality and power is generally good down here with great variety. The intent for purchasing the SP was that there are a couple of breaks down here that I would consider 'Mal Only' breaks, i.e. almost all waves are caught by either long-boarders or potato chip riders. Most short-boarders dont catch much, if anything at these breaks due to the waves being 'fullish'. So I've purchased the SP I guess as a niche board with the intent to use it specifically at these few breaks (having said that I will try it in all other types of waves - e.g. 3-5 foot bells beach/winkipop just for a bit of fun etc).
I think the Dom would cover all other breaks down here.
My thoughts with the HF are similar to the SP. There are a couple of fast point breaks here that when it gets solid I think the HF would be the best option. I now realise it most probably would not be from a 'catching a wave' perspective but more along the lines of performance at these couple of spots.
I think I'll end up with a 3 board quiver to cover everything off!
Thanks for the responses guys. Interesting, I thought that even though the 6'6 HF has less volume than the 6'4 Dom the added length of the HF would provide better 'glide' and paddle faster. If not, I'll go with the Dom (with the view to adding the HF at a latter date).
I'm also waiting on a SP at the moment, dying for it to arrive!
ok thanks mate! I think I might get both :)
Originally posted by hanaleisurfer View PostAloha lieay001, I have the same two boards in my quiver. Both boards catch waves easy. For the type of waves your describing, the Hellfire is the better choice. How heavy are you?
I'm 90kgs (200 pounds) at the moment, 35, slower than I used to be. Planning to get back down to 80kgs eventually. Have been out of the water for 12 months due to multiple operations but about to get back in to it. I tried a mates 6'4 (not firewire and unsure of volume) and struggled to catch waves at this particular break, hence contemplating which one I should go for.

our guy Chuy just rode a 606 pumping Baja surf last week and was also claiming it as a step up board.
can we create "hybrid-stepups"?
In terms of only catching these types of waves (as opposed to how it surfs), would the Hellfire's extra length of 2 inches (and shape) be the better option or would the additional width and volume of the Dominator mean you would not notice the difference that much?
I'm debating which one to get (I might even get both with the intention to use the Hellfire as a step-up instead of say an Alternator).
