Im 87-89kg 5'&" and have been surfing for a while. I would Say Im intermediate.
I have a shortboard 6'4" x 19 1/4 x 2 3/4 (No idea of what the volume is!) Safari Sunni pro model (South african board). Recently in Maldives I found the board to be a bit slow in the paddle ins, not quick enough down the line in the 2-4 ft range. Any bigger and it goes fine.
I borrowed a 6'2" Fish with a pulled in swallow tail which was very buoyant, fast, and paddled great, but wasnt quick enough off the top for me.
Now Im thinking I want a hybrid of some sort and was thinking Dominator or Spitfire, but cant get my head around the dimensions, floatiness, volume etc and there are many conflicting reviews.......is the 6'o" too small, or should I go for the 6'2"?
How would my existing 6'4" compare in volume to the Dom and Spitfire? is the spitfire really that much more performance orientated than the dominator?
Added to this, I want to kitesurf on it with a small kite.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Confused about Volume and size! 87kg 5'7" and keen as mustard for a Dominator!Hope someone can help me
I am 86-88kg 5'7" and have been suring for a long time. Im intermediate I guess, but living in Dubai now so surf few times a year. I have a 6'4" x 19 1/4" x 2 3/4" Safari Sunny Pro model shortboard.
Recently in Malldives this board was not fast enough, floaty enough or paddle into waves early enough in the 2-3/4 ft range of surf. Above that it was OK. I was experimenting and riding a borrowed 6'2" fish/hybrid with a swallow tail pulled inthat was Ok, but not really high performance enough especially off the top.
So Im looking for something wider, shorter, paddles better, but that still turns off the bottom and top. I was thinking about the 6'2" dominator.
Added to this, I want to kite strapless with it.
Ive read so much about volume, I cant decide which would suit better.
