Thanks again to all of you for your comments and advises. I think I'll get the 6'6". Not too far from 6'8", I know, but at least 5 l. less of volume and still an extra of flotation that sure will help me at this stage. Also, following Chris advise, as I won't have the chance to surf a lot this year the 606 will be an easier adjustment and will get me in to smaller waves.
Cheers to all!

Not to add anxiety, but my 6'6" Dom was definitely too big for my 6'4", 210lb, 49 yr old self. I got the 6'4" Dom and it's great - that 5 liters made a huge difference in performance. No problem catching waves with the 604 and it just surfs a lot better. The 606 was too buoyant. I am just an intermediate surfer who surfs mushy waist to head-high waves.
If it's too late to send it back, you'll end up like me - with a brand new Dominator for sale - surfed once.
following your suggestion, I've got in contact with the shop and I've requested them to change the order. I thought that they'll rejected it as I ordered the board on august and, although the board hasn't arrived yet, it should be almost ready to be packed at Firewire. Well the answer has been totally positive and they will order a new one. They have to confirm me this and tell me more or less when the new order arrive, I guess it's like a new one so I'll have to wait a more month.
So, taking in account what I wrote when I opened this thread:
"...I'm 43, 6'4" tall, 185 lb and average fitness. I used to surf 12 years ago with a beginner to intermediate level though nowadays I guess my level is back to beginner as I've not surfed since then... I've bodysurfed a lot in quite big and strong waves all these years but not on a surfboard since 12 years ago..."
wich size of Dominator should I order this time?, I think 6'4" would be ok after reading all yuor advises and other threads about Dom sizes.
I'd appreciate a lot your comments and suggestions. I have a couple of days to confirm the right size to the shop where I ordered the board.
Thanks a lot in advance to all, you're being quite a help!
Hey tallkook and Gnubee, thanks a lot for your comments and sorry for coming back a little too late...
In fact what I can't understand is why the volume calculator offers those results when everybody here (included Chris) see them as wrong ones. Anybody at Firewire who could explain this a little, please?.
I'm going to open a thread at FIREWIRE RESOURCES / VOLUME CALCULATOR chat asking about this, maybe there I'll find an answer?
buzzy, gizona, Gnubee and Chris, thanks a lot for the info and advises, I really appreciate them.
I've asked the shop about the type of fins (FCS or FUTURES) of the board and I'm waiting for their response. I also presume that by default they will be FCS. I think I'll get the PC-7 thruster as I can't find any place where to order a 5 fin set up for PC-7, SA or GAM. Do you know if they are actually available anywhere?, wich site would you recommend me for buying them?. I've found a german site where I can get PC-7 thruster for 70€ (88$) shipping included. Is that a good price?.
About the size of my Dominator, now I think I ordered the wrong one... Sure it'll fit for the first days (maybe months...) but not for the next couple of years...
In fact I chose that size according to the Firewire Volume Calculator. Asuming Beginner/Inter. level, Average fitness, 45 years old (I'm 43) and 84 kg. I got a MIN volume of 53 and a MAX of 65. Dominator 6'8" has 49.4 L, 15.1 less than the recommended for a Hybrid board. Even changing to Intermediate Level I got a MAX volume of 50, the recommended for a hybrid board.
So my question is, did I make something wrong when I used the tool?, or maybe I misunderstood the meaning of the results?.
Besides those factors, does height really affect?, I always thought that the size of the board should be according to the surfer height, as the center of gravity changes (goes higher with taller surfers). What about this?... I'm 1.93 m (6'4") so I guessed that the size of the board should be at least 6'6" or a bit longer...
Anyway, I'm afraid it's too late to change the order as it has been already ordered to Firewire by the shop where I bought it (blue-tomato.com).
Anyone out there with a 6'8" Dom?... I'd appreciate a lot his comments....
Thanks again to all.
Fins for Dominator 6'8"Hi to all,
I'm from Spain and this is my first post.
I'm 43, 6'4" tall, 185 lb and average fitness. I used to surf 12 years ago with a beginner to intermediate level though nowadays I guess my level is back to beginner as I've not surfed since then... I've bodysurfed a lot in quite big and strong waves all these years but not on a surfboard since 12 years ago.
I recently ordered a FS Dominator 6'8" at an internet shop, hopefully it will arrive in a couple of weeks. I wonder if I chose the right board, maybe a little too big?, would it have been better a 6'6"?
Wich are the recommended fins according to my weight, size and level?. Should I use quad or thruster set up?.
I wonder if all FS Dominator need FCS fins, or they can be built to use Future fins... Looking at firewire site it seems that Rapidfire tech uses Futures and FS uses FCS, am I right or wrong?....
Thanks a lot in advance for the help and info.
