Spitfire/Hellfire and Sizing 70kg 5'7" beginner/intermediate
Just looking for a bit of help deciding on a spitfire or a hellfire and the correct size. Im 5'7" and 70kg would consider myself intermediate/beginner. I am currently riding a dinged up 2nd hand eden "ben lowe" thruster its a 6'0. Its pretty heavy for its size has probably taken on a bit of water, im having a great time on it surfing along the gold coast but am looking for something that will go a bit better in the smaller stuff and still hold up when its bigger... Im at the stage where im catching heaps of waves and starting to carve them up with nice turns when conditons are good, am happy to try and surf whatever i can paddle out in, im fit and learning fast but am finding it frustrating on smaller days with the current board.
So yeah just want something thats gonna be heaps of fun and help me progress ideally that i can get a good duckdive out of, will hold in bigger surf and will pick up smaller surf... is this too much to ask haha?!
Currently i am thinking Spitfire 5'8" or 5'6" and Hellfire 5'10" or 5'8"... Any suggestions? And sizing wise are the bigger two sizes gonna be too much board for me?
