First off all, I have to say that the Spitfire is a great board.
The issue I'm having is that I feel that the Alternator and Spitfire overlap a bit in the waves we have here. I used to have a 5'10 Dominator for the small/fat/mushy/crappy waves and there was no problem getting into waves. With the 5'8 Spitfire I feel that the board need cleaner waves with a bit more punch. The Spit goes great in these conditions, but I could also use the Alternator. I feel that there is a gap between the Spit and 5'4 Sweet Potato that I need to fill. So the quiestion is; would a El Fuego get me into weaker waves easier, but still work good in good waves if I for some reason choose the El Fuego over the Alternator that day ? And could the 5'11 El Fuego grovel as well as my old 5'10 Dominator ?
I'm afraid to sell my 5'8 Spitfire and regret it afterwards, but I think the 5'11 El Fuego might fit better in between the Sweet Potato and the Alternator.
Maybe a 5'10 Spitfire could be the right one, but I remember that the 5'10 Dominator I had did feel a bit big at times....
Seems like the El Fuego might be hard to find in the shops now, any other models that might do the job?
PS: Is it possible to get the El Fuego without the vent-valve ?
