First id like to commend you guys on the forum..I've been reading posts for a while and the info in here has been a great resource for fin reviews and board set ups!
I'm 185 42yrs above average fitness surfing Northeast at any sign of surf.
When we we do get swell and favorable winds (these things rarely happen) Ive been surfing a 6'2" x 19 7/8 x 2 3/8 in beach break and it feels perfect (lively with right amount of float). I have a 6'4" Dom FST that I've loved and ridden for 2yrs...it went from my first shorter board to my go to when conditions are junk and that's 75% of the time. The Dom catches waves with ease but lately feels too thick and the turns a bit drawn out. I'd like to get something that grovels but will help me progress if possible. Does a BP catch waves as well as a Dom or is its advantage in the speed it can hold on softer waves? Will the BP turn sharper than Dom because of the diamond tail? If so should I go down in volume or will that leave me lacking in wave catching ability for a groveler? Thanks Much!
