I am close to ordering my first Firewire board but would appreciate some advice.
Currently own a 6ft CI motorboat too (selling as was fine in costa rica in good waves and no wetsuit but just that bit too hard to paddle now back in u.k in more difficult conditions( wind/chop/extra weight of winter wetsuit).
I already own a 6'6 black and white quad fish and longboard but want something to replace the motorboat too that will work for me once waves are too big for the fish (I find it too difficult to duckdive when waves are bigger than chest high which will have something to do with my skill and also I feel I want something that has more rocker when waves are steeper- the motorboat too feels feels much better at this for me)
I also want the board to be also versatile so it will work well in all condtions whether that be onshore mush or glassy.
I am 6ft2, 85kg- 33 years old in good shape, generally only surf a couple of times a month (unless on holiday) but physically fit as am a triathlete and swim 2-3 times a week. Probably class myself as an intermediate/ low intermediate.
I was thinking about either the new unibrow, mini driver or hellfire but it would good to hear what people thoughts are which would be a good option and sizing ?
