I'm looking to replace my 5'8" Dominator and am interested in the Activator.
I'm 43, 6ft about 175 (79kg ish) and have been surfing about 30 years. I'm UK based and usually surf average beachbreak spots, I'm not exactly Dane Reynolds but I surf OK.
The 5'8" Dominator has been a great board for me, never found it lacking once up and riding but I don't think I could switch to anything that was much less able in the paddling/wave catching department (and with my age this is only going to get more important!)
So, as far as the Activator is concerned, I like the sound of it being a bit more performance orientated in the way it surfs but am worried that if I go for a 5'9" the drop in volume (31L to 29.2L) will make it a struggle to get into waves. But then on the other hand if I go up to the 5'11" (32.8L) will I find it a bit of a lump??
Any feedback from someone who has ridden both boards, or just knows their onions would be really useful!
