I'm struggeling to decide which potato to buy. I'm 177 and 72 kilos surfing in Denmark. I'm a novice surfing in slobby waves normaly in high wind conditions. I normally surf a 5'10 Spitfire and 5'10 Hellfire. To be honest, the Spit is easier for me and has more float - I will have to grow into my HF.
Question is: On paper the 5'2 wins. I want something that paddles well, but should still be able to duck dive. My spit seems to have just the right amount of volume for my level as of now. I started on a dominator 6'2 which soon got way too big with 38L and impossible for me to duck dive.
I'm 30 years old, fit and want a SP for 1-3 foot wind waves. Wave quality is mostly mushy: 5'4 or 5'2?
