I love the look of the longer Spitfire/Dominators. Because the width doesn't increase as much as the length you end up with a really nice looking shortboard style shape. I think that's why bigger guys riding the 604 and up Dom and Spitfires have better results in bigger surf than those of us on 508 x 20" versions. Makes me want to CBD a 510 x as narrow as possible with a pulled in nose and tail.
I know what you mean about being able to get another. My CBD continues to feel magic every time I take it out. I never need to adjust and get used to it and it always makes me feel confident. I have the file on lock down for when it needs replacing!
