Ok...I'm 42 years old and for my birthday my wife game me the opportunity of a life time. 8 Days at Cardon Resort in Mexico to re-learn how to surf. I used to be probably an intermediate surfer with mostly long boards until I had kids. After that it went downhill with only a handful of sessions every year. Now that I'm going on this amazing trip I feel I need a new board in my quiver and everyone is pusing me towards a Dominator. I'm thinking with my size (5'11" 185 lbs) I would go with about a 6'2" all around board. I'm still open for suggestions but I'm thinking of erroring on the long side based on surfing mostly longboards for the last 7 years. I'm also struggling with a safe fin setup that is not too lose where I can't stand up but lose enough to have some fun and not think I'm on my 7'7" McTavish Carver and can't make turns. I have heard nothing but good things about the Dominator and I know I will love it but I really don't have a chance to play around and test it much before I go on my trip. After reading through hours of posts and making my choices more confusing than ever; I trust that all of the people posting on this board have more knowledge than me and will lead me in the right direction. Thanks for the help!!!
