I'm moved some of my boards to Mexico and i need a small wave / wind chop board for home for the spring summer. i surf a 6'8" alternator on the decent surf but i 'm looking for something for all the choppy and small days (even the 15 kts onshore days!). i surf beach breaks and in the spring they're usually pretty messed up and challenging for me to surf. i'm looking at the 6'4" spit or dom. i know the dom has been incredibly popular but i'm wondering if there is any advantage for the dom over the spit. it's seems like the spit tail is a no-brainer for biting turns but honestly, conditions are often bad enough (and i've only been surfing 3 years) that on these bad days i'm usually more concerned with making the drop and making a quick pump down the line to make the section than i am with pulling off biting turns off the lip (i get one of those a session on these days). is one board more forgiving on the drops and getting through the big chops?
gonna order this week! thanks
