Activator V.s ADDvance
Just wondering performance and intended use of the 610 ADDvance V's 611 ACTIVATOR comparison. Please correct if I have got it wrong.
Board ADD V's ACT
Length 610 V's 611
Width 22 5/8 V's 21 3/4
Thickness 3 1/16 V's 3 3/16
Volume 56.9 V's 52.6
I'm expectinig being narrower by an inch and refined volume the Activator would be more performance orientated and the Addvance more forgiving. The tails look a bit similar.
Down the line speed? I would have to think Activator would outrun the Addvance.
Paddleability. I would have thought Addvance is better because of the higher volume. But not by too much hopefully at these two lengths.
Would the Activator with a narrower tail than a Dominator handle the steep stuff better. I'm really impressed with the ADDvance capabilities in this area.
In summary, is the Activator a more performance orientated board compared to the Advance with the only compramise being a little less paddleability (is that a word) and a bit more technical to surf.
I have been looking at a DOMINATOR to compliment my ADDVance. A bit more perfomance without losing too much paddle characteristics and able to handle steeper waves. I have been put off a bit on the DOM by some comments on the wide tail not sticking so well in a steeper wave.
