First off hello to all !
My name is Mike , I grew up surfing on the east coast of Florida ( until my mid 40's ) . Decided to try living in the mountains ( been here 7yrs )... not what I expected so now I'm moving back and want to get back in the water.
I'm 51 years old and in resonable shape, 6'1" 200 lbs. ( usually 185 pounds in the summer )
So now I have some questions ....
1). I grew up surfing the standard surfboard materials , foam and fiberglass . how much different is the feel in the water of polystyrene and epoxy ?
2). I ran the volume calculator and depending on the weight I enter ( 200 or 185 ) I get different volume suggestions which is understandable but, I don't want to over volume myself as I progressively get in better shape. I have been looking real hard at the Dominator in the 6'2" or 6'4" . just not sure which one. Leaning toward the 6'2" so as I get in better shape and drop some weight the fit will be better.
3). How is the durability of the new materials ?
Thanks gang ,can't wait to get back,
