Hey All, use my Firewire email, [email protected] for emergency issues, not my forum inbox. However, please avoid contacting me directly with questions on choosing a board, just use the glorious forum. Cheers!
I ordered my 6'2 spitfire with Down The Line, but it's going to take 2-3 months to get it in (I wanted futures rather than fcs). Shame there's not more demand for futures in the UK!
I'm 510 180 lbs and I have lost so many waves in my life that I decided to go with some volume. I ride a 604 Spit and love it. I rarely paddle for something and lose it to someone else (even longboards). The extra volume hasn't really held me back either as I feel my turns are still crisp. I've surfed it 3' to 10' and feel it is versitile in a range of conditions. Lately I've had a few sessions that made me think 'wow, this is THE board.'
I hope I say the same when I finally take mine out (same size as you and just got a 6'4"). I just got it to replace a 6'6" al merrick red beauty, 6'4" griffin 5 fin Modfish and a stretch 6'5" F4 quad surf tech. The surf tech was my favorite board, but I did lose a few waves as I am just over 40 years old and the thing only has 33L of volume. Hoping the volume of the Spit will get me more waves. Wave count is what matters to me, the Spit is so light, what I give up in volume and size, the wt should help me throw it around a little bit, plus, I am not really a vertical surfer anyway, just work it like a half pipe, then when It it starts to close out it try and pull a floater or hit the lip real hard. I am not into trying big maneuvers and having a good chance of falling if there is still plenty of wave/shoulder to ride. I guess that is why
