Spitfire vs dominator vs potatonator - 6.3 / 88kgs / avg waves
Looking to narrow down between what board would be best suited between spitfire, dominator or potatonator.
Im looking for an all round 1 board quiver. Most waves i surf are 1-4 foot max, sometimes fat, sometimes mushy, sometimes ok, always wetty, normally a 2x2/4x3.
Originally i was thinking potatonator but then thought this might be just a replacement for the quad i have which is 5.11 x 20 3/4 x 2 1/2 and would like something that is able to perform in the knee high stuff and also when it gets a bit bigger, sometimes a bit steeper. From what ive heard potatonator great for small waves but when it gets a bit bigger another hybrid might be better.
Then i though dominator was the go, but after a few vids and reading seems that the tail on the dom is suited to long arching surfers and can sometimes get caught up in the lip a bit. Still heard some amazing things about these.
Then one of the firewire aus reps said have a look at spitfire. At this stage thiking 6.2 spitfire to replace my quad and 6.3 standard shortboard. Something for a go to board for any type of waves (not 8 foot reefs obviously).
Firstly, whats peoples thoughts on the three boards above, secondly dimensions for a reasonably paddle fit 6.3 x 88kgs fella.
Thanks for ya help.
