Started out with firewire on a 6'2 Dom which was a revelation
Realised fairly quickly that I COULD go shorter so I did
Then maybe rushed in a little quickly and got over excited and went to the 5'10
I began to struggle a little with the 5'10 I kept finding getting onto the wave was difficult when it wasnt pumping - the 6'0 is considerably easier in lesser conditions
My 5'10 dom is easier to through around - (my brother who is a stone lighter has it now after snapping his 6'0 dom)
If I was on my game and fit as I was 12months ago Id be on the 5'10 still - and maybe I will be come the end of the year.
Ive always liked them as thrusters
