I am 5-9, 180lb, 29 yoa. I am currently surfing a 9:fish seared ahi 6'2 Quad fin. i been surfing 4 years around 1-2 times in the summer time. this year i been going 2-3 times n getting stronger at paddling. i m pretty fit. I surf at socal el porto beach break. paddling is not a problem but duck diving is for me cuz the seared ahi cant duck dive. too much float. bigger waves washes me back big time.
The board is super fast on take off. i can hardly pop up soon enough. but when i do, i do a large bottom turn and that is about it. the board is super skatey , having a hard time controling it.
So brings me to the question of should i get a 6'2 dominator thruster setup or a 6'10 addvance. any response/knowledge is appreciated?
