Hi, looking for some advice on a nice dilemma.
Having settled the mind on a Hellfire, not hard considering so much positive feedback on muiltiple blogs and the you tube vids. I don't whether to go for the 5'10 or 6'0.
I pretty much surf 3 time a week on average weather and kids permitting, waves are often fairly fat but we get plenty of steep hollow low tide days too. I am missing that magic board for the 3 to 6ft (my max probably, maybe bigger at the odd point break). I love my fishes for their volume, ease of paddle and number of waves they allow me to catch. The problem occurs when it gets hollow, I lose hold on take off and in the pocket. I am pretty fit for my age but by no means a triathlete, my head say 6'0 because I don't want to lose volume, paddle ability and wave count....but my heart says 5'10. The other reason I am thinking 6'0 is type of waves i want this for and to help my take that next step in terms performance (tighter turns, actual barrels etc) but dont want to replace the fishes because I enjoy mixing it up (although I get the feeling the hellfire might change this). Any advice would be appreciated!
