  • Right size Dominator for me??? Fins?

    Hi Forum,

    I live in so cal, mainly surf Bolsa Chica where it ranges from 1'-3' mushy summers to 6' clean winters. I have been trying to transition from longboard to short. I went from my noserider log, to a 7'6" addvance, and moved on to a beat up used 6'8" Tuflite Al Merrick Flyer. I can now get by just fine on this, riding the face, pumping up and down the wave and cutting back once in a while but I am a weak paddler and can only get in the water on weekends.

    I loved how the 7'6" Addvance was a great transition board which was my gateway to a new found love for surfing a shorty. I heard much praise about the Dominator so I would like to go back to Firewire.

    So forum, what size board and fins would you recommend?? I am 31, 5'10", 170 lbs give or take with weak arms. I have been surfing pretty much every weekend in the bolsa chica area for about 2 years now, I can catch the wave fine, pump up and down the face and cutback once in a while. Would love some feedback in size.

    Here are the specs to my flyer:

    6'8" x 20.5" x 2.88", 45L volume.

    Cheers guys and thanks for reading. I was thinking a 6'2" or 6'0".

    I'd say your right on the mark with those sizes.

      Potatonator 5'8" will be my call or the dominator 6'0". You will appreciate and get use of the extra volume in your specific case

        I'd say 6'0" or 6'2" as you were contemplating.
