  • Spitfire v. Dominator?

    I've ridden a friend's 6'4 dominator and liked it. I'm 6 foot 200 lbs and 41 yrs old. My shop doesn't have spitfire for me to ride in that size. Will I like the spitfire? I have a chance to get one used (6'4 as well) but in good condition pretty cheap. Everything I read says they are equivalent in volume, but the spitfire is a bit higher performance? Will I find it more squirrelly? than the Dom, notice significant difference, etc? Thanks.

    They ride very similarly. The Spitfire just has a touch more bite in situations where you are pushing it a little harder.

      The api os a dominator on steroids. Both boars are identical from the front fins up. The tail config on the spit make it for a more pivoty board,arcs are drawn tighter

        So what's the benefit of the Dominator over the Spitfire? I always read the benefits of the Spitfire over the Dominator but never the other way around (other than the pretty round tail).

          Clean outline surfs a little more fluidly I think. I don't think one has an advantage other the other in their intended conditions, they just ride differently.
          When you start pushing them in bigger conditions the Spitfire may have the edge.

            In small surf the Dom would be better. As size increases the 'Spit comes into play with its more refined rails.
