you think I could ride it single fin?
PotatoNator would be the better call, try out a 5’4 or maybe a 5’6 if you
like some extra float
Hey thanks for the informative video. I’ve been torn between the baked
potato and the potatonator. I originally was leaning towards the
potatonator but still not sure. I surf in the east coast (Long Island and
Rockaway NY area). I’m 5’5″ 150lbs. I’m hoping for a good solid all around
board for knee to shoulder high waves. What are your thoughts on this?
@bcsurfandsportvideos Hey! nice vid….I’m wondering whether i should go
for a 5’8 or 5’6 – I’m 6’0, weigh 165lbs and have been surfing for 12
years. I should also add that I surf in cold water so am wearing a lot of
rubber most of the year and my home breaks are pretty mushy low-quality
5’6 or 5’8. For mush you may want to lean towards a larger size for more
wave catching ability.
Can i ride this at Teahupoo when it’s code red? I want learn to surf there
If you’re used to surfing on a shortboard I think you’ll be fine with a 5’2
or a 5’4. The 5’4 will have some extra volume if you need a little extra
paddling power, or have some really small surf.
hey im 6 foot and i want this board but idk wat size should get
Yessir. Got two in my quiver and I really like both. Gonna pull them out
tomorrow for the Leslie swell on the east coast!
The Dominator has a decent volume to paddle well and accelerate fast in
weaker surf. Plus a high rocker mixed in with a smaller tail gives you
quicker turns and better pivots. The Spitfire is even more responsive with
its step down rails. I’d highly recommend those as I personally ride a
Dominator in South Florida and really like the mix of volume and
performance. Check it!
Haha, yes. Make sure you wear your helmet and jetpack for emergency escapes
K, but I’ll need some more info to really dial you in. How long have you
been surfing? What board(s) are you riding now? Where and how often are you
surfing? How much do you weigh? Let me know that info and we’ll narrow your
selection down to a few sizes.
Oh yea. Cape May, new jersey is suppose to be going off later in the week
man. I got school so enjoy.
I saw a four fin fire wire an it was about 4 feet and i want to buy it but
i cant find it on the internet
Can i ride this board in double over head waves?
I think the 5’6 will be sufficient, especially with 12 years experience
under your belt. If you are used to larger boards (other hybrids,
longboards, etc) then the 5’8 wouldn’t be a bad call, but I think the 5’6
should be plenty of board for ya.
Between the two I’d go with the Potato-Nator. In the 4-5 days you’ll like
the slightly pulled in nose and entry rocker compared to the Sweet Potato.
However, the Spitfire/Dominator may be a better call, especially if you’ve
got 2-3 feet consistently. They have a relatively low rocker, but a bit
more than the Potato-Nator, and they’ll also perform better (less volume to
move around, smaller tails for pivot).
would the 5’4 potatonator be enough float for me, im 5’6″ 175lbs, i
currrently ride a lost F1 stub, 6′ 18 5/6 2 1/4
If you wanna film some crazy wipeouts, then yes. I wouldn’t bring it out in
those conditions however. Rocker is way too flat and the board is mad wide,
which is gonna get pretty squirrely (unstable) at that size.
is this a good beginner shortboarders board? im 135lbs, 5’11, 17 y/o. what
size for me?
that’ll do well. It might be a litte on the floaty size, but that’s ok. The
board is designed for smaller, not so powerful surf so a bit of extra foam
will do nicely.
Great video. I just wanted to know what would be a better board for a wave
that on a regular basis is around 2-3 feet and with a storm the waves can
et to 4-5. What would you recommend. The sweet potato or the potato nator?
And I’m an intermediate surfer
but that small performance board will sink in 1-2 ft waves. I’m not really
sure what board you could take in 1 ft waves actually, besides a longboard.
The Potatonator will do a little better in the small stuff, but might lack
the turn you are looking for in a bit larger wave. Down here in FL we’ve
got similar size waves, although not the quality of Trestles for sure. I
alternate between 3 boards depending on size to really dial in my sessions,
but end up using my Dominator mostly (continued)
i bet "Kevin" wasnt found anywhere near the beach when Irene passed, lol, i
rofl i was surfing during this storm i herd about this on the news
man.dat was totally wild!!!! merciless wind!!
@hayashiburger Why would you say something like that? This guy could have
@jbarrick54 shut up little boy
three mistakes in a row: 1. kitesurfing in a storm 2. not letting the bar
