  1. 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?

  2. @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
    waves. Thanks!

  3. 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.

  4. Yessir. Got two in my quiver and I really like both. Gonna pull them out
    tomorrow for the Leslie swell on the east coast!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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
