Firewire Dominator

Manufacturer Description
Possibly the most versatile surfboard in the Firewire quiver, the Dominator mixes a full outline with a thicker foil running from nose to tail. Firewire moved the wide point back to reduce nose profile, preserving the Dominator’s speed but without the top turn deficiencies seen from most retro noses shapes. The Future Shapes Technology lends its flex characteristics and light weight, helping this surfboard paddle like its super charged. Take Charge!

I purchased a 6'5" Firewire El Fuego and I think I got it 2 inches to long. Im not sure how much of a difference this makes though.

I'm a performance longboarder in the Uk - got hold of a dominator and absolutely love it - haven't been back on my longboard for ages. Tell you this board is the business - 2 ft to head high+ it rocks UK waves.No lie it puts the fun back inti surfing, Like smo else said on here - you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner!!

This board is magic. It makes me surf like Kelly. Go and get one cause, you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner!

This board is superfast and loose, the only weakness in this board is performance in mushy surf,

It is not the actual Dominator - it is the spitfire, which has step down rails on the tail.

Extremely versatile: Unbelievable maneuverability as quad in small stuff. Can handle size with 3 or 5-fin set ups. Sucks up waves like a hog. One board unlocks many waves.

Got a 5 '10 Dominator which I love in small (up to shoulder high) clean waves. No good when it gets bigger though, especially when choppy. Feels impossible to get a rail.

It's actually a FireWire spitfire but very close to the dominator. I'm trying to accomplish big clean roundhouse cutbacks snapping hard off the foamball but I feel like my cutback drags with a shallower radius arc than I'd like. I want more power and speed through turns to get more radical snaps and hacks.

Get it with the new (2010) Arbor Koa deck!

had a 5'11" hynson twinzer that was super fun, could hit it straight up if you got a good bottom turn, fast and slippy in small stuff. Also ride a 5'10" firewire potatoenator in smaller stuff, looking for another twinzer fish when its weak.

I'm 5'10 190lbs and ride a 6'6 Dominator. Super fast and fun. with the high volume, it's perfect for the stockier guys who can't surf everyday anymore because it paddles like a longboard but you can still toss it around like a performance board. Score of 4 for manuevarability because it is a little "floaty" and harder to bury a rail but it's worth the sacrifice for catching more waves and still being able to rip them. Can definitely handle knee-high to slighty overhead surf no problem. Love it!

Best board i've ever owned, super fast & stable, easy to catch waves. Great in anything from 1 foot to 6 foot

Don't surf more than 30 days a year so the search for THE board has taken a few years. Done! I'm 52 still skate vert and like to try and surf with the same style. The Dominator allows me to surf like I skate. In one week my skills have advanced more than the past 5years. It allows me to go after the lip. Thanks

Not a hard board to surf, but kills it in terms of manoeuvrability. I have the 5'10 Dominator.

its my favorite board in surf from 2feet to 8feet, but i am looking for MORE in any surf over 5ft. the best thing about this board is that i fit on it(im 5"6' but shorter boards tend to feel to unstable before standing) it paddles well, and its decently fast(i have ridden faster though)
