I owned a 6'2" Dominator, and the Shadow blows it away, IMO,
in all aspects. Faster, carves better, more range...
Sizing depends on what you want from the board. As a
general rule of thumb, you could size it exactly the same
as you would your favorite fish. I chose to stretch mine
out 2" in length and pulled in just a touch in width,
and feel that allowed it to still work well in crap surf,
and have more range in better waves. I can easily surf it
(and actually reach for it) in overhead, good waves.
