Find the right Surfboard Volume for your surfing needs by finding the right surfboard models using the Board Engine to see your surfboard volume range and recommended surfboard models.
It has a built in surfboard volume calculator that personally selects the correct model and size based on your calculated volume. Our goal at Boardcave.com is to help surfers conveniently find the right surfboards and connect directly with the shapers who manufacture these boards. One of the most important variables involved in doing this is the Volume/Literage of a surfboard. The Volume of the board and the construction determines the buoyancy or float. Simply, if you ride a surfboard with the wrong volume you will not only be paddling harder and catching less waves but your overall performance and surfing ability may be dampened by you simply not having the right surfboard.
Secondly, other variables come into play (height, fitness, skill level, wave type etc.) all adding to the way your surfboard performs. Whether you are a pro or a weekend warrior it’s a no brainer, you need the right board if you want to take your surfing to the next level. This is why we at Boardcave.com ensure we prescribe the right surfboard for each surfer, allowing you to connect directly with our shapers to customise and buy your perfect surfboard on Boardcave.com.
SURFBOARD SELECTION: Use our Patent Pending Board Engine to get relevant surfboard model and size recommendations for your surfing needs. Then customise and order your surfboard directly from our leading shapers on Boardcave.com.
