Calculate your Surfboard Volume - The Board Engine

The Board Engine

Find the right Surfboard Volume for your surfing needs by finding the right surfboard models using the Boardcave Board Engine as a guide to see your surfboard volume range and recommended surfboard models. Boardcave is constantly evolving our algorithm to find and recommend surfboards for surfers around the world. Our mission is to get surfers on the best boards, helping them refine future boards to ensure you get more waves and generally are stoked on surfing. #SpreadTheStoke

One of the features of the Board Engine is an advanced surfboard volume calculator that personally recommends a selection of board models based on the many design variables, one of which is your calculated volume. Our goal at Boardcave is to help surfers conveniently find, compare and order the right surfboards, connecting 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 finding the perfect 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 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
