Surfboards are primarily measured by length and volume. Different boards are suited for different riders and conditions.
Are you just getting started surfing? You’re going to want to go with a higher volume board that will be more buoyant and forgiving as you learn how to catch waves.
Are you a 6’8″ college basketball stand-out? Riding a shorter board is going to feel pretty awkward – choose a board with enough length to support your ride.
Choosing the Right Board
To pick out the right length and volume for your surfboard, you’re going to want to consider 4 key factors:
- Your height
- Your weight
- Your skill level
- Your typical surfing conditions
