How many liters should my surfboard be?

I.e. A beginner weighing 80kg should be riding a surfboard around 80 litres in volume. Alternatively, an experienced surfer can ride a surfboard that's 35% - 40% of their body weight in volume. This formula varies depending on wave conditions, age and how often you surf.

Accordingly, how many liters should my shortboard be?

As some ballpark figures, an average shortboard would probably be around 25-35 Litres, while a 7' funboard would be between 40-50L. A longboard might go from 60-100L, and an SUP could easily top 250L.

Likewise, what is surfboard volume? Volume is calculated in Cubic Litres In the past, you had to sink the surfboard in a bath to see how much water the surfboard had displaced. Surfboard volumes are still measured in cubic litres. If you look closely on your surfboard, you might see a number under your surfboard, usually close to the stringer.

Similarly, it is asked, what size surfboard should I get for my height and weight?

Shortboard Sizes

Surfer Weight (lbs) Surfer Weight (kg) Surfboard Length
100-140 45.4-63.5 6′0″-6′4″
140-160 63.5-72.6 6′2″-6′6″
160-180 72.6-81.6 6′4″-6′8″
180-200 81.6-90.7 6′8″-7′2″

How do I calculate the volume of my surfboard?

We all know our standard surfboard dimensions: length, width, and height (or, in the case of surfboards, thickness). Well, the basic calculation for volume would be all those measurements multiplied together (L x W x H = V).
