asked in category: General Last Updated: 28th February, 2020# How many liters should my surfboard be?

**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.

In respect to this, 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.

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.

Subsequently, question is, 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).
