Can you demo the boards or similar size boards? That would be my recommendation.
I am struggling with a decision. I am an intermediate surfer, comfortable in chest to head high waves. I want a SUP due to a recent relocation to train and condition on flat water, yet use the board to surf probably up to waist high/chest before swapping out to my surfboards. I was looking at an 11'6" with 198 L, but feel the 10'6" with 165 L is my better choice. SUP friend and surf shop manager said I would be fine on the 165 L, I weigh 201 lbs, so 91 KG. I have ridden a 11'0" with ease and 10'6" with ease in flat water. I want more maneuverability thus a little less volume and size, but I am afraid I am messing up with that decision as the rep in my area suggests the 11'6" 198L. Just seems like a lot of board. I will and intend to plop my 10 month on it in flat water time to time to build his love for the water as I exercise. What would you suggest? Thanks so much in advance Robert! Peace- J
I would say 70-90 Liters volume
Hi, I have 64 kg and a lot of surfing experience. Also I have 20-30 hours surf-foiling experience. I want a sup foil board for winging and later sup-ing. What volume and what board do you recommend me? thanks Erasmus
Thanks for the comment. The metric system is very useful for volume calculation as 1L of volume floats 1kg of weight by definition.
Thanks for an informative and helpful video. Nice to see Americans use the metric system. Happy surfing!
