  • Surfboard Weight in the Compare Tool

    I love the board compare tool on the firewire site, but I would like to make a suggestion or request that I think would make it better. I would like to see the weight of the board included as an element of comparison. I have noticed that the weight of a surfboard will also have an effect on how it rides. My TimberTek Baked Potato is currently getting a new hot coat & 2 oz glass on top at the firewire factory in Carlsbad and it will be interesting to see how it rides with the additional weight. I also bought a TimberTek Spitfire that has the thicker hot coat and glassing and I definitely think it changes the feel of the board. It think it would be beneficial to compare the weight of different models or even the same board in different construction types.
