  • More volume calculators to play with

    http://www.boardcave.com I think it's ok to post this as Nev has legend Statius here. It's interesting to compare with rusty,s and ci,s. But there is a wee description with the levels ex 1to 5 five been excellent at all aspects of surfing.

    I really like the ...Lost volume calculator. Much more accurate in my opinion. By using a guild factor you can really narrow down each of your boards quite easily.

      Don't you need to know your preferred volume to work out the guild factor thing though? Seems a bit pointless to me. Maybe I'm missing the point?

        Hi Phill,

        there is a guide on there that gives recommended Guild Factors. I've put on 10kg in the last 2 years. so my preferred volume from 2 years ago is irrelevant. My guild factor however, is the same. .39

              Hey Phil, the GF is easy. You put in your weight, line that up with your Guild Factor (which it tells you very clearly how to work out via some different factors) and it points to what volume you should be riding. And there's a huge difference between the two outcomes. The GF has me at around 35 litres, whereas FW one tells me I should be riding around 50 litres. Which would be great if I wanted to use a board to commute, but I'd prefer to go surfing on it.

                Yeah the FW model is useless imho unless you lie actively about age, fitness and ability. The Lost guilt factor model does work very well. I'll check out the CI model - thanks PMorgan !!!!!
