The Board Engine is an advanced surfboard volume calculator that not only calculates your volume, it personally recommends a selection of board models best suited to you. It does this by taking into account many surfboard design variables including your skill level and surfing frequency. Our goal at Boardcave is to help surfers conveniently find, compare and order the right surfboards, connecting directly with the shapers who manufacture these boards. One of the most important variables involved in finding the right surfboard is Volume or Literage. The Volume of the board and the construction determines the buoyancy or float. Simply, if you ride a surfboard with the wrong volume you will not only be paddling harder and catching less waves but your overall performance and surfing ability may be dampened by you simply not finding the perfect surfboard.
