Volume is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a surfboard. Your body weight, fitness, skill level as well as the type of waves you want to ride will ultimately determine how much, or how little volume you need.

Higher volume boards paddle easier, are more buoyant and stable, and therefore are better for beginners and older surfers. Lower volume boards turn faster and with less effort, however they’re not as stable and require more effort to catch waves. For these reasons they’re better for experienced and younger surfers.


As a general rule, a beginner should be riding the equivalent of 100% of their body weight in volume. I.e. A beginner weighing 80kg 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. To find the surfboard volume to suit you, select your skill level and enter your weight. NB: These volumes should be used as a guide only.

We recommend applying Super 77 adhesive to both the board and sticky side of deckpad. Another method is using a hairdryer on both the board and sticky side of the deckpad to catalyze the adhesive again. If neither of these work, shoot us an email at hello@formulafunboards.com.
