Let us introduce a new figure to better identify every surfboard potential!
Historically, surfboards have been described by a basic combination of length, maximum width and thickness.
More recently the board volume has been introduced and sometimes used as the main information to choose a surfboard.
Very basic informations indeed… possibly even misleading, when you consider the complexity of surfboard hydrodynamics.
Now, using a different approach supported by the latest CFD technologies, we offer a formula to measure the real
potential of the performance shortboards, for which the planing area is much more important than the total volume.
