  2021 Board Selection Charts

  Updated guidelines for dimensions for Shortboards, Heavy Water Boards, and Mid Length & XX Volume Boards for beginner and novice, intermediate, and expert and professional surfers in small and medium size waves. These dimensions are recommendations and a surfer's options may vary depending on several factors including the surfer's skill, experience, frequency surfing, fitness, style & technique, and the waves they surf. For entry and intermediate level surfers their passion for a steep or moderate learning curve can be considered as well. See Custom Surfboard Designs and select any design to see common dimensions for specific designs.
