Kids love to paddle and finally they have a board designed specifically for them!
Knowing the volume of your sup is important in that it relates to your weight and what amount of volume is required to support your weight.
The metric system tells us: 1 liter of volume will float 1kg of weight.
However the amount of volume needed is relative to weight & skills. Thus we multiply a Skill Level Factor x our Weight in kilograms to get a recommended Volume in liters.
Skill Level Factor for Beginner = 2.0
Skill Level Factor for Intermediate = 1.7
Skill Level Factor for advanced = 1.3
Use this simple formula to find your target volume
(your weight in lbs x .44) x Skill Level Factor = Target Volume (Liters)
Example: You are a beginner looking at boards and you weight 195lbs. What volume is right for you?
(195lbs x .44) x 2 = 175
Board Volume (Liters) = 175
If you are a beginner rider and you weigh 195lbs. Your board should have a volume of at least 175 Liters to support your weight.
We use the boards volume to compute how much weight each board can support for a given skill level.
These are general suggestions and other factors such a width and thickness determine how the board
will support your weight.
As an example:
The 9'6 Classic has 127 liters of volume.
The suggested weight chart shows:
As a beginner your weight should not exceed 141 lbs
As an intermediate rider your weight should not exceed 166 lbs
As an advanced rider your weight should not exceed 217 lbs
