Commit is mental by convincing instict that new is better. 'Magic' is what feels natural. Pro wants magic more than me. Ride some boards once or never even if same everything but feels slightly off.Just a tick up/down in tail thickess which is less than .5L can be felt, especially by them. That slight change can result in negative mental feelings in water but results look better from land. Some don't want to overcome the negative for the positive because confidence is where the money is made. They'll just paddle harder if they gain weight.

Jordy board changes besides just sponsorship were discussed in WSL commentary. Maurice Cole said he suffered most from lack of board consistency and lack of comitting to one shaper ala JJ and GM (except HI). Others have had this discussion about his boards and their volume starting years ago. If he stayed on GStar he might have won a championship by now maybe.

Agreed. What's funny is how much he liked his dad's board in the stab in the dark.

Those dims, 26L, seem pretty small to me for his size.


These are old stats. No way is Gabe 164 lbs right now. Probably more like 180 lbs.

When you get to be old the volume calculations get easy
How old are you? That’s your volume
I’m 60 years old so my volume is 60.

Or you could use the other volume calculator. You're only as old as the woman you feel. So use their age in years for your litreage. I'm 56 but my ideal litreage is 38 litres working on this calculator. Your litreage may vary.
