A meaningless thread about nothing - what's your volume to weight ratio?

51 years, 185+/-lbs, 5'10"
In the Summer or Fall with little or no suit
I'm is it32- 37litres
With gloves, booties and /if I wear the hooded 6/5/4 I'm usually 37-41, I have one around 42 that I use.
I have a 37 litre 6'4" I ride for all manner of conditions when I'm not feeling my youth, for whatever reason I may be unsure about the challenges the day might offer whether onshore lumps or 30+kt offshores, a heavier paddle or aggressive (-ish)jockeying crowd.

Getting older is a strange animal.
I'm sometimes inspired to try harder when I see the older ppl ripping or having a blast on shortboars guys like R Kenvin I recently saw and there was Tom Curren in Mexico, heck Noel the reviewerguyseems older but still surfing at a higher than average level.
It can be unforgiving depending on where that bar is set, amongst all the blurry clutter of age.

Some days I'm happy to get a couple rides and grateful that no one's paying attention anyway.

Volume - used to be about 33 (guesstimate see handshpaer meme). Now? Comparing to boards in shops maybe 36-38?

I'm about to go invade a longboarder spot on my 6-6 and see if I can get anything. Will report back later this PM...
Went to said long boarder spot and it was crowded and I decided to use a longer board (8' fun gun). Got waves ...but the turns I could have been doing on the 6-6.....

I like boards shorter than me, in the 24-25L range, with a nice juicy round tail, kinda wide preferably but not a deal breaker.
Facial features very important, strongly prefer a round nose - pointy nose might be a deal breaker.
