board sizes, shapes and fin assembly had been discussed since the beginning of time (or the 60ies for surfers)
Same for wake boards, twin tips, skim boards, ... - all have their own dynamics, purpose and therefor preference with riders.
dam, you are right. I am such a rainmaker for paradesBrent4336 wrote: Shit! almost everything on here has been discussed to death and then some. Might as well shut er down.
You're correct for "production" surfboards of the same model usually they follow the ruleBrent4336 wrote:Ive never seen production or custom surfboards follow that pattern through their size range. Some will preserve more width or introduce more hip or whatever as they size down within a range, but I haven't seen a model of board that is wider in its smaller sizes than in its larger sizes.
Just a quick look at any surfboard site like rusty, channel island or firewire and you can see the scaling of width and thickness within a model line scales in the same direction as lenght.
so then you can re-read my first answer.Manuel V wrote:

shorter board = less width and longer board = more width probably assuming that the shorter board is for a lighter guy and the longer board is for a heavier guy.
Sorry but probably I don't explain correctly my question about surfboards...............
When I talk about surfboards I don't specify that I refer to "custom" surfboards (I prefer to buy custom surfboards) for the same person. So if I like a surfboard model and I want
the same model but shorter I would ask the shaper for more width and tickness.
So I was not comparing apples to apples.
Because I was comparing customs surfboards with production kite surfboards
