Enter the length (in), the width (in), and the thickness (in) into the Surfboard Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Surfboard Volume.

## Surfboard Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Surfboard Volume.

**SV = L*W*T*SF**

- Where SV is the Surfboard Volume (in^3)
- L is the length (in)
- W is the width (in)
- T is the thickness (in)
- SF is the shape factor
- Typically between .45 and .65 depending on the shape

## How to Calculate Surfboard Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Surfboard Volume.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the length (in). The length (in) is given as 40.
- Next, determine the width (in). The width (in) is calculated as 12.
- Next, determine the thickness (in). The thickness (in) is found to be 5.
- Next, determine the shape factor. This is provided as .55.
- Finally, calculate the Surfboard Volume using the formula above:

SV = L*W*T*SF

Inserting the values from above yields:

SV = 40*12*5*.55 = 1320 (in^3)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

length (in) = 50

width (in) = 15

thickness (in) = 3

shape factor = .45

Entering these values and solving gives:

SV = L*W*T*SF =1012.5** **(in^3)
