BoardFormula is a fantastic website, that helps determine just the right surfboard for you, based on a few simple snippets of information that you enter on the site. BoardFormula take the details you provide and suggest a range of surfboards that you can then study in detail and even compare side by side. To accompany the website, BoardFormula have released two Apps, now allowing you to dial in on the right board whilst on the move.
There are two Apps available, the first is in conjunction with Firewire and features their range, whilst the other mirrors the full BoardFormula website. The Apps are available to download and view on any iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch running iOS 7.0 or later.
After you provide the App with a few details, such as your fitness level, your surfing level, age, weight and sex and the type of waves you will be tackling, it quickly runs the calculations and offers a choice of boards suitable to you and the level of volume you should be looking for in a surfboard. You then have the option to save this information, to use at a later date.
To celebrate the launch of the Firewire BoardFormula App, for the first 1000 reviews that are submitted they will be giving away 4 Firewire boards, with the first board being giving away after 100 ratings are received. The BoardFormula Firewire App is free to download. The full BoardFormula App costs £2.29 to download and features over 10 000 boards in their database and includes shapers from right across the globe. You can download either BoardFormula App from iTunes and check out the original desktop version here. What do you think? Is it a handy tool to have at your disposal and are you happy to pay for the full App or do you think it should be available free?
