Occasionally you want the basics when it comes to using a Surfboard volume calculator by dimensions, as such there’s apps for iPhone and Android devices that deliver just this information. While some of Surf Reports readers desire to see impressive interfaces within apps, others just want the basic information and don’t care about all the bells and whistles.
If you own an Android smartphone, then one app named Surfboard Volume Calculator for Android is ideal. It’s a really easy to use calculator to gain the theoretical volume you need by dimensions and also a median volume recommendation.
The developer explains that this is a must-have app for “any surfer”, although it’s true some people don’t need such applications. The two main features include a recommendation for height, weight, and ability. Also, a way to integrate current surfboard contours and dimensions to deliver a theoretical volume.
Having this application handy the next time you visit a surfboard shop makes sense, although this service could come standard at certain locations already. If you are a newbie, then you will be able to improve your duck-diving, paddling, and surfing by matching the conditions to your equipment.
Problems with this surfboard volume calculator on select Android phones – we have heard about issues with the app not working on certain Android phones, which included the Samsung Galaxy S3 for a few users. The error message, “missing parameters” appeared for some after filling in all fields. We run some tests on a Galaxy S5 during a quick review and everything worked at the time of writing.
