Good vid Latte.  McT breaks it down.  Liked the segment on thickness and volume.  Help me Achemedes' Principle, you're my only hope.

Cool...
Achemedes' Principle is interesting one, it really makes you think about if you want the float think more about foil distribution (something like a McCoy nugget or equivalent).

Echoing what I have believed and sold for years. You don't need thickness when you have width. The only thing thickness brings is loss of feel with the wave. I took some beatings here over the topic in the past, glad to see another rookie thinks the same.

I don't know crap about no Arcameeties principal, I just called it common sense.

I've been making quads for a long time.

What is "not to think fine" is that not to thick?

Not every board is wide either (I make), just the one that was sold as ride shorter. IsIs.
