    Look at your car tires... width is in... mm, radius in inches ... this world is a mess https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-27509559

    Maybe wetsuits should also specify volume in liters... could be handy knowledge for those of us who like to pee in our suits. (Not me.)

    Eyeballs, hands and the old under-the-armpit method, in that order, are all I've ever needed to know if a board's going to work for me.

    But I also miss the banging the manual typewriters, prefer to read from things that don't require a power source and am not on Facebook.

    I agree with this. For longboards it doesn’t matter but for short/fat boards it’s important.

    34L is good. 36L with winter gear. For grovel/catch anything board 38-40. Any bigger and liters doesn’t matter.

    I get the same kind of question on fins I make. "How much does it weigh?" "Ummmmm, , , , ahhhh, , , , I have no idea but, for the most part, most of them do float in fresh water."

    "Volume" may-or-may-not matter to you in a short board but, a "log"!!?? Get out of here, you're cracking me up. You stand about 6'1", weigh close to 220, and ride a 10'2" pig. Are you serious?
