Aren’t some of the volume characteristics cancelled out when I tell the shaper glass it HEAVY?
"Liters" hell! How much Dark Matter does it hold?
I think I've changed the volume of my board simply by leaving so much wax on there and never scraping it.
I think you mean "correct coasters".
Knowing volume on a longboard is about as beneficial as spinner hubcaps on your car.
It is the least important bit of info.
Every pursuit seems to ultimately dive down into measurements and statistics - surfing, golf, fishing, car, bikes, shooting, bowling... it's part of the game, for some it's something to jaw over with friends and beers. A harmless part of the fun/passion I guess. I can lose a liter during a session so how do I use that calculation? Myself, I look, feel, and lift a board to figure the chances of it working for me. I know folks that carry a pair of calipers in their car to measure board thickness - ok with me. Liters I reserve for the above mentioned beer.
As some said, more important for HP short boards. For example, my sweet spot is 38 to 43L. For some the numbers are a bible. I just use them as reference point for small HP boards.
For Fishes, Simmons, eggs longboards, etc. I don’t pay attention to liters.
Guess you never saw the video of Rusty Brett Merrick and a few other top shapers saying they wish they never said anything about volume.
If it feels fast then its fast. Hulls feel fast. I like Hulls...
