QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
How can I stretch the 9'6D template to 10'0?
To make a surfboard template longer, assemble the paper template but do not tape the middle section together. Space the nose and tail sections the approprate extra distance and tape another piece of paper between them. Sketch the surfboard template's curve on that middle section to make the lines meet.
How do I know the width of the template?
We designed the templates to be any width you want by moving it closer to the stringer for a narrower board or further for a wider board. We believe you should have control over the design and dimension of your board and not be locked into a board that is designed for someone else.
Our templates are mostly all about the curve and the flow of water around the plan shape. Width dimensions only determine the rail-to-rail stability of the board.
Does this include the rocker template?
Sorry we do not supply rocker templates. There are no standard dimensions for a surfboard rocker (along the stringer) since it all depends on the waves you surf and how you want the board to perform. Stock surfboard blanks have proven rockers that are a great starting point and maybe a little adjustment is needed while shaping to get the desired rocker you want to surf. Extensive info on ROCKER can be found in our Surfboard Design Guide
