If I went to purchase a 5'4 template (5'4L) would I be able change the shape of the tail? For example I want a round tail on the 5'4L instead of squash.
Yes you can alter the shape in any way you want. The surfboard outline tempaltes are proven curves that work great but you are encouraged to experiement with shapes to really learn how surfboards work and design them to make you a better surfer.
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.
If i want a 5 foot mini simmions how would I design it
Cut 8" from the middle of the 58MS template
I like the 5'4 shape but what if a want it a little bigger is there any way to alter the length but keep the general shape.
You can modify the length and width of the templates by assembling the template and cutting the paper at the midpoint and move the 2 template parts away (or closer) the extra distance and sketch the continuous curve between them. When cutting and squaring up the outline on your blank the curve will flow and you'll get the length board you want.
