    what size bowl series should i be riding if i’m an intermediate surfer from the east coast around 205 pound?

  • Kris Kuthsee

    I would suggest you consider the required volume given your weight, guilt factor and surf conditions. Check this out: http://www.lostsurfboards.net/volume-calculator/

  • I’d probably steer you towards the 6’2 or 6’4.
    But to be sure, compare the volumes of these boards with what you’ve been riding!

    But keep in mind our construction is a little more buoyant, so you can ride them a liter or two smaller than a standard polyester board.

  • Antoine

    Hi There. What size “bowl” should I choose if I usually ride a 6.2 polyester, beginner/intermediate 35 y.o , weighing 130 pounds, looking for an easy to take-off board in weak waves? Board selectors available online do not recommand same volumes, which makes it hard to make a decision on a volume basis.

  • Will

    Hello Lib Tech,

    I noticed a lot of PNW riders are using Lib Techs and looking into short boards. Which board is best for the NW (usually surfing La Push).

    Thank you.

  • The Bowl is definitely a favorite of weekend warrior Northwest surfers–it’s got a higher volume making it easier to paddle and catch waves with, but they’re still small enough to maneuver and look good on!

    The Extension Ramp is a rad hybrid shape with extra length and volume!

    The …Lost X Lib collaboration Puddle Jumper is another favorite–it’s short and wide and awesome. But because it’s a …Lost shape, it doesn’t have Lib Tech’s signature rail channels and concave.

  • peter

    i have been trying to get a 6’4 bowl in europe with no success can you point me to a dealer that has a 6’4 bowl please

  • Hi Peter,
    Follow this link to contact information to our European Distributors–they’ll have more information for you.

  • Tiree Hugger

    I’d love this board at 40ltr and a long board, the perfect quiver for an ageing surfer who needs his boards to stand up to some abuse

  • Ina Ayuegra

    Hi, I’m happy with my 5’5 Puddle
    Jumper, but I wonder what board model and size you recommend
    me to surf bigger waves (5 to 7+
    ft). I’m 5’11 ft
    and 162lb, and my
    standard surfboard is about 27l. I surf every
    day, I’m in good shape, and I doubt between the Bowl and Air E Ola models.

  • Ian Davies

    I bought the 6’2″ model of this board and it is super durable and fun to ride. I am worried that I might have gone too small because I often find myself waiting to catch waves much later (rather than paddling into them early) than my previous boards. I weigh 180-190 and I am 6’1″ tall. Do you think the 30.8 liters is enough float for a guy my size? Also, I am at an intermediate skill level. Thanks!

  • Anton Lager

    I looked at the size chart and thought it was way too far on the small spectrum, but maybe for some boards, that’s ok. If you find it hard to get into waves then it’s definitely too small for you…any way you could exchange it? Or get a different board for a fraction of the price? You’d need maybe 35L, or 40. I CAN ride a 20L board but my skill level is pretty high despite my 230lbs, and im looking at a 40L board for my next purchase.

  • schriz

    Are you ever going to make the bowl series in longer lengths for bigger and taller people?

  • robby

    Hi, I am a beginner looking for my first board. Ive been skateboarding and snowboarding for 10+ years and caught onto those very quickly. So I don’t want a board that Im going to grow out of quickly. Live in PNW and will be surfing small to medium sized waves. Looking for something I can really maneuver with. Im 5’8 180 lbs. Any boards and sizes you would recommend?

  • Patauaboy

    Hi, I have recently bought the 5’8 Sub Buggy and am loving it in the shoulder to overhead range but want something for the grovelly days and like the look of the Bowl…..it is slightly wider and a touch more volume so would make sense that it would grovel better than the Sub Buggy….whats your thoughts on buying one for that purpose?…and interested to get some feedback on how it rides…..I’m 5’9 and 162pounds and surf at an advanced level

  • It will definitely fit the bill! The Short Round and Puddle Jumper would also be good fits.

  • One of the bigger sizes would be solid for you, since you’re still learning and will be spending time on small/medium waves–maybe the 6’0″ or 6’2″. You may also love the Puddle Jumper or Short Round.

  • Kite Garzon

    Hi, I’m buying a bowl, I need to know what the measurement would be for me. Weight 78 kg and mideo 178 cm, I have an intermediate level. Surfing waves of small to medium size. Thank you!
