If you are an intermediate or expert surfer, you probably already have an idea about the type of DHD surfboard that works best for you. However, if you are a beginner, you may decide to simply start off with a general beginner board until you have developed your own style and preference. The truth is, even an adept surfer may have multiple surfboards types to facilitate various wave types and conditions and this is why DHD have surfboards in numerous shapes and sizes.DHD Surfboard Skill Levels
DHD surfboards have various skill levels associated with their designs. Beginner surfboards aim to be stable with a lot of volume, so they tend to be about 7 or 8 feet long, at least 22 inches wide, and approximately 3 inches in depth. Beginners are also drawn to soft top boards because they provide a greater level of comfort and float better. The measurements of this board makes it easier to paddle into waves without being too cumbersome to line-up. Surfers with a little more experience tend to lean toward smaller sized fiberglass boards based on their own style and preference.Height and Weight factors
Similar to how age and fitness makes an impact, the height and weight of an individual may also affect the surfboard chosen. It is safe to say that taller persons will need a bigger board. For instance, someone who is 6 feet tall and weighing maybe 72 kilograms can probably use a 26L to 28L volume board such as the DHD Ducks Nuts model.Matching the Waves
Many surfers own multiple boards because wave types can differ due to location, weather patterns, and other factors. You may use a longboard for day to day waves until the waves pick up and start to get larger. With DHD, you will be able to select a board based on all these factors as each board will indicate its recommended wave height, wave type, and skill level. For instance, the MF DNA is recommended for a wave height of 1 to 4 feet, intermediate to advanced skill levels, and beach break, point break, or reef break waves. The selection of other DHD surfing equipment may also be broken down using the aforementioned criteria.
