How accurate is the Board Engine for finding and selecting the best surfboard model size for me?
The Board Engine has been developed with our leading Australian surfboard shapers to find the most relevant surfboards for your individual needs. The Board Engine scientifically prescribes each surfboard model size based on a complex algorithm that analyses the variables of each surfboard model, connecting them with your user profile. Once you place a surfboard order, your customer profile (weight, height, ability etc) and your surfboard order gets reviewed by the shaper. This is done as an extra precaution to ensure every surfboard ordered on Boardcave.com.au is right for the customer.
How long will it take for my surfboard to be manufactured?
It depends on each shaper and surfboard model, the construction, artwork, glassing and shape you have ordered. Most surfboards are manufactured in under four weeks, some take as little as two weeks for a standard surfboard order. Epoxy and carbon technology construction can take up to 5-6 weeks. You will receive updates on the stage your surfboard is in (shaping, artwork, glassing, shipping dispatch).
