    And this is why people who cling to arbitrary value systems, who also don't want to be embarrassed, should obfuscate their code. But bravo sir, bravo.

A ratio should mean something right?

    Thatís my gripe, because the numbers were just pulled out of thin air (.1 through .9) and have no correlation to any real world value, itís fundamentally a meaningless ratio. ďThe selection of one's surfboard should be directly related to one's body weight.Ē It is, itís called volume, back in the day we called it float and in crappy waves, I need more cushion for the pushin.

    I dunno, maybe Iís too dumb to get this : (


    The gap between how smart you think you are and the nonsense written is blowing me away.
    Got me so worked up I registered to post this knowing it's a 3 year old thread.

    GF truly is no more than the ratio of body weight (in kg) to surfboard volume (in liters). Need a definition for it? --> kg/L
    and the higher it is, the better it floats. Correlates enough?

    ^^^^^^ your the one not sounding smart here. First of all, your definition...gaff flat out said in his post that you quoted. A ratio between body weight and volume. Then you bring back up a 3 year old tread to act like an ass? Damn. Flipping people these days. Where's barry to call this guy a moron
