Xtra Foam Shapers Layout Square
This measuring device is a must-have for those looking to shape their own surfboard, allowing you to accurately measure and check various elements of the design .
The square also displays two easy-to-read conversion charts – US metric conversions and a list of inch fractions in mm – Very useful!
The tool has the following uses:
Measure the width of the board at any point, using the stringer line as a reference. The stringer line on the tool also has measurements, for easy reading of widths up to 12″ up from the tail and up to 12″ down from the tail (industry design standard measurements).
The stringer line also helps to check that the board is even (the same width either side of the stringer).
Mark the fin positioning on the blank – This layout square allows you to measure how far up from the tail the rear of the fin shall be with ease. The side fin points can be marked easily. The rear of the fin can be set at up to 2″ from the rail, with toe in angles of up to 1″ available (for 4.5″ fin bases).
