Assault Boardriders has just finished buoyancy testing their store inventory of surfboards and Surfboard Bouyancy Testing (SBT) are stoked to have Assault as their exclusive license at the Mount.

Owner Glenn Bright and board buyer Cale Tolley quickly saw the value of having the buoyancy marked on their boards. The information makes it easy to compare boards of similar shape, regardless of the construction and together with SBT's Buoyancy Chart, a surfer can select a board suited to their body weight and surfing ability.

Successive board's buoyancy can be adjusted based on your preference and make it easier to dial in a board that works for you.

Glenn says: "I like to be innovative and try new things in my shop. I think given the variety of boards on the market today it is time for us to provide this sort of information to our customers."

"I'd come to a point with my own surfing where I was confused with all the board choices. Now I have a point of reference for my next board," says Cale.
