Has anyone calculated the volumetric lift of a deck pad? Im assuming its less than half a Liter.
I know it adds buoyancy but don't know how much. Curious if one could be made thick enough to add a liter or more of lift to a board that was on the edge of sinking. Even if it was temporary until you got used to a low volume board. Kind of like training wheels.
It might have to be an inch thick, which would hurt your fight with gravity, by raising your center of gravity that much, but then again....maybe someone needs to market it (DaKine?).
Anyone have a spare pad and a big tub of water?
