Approximately 48" x 16" as best I can measure (it is an odd oval shape).

I have four in the basement....as the previous poster suggested , they aren't easy to measure due to their elliptical nature.. So I stood mine up against an inside wall corner, with the leading edge flush to the square corner...I find that measuring from the floor to the highest point above the rope attachment hole I get 47 inches max....and I also find that my boards are 16 and 1/16 inches wide when measured from the wall to the trailing edge. I can get 48 inches if I measure a little diagonally, but I don't think that's a true measure of height....hope this info is helpful.

So, my board miss some centimeters.
I need to fix this...

I take a piece of marine board wood and cut the piece that is missing

this is the 2cm marine wood profile.

I have used sandpaper to shape the piece and then with epoxy and a special structural filler i glued them togheter

Image

And then shaped by hand

next step i'll use some carbon fiber to join the old piece with the new one and paint with epoxy and graphite filler.
