    Diving Board Suggestions

    Looking for diving board kit recommendations. Found 2 below, the only difference between them is one has 2 boards underneath, while the other one has wood all the way across. One person said theirs didn't hold up to heavier people, but both say 250 pound limit, so take that for what it's worth. Anyone have experience with these? Other suggestions welcome.

    The base on these appear to be similar shape to the imprint of the concrete that we just ripped out from the original install.

    Just spoke to my retired pool guy that's doing my coping replacement, and he said to get a springboard instead of a "diving board"

    What's the difference between a springboard and a diving board? Aren't they both springy?

    Sure I know about the professional high dive boards which have no flex at all. But I would assume these are different.

    Supposedly the springboard also called a jump board does have more spring to it vs the same size diving board which is stiffer.
