There are so many different types of SUPs on the market these days. For beginners, it may be difficult to figure out which type of board is best. Here are the basics so you know the difference between each type.
The most popular and affordable paddleboards on the market today are the all-round boards. If you are a rider who wants to explore the versatility of stand up paddling, this board is the perfect choice. The all-round shape is ideal for beginners and advanced users.
The touring paddle board is mainly used for long distances in shallow water, on the open sea, in bays and lakes.
It has a long, narrow shape that allows the touring board to cut through jagged water with ease and ride in a fast, straight line.
They tend to be longer than all-around boards and often have a tapered nose that helps the board glide smoothly through the water, increasing glide and keeping the board straight.
Even most touring boards are wide enough to be stable even for beginners. However, due to their length, these boards require a higher level of paddling than all-round boards and are significantly less stable than almost all other boards. In general, touring boards are not recommended for beginners.
Not to mention, you'll have to spend an extra three to four hundred dollars to get it. On the other hand, if you want speed and imagination, this is definitely a green signal for you.
Yoga/ Fitness Sup
Yoga and fitness paddleboards are great for everything from yoga to push-ups to stretching on board.
Yoga and fitness boards are typically between 10 and 12 feet long and between 32" and 34" wide to provide optimal stability, but also to ensure a comfortable ride when you're not doing yoga.
To give your hands and feet support and traction, yoga and fitness boards usually have a continuous deck pad.
Not only adults love Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Children can paddle on smaller boards than adults because they weigh less and need less buoyancy. But that doesn't mean they can't paddle on a board that's big enough for an adult.
We are looking for a board at the smaller end of the adult size range. A 7-8 foot board for kids is perfect for young children to play by the lake - and for proud parents, another board, to add another board to their quiver.
Multi Person Sup
Multi Person Sup gives you the power you need in shallow or rugged waters, or take all your friends with you to catch small waves.
It's a perfect tool for families and clubs to host team building, family outings, and parties to keep more people busy on the water.
Multiple handles and inflation valves to allow all family/team members to carry and inflate the board.
