How to choose your Stand Up Paddle Board

 

A traditional mean of transport in Hawaii, Supping became a succesful sport in the last years, being more accessible than wave surfing.


Nowadays Standup paddleboarding covers different disciplines with specific gear: Race, Cruise and Wave riding. Follow our guidelies below for buying or renting your SUP board.

First of al, SUPs can be divided in two main categories:

  • Hard sups: hard sups are typically constructed of EPS foam with multiple layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin.
  • Inflatable sups:  are constructed with layers of military grade PVC.

Consider an inflatable SUP if:

  • You have minimal storage space
  • You travel often and want to take your board with you
  • You’re a first-timer or on a budget
  • You’re an adventurous paddler and need a durable board

Consider an rigid SUP if:

  • You plan on only using it at local beaches, lakes, bays
  • You want to catch waves & go SUP surfing
  • You’re a load and go paddler
  • You want optimal performance, agility, and speed when paddle boarding

SUP Board Shapes:

Standup Paddle Boards are available in different shapes for specific disciplines:

Allround: this is a shape that is good for beginners or for paddlers that want to have only one sup and use it in different conditions, from flat water to small waves. This sups are easy to ride and perfect for beginners due to their stability

Race/Touring: This SUPs are narrower and longer in order to glide faster and longer on the water, the perfect choice for longer rounds and for more sporty paddlers. Due to the shape are less stable and not great for wave riding or beginners.

  • You plan on only using it at local beaches, lakes, bays
  • You want to catch waves & go SUP surfing
  • You’re a load and go paddler
  • You want optimal performance, agility, and speed when paddle boarding

Wave SUPs: This boards are shorter and relatively wide for their size, they are super sensible to any input and turn very quick. This means that are great on waves but not good for long rounds because they tend to turn at every stroke. Due to their smaller size offer also less volume, this means are also less stable and not suitable for beginners.

 

SUP Paddles

Also paddles for SUP boarding are therefore available in many diferent shapes and materials. Normally made in plastic and aluminium, you can also choose carbon SUP paddles, which are more fragile but also lighter for maximum performance.
