|Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) Categories|
|All Around / Recreational / Planing Boards |
All-Around boards offer a traditional planing bow, rounded and are generally 10'-12' in length and 30"-36" in width. These boards are great for beginners, but also great for any paddler who is not looking for paddling long distances or racing environments. Planing boards offer stability for yoga or fishing.
|Touring / Race / Distance / Displacement Boards |
Touring boards have a displacement bow, pointed to displace water as you paddle. Displacement boards are generally 12'-14' in length and generally narrower than a planing board. The displacement bow is more efficient and requires less effort to paddle longer distances. There are also hybrid displacement boards which are wider and thicker that provide more stability in a displacement hull.
|Hard Boards versus Inflatable Boards|
|Plastic (rotomolded) Boards |
These boards have a durable exterior, least expensive but very heavy. These boards are great for when multiple users will be using the board and likely to be dragged or dropped. These boards do not have a center core, and over time may bow in the center or become water-logged.
|Hard Boards - Most common boards |
There are various Hard Board construction so weights may vary also. Construction may include Fiberglass/Epoxy, Graphite and Carbon. These boards are great for individual users who will be able to control the usage of the board.
|Inflatable Boards |
There are various Inflatable Board constructions, but weights do not vary as much. These are very popular boards. They are quite durable, great for families and guests, traveling and storage is not really a factor. These boards generally come with a storage bag and pump.
