Stand Up Paddle Board Guide

Sometimes too many options cause confusion, so we are here to help you find the paddle board that suits your needs best!

All paddle boards we sell are great quality and durable and will last you a long time providing you look after them.

When buying a SUP, first consider how many people will be using it at one time- you will need a bigger board to have the space for extra bodies!

The next question is your ability and experience in using a paddle board. If you are a beginner, or will have smaller kids on the board with you, go for a SUP that has a wide base, this will provide more stability and will be less likely to topple over.

Stand up paddle boarding requires good core stability, as you progress you will be able to to ride a board that has a more narrow tail and will allow you to turn easier.

If you are more experienced, then choosing a board with a more pointed nose and tail will give you the mobility to turn better and even ride waves!!

All our paddle boards come with fins, a leash, a pump, a paddle and a carry bag. Most are suitable for beginners, but we do have racers like this one below available too-

Many of our paddle boards can be converted to a sit on top kayak , it will be detailed in the product description if they can. (seats must be purchased seperately)

As a safety measure, it is always advised to wear a buoyancy aid when on the water.

If you inflate your board before you travel to the sea or lake, a carry strap is pretty useful to get your board from car to water. You can find these and other useful extras in SUP accessories below-

That’s it, super simple just to cover your basic needs… Now to choose which colour?????
