If you've never paddle boarded, a little background info might come in handy. SUP, or stand-up paddle boarding, has been around for more than a decade or so. SUP has taken the water sports world by storm and has been considered the fastest growing water sport of the last two decades. SUP uses a surf style board and a long paddle.
How to choose the right paddle board for you
Stand up paddle boarding has something to offer everyone. You can go for a peaceful paddle on the lake or catch some waves in the ocean. Maybe you'd like to try yoga on a paddleboard to get a workout. No matter what your aspirations are, choosing the right board will make your experience more enjoyable. Let's talk about what you need to know when picking a board.
Different types of SUP boards
When choosing the right paddle board, think about how you'll use it, how it will fit your body, and how you want it to perform while on the water. The biggest decision points are the board design, as well as the length, width, and thickness. The dimensions and shape of the board determine how it will act on the water. The longer and pointier the board, the faster it will go through the water. This makes them perfect for touring. Our smallest boards are the most agile and can be used to catch some waves as well. Everything in between the surf and touring style is what we call all-round SUP boards. These are your go to SUP and by far the most popular ones, as they offer the best of both worlds. From there, choosing a bamboo paddle board, titan paddle board or inflatable paddle board largely depends on how you plan to transport it and how much storage space you have. Finally, it's all about the fins and any extras or accessories

Bamboo SUPs are great for people who live close to the water. A bamboo layer gives the board the nature-inspired look it needs matched by all those serene spots you'll be visiting.
