Whatís the right SUP board for you? That all depends on what youíd like to do with it...

The shape of a stand up paddleboard (a.k.a SUP) is one of the most important characteristics that differentiate it from surfboards. Paddleboards come in a variety of shapes that affect the way the board handles and performs in the water.  Each shape is designed specifically for catering to particular SUP specializations. 

Whether you're planning to learn SUP yoga, train for a race, or just hit the water for a relaxing paddle with friends, your first step is to choose the right board to maximize your board performance. That might mean youíre looking for speed/efficiency or maximum stability or superior maneuverability.
