Want a sweet wood stand-up paddle board for your next beach trip? Stand-up paddleboards, also known as SUPs, are a great way to get around on the water. We researched and reviewed, trying to figure out our favorite epoxy and wood SUPs. After days of work, we finally narrowed it down to our favorite, top ten hard top paddle board. Here are some of the important things we took a look at while we were making up our list; these six stats will help you to find the best SUP for your day out on the water.
Material: What is the SUP made of? Some hard boards can be wooden paddle boards, but some are made of epoxy or foam. Most boards, however, are made up of a combo.
Length: How long is your board going to be? Length can greatly affect how easy the board is to ride. The longer the board, the easier it will be to keep your balance,
Width: How wide is your board? Width, like length, can affect how easy the board is to ride. We suggest that the newer the rider, the wider the board should be.
Thickness: The thickness of the board is important too! Extra inches of thickness in a paddleboard can add weight and volume to your board, making it more stable and easier to ride.
Weight: The weight of the board is important for stabilization as well. While extra weight can make it more secure, you don’t want to make your board too heavy to carry.
Warranty: Warranties are designed to help protect consumers from faulty products. They usually cover manufacturing defects in your SUP. They are measured in years.
