We set out on a mission to find the best paddle boards for fishing around. We researched and reviewed tons of models, looking for all of those special diamonds in the rough. Then, we compiled them all into our list of our best SUPs (stand-up paddleboards). But before we get to those paddle board reviews, let’s take a look at a couple of key things to note when you’re shopping for your own fishing board.
Type: Whether you’re looking for a sweet wooden board or the best inflatable paddle board around, make sure to check the type. That way you’ll know at a glance if this is the right one for you.
Length: How long the board can make a difference. The longer the board is, the more stable it will be, giving you an easier ride. Fishing SUPs should be nice and stable to keep you on your feet.
Width: How wide is the board? A nice wide board will be much more stable than a thin one, giving you more control and more security. You’ll want a little bit more width for your fishing SUP.
Thickness: If you board is inflatable, thickness changes how stiff the board is at the same inflation pressure. If your board is hard, the thickness will affect its stability and weight.
Weight: How much your board weighs isn’t just about carrying it around! The heavier your board, the more stable it is. So if you’re looking for a smooth ride, you might want to look a little heavier.
Warranty: Warranties are great for protecting you against faulty boards. They usually cover defects in the product or materials when you receive it. Most warranties are measured in years.
