3 tips to find the right table SUP and the best by budget
1. What is the difference between a hardboard and an inflatable SUP?
Beginner and amateur paddlers should bet on inflatable SUPs (iSUPs), an inflatable board. By folding in a backpack, the inflatable SUPs are very practical. In addition, they offer extra safety on the water – for example, collisions are mitigated by the material. A hardboard is particularly suitable for professional athletes and those who sail a lot. This is ideal if you have a way to store the hardboard directly on the lake or the sea, as transportation by car, plane or train is a little more complex.
2. The right length, width and thickness
As a beginner, you must first put larger and longer SUP boards, which will give you a better grip and will not tip over easily. The rough guideline is for beginners: 80 to 85 centimeters wide, 300 to 330 centimeters long and 10 to 15 centimeters thick. The further you are, the more short and short the SUP can be. In addition, you must make your purchase decision based on the waters you want to drive. For whitewater rivers and the sea, thicker and wider planks are better for holding them even in murky waters.
3. Take a test drive
If you want to know for sure which SUP board is right for you, you will first try out different paddle rental models. Make sure the tests focus less on the brand than on the length, width, and thickness with which you feel most comfortable.
