I am wanting to buy a SUP board. I am 6 ft tall, about 180 lbs. I have been on a sup before and am fairly comfortable with them. I am wondering what type of board you would suggest. It would just be for leisure, and short distances. Perhaps with a young kid joining me on a few rides. If you could provide me some advice on what you recommend that would be greatly appreciated! 




Hey there @Skurt15 !

Thanks for reaching out to the Community! We have a few users here who really enjoy being on the water. Giving recommendations on SUP’s is becoming a popular topic! Here is a link to a recent conversation that hits a lot of the advice we have given surrounding which board to get!

Hope this gets you started in the right direction and feel free to continue the dialogue with any additional questions!
