Can someone describe for me the difference between "planning" and "displacement" hulls in terms of performance and maneuverability characteristics?

Asked by: Steve Foley
​A planing hull is flat and wide, similar to a surfboard. It is designed to ride on top of the water and be very maneuverable. Boards with planing hulls are versatile, making them a good choice for surfing, SUP yoga and recreational paddling. SUPs with displacement hulls have a pointed nose or bow (front end) similar to that of a kayak or canoe. The hull slices through water, pushing the water around the nose to the sides of the SUP to improve efficiency and create a fast, smooth ride. The efficiency of a displacement hull requires less effort than a planing hull to paddle, allowing you to go longer distances at faster speeds. These boards are good for SUP touring/camping, racing and fitness paddling.
