Paddle boarding can be classed as a derivative of surfing. Participants move through the water while using their arm in a swimming-like motion while lying down or kneeling on their paddle board or a surfboard. There is also a newer version of paddle boarding called stand up paddle boarding which is shortened to the acronym SUP – this can also be called stand up paddle surfing. So, join me on my quest for the best red paddle board!
There are many different brands of paddle board with some of the most popular brands being Surftech and Body Glove. Of course, as expected, if you want to go for one of these more popular brands then it will be more expensive but, if you are taking the activity seriously, you will be making a worthwhile purchase. While cheaper paddle boards can often look great, you will find that as a result of cheap material and a low quality manufacturing process, cheaper paddle boards won’t last as long nor will they be as effective as the better brands.
It would be best to split this into 3 different areas – beginners, intermediate and expert. This is because, if you are new to paddle boarding, you won’t want to have a board designed for more experienced paddle boarders as you will be unlikely to use it to its full potential. In general, it’s important to find the best board for you and choose one you will be most comfortable with. The majority of SUP boards are around 10 to 11 feet long and about 32 to 34 inches in width. You are able to get a paddle board with more width than this however these are often a lot slower and more sluggish in the water. In regards to the ideal length for you board, most paddle boarders add about 10 inches on to their own height. You should also consider your weight as well as the area, or areas, in which you plan to do the activity.
So, what are some of the best red paddle boards?
