Stand Up Paddle Board
Inflatable or Hardboard ?
Almost everybody nows buys an inflatable SUP board (and not a hardboard) because they are portable and the performance is almost similar.
The right size ?
–> determined by the volume –> Bodyweight + at least 110 Liter. Example: 80 kg. ? Then a board with at least 190 Liter Volume. For example the MAGIC GLIDE 10´8 with 280 Liter. Fits automatically for lighter persons also. The extra volume offers stability and paddling with kids on board.
Which catagory / model ?
80% buys an ALLROUND/ FAMILY for the whole family. These work on lakes, ocean and rivers.
- There are very low priced SUP Boards at the Supermarket and Outlet which are also low cost produced (bad gluing etc.). We do not sell these.
