Considering the following features will help you choose the right stand-up paddle board for your needs.
- Hull Type: The “hull” refers to the body of the paddle board, and there are two basic types: displacement and planing. Displacement-style boards will have a pointed nose designed to push water aside as the board glides along, promoting a smooth ride that requires less effort to paddle. Boards with a planing feature a flatter, wider design for enhanced maneuverability.
- Length: The paddle boards available at DICK’S Sporting Goods range from 7 feet to 14 feet in length. Longer boards typically allow for the fastest speeds and straightest tracking, while shorter boards offer greater maneuverability. Medium-size boards in the 10 – 12-foot range tend to be the most versatile.
- Width: Wider boards tend to provide added stability, which can be helpful for activities like yoga, and they are generally easier for beginners to use. Plus, they often offer more storage space, making them ideal for longer trips. Narrower stand-up paddle boards tend to be more agile, so go that route if you’re looking for speed.
- Weight Capacity: Make sure to check the board’s weight limit; if you’re too heavy for a particular board it will sit lower in the water and be difficult to control. Also, make sure to keep in mind the total amount of weight you’ll be putting on the board, which includes yourself and any gear you plan to bring when you ride.
Look for features that help you make the most of your day at the water. A no-slip texturized deck helps provide sure-footed traction, while durable carry handles help you transport your board to the water.
