Key construction points to be aware of:

 

Length

board length

 

Longer boards will glide further due to increased water-line length. Shorter boards will turn better

Width

board width

 

Wider boards will be more stable. Narrower boards may have a higher top-speed and be more manouverable

Thickness

board thickness

 

Thinner boards will be lighter-weight, more manoeuvrable and less expensive. Thicker boards will be stiffer

Materials

board material

 

Look for high-quality, high-density drop-stitch material for a good stiff board. Look for multiple layers around the rails for added strength. All inflatable SUPs that we stock use high-end materials
