Confused about what size Inflatable SUP you need?

What size inflatable Stand up paddleboard do i need?

This is a very basic run down of what size board you need..


 8' - 10'4 is usually for the lighter rider/child or someone looking for a nimble board or may want to surf. (yes you can surf a inflatable but hard to perform like a solid board)  below 10'4 Gladiator sup - Starboard 9'5 surf deluxe


10'4 - 10'6 - a great all round shape and our most sold size, good for learning, leisure paddling, yoga, below Red Paddle 10'6 Ride -  Gladiator SUP 10'6


10'8 - super stable boards, great for families looking to share a board, great for a child or pet on the front of the board, we recommend this board also to the heavier rider up to 120kg, good for yoga as usually a wide board which helps massively in stability. BELOW Starboard 10'8 IGO Deluxe - Red Paddle 10'8 Ride

11'- 12'6 -  a bit more of a pointier nose which pushes less water so is more efficient and suits a paddler who would like to do more distance/touring or just wants to go a bit faster. Check the width of each model as these are a little less stable than the shorter sized boards. usually a larger single fin (helps tracking)

below Red Paddle 11'3 Sport - Gladiator 12'6 Elite

12'6 - 14' - now you want to be even more efficient, go faster and potentially race, harder to turn so you have to learn to step back turn.
