SHOULD I GET A KAYAK OR A SUP
One of the big questions out there - should you invest in an inflatable SUP or inflatable kayak? Firstly you need to figure out what you are going to be doing on your watercraft. Do you enjoy standing up or sitting down? How far do you want to travel? Will you be taking a lot of kit with you? Will more than one person be using it?
If you are planning to not be solo, a kayak is a better option as you can have between one to three seats. A SUP usually only caters for one person, unless it is an oversized SUP which is usually used for team building experiences at lakes or ocean clubs.
What will you be doing on your SUP or kayak? If you want something to take out on the local waterways in short stints through the summer months, then a SUP might suit you better. You can use it for fitness if you paddle faster, you can do yoga on it or you can use it as a float to jump off. If you fancy taking a light paddle with a friend along with packed lunch, then a kayak would suit your style more.
WHAT SIZE PADDLEBOARD DO I NEED?
When you’re looking at what size paddle board you need there are a few things to take into consideration.
How important is SUP length?
The length of the SUP will vary person to person. If you are shorter you can go for a shorter length SUP, if you are taller, you would go for a longer length SUP.
How important is SUP width?
SUP width is very important and can make your life easier or harder depending on your level. If you’re a beginner then you will want a wider board, something over 33in wide. If you are intermediate you can go for something at 32in wide. Then you get into SUP race territory where the boards are much narrower as they are built for speed.
