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.

CAN I ATTACH THINGS TO MY SUP?
Yes, you can buy accessories for your SUP. It depends on the stand up paddle board you have purchased as different brands and designs have different hooks / magnets / attachments that come already incorporated into the SUP, which you can then add to.
Most SUPs come with a leash and a hook on the board where the leash can be attached to. This also goes for SUP seats. Some SUPs will come with rings or loops so you can purchase a SUP seat and add this to your board, so that you can double up as a SUP kayak.
If you want to add to your paddle board and it doesn't come with D-rings, you can purchase these and add them using PVC compatible glue.
You can add a cooler to keep your drinks cold. KULA coolers make the perfect round coolers that attach to the Bote SUPs, and they even double up as a seat.
