A few questions to consider:

What is the main use for your board? Yoga? Touring? Fun? Are you looking for a cottage toy or something to get you in shape? Do you want to paddle for long periods of time?

Buying your first board is a big investment and we want to make sure you get exactly what is best for you and what makes you happy! Here are a few tips from us to get you on the water.

Recreational SUP (usually a planing hull)

This is the category you want if you’re looking to play around on your board and have fun. It’s perfect for the cottage and easy to use by anyone at any age (including your dog). These boards can be purchased a little wider if you are looking for more stability and easier to paddle. A lot of people are doing yoga on these boards for an extra challenge.  This recreational category are generally plaining hulls ( boards that look like surf boards) and as such have a shape that can make them fun to spin.

Touring SUP (volume board)

This category is for people looking to spend an afternoon on their board or possibly multi-day trips. These boards are typically longer and narrower to keep you tracking better. Most will have tie down options for bringing along gear. You may also choose this board style to accommodate greater weight without sacrificing performance as they are a little narrower than recreational boards.


You know you want an inflatable if one of the following applies to you: you live in an apartment and have limited storage, you own a boat and have limited storage or concerned about fiberglass board on my deck , you want to hike your board into some back country lakes and lastly you travel and want to take the board with me.

Inflatables are surprisingly stiff and while not quite as quick on the water offer lots of advantages.

Race SUP

These boards are fast and light. They are long and lean and are what are called displacement boards, meaning they are deeper (up to 6 ”) with higher volumes. A race board is narrower than recreational models making it faster . They will also have a pointier nose to cut through waves. Some designs will have a drop down section where you stand to bring your centre of gravity down for increased stability.
