Firm SUP board

The heart of Stand Up Paddling is the SUP board. With the increasing presence of this water sport, the Stand Up Paddle Board has been continuously developed in recent years, resulting in very different designs on the market. The first paddleboards were longboards, which were driven by a normal paddle. These SUP boards came from surfing and were called the Stand Up Paddle Board. Benefits of the first SUP board models were that they were able to generate enough lift. This allowed this SUP board to carry both the athlete's weight and the equipment. Meanwhile, almost all manufacturers manufacture specially manufactured Stand Up Paddle Board in many variations depending on the application.

Models of solid SUP boards

The SUP board is available in the market in various lengths, widths and shapes. The lengths of Stand Up Paddle Board are between 1.80 and 4 meters. The board volume is very different. It ranges between 100 and over 250 liters. The best selling model is the all-rounder. As the name implies, it is ideal for private use. a bit wider and thus stable to tipping is the SUP board. For tours on the lake or easily flowing waters it is more than sufficient. Furthermore, there are special boards for the application in the wave. This board has not only a middle fin, but 2 to 4 laterally attached smaller fins to give enough stops on tours in the waves. Longer and narrower boards with only one, specially shaped, fin are very suitable for distance and race.

Construction firm SUP Board's

As with all water sports, the Stand Up Paddle Board is also being developed. In addition to the different designs, there are also different manufacturing processes of the solid SUP board. In the development of the Stand Up Board, the known procedures from the surfboards are used for the time being. So most of the SUP boards are made of an EPS core (Styrofoam) sheathed with GFK (Glasfaßer Reinforced Plastic). In order to reduce the weight and increase the rigidity, carbon is also used here and replaced with the GRP. Especially fancy SUP boards have no cores made of styrofoam but a kind of honeycomb core, which is also covered with carbon here. Very sturdy, solid SUP boards are made of polyethylene. These fixed SUP boards are mostly used in schools and rentals.
