Nicole Staartjens |

A good SUP board is very important for beginners . Although supping is not a difficult sport to learn, it can still be nice to practice it on a suitable board. That is why it is important that as a novice supper you know what to look out for when you buy a SUP board .

For example, pay close attention to the length and width of a board, as this largely determines the stability . In addition, there is a difference between hard and inflatable SUP boards , but we are happy to tell you more about that on this page.

What do you want to do with the SUP board?

An important question when finding a suitable SUP board for beginners is what you intend to do with the SUP board. There are various variants of supping, such as SUP Yoga , SUP fishing, touring, SUP surfing and much more.

It is therefore important that you choose a board that matches the activity you want to do . There are only a few boards that are suitable for a number of specific activities. Therefore, know in advance what your plans are with the SUP board and then base your choice on this.

Most ideal SUP board for beginners

Are you looking for a suitable SUP board for beginners? Then you have come to the right place at Watersports4fun. We are happy to tell you more about the most ideal SUP boards that can contribute to the learning process of stand up paddling .

For example , as a beginner we recommend choosing an inflatable board , because it generally provides more stability. Moreover, you can also easily take and transport an inflatable SUP board, giving you complete freedom.

An inflatable board is not suitable for all activities . So it mainly depends on what you want to do with the SUP board. Think carefully about this in advance before viewing different boards.

Would you like to buy a board for relaxation and to enjoy supping on different waters? Then an inflatable SUP board for beginners is highly recommended. Take a look at the webshop, we have made a selection of boards that are suitable for beginners in our shop.

Pay attention to the thickness and length of the board!

An important factor for novice paddlers is stability . That is why it is essential to pay close attention to the thickness and length of the board when purchasing. The thicker a board is, the more stability you experience. This also applies to the length.

However, a longer board will ensure that you need more power to move forward. So you have to think about this in advance. You have to weigh the points carefully to make a careful choice.

Would you like some extra luggage on your board or are you a bit heavier? Then it is wise to opt for a thicker SUP board with a high carrying weight of at least 150 kg .

A thicker board has more carrying capacity and can therefore handle more weight. This can also be an option if, for example, you want to go supping with several people on one SUP board.
