Have you always wanted a SUP board with a seat, so that you can paddle board while sitting? Then you have come to the right place at Watersports4fun. How nice is it when you can sit down for a while after standing on your board for a long time. In that case it is an ideal solution to attach a seat to your SUP board .
In this way you create, as it were, a kayak with open sides. Then you can sit comfortably and continue to paddle forward. A SUP board with a seat is therefore ideal when you are going to cover long distances and want to take a break in between.
Where do you attach a SUP board seat?
Do you want to install a seat on your SUP board? Then you may ask yourself where you can do this best. The best place to attach a seat to your board is in the middle or slightly behind it . Do you place the seat slightly behind the middle? Then the front of the board will be slightly upwards, so that you can better break and defy waves.
Do you choose to place the seat exactly in the middle? Then you can lean back a little further and sit comfortably . Usually a kayak seat is installed on the board, so that you can sit comfortably on a soft foam seat .
In addition, the seat often also has a backrest , so that you do not suffer from your back by constantly tensing your muscles.
Who is a SUP board with seat suitable for?
In principle, a SUP board with a seat is suitable for anyone who needs it. It is especially nice for people who often travel long distances and tour on their board , where they want to rest after a while.
During supping you train your entire body, which can make it tiring after a while. It can therefore be nice if you can sit down in between, while you can continue to paddle comfortably.
On which SUP boards can I attach a seat?
There are various SUP boards available on which you can attach a seat. These models have special mounting rings on the board, making it possible to install a seat. Below we discuss a number of these models on the basis of short descriptions.
1. The Bluefin Cruise SUP
Do you choose the Bluefin Cruise SUP? Then you choose quality. This model is available in 3 different sizes and can therefore be selected according to your own wishes. Do you prefer a board with more stability? Then choose the widest version.
For more speed, the exact opposite is true. The best thing about this model is that a 2-in-1 paddle is included as standard, which can be used for both Stand Up Paddle Boarding and kayaking.
The seat is also supplied as standard with this version . The perfect deal for anyone who definitely wants to go kayaking with his/her SUP board.
The Aqua Marina Breeze also has the necessary mounting rings to place a seat. However, the price of this board is much lower than most SUP boards. For this you only compromise on the size and the maximum carrying weight.
The board is only 275 cm long, 76 cm wide and 12 cm thick. This is therefore a lot shorter than the average SUP board. The maximum carrying weight is also a bit on the low side with only 95 kg.
We recommend keeping at least 10-15 kg below the maximum . So for people under 80 kg this is a perfect board to start with.
The Aqua Marina Fusion is a commonly used inflatable SUP board that is often sold. Most people just don't realize that you can also attach a seat to this.
It is therefore without people realizing it the most popular SUP board on which you can place a seat. Looking at the quality of this model, it is definitely a wise choice.
The board is no less than 315 cm long, 76 cm wide and 15 cm thick . This makes the SUP very sturdy and stable on the water. Moreover, thanks to the length in combination with the small thickness, you can make quite a bit more speed.
We regularly see that the Aqua Marina is used in combination with a seat. This board has special mounting rings to which you can mount a kayak seat . This allows you to sit comfortably during the trip and continue to paddle calmly.
With a length of 300 cm, a width of 76 cm and a thickness of 12 cm , it is a board with high stability. So when you sit down you can easily keep your balance.
In addition , the maximum carrying weight of 100 kg is relatively low . In addition, it is therefore a perfect SUP board for a person around 80 to 90 kg to place a seat on.
The MOAI 10'6" SUP is a board from the well-known SUP brand MOAI. They are known for the beautiful design and high quality of their SUPs. That is why this board is also a bit more expensive than the average SUP.
However, you will immediately notice on the water that the quality is a lot higher. This model is no less than 320 cm long, 81 cm wide and 15 cm thick .
This gives you a lot of stability on the water and you can also move forward effortlessly. In addition, it is possible to attach a SUP seat to this board via the mounting rings on the board.
Any necessities to be able to paddle while seated
