Are you looking for a racing SUP board for SUP racing ? Then look no further! A race SUP is the most ideal board to achieve high speeds on the water. These are therefore the only boards that can be used to participate in a SUP race. These races are often held in certain unit classes where the length of the SUP is taken into account.
The most popular sizes in this case are 12.6″ and 14.0″ . The fastest speeds are achieved in the 14.0″ category, but this is not the class in which most competitions are organized. That is the unit class 12.6″. So keep this in mind when making the right choice for a new race SUP board.
With a racing SUP board, you can reach record speeds on the water. Thanks to the length and width of the board, it cuts through the water, so to speak. There is hardly any resistance from the water, allowing you to achieve high speeds effortlessly.
In addition, you can stay paddling on one side of the board for longer periods of time without turning too far. As a result, you lose less time, which is essential during a race.
A racing SUP not only comes in different lengths, but also in different widths. In this regard, a narrow racing SUP is logically faster than a wide SUP. But remember that during a long-distance race or in rough conditions, a narrow board can actually be a disadvantage. This is because a narrow board is less stable than a wide board.
