It is important for you to answer the question of where you want to go with the Stand Up Paddleboard. Depending on the body of water, your board has to withstand different requirements. So it depends on the shape, size and texture of your SUP.
Super suitable for beginners and recreational paddlers who want to gain experience first. These boards are relatively wide and have a round nose. You can use this board on lakes, rivers and the sea. It's a SUP for the whole family.
Race and Touring Board:
For SUPers who have a little more experience, race boards and touring SUP are the right decision. Due to their narrow shape, they are a bit more wobbly than all-round boards, but you can easily get it through a good sense of balance. It is particularly shaky to ride on these boards when there are waves. But once they slide through the water they are very stable. For longer tours of 2 hours or more, you should choose a touring board. For races or routes that are covered quickly, the Raceboard is the right decision for you.
River SUPs are very wide so that they are stable in the river and are shorter than all-rounders. Instead of one long middle fin, they have several short fins. Obstacles such as branches, stones and other obstacles are almost no longer dangerous. A leash that is tied around the waist for constant contact with the board is important to know.
Never fasten it around your ankle for such rides, as the water pressure can push your head under the water. Everyone who is into action and adrenaline should have tried river paddling once. Think of your equipment, which consists of a safety line, helmet and a sturdy paddle.
You have never stood on a stand up paddleboard or still feel unsafe.
If you feel like that, then a wide, stable board is the right decision. You will see that the wider a SUP is, the more stable it is in the water and you automatically get more safety when driving. The choice of board is not a question of height and weight, but clearly a question of ability. If you have a lot of experience in paddling and are sporty, you are welcome to use smaller or narrower boards.
The choice of board for beginners should be a wide SUP. In order for your board to have good handling characteristics, it should be stiff. Rigidity is created by high air pressure in the board.

Almost all boards are used on lakes. Beginner boards, touring SUPs and race boards are at home here. This is your area in which you feel really comfortable. You should only be able to do without wave boards at lakes, as they have too little buoyancy for paddling.
River SUP are used here. Especially when there are many stones, branches or flotsam in the water and the current is strong, you should resort to this variant.
If the current is moderate, all-round SUP, touring boards and race boards can also be used.
Driving in the sea depends a lot on ability. Inexperienced paddlers should choose a wide board. These simply give more stability than the narrow boards. All-rounders and touring SUPs with which you can also ride a wave once in a while are well suited.
Inflatable SUP (inflateable Stand Up Paddle):
The real SUP boom came about through the inflatable SUPs. They are easy to transport and can be taken with you anywhere. The previous quality problems have long been overcome and you can have fun with almost all boards across the board. Inflatable SUPs all swing in, so you have to apply a little more force than with a hardboard.
An absolute plus for hardboards is their rigidity. It doesn't sag and you will notice a difference on long tours. The iSUPs are now so good that the difference is very small.
There are big differences when it comes to surfing when the loads on the board are very high. Here you can feel the differences very clearly. If you have the storage and transport options, then you should use the hardboard.
Do you have an inflatable SUP and want it to look like it did on the first day for a long time? To keep it that way, you should take care of it properly! If you want to have fun with a well-maintained SUP board for a long time, you only have to pay attention to a few things. It's not difficult and anyone can do it quickly.
Full of joy about the new board, the questions about correct maintenance only come up later.
Especially from autumn it often happens that the SUP boards are unused in the basement or attic until spring. If a few things are observed, nothing can go wrong.
Your inflatable SUP is exposed to many influences outside. Here are, for example, sea salt, high temperatures, UV radiation, moisture and the air pressure in the board itself. All of these things leave their mark on your board. So here are a few tips for you.
