What is the best paddle board for beginners?

If you have just started your journey in the paddle boarding community, then welcome! We have been paddle boarding for over 15 years and like to think we have picked up some helpful paddle boarding tips along the way. Please find some of the most commonly asked questions we encounter below. 

What is the best inflatable SUP to buy?

If you are just starting out we recommend going for an all-rounder board.  These are designed to give a more stable ride on the water.

Why are paddle boards so expensive?

The manufacturing process and technology has taken years of research and development to ensure maximum efficiency on the water. There are different methods of construction including single layer and double layer. Typically double layer can offer an additional level of stability on the water which is particularly important for touring boards.

What size paddle board is best for my height?

As an average rule of thumb, the paddle board should approximately double your height. Other consideration is include the max load of the board which essentially translates to the weight that the board is able to handle. All of the boards we offer at Quayboards are able to comfortable take over 100kg.
