Take the frustration our of learning to SUP with a board that is stable and comfortable, but also isn't going to limit your progression. At Paddleboard Direct - we believe in "entry level friendly" boards as opposed to "novice" boards. Often boards designed for "novices" are overly wide, and will not allow much room for progression and higher performance as you improve as paddler. Boards that are "entry level friendly" are very easy to learn on being stable and comfortable - but will still offer great progression as you improve. We believe the best style of board to start with is an "all water" style board- meaning that they handle anything from flat water, to chop, to waves. With a board like this - you can learn easily in calmer conditions, but as experience is gained, you can start to challenge different conditions with your board holding you back.

However- how do you know what size and style of board to get? The best option is to contact one of our staff of experts for a one on one consultation. We will ask a few questions (where you live, how much you weigh, and other factors in selection) and then look at several options that will be suitable. Once all the options are suggested, it can then be narrowed down to which option will suit your needs and budget best. We will also take into account the size of others who will share the board to get maximum versatility from your new SUP purchase. Other factors such as wanting to have kids tandem, taking pets on the board, and future paddling goals and aspirations will also be considered and factored into our suggestions.

What our customer say:

From the moment I placed the order online everything went well. The communication of emailing and voice call were super efficient. Everyone I talk to via email or voice were super nice and educated about the mailing process. I got the board super fast in the mail, just in time for my birthday! I'm 5.5 190lbs and the board is sure steady for me, easy to cruise in the ocean waters with my dog on the board too. This company and their products are amazing!
