Stand Up Paddle Boards
Thicker than a standard surfboard, stand up paddle boards are made from epoxy and fiberglass that has been wrapped around a foam core. The board includes fins that enable the board to track in water. Paddle boards are usually 8-12 feet long and 28 to 32 inches wide and about 4 to 5 inches thick. For beginners, a wider, longer board is recommended for increased stability. Rounding out the equipment needed to paddle board is a paddle, which can be made from plastic, aluminum, wood and/or carbon fiber, a Velcro leash that wraps around your calf or ankle to keep you attached to your board, a board bag and a floatation device such as a vest to ensure optimal safety.
