Naming the Parts of a Stand Up Paddle Board

Apr 24, 2022
In this short video I run through the names of the different parts of a stand up paddle board. Why know the names? To give you a common language when talking to other paddlers, shops, and professionals in the industry you may interact with.

I cover,
  • Nose, the front
  • Tail, the back
  • Deck pad, to give our feet grip
  • Handle, to carry or indicate the most stable part of the board

Hope to see you on the water soon!
