Stand Up Paddle Board Styles and Shapes

Apr 26, 2022
In this video I talk about Stand Up Paddle Board styles and shapes. I discuss the difference between a planning board, recognizable by the rounded nose, and a displacement or touring board, aka pointy boards.

I also discuss considerations when you are choosing which board is right for you

I talk about,
- board shape
- board volume
- style of fins and why sometimes there are multiple 
- how wind affects the different styles of boards
- and the general pluses and minuses of each type

If you are looking to learn more about Stand Up Paddling, how to get into the sport, or how to build on your skills, check out my SUP Lessons and SUP Certifications.

Hope to see you on the water soon!
