The best paddleboards for aquatic adventures
With prices ranging from £549 to £1,199
Bluefin SUP 10’ 8’’ Aura FIT
This extra-wide inflatable paddle board is designed for water-based yoga and Pilates, but it’s also a good option for beginners. It has excellent stability and a relatively light paddle.
Jobe Ventura 10.6 Bamboo Board
This rigid bamboo board is sturdy, and designed to be fast and easy to manoeuvre and control. The downside is its bulk, which makes it harder than others to transport and store.
With a weight limit at the upper end of the scale at 197kg (434lbs), this durable inflatable board can accommodate multiple passengers, while its generous width provides extra stability, making it a good choice for families.
Quroc Qi Crossover
This inflatable board has been designed for the all-round paddler. It strikes a nice balance between stability and speed, and is shaped to help you maintain a straight line.
Red Paddle Voyager
Best suited to experienced, taller paddlers, this inflatable board is ideal for longer outings. It should stay stable in all conditions; it has a tensioned cargo system, useful for camping kit; and is long enough for a child or dog to sit at the front.
