From Couch to Community & Beyond


Among the most important considerations for stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) are weight and durability — two factors that are not always mutually exclusive — as well as  – what is the right shape and materials for your needs.

If you want a board that can perform in the surf, you’ll want to be sure it incorporates a rocker, which is the front-to-back concave of a board’s hull that allows it to sit more comfortably on a wave’s face. Meanwhile, a straighter, flatter board is great for touring and steady tracking, but can be more difficult to maneuver.

Also, the wider the board, the more stable it will be.

For the boards on this list, we’ve tried to ensure that you’ll not only be able to hoist the board onto the roof of your car, but that it also won’t ding at the lightest bump or snap in half on a waist-high wave.

We also took market factors into consideration. Currently, the stand-up paddleboard marketplace is as fluid as the ocean. We are an official distributor of Bote Boards. Models come and go seemingly overnight so check back here often. We’ve tried to recommend well-warrantied products from Bote one of the most stable and established companies in the marketplace.  As for CityPaddleboards ™, we have resided in this centrally located space in Eustis at 100 E Magnolia Ave, Eustis, FL 32726 for over two decades and will co-exist with Tom’s Color Bar, celebrated destination for salon hair color.   

A final important factor to note is that if you have children who will be playing around with a stand-up board in the ocean or on flat water, we strongly recommend either an inflatable or our completely soft foam model recommendation. They must always wear life jackets! The last thing you need is a 25- or 30-pound, ten-foot-long airplane wing banging off your child’s head.  Also bring along lots of organic sun resistant skin cream.  We highly recommend Naked Botanicals ™ by Vasiliki Karlin.  

We love paddling! We all remember being beginners and having no clue what kayak, canoe, or SUP to buy.  Nor did we understand all the rafting gear, paddling laws, and how-to paddle info we’d need to get started. So we are building a City Paddleboard ™ Camp to help you navigate the often confusing world of stand up paddle boarding (SUPing) and river rafting.

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) uses a long, wide paddleboard to ride on top of the water while standing, lying, or kneeling. It combines elements of surfing and kayaking — you balance while riding the waves and use a paddle to propel and turn. You can go paddleboarding in any body of water, whether it’s a busy ocean beach or calm lake waters.

SUP helps you build muscle, improve balance and gain flexibility, and you can easily adapt it to your experience level and interests.
