When choosing a paddle board, consider: where you want to paddle, whether it is recreational or racing, whether you are a novice or a veteran, etc. Different types of paddleboards have different experiences. As the saying goes, if a worker wants to do a good job, he must first sharpen his tool.
Short board(below 2.8 meters)
Good for surfing. Good maneuverability, children's surfboards are under 2.4 meters.
Ideal size for versatile boards. Glide in the lake or simply surf in the sea.
This one is suitable for competition. The longer the board is, the faster it is and the easier it is to draw straight lines. If you're interested in racing or hiking, you'll need a longboard to race, or glide long distances to your camp.
Wide board(80cm or wider)
Wide boards are more stable and easier to stand on than narrow boards. The disadvantage is that it is slow.
Narrow board (74cm-76cm)
The narrow board is faster and less stable.
