    Meh. I canít say heís terribly wrong. Flat water SUP is kinda boring and feels inefficient. Rivers are fun but I end up sitting down 75% of the time and could probably use a tube.

    Picking a Stand Up Paddleboard, need SUP Help!

    But glad you all are enjoying them. I'll be the old guy in his canoe, kayak or scull.
    I do find it funny how so many I see donít actually stand up and paddle. And some have a kayak seat installed to the SUP

    A flat water board will usually have one long fin which work fine on open water but on a river you run over a piece of wood and it stops forward motion pretty quick throwing you to your knees a number of short fins work better

    also chicks dig Sup

    Flat water anything is kinda boring and dumb, and my back hurts just thinking about sitting in a kayak for an extended period of time. If we're going to compare apples to apples, is an inflatable kayak really more efficient than an iSUP? I also chuckled at "Maybe if they were $150 or $200 each it would make a modicum of sense to me" when there's ample evidence in this thread that you can buy a completely passable iSUP for under $200.

    An inflatable sup isnt going to look that much different or perform that much more efficient than a hard sup

    while inflatable kayaks suck in general compared to hard boats if thats what you mean

    Flat water is great if you like flatwater travel, I've done fairly serious seat time in both WW and seakayaks but I can't sit in a kayak anymore ( left hip ) so the 2 WW kayaks and the seakayak are sold off

    but I have kept the SUP

    My wife talked about sups for a few years and paddled lakes with friends a few times but we never pulled the trigger on one.
    Last summer we got an old board in exchange for watching a friends dog for a few days. My first time out we took turns sessioning a class one wave train and have been hooked since...starting with ordering a Hala river board at the end of that first day on the river, and slowly collecting all the necessary river gear ever since. Totally out of our element as our collective river exp. is guided raft trips and renting kayaks on flat water. It's been fun being a gaper.
    I'll say that for right now standing up and paddling through rapids and playing in eddies reminds me a lot of skiing moguls and skiing steeps.
    I'd rather be going down river but flat water is fun too...Look at wildlife, botany, geology, industry, smoke a joint, fish, drink a beer, etc. In flat water SUP I feel like I found a sport to do if I make it to like 85 years old or whatever.
    And Hala boards have the retractable fin so you're not gonna get hung up on the river.

    I enjoy the relaxation on flat water these days. All the noise of the day is gone. Inefficient feels nice.

    took the big girl out yesterday
    it definately catches the wind and takes a bit more work and loses momentum fast its 6'' thick so the nose gits wind and chopped a good bit
    compared to the other
    but its one hell of a comfy effective fly flingin platform



    i dont have much time on a nice hard sup other than a couple day on icemans
    it didnt handle much different than a similiarly shaped 4'' 14 psi that i use now
    my first sup was definitely challenging to fish from and sure installed the try not to suck and stay up sup lesson

    Definatley either end of the spectrum in the last 2 posts ^^

    I drank beer & watched/ marked every ride on the wave and was thinking "oh that would hurt ! " especaily those upside kayakers with a blade down in the current ready to rip a shoulder tendon
