Our guide to Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)
and finding the right board for you!
Whether you are a beginner, family, seasoned competitor, or anyone in between, you will appreciate the choice, quality, performance, durability, appearance, and value for money in our range of our leading brands.
CHOOSING YOUR BOARD - The first step is choosing the right board for your size, experience, water conditions and how you'd like to ride. Our SUP staff share your love of board-riding. Whether you're looking for flat water fun, cruising, surfing, racing or SUP fitness, SUP Yoga or SUP Pilates – and no matter what your size, experience or goals – our staff will help make sure you get the best ride with the right gear for you.
There can be many confusing terms and things to look out for with SUP boards, and these can come along with many misconceptions. Length, width, volume, outline, rocker, tail shape, fin configuration, bottom shape and rails are just a small sample of what you will start hearing about when you are looking at a paddle board. Here at Wild Winds, we can explain these all to you, and how each one matters with every board that is out there in mind.
SEE BEFORE YOUR BUY - Most of our customers want to see, touch, feel and compare a range of boards and brands before they buy. It’s about making the right choice to get more time on the water, better performance, fun, and less hassle. We have a selection of boards from various brands that cover all the bases.
PRICE – A SUP is an investment in your leisure time, fun and fitness so you want to feel confident that your choice will last you for many years to come. At Wild Winds, we have confidence in our brands, quality and prices. We will usually be able to match or better any valid written quote from any other supplier for the boards we stock. And keep in mind that if your board riding ambitions ever change or grow, our brands will give you the best re-sale value.
