Paddle Board Size Guide

What size paddle board?

What size stand up paddle board do I need? It’s a good question and needs a little thought before you run out and buy one, however, it’s an easy one to work out using these simple methods.

To calculate the right size stand up paddle board you need to consider both Board Volume and Board Length.

SUP Volume

Use the formula below to estimate how much Board Volume you should be aiming for.

For example, a Beginner weighing 85 kg (85 x 2) would need 180 litres of volume.
