桨板专为特定的水类型，人员和用途而设计，因此回答6个问题将有助于缩小选择范围，以便为您找到最佳的桨板！ 买桨板不是那么难. 谨以此文献给第一次在正确纠结如何选择桨板板的你。
站立式桨板（SUP）是世界上发展最快的运动，理由充分。 但是你的确切原因是什么？ 它充满乐趣，很棒的锻炼，最重要的是，任何人都可以这样做，因为它很容易学习。 但是，选择第一个桨板可能具有挑战性。 在这里，我们只需要一个视频，胜过千言万语。
站立式冲浪板已经变得非常受欢迎。 很多人都被这项运动所吸引，而且很容易理解为什么。 列出的好处太多了 – 但对于初学者来说：
- 这是一个令人难以置信的锻炼。 在那里进行20到30分钟的持续划桨将为您提供令人难以置信的全身和心血管锻炼。
- 它安全且易学。 你只需要平衡你的平衡，了解一些关于重量分布和姿势的信息，找出握住划桨的方法，然后你就可以了。
- 这对家人和客人来说都很棒。 如果您拥有一个桨板，您的家人和夏季客人可能会想要尝试一下。 他们可能也会被迷住。
- 它为您提供了无与伦比的水上观景点。 没有其他水上运动可以让你站在自己的节奏，探索新的领域，只是欣赏像SUP这样的环境。
还有更多的好处，但你有机会找到自己爱上SUP的理由。 这不仅仅是一种时尚（请忽略反对者……他们只是嫉妒）。 站立式桨板运动已经存在了几十年。
SUP在夏威夷拥有丰富的文化历史。 直到最近，SUP已经作为主流水上活动到达美国大陆。 迟到总比不到好。
站立式桨板（SUP）为每个人提供了一些东西。 您可以前往宁静的湖泊享受轻松的划桨，或在大海中捕捉波浪。 或者也许你想做SUP瑜伽或者去快节奏的桨来锻炼身体。 无论您的抱负如何，拥有合适的桨板是您享受的关键。
全能板，瑜伽板，钓鱼板 All-Around, Yoga/Fitness, Fishing
湖泊和沼泽通常是“平坦的水”，我们通常说的，情况稳定。 全能板将是初学者桨手的完美选择。 瑜伽板将提供更多的宽度，以便您为瑜伽动作（山式）提供更多的平衡。 钓鱼者需要大量的甲板空间，以及冷却器，钓具箱等的系紧装置。
Bays & Ocean海
理想桨板: 旅行版 赛板
Bays and oceans can be calm, but frequently they’re choppy due to wind. In choppy conditions a touring SUP is ideal because they offer better tracking, and have more buoyancy. The improved tracking is created by the SUPs displacement hull (fat nose that cuts through rough water). Added buoyancy is created by the extra volume resulting from being longer than other boards. Touring SUPs also offer extra deck space for gear. More advanced paddlers may prefer a Racing SUP which is typically faster and narrower requiring greater balance.
海湾和海洋可以平静，但是由于风的影响，它们经常是波涛汹涌的。 在不稳定的条件下，旅行板SUP是理想的，因为它们提供更好的直线循迹性，并具有更多的浮力。 改进的直线性是由SUPs排水型船体创造的。 由于比其他板更长，因此增加了浮力。旅行 Touring SUPs还为装备提供额外的甲板空间。 更牛逼的桨手可能更喜欢赛板SUP，它通常更快更窄，需要板手更大的平衡。
理想板: Surfing 桨式冲浪板
如果你计划用你的SUP冲浪，你会想要一个滑行船体。 滑行船体平坦，宽阔，并且上升弯曲，以便它骑在水面上。 前提是要了解冲浪礼仪的规则，以避免伤害和伤害其他桨手。
理想桨板: Whitewater 白水板
白水有6级，从非常小的小浪区，不需要任何特殊技能； 到机动，一直到6级被认为无法通行。 白水SUPs通常很短，使它们更具机动性，包含一个允许船在波浪上骑行的摇杆，并且可以减轻重量并增加浮力。
首先考虑您将在何处使用电路板。 您是否计划主要在平坦水域使用您的电路板？ 例如，如果您住在湖泊，池塘或海湾附近。 在某个地方，你不太可能遇到大浪。 这些都是将SUP板放在较长的桨上，或者朝着进入当地SUP赛道的目标进行训练的良好条件。
如果您的目标是从海浪开始，那么您将寻找具有冲浪板设计特征的东西。 这可能包括推进器翅片设置（三个翅片 – 一个居中，每侧一个）。
如果你正在寻找一些可以随意使用的东西 – 这对整个家庭来说都很有趣 – 那么就要坚持全能和初学者板。 这些板设计具有经济实惠的耐用性，轻便的甲板垫，并为首次购买的桨板提供充足的稳定性。
许多人在购买SUP之前有一个大问题是他们将把它存放在他们的房子里。 为了使您的板保持良好状态并延长其使用寿命，您需要在不使用时尽量减少其对元件的暴露。 无论您居住的气候类型如何，强烈建议您在不使用时将站立式桨板时，放在室内。
- 无论您使用何种类型的板，关键是将您的SUP保存在阴凉的黑暗位置，以确保其安全和受到保护。 淡水清洗并在折叠前保持干燥。
How to classify? 怎样分类？
All Around SUPS
- Perfect choice for first-time and beginner paddlers
- Versatile and can work in all conditions
- The most common standup paddle board shape
- Family friendly (and dog friendly!)
Allround SUP boards: All-Around boards are designed to perform well in all conditions. These versatile, multi-purpose boards are great first time boards because they allow you to explore all facets of the sport with only one board. All-around boards are wide enough to be very stable, have decent glide and tracking for flatwater paddling or open ocean touring, but also enough rocker and sidecut for decent surf performance.
All-round boards are the most popular style of board mainly because they can be surfed and have the length and glide for touring. Some All-rounders lean more towards catching and riding waves (more rocker), others have more glide and less manoeuvrability so are better for touring

Who buy sup? 谁来划？选手和板子
SUPs in all categories come in a range of sizes to accommodate different size paddlers. Each SUP has a “weight capacity” rating to help paddlers choose the right size. It’s rarely a good idea to choose a SUP whose weight capacity is the same as the paddler’s weight…you want there to be some cushion because more buoyancy translates to more control.
What size paddle board do you need?
This question will be based on your weight and paddle boarding experience. Think of your ideal board size in terms of volume. The wider, longer and thicker the board, the more volume it will have. In fact, the more volume the board has, the more stable it will be on the water. Check out our SUP SIZE & WEIGHT CHART below to find out what size paddle board suits you.
Beginner paddlers will usually want a board with more volume because this provides additional stability and can support more weight. As your skill, balance and strength improves, you can downsize to a board with less volume. By then, your older board will be great for friends and family to use!
A SUP board must work for your size. If the board doesn’t displace the correct amount of water for your weight, you won’t be supported well and the board may feel unstable. Board volume and weight capacity are two important factors that affect how stable you will feel.SUP Volume and Weight Capacity
Volume: A paddle board’s volume, expressed in liters, gives an indication of the board’s ability to float with weight on it. The higher the volume, the more weight the board can support. You can find volume for a SUP listed on the specs tab on REI.com.
A short board can have a high volume if it is wide and thick. Likewise, a long board can have a low volume if it is narrow and thin. This means that a person weighing 200 lbs. who wants to ride his or her SUP in surf will look for a short, maneuverable board with a high volume.
Weight capacity: Each paddle board has a rider weight capacity, which is listed in pounds on the specs tab on REI.com. Knowing weight capacity is important because if you’re too heavy for a board, it will ride lower in the water and be difficult to paddle. You can’t really be too light for a board, so as long as you weigh less than the weight capacity, you’re good to go.
Consider, too, board length in regards to your type of car, home storage situation and length of walk to the beach or shore (longer boards are more difficult to carry, especially in windy places).
Short boards (under 9 ft.): Great for surfing and/or kids. Short boards are more maneuverable than long boards, making them great for surfing waves. Boards designed specifically for kids are typically around 8 ft. long.
Medium boards (9 ft. to 12 ft.): Ideal for all-around use on calm lakes and in the surf.
Long boards (12.6 ft. or 14 ft.): Great for fast paddling and long-distance touring. Long boards are faster than short and medium boards and they tend to track straighter. If you’re interested in paddling fast or touring long distances, consider a long board. Longer boards also give you more room for storing gear when you’re touring.
What is a iSUP? 什么是充气桨板？
Choosing the right paddle board comes down to your lifestyle, what you plan to use it for and your budget. If you’re not 100% sure what you will be using your SUP for, we will help you figure this out in the next 2 minutes. We assure you that shopping for your ideal SUP can be simple and fun!
Perhaps the most important dimension is the width. A wide board is more stable, while a narrow one is faster. However, don’t underestimate stability—a few extra inches can make a board fun for everyone, while a narrow, less stable model might frighten some folks off the water. An extra inch will make no noticeable change in your forward speed, and the extra stability may help you paddle more efficiently.
Generally speaking, longer SUPs slice through the water straighter (known as “tracking”), and therefore go faster than their shorter siblings. Shorter SUPs, however, swing from left to right a bit with each forward stroke, making them super maneuverable for “skinny” waters. On the flip side, longer SUPs take more space and finesse to turn quickly, while shorter SUPs need more strokes to cover a given distance. Depending on the water and your expectations, one may be preferable. If you need a little of each, an All-Around SUP may be the perfect, one-SUP-fits-all choice.
Nose design falls into two main categories: wide and narrow. A wide nose provides more flotation, which makes it easier to catch waves, and its extra volume is also helpful if you plan to carry gear.
A narrow, or pointed, nose cuts through the water, as opposed to riding over it. Race and cruise boards rely on the pointed nose, especially in choppy conditions.
The tail shape of a board will have a dramatic effect on the way it handles when you start catching waves. The science behind SUP tail design is taken straight from the design of surfboard tails. A good rule to remember is that more angular shapes will give you sharper turns, whereas a rounded shape will give you more progressive and smoother turns. A round or pin tail will hold the water longer, making it stable in bigger surf. A square or angular tail will release water, making it looser, more skate-like, and snappy.
“Rocker” describes how curved a board is when viewed from the side. A SUP with more rocker will turn more quickly. Surfboards have the most rocker; race boards and cruising boards have less rocker.
SUPs come with one, two, or three fins and sometimes even four or five. For boards used only on flat water in bays, ponds, lakes, and estuaries, a single fin works well. The tri-fin setup gives you the versatility to run a large center fin on calm water or two side fins (“side bites”) in the surf. The more fins a board has, the more specialized and surf oriented it is. You can always experiment with different fin shapes, sizes, and materials as you progress.
The area of grippy foam on top is the traction pad. A race board may have a small traction pad, as you’re usually pretty static in your stance. A surfboard has a large traction pad, so you can move back or practice your cross-step up to the front and hang ten. If yours has no traction pad, you can either buy SUP each separately or wax your board like a surfboard.
A personal flotation device, life jacket, or PFD, whatever you call it, get one that you like to wear, so that you WILL wear it.
Do not skimp on your paddle; it’s your motor.
You should always use a SUP leash, but especially if you’re paddling out in rough water. SUP leashes are different than surf leashes in that they’re coiled so they don’t get tangled in the paddle. They also attach to the paddler’s calf instead of their ankle because the boards are much heavier and your calf is much stronger. Whitewater paddler’s will want to wear a breakaway leash to be able to release themselves quickly if tangled in underwater branches.
Get your SUP to the water and back safely and securely.
SUP CLOTHING AND SHOES
Dress for cold water, sunny weather, and rainy, windy weather.
Keep your lunch and extra clothes from soaking, and then set them on the shoreline.
WHISTLE AND SAFETY GEAR
Remember to always have an audible and visual signal with you.
If you’re looking for instruction, check in with one of our qualified guides for an INTRO TO STAND-UP PADDLING session. The most important thing is to determine the right board for you.
How Much to buy SUP? 购买桨板的预算
Getting it right first time will save you hundreds of dollars and put the biggest big smile on your face. It is a crowded and confusing market and we have tried and tested just about every brand out there and distilled it down to the best boards we can lay our hands on.
Inflatable SUPs feature PVC exteriors with drop-stitch construction that create an air core. They come with a pump for inflating the board and a storage bag for when it’s not in use. While inflatables are easier to store and transport, they tend to ride higher in the water and have a bit more flex than solid boards, which give some paddlers a less stable feel.
Why get an inflatable SUP:
- You have limited storage space: If you live in a small house, condo or apartment, you may not have room for a large solid board. Inflatable SUPs are compact when deflated and can easily be stowed in small spaces, like a closet or the trunk of a car.
- You’re traveling: If your travels take you to a lake or the sea, bring along an inflatable SUP. Packed away in its storage bag, an inflatable can be checked on an airplane or stowed in a train, bus or car. Most storage bags have backpack straps for easy carrying.
- You’re hiking to a lake: If you’re headed to an alpine lake and want to paddle, you certainly cannot carry a solid board. An inflatable stowed in its storage bag is still heavy, but it’s pretty much your only option.
- You’re paddling whitewater: Like a raft or inflatable kayak, an inflatable SUP is better suited to handle bumps up against rocks and logs than a solid board.
- You like SUP yoga: You don’t have to get an inflatable for SUP yoga, but they tend to be a bit softer than solid boards, making them more comfortable for yoga poses.
The more you pay the lighter the board becomes and the more responsive it is and easier to handle. As a rule of thumb 1.2kg per foot of length is a good starting weight: 10’6 – 12.5kg.
Get a reputable, quality, brand-name SUP board and you will get to-notch construction and better re-sale.
A word, a normal SUP board (only board) price ex-factory should be less than 170$ @2017, but actually, it is more important to choose a paddle. (head on desk after reading above.)
