Surf SUP

Surf  SUP boards are designed to get you catching waves with ease. We have boards for entry level, intermediate and advanced surfers as well as custom designs from SMIK and Sunova.

Length, width and stability are important factors when choosing a surf SUP. The wider more buoyant boards are a great starting place for beginners. Boards for more advanced surfers are designed to hold lines on big waves, get vertical, carve well and even pop airs.

Choosing The Correct SUP Surf Board

There are many factors to consider in choosing a surf SUP, this is where our first hand knowledge of the vast range of shapes and sizes comes in to help you get the right board the first time.

Smaller boards are more responsive and easier to manoeuvre on a wave. However catching waves on a small board can be more difficult as they are less stable than larger boards.

Boards are designed to work in different conditions, for different people and different styles of surfing. We highly recommend you demo a board first to make sure you get the right board the first time. Come into the shop, grab a board and take it to the waves for a test run.

Call us or drop into the shop for expert advice.

Entry Level Surf

Haven’t surfed for a while? Transitioning from a Short or Long surfboard to a SUP? Progressing in SUP and ready to take your first waves? We have many options that will get you started and keep you progressing.

There is a great range of options in store for getting you on the waves on a SUP. You will be surprised by how well these boards turn on small waves.

Surf SUP width will give you the stability you need on the board. 32” and wider boards are more stable with a greater volume that increases float. A wider SUP is a great option for entry level SUP surfers to get lots of waves, have more fun and progress quickly.

A few good options include:

  • Starboard Whopper
  • Starboard Avanti
  • Stand Up Surf Shop Surf Sup
  • SMIK E-Sea rider

Or just come into the shop – we’re always happy to have a chat and a coffee to help you work out what will suit you best.
