SUP Race boards

SUP Race boards from some well respected brands, for either all water or flat water conditions

Jimmy Lewis, Infinity and Jobe offer a range of race boards that come in a range of constructions.  Carbon or glass fibre gives different price points as well.

We’ve got our favourites for our home conditions, including the Infinity Blackfish and Jimmy Lewis Sidewinder, whilst the Infinity Whiplash is a superb flat water board.

SUP Race boards

SUP racing requires a specialist board, and you need to decide where you’ll race, along with how advanced your skills are, to work out board size.

  1. Will you race on flat water e.g lakes or do you think you’d be on the sea, even occasionally.
  2. Have you got experience of narrower boards? If not, then it’s worth trying some first to get an understanding of how widths vary, in differing conditions.
  3. Carbon is lighter and in some cases is more responsive feeling underfoot, so consider this against fibre glass.
  4. Shapes make a big difference, and dimensions aren’t the only thing to improve stability, especially in narrower boards.
  5. All water boards are better if you’re mixing up training and racing on lakes and the sea.
  6. Flat water boards, tend to be more tippy as you go narrower.
