The Right Board For You

HIKS inflatable paddleboards are great for everyday recreational paddling. They’re easy to transport and take hardly any room to store.


HIKS paddleboards come as a package, which include the board, paddle, pump, skeg, repair kit, water-resistant backpack, and leash.


Paddleboards come in a wide range of shapes and sizes.  It is important to choose the right one for you. Narrowing down your options is quite simple. Here are some factors you should consider when choosing your inflatable paddleboard:

  • The weight of the person/s that will be using the board. Make sure you choose a board that will accommodate the largest person using the board.


  • A shorter board will be easier to manoeuvre through the water, while a longer paddleboard will have more stability. A board between 10’ & 12’ is the ideal length for most paddleboarders, especially beginners.


  • The wider the sup board, the more stable it will be, thus making it easier to balance on. The narrower the board, the faster it will be. 30” plus is an ideal width for most beginners.


When buying a board, no amount of research or advice compares to actually taking a board on the water yourself.  This is why at HIKS, we offer you a ‘try before you buy’ service at our base in Tollesbury, Essex.


If you have any questions, please contact us on 0203 507 0015. We will be happy to help select the right board for you. (Even if you don't buy from us we'd still be very glad to assist.)    


Please remember, whichever board you choose, it’s important that you also choose an appropriate lifejacket.
