Type of Activity

Whether you are doing meditation on the water, paddle yoga, paddling down a calm river, or simply going around a lake, there are different paddle boards for every occasion. For example, yoga paddle boards tend to be a little wider to make them easy to balance. On the other hand, speed paddle boards have sharper edges and tend to be narrower to allow faster movement. Whatever your activity may be, make sure you are getting the right paddle board for it.

Are you getting a paddle board for an adult or a kid? For someone smaller or bigger? These are some of the things that you should consider when purchasing an inflatable paddle board. A paddle board for a child can be smaller and capable of supporting less weight. Yet, a paddle board for an adult has to be able to handle the weight in order to offer the best experience.

Another thing you should consider is how much you would be using your paddle board. If you are interested in enjoying your paddle board sporadically (perhaps a couple of times a month) then you won’t need a heavy-duty paddle board. However, if you are someone who’s constantly going to the lake to paddle, then you should consider a more reliable and strong inflatable paddle board.

Skill Level

Skill levels can influence your purchase, here’s why. While foam paddle boards are great for beginners because they are sturdier and easier to handle, these are often heavy and slow on the water. If you are a seasoned paddle boarder, you might want to get a board that matches your level.
