Race Paddle Boards

The top race paddle boards, curated by the Trailspace community. Stores' prices and availability are updated daily.

Long, narrow, pointy nosed, long-finned, and more streamlined, race boards are built to efficiently cover distance quickly. Because they are designed for speed, stability and maneuverability is sacrificed and they are not typically the best fit for first-time or beginner paddlers. Race board hulls can look distinctly different with a kayak-like displacement hull to slice through the water.

Racing is one of the fastest growing SUP disciplines, with sprint and long distance events popping up all over the country. So, if you have a need for speed and competition, a board in this category may be a great fit.
