Recreational Paddle Boards

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

Recreational paddle boards are the best bet for all-around use, including (but not limited to) SUP yoga, fitness flat water cruising in lakes, coastal bays, canals etc., taking your dog or kids out on the water, and/or hitting up some small- to medium-size surf. Wider and more voluminous than other boards, they are easy to paddle in all weather conditions, typically more stable,  and can carry more weight. Also a good choice for fishing and carrying gear. Some recreational boards will have tie-down points and bungees to secure a picnic lunch or a dry bag for longer adventures.


If you are looking for durable, jack-of-all trades board, and/or a board for the whole family to enjoy, recreational/all around boards are the way to go.
