What Board Size Should I Get?
One of the key decisions to make when buying a SUP ATX stand up paddle board is the length of the board. Generally, paddlers who weigh under 160 lbs tend to buy the 11 foot length board. Paddlers who weigh over 160 lbs tend to buy the 12 foot length board. The 12 foot length board also works fine for people under 160 lbs who want to maximize glide and momentum on longer distance paddles. The 12 foot boards are also a great choice if paddlers of many sizes will be sharing the same board. The 12 foot boards work well for paddlers who weigh even up to 300 lbs. The 10 foot board is designed more for ocean surfing and wake surfing, but it is also a great choice for younger paddlers or smaller paddlers who do not have need for an 11 foot or 12 foot board. The 10 foot board is great for kids!
SUP ATX Quality:
In a word - Quality.
SUP ATX revolutionized the stand up paddleboard industry by offering the highest-quality boards available at a fraction of the cost of other options. What we're most proud of is that we didn't just make a "cheaper" board - we made the finest board available, at a price people could actually afford.
Since then, some others have tried to offer SUP boards at similar prices. Don't be fooled, though, by cheap knock-offs. Nothing comes close to SUP ATX quality and workmanship.

All boards come fully equipped
100% ALL-carbon fiber paddles
