Shop for Stand Up Paddle Boards for large riders at Two Bare Feet

Large riders generally require large boards to provide the extra stability and flotation needed to stay upright. These boards are more cumbersome and require more power to paddle and maneuver, however our inflatable SUPs are easy to store and transport when deflated, taking the hassle out of owning a large board.

Wider boards will afford more lateral stability (side-to-side) and a rounder template shape that helps with maneuverability. These boards though create more drag and are generally a little slower in a straight line.

Longer boards afford more stability from front-to-back and more forward glide, giving them momentum that helps with paddling long distances, or into the wind. Longer boards require more effort to maneuver though as they are more cumersome and have mass that is offset from the pivot point (where you stand on the board).

What is most crucial for large riders is that they ride a board with a lot of volume and buoyancy. That is why this selection of boards are all 6'' thickenss, giving them the added volume throughout the length of the board. Whether you opt for a longer or a wider board comes down to your personal preference.

It's worth checking the volume and payload of any board before you buy so that you can be sure that it will be right for you.
