New guide created after in-depth looks at all the popular models on the market, includes top picks in several categories, Just Paddleboard reports
Henderson, NV -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2015 -- With many of the top models now on end-of-summer sale at retailers around the country, Just Paddleboard published a brand new guide to the best stand-up paddle boards. JustPaddleboard's 2015 SUP Buying Guide takes into account all of the top paddle boards on the market, with the most appealing in a number of categories being singled out for distinction. Just Paddleboard is a leading authority for those looking for reliable, useful information of all kinds about stand-up paddle boarding, one of the nation's fastest-growing hobbies for years now.
"There has never been a better time to be a SUP enthusiast or to get started with this rewarding form of outdoor recreation," Just Paddleboard representative Alex Pendarvis said, "Our new 2015 buying guide shows one important reason why, as there are now so many great options for those looking for their own equipment. Whether with a traditional, rigid paddle board or the inflatable kind that are so convenient, now is the perfect time to pick up a new board and get out on the water."
With many resembling surfboards in basic appearance, stand-up paddle boards are designed for a different style of activity altogether. Instead of seeking out waves to provide propulsion, stand-up paddle boarding, or SUP, participants make use of long, specialized paddles to navigate typically calmer waters, enjoying the elevated vantage point, as well as the full-body engagement that the sport encourages.
These factors have made SUP one of the fastest-growing sports of recent times. A recent Outdoor Foundation report on paddle sports in the United States pegged the number of participants in 2014 at 2.8 million, a total that has grown dramatically from just over one million in 2010. Participation in SUP, in fact, is poised to overtake rafting in the next few years, if recent trends hold up.
Just Paddleboard is a leading source of sport-specific information and equipment reviews. With one of the widest selections of in-depth reviews and informational articles to be found anywhere on the Internet, the site consistently ranks as one of the top online resources for those already active with SUP or looking to get started.
The new Just Paddleboard 2015 end-of-summer buying guide will therefore be of great interest to many people. Having reviewed a wide range of the available equipment throughout the year already, the site's editors looked back and conducted further analysis and comparisons, producing their top picks in several categories at the present time.
With many of the most capable and cost-effective models now on sale at retailers, the new guide arrives at a particularly felicitous time. The 2015 Just Paddleboard buying guide is available now at JustPaddleboard.com
