WHAT ARE PADDLEBOARDS USED FOR?
Paddleboarding is a form of surfing, whereby the person sits, lies or kneels on the surfboard and uses his arms to propel him or herself through the water. More popular these days is stand up paddling (sup paddling) which is done as the name suggests, while standing on a board and paddling with a long-hand to propel oneself through the water. Stand up paddling can be practised on still waters such as lakes, canals or rivers, but is also enjoyed in a light surf, given a little practice! In a nation surrounded by the ocean, stand up paddleboarding is popular in all states, and Anaconda is right there with you. Our Australia-wide network of retail outlets includes stores in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, along with all other major Australian cities and regional centres.
WHAT ARE PADDLEBOARDS MADE OF?
Most SUP boards are made using a glass-reinforced plastic construction using polyester or epoxy resin together with a polyurethane or expanded polystyrene foam used in the core. Some SUP boards use a hollow wood construction instead of foam with epoxy resin. There are also inflatable SUP boards. The boards can vary in length from around 8 feet (2.4 metres) to over 12 feet (3.6 metres), and have features such as padded decks and concave hulls, as well as one or three surfboard-style fins in the stern for tracking. Shorter boards are often used in Stand Up Paddle Surf competitions (smaller boards are more manoeuvrable). Race boards, which range from 12ft6in to 14ft, are usually made of fibreglass or carbon fibre.
