Thanks for any advice you can give me. I’m pretty new to SUP, but I have some specific requirements and need help choosing a board, my head spins when I look at all of the options. I’m a 5’4" woman, average size, so I’m not sure of the length I should get. More importantly, though, I will be using this in a bay setting (Narragansett Bay, RI), at which times will get choppy, and I’m sure I’ll be met with some afternoon southerly winds that I will need to paddle against to get home, so I need this to be able to track and glide with ease. But, I also want to be able to do yoga on this board, so it needs to be stable and probably on the wider side. I really prefer not to get an inflatable, as this will stay in one location, it doesn’t need to be terribly portable, and I’d prefer the added stability that it seems like I would get with a rigid board. Oh, and since this is my first board purchase it can’t be super high end/ expensive.
Sooo… what do you all think? Any advice would be fantastic!! Thanks!
