Stand up paddle is a sport and has several disciplines. It can be SUP touring/hiking, SUP racing or SUP surfing . Each practice has its own equipment! You can find many different boards in terms of shape, construction, volume, etc.
For the rest of the equipment, there is the paddle which can be adjustable or fixed, with a wide or thin blade, in carbon or aluminum. It’s up to you, you have to test to find your comfort. The right paddle will allow you to paddle efficiently to gain speed without getting tired.
Then, the leash is also important and there are all kinds. In sup surfing and sup touring, we will prefer the classic leash that we will attach to the ankle or under the knee. In sup-race, you should choose a spiral leash to avoid that it drags in the water during the race.
