Paddle boarding has been taking the outdoor water sports world by storm. Ever since it exploded onto the scene several years ago taking the place of the then popular kite surfing, it has been the activity of choice for water sport enthusiasts of all stripes.
It’s a great activity for people of all levels but it’s especially appealing for beginners because there’s not really a special skill set required before you get started and there is relatively little in the way of gear that’s required to get set up. That being said, choosing a board can be quite a daunting task especially when first starting out.
If you’re like a lot of beginners looking to get your feet wet in the sport of paddle boarding, you’re probably wanting to get into it as cheaply as possible. That way if you don’t like it or if turns into just a passing fad, you won’t have shelled out a bunch of money for a piece of equipment you no longer use.
