Advances in technology and materials have greatly improved the construction of stand-up paddleboards. The methods and materials used will determine the weight of the SUP as well as its durability.
EPS Foam Core – Most SUPs start with a simple expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam core. EPS is very lightweight, but because there is air within the foam cells, water can seep in and deteriorate the core. Better than EPS is a fused-cell EPS core which is watertight and more durable. The Classic features an EPS foam core construction. Soft boards like the Classic are made with an EPS foam core, then stiffened with wood stringers. The board is then sealed to prevent water entry and finished with bumpers and pads. Soft SUPs are great for use in shallow water, and they're a little more forgiving when the rider takes a spill.
The body or hull of a stand-up paddleboard determines how it performs in the water. There are two types of SUP hulls – planing and displacement.
Planing Hull – The planing hull is found on all-around boards and is best for the paddler who wants just one board that can do it all. A planing hull is flat like a surfboard. It's designed to ride on top of the water and performs great in the ocean as well as flat water. A planing hull tends to be more stable, so it's best for beginners as well as recreational and surf paddling. The Classic features a planing hull for stability.
