Lots of people who rent from us ask the same questions as they consider their first paddleboard purchase? “What is a good paddleboard?” “How much do they cost?” “Why are some so cheap, and others so expensive?”
The thing I ask most people is how much are you going to use it and what are you going to use it for?
The definite answer is to not cheap out on a board. Trust me on this one…. the first board I bought was $499.00. I paddled it twice and took it back for a refund. It looked like a paddleboard, felt like a paddleboard, paddled like a sheet of plywood. I learned a valuable lesson on that one.
You don’t need to break the bank but you should consider it an investment in your fun and fitness lifestyle for years to come. Your first board doesn’t need to be your lifelong board and the chances are that you will likely want more than one down the road. Buy a good quality board you can grow with and if you treat it well you will easilly be able to sell it when you choose to buy another. Lots of folks are interested in good used boards.
All that being said, Liquid Lifestyle is happy to say that we are selling Sup Atx boards this season, We had the opportunity to paddle some of them in the Okanagan this past summer and we immediately fell in love with them. They look great, they paddle great, and the prices on them are fantastic! We’ve always felt that there was a void in the paddleboard market for a great board at a reasonable price. It seems like every paddleboard manufacturer wants at least $1600.00 of your Canadian dollars to get you on the water on a good paddleboard, Lighten up that paddleboard with carbon and add some length and performance and you could be spending $3000.00 or more.
The prices that we will be selling our Sup Atx boards at will be considerably less than other boards being sold in the Vancouver area. We are stoked about that and can’t wait to pass those prices onto people who want a great paddleboard at a great price!
Here’s some more info on Sup Atx.
