Most Stand Up Paddle Boards one market come with the following components: a leash, d-rings, some form of deck pad or bungee for storing cargo, at least 1 fin, a centre grab handle, and most importantly, a pump.

Brands and Models
We feel like this more common with stand up paddle boards than other pieces of gear, but almost every brand will phase out or remain variants after a year.
Take the ever-popular Tesco Paddle Boards for now. You might already have your heart set on a specific paddleboard, but take the time to do the research.
There might be another model out there you have considered that best fits the needs and bill.
If you find a board model a couple of years old that is available to buy, look into the specifications and see how it compares with the latest models.
Chances are, the Tesco Paddle Board will be slightly heavier or have some different features, but it might still worth investing in.
Paddleboard Size and Length
With Tesco Paddle Boards, their size and length, and thickness directly correlate to weight capacity.
So, if you only weigh 140lbs, you’ve chosen to select a shorter length of the board – therefore less volume – standup paddleboard.
If your weight at over 200lbs – or if you want a paddleboard with a child, a pet of partner – consider a longer and bigger paddleboard.
Do you want to go with the lightweight model? Or do you need plenty of storage for cargo (consider dry bags, cooler)? Other than that, size is highly preferred.
Generally, we recommend a bigger TESCO paddleboard to everyone. There is just more wiggle space and overall better stability.
One of the most common size paddle boards is 10.6 or 11 feet. But there’re plenty of lengths, sizes, shapes outside the range too.
If you’re shopping for a family, you can save buckets by shopping one longer Tesco Paddle Board instead of 2.
Two 140lbs adults can easily fit on 11 feet paddleboard.

Another main consideration to look at when buying a stand-up paddleboard is what comes with it.
This was not always the case, but several Tesco Paddle Boards are now sold with a paddle, travel bag, and fin included in the package.
This has definitely made entry into sport simple for beginners. Buying the board and paddle together saves research, time, and often money.
And, at the very least, the combo board packages make sure that you will get an adjustable paddle option that works with your standup board.
A few packages also include extra cargo, patch kits, or carrying straps and spare fins.
For instance, if you know you need to take your paddleboard out on both white water and flat water, invest in a Tesco Paddle Board long collection.
The number and size of fins of a paddleboard play a key part in its balance and tacking.
Bigger fins provide better balance and straighter tracking than smaller fins.
The smaller fins, on another side, allow great maneuverability. The high the number of fins, the more it fits well for surfing.
Most Tesco Paddle Boards have a bigger center fin or 2 side fins. Some new and advanced models allow you to remove fins to suit your requirements.

Design and Features
Depending on what you want to use your paddleboard for, you might want to check for some functions.
Possible features include attachments, bungee storage, fishing rod mounts, safety handles, and even support for cameras.
A few models even provide the best value for the money as they come with essentials that you can purchase separately.
They include leaches, paddles, hand pumps, repair kits for paddleboards, and more.
You might check for lightweight and floating board paddles. If you’re interested in SUPs, go for dual action pumps since they make inflation a lot easier.
If you’re concerned about aesthetic, there’re several attractive and high performing Tesco Paddle Boards.
Warranties are great features since you can return defective SUP.
Budget is the most valuable consideration when buying any company paddleboard.
There’re some pieces of gear I will purchase without a recommendation or at least research.
As you would expect, taking a shot in the dark and purchasing a board from a TESCO is a great option.
Research, plan, and chose a valuable board according to your needs.
If the paddleboard you live on is out of your budget, wait for the sale.
In the sale price, I am pretty you’ll get what you want. You can also find some outfitters will even sell off their fleet paddle boards after a couple of seasons.
These are the best options for starting yourself up for a big success.
Wait, plan and invest. In terms of quality, particularly with a Tesco Paddle Board, it’ll be well worth it in the long run.
