We believe everyone should be able to enjoy the water the way which suits one persons own style. At Jobe there’s no one SUP-board that fits all. That’s why we’ve created different shapes of boards for different types of needs. In this article you can find out which board suits you best!
Inflatable vs Bamboo
First of all, you have to think about which type of SUP-board suits your needs. Jobe SUP-boards can be either inflatable or hardshell bamboos. Even though there is no notable difference in behavior on the water between the two, the biggest difference between them is mobility. It is easier to grab your inflatable SUP and discover the world as it fits in one relatively small backpack. Whereas a SUP made of bamboo has the advantage of not having it to inflate it every time you go out and enjoy the water. Therefore, the question you have to ask yourself when deciding between the two, should be about where and how often you want to use your SUP.
For example: when you have a lake house it’s easier to have a Bamboo SUP and when you live in the city centre in a small apartment, it’s better to buy a Jobe Aero inflatable SUP
The city explorer
Once you have decided where you want to use your SUP, it is time to think about what you want to do with your SUP. Whether you are a beginner who just started enjoying the waters in the city centre, or a more experienced user who wants to conquer the waves, the Jobe SUP 10.6 series is your pick (and the 8.6/8.0 for lightweight users and children). With its great maneuverability and stability it is perfect for shorter distances and places with lots of curves, for example the small waters which flow through the city centre in your city!
Do you prefer the green environments of Mother Nature over the architecture in your city? That most probably means you will be travelling less curvy water roads and longer distances. Therefore, Jobe developed a SUP-board that is perfect for these kind of tours. The Jobe SUP 12.6 series is therefore your perfect pick for touring. With its sharp displacement style nose the board is able to make much more speed than the other SUPs.
When you want to explore every beautiful place our world has to offer, our 11.6 series SUP-board is your perfect companion. It is faster than the SUP 10.6 series, while still being more maneuverable than the SUP 12.6 series. These features make it our most family friendly SUP-board, because everyone can ride it. What are you waiting for: go out and discover those new places!
