Ancheer paddleboards feature a series of budget boards for entry-level users. Although their brand focuses on a wide variety of products other than water sports, their budget SUPs have a rather good score on Amazon which we can rely on and recommend.

The Atoll paddleboards brand is more known for their one and only 11′ model. Currently available in 4 designs, the 11′ board has seen a bunch of updates over time while keeping its original outlining. Besides the boards’ section, there’s a wide variety of all the possible accessories one would need when stand-up paddleboarding is their one and only hobby. Definitely a brand worth considering for those who value traditions and like the idea of keeping the product range brief.

Hobie is most likely one of the longest-running premium watersports brands on this list. We might even go as far as saying that they’ve been the pioneers of the modern-day standards of recreational kayaks, and single-person sailboats.

Their current range consists of two 10’6 fiberglass and epoxy stand-up paddleboards, definitely worth consideration for those who appreciate values and traditions.

  • Solid paddleboards
  • Longboard surfboards
  • Pedal kayaks
  • Kayaks
