HUGE difference between a shorter planing hull, surf style SUP and a displacement hull race board over 13 feet. Strong, trained racers on 14 or 17 foot race boards can average over 5 mph for over 20 miles on the ocean. The surf boards really aren't designed to do anything like that, maybe 3mph? Wind also has a MUCH bigger effect on a SUP paddler than on a kayaker. Have fun with your new board.
