  Size for heavy paddler
  Posted by: seadart on Aug-21-12 12:12 PM (EST)
 

What size would you recommend. I'm 5'8 and about 200 lbs. I've tried a very big SUP and had no isssues with it. A few weeks ago I rented a fairly short and lightweight SUP for my sons and my sons girl friend to try out, they all weigh less than 140 and caught on real quickly, it was really hard for me to keep balanced in choppy waves. I'm looking at getting one to have around when my sons are home but that I could paddle too.
