No way can a SUP keep up with a kayak of equal length. Ive sold 15,000 kayaks in my shop and have been selling SUP'sfor about six years now. The lower center of gravity and narrorer profile of the kayak will always slip through the water faster but the big diference is the two bladed paddle never stops producing energy and forward momentum keeping the kayak on plane at all times and reducing the drag asociated with the delay as the the SUP REACHES FORWARD FOR THE NEXT STROKE.
