I've used my 14'x28" wide Tahoe Thunderbird amongst other 14' day touring kayaks that were at widest 25" and had no problem keeping pace if not going a bit faster, on a touring pace not racing. Something to do with a longer lever, quicker stroke and full body engagement I'd think. Now I'm not going to guarantee those results over an entire day for a 20+ mile paddle. SUP is a rather good work out and after 6 miles I need to be fed.
YMMV (with caffeination and snack levels of course)
