FIRST TIME PADDLER? CHOOSING A PADDLEBOARD?
Have you been thinking about purchasing a paddleboard after you have been out on the water with us? Psyched Paddleboarding are proud to be partnered with Starboard . We throughly recommend their boards as we feel they make the best boards on the market, as well as sharing the same ethos as us. Starboard care about the environment and do their upmost to be a responsible manufacturer. Not only will you be buying a great board, but you will be contributing to something good. With every board bought, Starboard pledge to plant a mangrove tree to counter the carbon footprint from manufacturing. Just one of these trees can absorb up to one ton of CO2 over 20 years. As well as this they pay taxes to help fund beach cleans across the globe. Starboard also provide a free litter pick hook with every paddle purchased to encourage all paddlers to do their bit whilst on the water. All Starboard SUP’s packaging is paper and cardboard, so no single use plastics!
Starboards are the creme de la creme of SUP they have been long established in the industry and they make incredible boards. Along side that I love their ethos. I’m excited about the new Zen Lite board which are perfect for entry level SUPers and people restricted by budget.

BEGINNERS - Value Range
For beginners we recommend the following boards:
10'8" x 33" iGO Zen Lite: wide and stable, accommodating paddlers up to 110kg.
11'2" x 31" iGO Zen Lite: narrower and longer than the 10'8" brings improved glide, a great first time board for lighter paddlers.
12'6" x 30" Touring: excellent glide for paddlers looking for efficient paddling, cruising or touring.
