Skill: Beginner Use: Yoga
Weight: 35.3 lbs Sizes: 10'

About the board: The award-winning Lotus from Pau Hana is the ultimate SUP yoga paddle board that works for paddlers of all skill sets.

The Lotus has some beautiful looks, suited exactly in line for what someone who enjoys Yoga might like. The shape design is unique for boards in this category and has a squared nose and tail, which is very uncommon to see. It is pretty heavy and difficult to carry however, once you’re in the water you feel comfortable and stable while practicing yoga. The board also has multiple attachment points that can be used to hold you paddle or attach a number of your favorite accessories. The unique design and suitability for practicing yoga gives the Lotus a well-earned “A” grade. Read more HERE.

Price: $1,599 Build: Non-inflatable
Skill: Beginner Use: Fishing
Weight: 37.7 lbs Sizes: 11'

Who is this for: If you’re looking for a very stable, non-inflatable, fishing-specific board to paddle short distances then the Big EZ Angler from Pau Hana is worth a look. This stand up paddle (SUP) board comes in the Ricochet construction, which is highly durable and the board has both ups and downs. Due to its large width of 36 inches the board is incredibly stable, just what you need for fishing. Its construction is extremely durable and strong, however it causes the board to be a bit heavier. The board has 3.43 lbs per foot which is on the heavier side for a board at 11 feet. Its shape makes the Big EZ Angler a board that can be used by everyone and was designed primarily for SUP fishing, however, it can easily double as a board that the entire family can enjoy. Retailing at $1,599, the board sits just above the popular mid-tier market in terms of affordability.

Pau Hana Viper

Price: $2,199 Build: Non-inflatable
Skill: Advanced Use: Race
Weight: 28.2 lbs Sizes: 12'6", 14'

Who is this for: If you’re looking for a fast, non-inflatable, race board to paddle then the Viper from Pau Hana is worth a look. This stand up paddle (SUP) board comes in the Vector Carbon Fiber construction which is relatively durable and has its ups and downs. Because the board is 24 inches wide the Viper is very unstable, however, it is fast. The board has 2.01 lbs per foot and weighs 28.2 lbs total which is pretty lightweight for a 14ft board. Its shape makes the Viper a race board that should be used by advanced paddlers and was designed for competition. Its construction and shape combined best fit this board for flatwater racing. Retailing at $2,199, the board is in the high-tier price point but is among the best that the brand has to offer.
