Paddle Board Highlights

Who is it for?

If you’re looking for an affordable inflatable paddle board geared towards beginner to intermediate paddlers then the Scott Burke Quest is something to look at. At 30in wide the board is fairly stable and is best for recreational and short distance paddling. The board is lightweight and easy to carry which is great for paddlers of all sizes and is a very affordable option with a price point under $650.

First Impressions

For first impressions, the 9’ Quest has a nice display of graphics throughout the board that make the board appear quite lively. The board weigh just over 20lbs making it very easy to carry and handle for paddlers of all sizes and with the 30in width the board is fairly stable and something that most people should be able to paddle on with ease. The glide feels pretty average which is expected with the shorter length and construction of the board and it does seem rather durable. The board is a bit shorter in length so bigger paddlers might have some trouble finding stability on this model. Overall, it’s a good price point inflatable that will be great for short distance paddling and something that the family can enjoy.

Benefits

  • Primary Use

    All Around

    Paddle Boards fall into two broad categories, All-Around and Specialty boards, with all-around designed primarily for recreation while speciality boards for top performance in specific disciplines

  • Durability

    Average

    Durability is largely a result of the board construction and shape, with more durable boards typically carrying more materials (added layers, PVC, etc) and as such adding to the weight.

  • Carrying

    Easy

    Carrying ease is determined by board weight and handle type, where a board weighing under 20lbs with a Liftsup handle is extremely easy to carry while a 35+lbs board quite difficult.

  • Stability

    Stable

    Stability is a product of construction and shape, where boards w/ 30”+ wide and 200+ liters in volume offer plenty of stability for your AVG adult while a board under 26” wide is a challenge.

  • Glide

    Average

    Glide is a result of board shape and construction, w/ boards weighing under 30lbs and designed for racing offering best glide while recreational boards normally being on the slow side

    9' x 30" x 4.75"

    Industry standard in board dimensions reads: L (length, from nose to tail) x W (width, from rail to rail at midpoint length), and H (height, from top to bottom of board at midpoint length).

  • Weight

    20.14 lbs

    Standup paddle boards tend to fall into 4 different weight classes: extremely lightweight (under 20 lbs), lightweight (20-28 lbs), average weight (28-35 lbs), heavy (above 35 lbs).

  • Volume

    n/a

    Volume is a key metric to determine how much weight a board can carry. Boards w/ 200+ liters offer most floatation with boards under 150 liters typically for high-performance surf

  • Capacity

    250 lbs

    Capacity is the max cargo weight a stand up paddle board can carry, considering not only the paddler’s weight but whatever else the paddler may choose to carry alongside him/her.

  • Add On's

    Bungee/D-ring on Tail and Nose

    Add-on’s include bungee cords, a minimalist way to haul things; Connexsup, which allows for all sorts of attachments, even fishing rods; and FCS II/Connect, for easy fin instal.

  • Handle

    Strap

    Handles directly affect carrying ease, with external grip handles (Liftsup & EZgrab) offering most comfort, Internal Ergo Grip the mid-tier comfort, and box handles as least comfortable.

  • Holders

    No

    Fishing rod holders and/or paddle holders can make paddling that much more pleasant, esp. when needing holders for the rod or having a safe place for the paddle during yoga.
