We have one of the solid type & can confirm that they're an excellent toy .

To be honest I can't see why they are so expensive ! My kids have as much fun on the old windsurfer boards that cost a few quid but my wife fancied the real thing so that was that...

Weight maybe? From memory windsurf boards are quite heavy aren't they?

I've never seen an SUP in the flesh so I'm not sure!

The paddleboards a lot wider & flatter so more stable & doesn't have the centre keel & box sticking down.
The price is the killer !

Definitely, that's the only reason I haven't got one yet. 200 or so is worth a punt...800 is a bit more serious!
