Almost any paddleboard can be used for SUP yoga. However, some paddling features make SUP yoga easier, so put that on your radar before choosing a board.


We recommend inflatable yoga: Although you can do SUP yoga on a hard/epoxy SUP, the inflatable board (iSUP) for SUP yoga coaching offers a much better experience. iSUPs are carried higher above the water than fixed SUPs, which makes it easier to move through rivers.

Choose a Plank With a Wide, Stable Deck: Make sure your board is at least 31 inches wide so you have plenty of room to stretch and focus on your yoga poses. If you do SUP yoga often, use a plank that's at least 33 inches wide – the extra stability will come in handy even if you lose speed.

Choose an iSUP that's at least 6" thick, you'll need an iSUP that's at least 6" thick to make sure it's sturdy enough to support your workout. A thinner plank won't support your weight well and won't be stable enough for most yoga poses.

Extremely Long and Comfortable Traction Pad: Choose a board with a soft and comfortable traction pad that is slightly longer. Long padding offers space, traction, and comfort as you move through yoga poses – similar to a yoga mat.
