If you’re thinking of taking up stand up paddle boarding or you already do, one thing you will realize is that your paddle board needs to be securely stored. Paddle boards range in size from around 9 feet to over 14 feet so they can be pretty long and really take up quite a bit of space. It’s easy to imagine how much potential damage they might face when moving them around or storing them. In fact, most of the damage to them results when they are not in use in the water.
To solve this, stand up paddle board bags have been designed with features to protect your board from moisture, heat and other forms of damaging exposure. Whether your stand up paddle board is inflatable or solid, there is a stand up paddle board bag which can suit your needs and contribute to the longevity of your stand up paddle board. One caution before storing it in a stand up paddle board bag is to ensure that the board is properly dry to prevent the growth of mould. Have a look at the features of the following stand up paddle board bags and you will be sure to be able to choose one to protect the board you have or wish to purchase.
