The 31.5-inch Hobie ATR-II is extremely stable – and surprisingly quick. In fact, the 11-footer we tested is one of the fastest surf-style SUPs we've paddled. It works equally well both riding flat water and surfing mellow ocean waves. It's not the very best board for either, but its versatility makes it a great choice. [$1,425; hobie.com]
