You'd be hard-pressed to find a more steady and stable surf-style SUP than this short (10 foot), wide board. It's a good all-rounder for tooling about on flat water. Just don't expect to get anywhere in a hurry: The Pau Hana is geared more toward riding waves. We tested it in stomach-high peelers and had a blast walking to the nose on this board. One downside: The cool-looking, tribal-inspired traction pad on our tester board started to peel. [$1,145; silvercreekpaddle.com]
