Though it shares the general outline of a displacement-hull-style race board, the 12-foot-6-inch Flowmaster packs added thickness and float throughout, making it a steady, comfortable ride – more Cadillac than Ferrari. This long-distance board's sharp nose slices through chop, while the 30-inch width and mostly flat hull have even total beginners feeling stable immediately. The many tie-down points on the front deck make this board a good choice for multiday SUP camping trips and long-distance cruising. [$1,430; shop.surftech.com]
