Finding SUP reviews is an important step in the process of buying a paddle board. You wouldn't buy a car without doing a little research. And you wouldn't just go with what the manufacturer has to say, either—clearly, they have a vested interest in selling you a car. The same thing goes for buying a paddle board.
