SUP Board Covers
Stand-up paddleboarding, or SUP for short, has become a popular pastime activity. Comparing to surfboards, the SUP boards are wider and longer, while also easier to balance. Some people even do yoga on the SUP boards are take their dogs with them to explore nature while paddling. Obviously, the SUP board and the paddle are some of the first things to purchase, but you need some other surfing accessories as well, such as a wetsuit if you are going to be in cold waters. Buying a proper cover for your board is another investment worth of consideration.Cover Sizing
The sizing of the board cover is one feature you should not get wrong if you want to be able to fit your board inside properly. Fitted bags typically offer better protection thanks to their snug fit, but you could also opt for a adjustable bag for more flexibility. Adjustable bags are perfect if you have more than one board or plan to acquire a new board, but want to keep the cover.Storage or Transport
Another important consideration is the function of the board cover and whether it is for storing the board or for its transportation. Generally, it is not the best idea to keep the SUP inside a bag for an extended period of time because of moisture can result in blisters and mould. Thus, if you are looking for a storage cover, choose one that has ventilation, such as air vents, breathable sections or mesh.Board Cover Foam
The foam inside the board cover is essential, as it provides the bag its protective function. For extra protection, choose a bag that has thicker padding at the nose and along the ridge of the board, which are the most vulnerable parts of your board. If you want a lighter cover that would not weigh you down, choose one with less foam.Board Cover Zipper
The zipper of the SUP board bag can be too easy to overlook, but is in fact a vital factor. Metal zippers can deteriorate over time and rust if they get wet frequently. Double-teflon zippers are a better option than ordinary metal zippers. You could also look for marine grade zippers that are specifically for handling wet and salty environments.
